My Friendly Neighborhood Manicurist does Nail Art ;-D

I'm just actually reveling on several d.i.y.'s ...slowly traversing them, just getting by on some things, while exceedingly doing well on others (party planning! ;-D).  But one thing for sure, I'm no good at doing my own nails. Enter my manicurist. She does my nails at the comfort of my room. Love it. Yesterday, I wanted to use several of my nail polishes at once. So she needed to level up, and try nail art.

The color choices. ;-D
Flower Power...Base: Sally Hansen Diamond Precious Sunrise, Flower Petals: Sally Hansen Fuchsia Bling Bling , Leaves and  Corolla: NYX Girls Nail Polish
I love spas. But I never did see reason on spending Php 250 up for nail services in the Philippines. Because I have the luxury of having a dependable manicurist. She does my mani and pedicure for Php 100 ($ 2+), over endless chattering. :-D Not to mention, unlimited touch ups during the session (I'm that restless!), and as long as she's within the area.

The Sally Hansen Diamond Precious Sunrise is the only unused color from my recent Sally Hansen online hauls. I thought that the color is so close to the Sunrise Sunset. It's not.
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Sunrise Sunset 
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength is my preferred nail color line if I want to wear the colors, and to preserve their pristine vibrance, for longer than two days. My novelized ravings are found here, and here too. From all the nail lines that I tried so far, including OPI, it's the only line (at least vs. Lacquer Shine Nails) that can truly withstand my restlessness (even klutziness at times). Although, there are several more newer and fresher Sally Hansen Nail Color lines, which I have yet to try. 

My favorite finishing coat...SkinFood Nail Vita Crystal Pearl Top Coat.
She just used cuticle pusher to create those added flicks on the petals. With her usual precise application, it's really no question that she can do a lot more. Maybe with more samples and guides to rely on, she can really level with the professional nail technicians of the booming nail care industry in the country.;-)

About Me

My Photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
