The 7th Lunar Month has started!

So the Hungry Ghost Festival has started! For those of you who have not heard of this, it's the Asian version of Halloween. Except it's a full month long where the Gates of Hell are thrown open for those in the afterlife to visit.
 
Heh. I chose something oriental for today's manicure, but not because of the festival. It was just something I had wanted to do ever since I laid eyes again on this particular Revlon polish. Somehow, the image came straight to my mind, and I just had to do it once.
 
 




 
 
Base polish: Revlon Smoldering
Stamping polish: Konad Black
Stamping plate: Moyou London Suki Collection 04
 
It was a cloudy, after rain morning when I grabbed these pics. But it was the perfect kind of weather to showcase the lovely silver-pink-green multi-chrome Revlon.
 
By the way, I'm now really in the thick of my renovations. So posting is really becoming an issue. Hopefully the renovations will be done soon (especially since my budget has been completely busted through its roof). I do hope to resume regular blogging by October (Please! I wanna do Halloween manicures!) but for now, it'd be ad-hoc posts k! So please bear with me!

Happy Birthday to Me!

It's my birthday today!

Ok, I didn't go and paint the town (or the nails) red. Instead I had myself a really good meal with good friends. Spent some time on my own as well since I really needed some peace and solitude. And that included some much needed nail art time!
 
Well, at least it feels like its been a while since I had tried to do something decent!
 
Unfortunately, it's been rainy these past couple of days. So no bright sunlight pictures (which is a shame since I really, really liked this set of nails!)

Revlon Starry Pink

I actually had pictures of some swatches done from a while back. Just that I never got around to editing them for the blog. Well, at least not until the recent PH.

Happy 52nd Birthday Singapore!

Apologies! I've been tied up with quite a few things at work and with my renovations! My new place is coming along quite nicely even though there were a couple of delays here and there. I have to say though, it's been so busy for me that I don't even have time for my nails. A good friend even commented that it was the first time he's seen me without polish on!
 
But I just had to pull a fast one today! It's Singapore's 52nd birthday!
And so I just did a really quick stamp this morning in my beloved country's colours. In fact, so fast that I smudged a couple of them while top-coating. Unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of time to re-do so it's just make do!
 
 





Items used:
Base polish - Zoya Sooki
Stamping polish - Konad White
