Melted Chocolate on My Nails

20 Mar

So okay… they’re not actual melted chocolates but I just got a new crack nail polish from The Face Shop Crack Collection in BR801 and when it cracked on the nails, they look like melted chocolates. I looked for a “foil” looking nail polish from my collection and found a Caronia Golden Bronze which was given by a friend last Christmas.

I first painted my nails with Caronia Golden Bronze.

After my “foil” nail polish dried up, I applied a layer of The Face Shop Crack Collection BR801. I made sure to be quick and to get as much nail polish as it dries fast. I usually just put a layer of crack nail polish to have more “crack” effects later on.

I put a top coat after to give my nails some sheen, or else the crack effect would look matte.

So here’s how it looks…

They look like melted chocolates, don’t they? Or maybe it’s just me 😉

The products that I used are Tony Moly Nail Enamel Basic TC01 Top Coat, The Face Shop Crack Collection BR801, Caronia Golden Bronze and The Face Shop Nail Nutrition Coat.

So, how do you like crack nail polishes? Care to share?

Cheers 🙂

 

Feeling homesick

9 Feb

I was feeling homesick yesterday so I decided to drop by the Filipino store. At first, all I wanted was to get some chips but then there was none so I looked around and see what I can get. I decided to just get some canned food and instant noodles. I’m not really into instant noodles much but when I saw some television commercials about it, it made me want to try and eat it too. The power of advertising, eh?

The other day, I went to Goldilocks in Siam Square since I was craving for polvoron but sadly, there was none.

So, I got ensaymada and sans rival instead.

Yummy! The bakeshop goodies taste like home. I have one gripe though, the sans rival was not packaged well, at least in a plastic bag or container. It was unhygienically placed in a paper bag without any cover at all. Paging Goldilocks Thailand, hope you fix this please.

Of course, they are pricey since they are imported goods but it’s just one (or two?) of the days that I really miss home. So, I indulged!

Philippine Tourism

I came across the second version of “Pilipinas, Tara Na” music video showcasing the beauty of the Philippines and decided to post it here.

I looked for the first version, so here it is.
