A Little Hello from Me (And NO, I'm Not Dead)

I've been away for too long and I really miss blogging. As of late, life has been a bit hectic, I graduated and went to my home country for a while. But here I am back with more nail posts.

So today, I'm going to share with you one ombre nail art that I did a couple months ago but haven't post it here. This is a very soft pastel-y ombre of blue to purplish pink. Created this during spring (yup that's nearly 3 months ago) because I think it's just appropriate.

Polish Used: Essie Rock the Boat and Essence Purple Sugar topped with glittery end from Revlon Northern Lights duo.

Junk Food Nail Art

So I've been away for a bit too long than I would like. Simply because November hasn't been a really good month for me. Anyway, let's get down to business.

Today I have a junk food themed nail art. For this nail art, I have to use a lot of acrylic paints. I find acrylics are better to do some detailed work. They are easier to work with and if you nail polish sometimes they get patchy and gloopy. Growing up, my mom never allows me to eat too much fast food so I'm not really a huge fan of one. But what is your favourite fast food?

Polish Used:

  • O.P.I Alpine Snow as base

Sketch: Aaron Paul

Just broke 2 of my nails, like really bad so while we wait for my digits to grow back, let's talk about something else. Today I have a sketch that I'd like to share with you all! This drawing is a portrait of Aaron Paul. I have been binge watching Breaking Bad way too much lately as it is an amazing show.
Drawing is like one of my biggest passion in life. Although I haven't been drawing as much as I'd like. I'm still learning and I enjoy every step of it.

Butter London Nail Foundation

Butter London Nail Foundation Base Coat
Butter London Nail Foundation
I just finished a bottle of this so I'm sure I can give you my solid thoughts on this one. Butter London Nail Foundation is a base coat that has a sheer peach tint to it with a matte finish. This one costs a bit more than regular Butter London polishes, if you live in Australia,  this will cost you $26.95. However, a slight increase in price can be justified as you get a generous 17.5 ml of product. Picture shown is one coat of Nail Foundation over bare nails.

The texture of this is slightly thick. I do like this one when worn alone; it is a perfect my nails but better polish and it is not streaky at all, even on the first coat. As a base coat, honestly I think it's not bad. I don't see a big difference in terms of longevity of my mani. In terms of preventing stains, it's not the best but it does a decent job at it. However, I read some people actually like this base coat. The only thing that annoys me out of this is its drying time. I expect my base coat to fully dry by the time I finish painting all of my nails. Will I repurchase this? No as I've tried better. However I do recommend this one for people who wants a natural nail look.

Have you tried this? Do you like this base coat?

I should have...

Essie Mint Candy Apple
I should have bought Essie Mint Candy Apple years ago! I first spotted this baby about three years ago but decided to pass because I have so many similar colour in my collection. I know this one is a cult item, everyone loves them and I can see this colour suit a myriad of different skin tones. Finally decided to splurge a bit on it few days ago, since Priceline is having $4 off all Essie nail polish.
