revlon*s "facets of fuchsia"

the target by my house didn't have "facet of fuchsia" so I called another one and they had it! from swatches I've seen I'm already in love with this color! also found another print of the HK bag that I have not seen yet til now.


"facet of fuchsia" Is a vampy dark-based polish with fuchsia glitters mixed into it. perfect for the holidays when you want to vamp it up a bit :)

shopping pays for itself

I visit drugstores like rite aid, Walgreens, and Cvs weekly for all my personal needs and snacks! it pays to have their rewards card cause after $50 I'll get a $5 coupon. got cotton balls and a large bag of chips for only $1.13 after the coupon. it pays to shop! the cute, Filipino cashier lady was even excited for me when she scanned the coupon attached to my previous receipt lol

now only if target and other large stores would start having rewards cards.


31 days nail challenge: day 3 (YELLOW NAILS)

opi "the it color" it's a golden yellow, not too bright, not to dark, reminds me the magic school bus color, i loved that show as a kid, always knew i'd be a scientist lol

i did two coats of "the it color" and doodled around with some glitter opi's "show it and glow it!" and "dating a royal" (navy blue) just for kicks and giggles to see how the three colors would look together. they compliment each other pretty well.

if you're in need of a wearable yellow polish with good formulation this would be "IT" LOL

sorry for lack of excitement today, i am extremely tired from a long day of school and instead of taking a nap right now my OCD won't allow me to since Wednesday is laundry day.

enjoy the pics below.





at this rate...I...NEED...MORE...COTTON...BALLS

XOXO,

31 days nail challenge: day 2 (ORANGE NAILS)


murdered my last midterm of the quarter today and taking a break tonight before finals next week.  consists of some masking, nail loving and watching some TV! i fixed my antenna all by myself just in time to catch the Victoria's Secret fashion show!
 
day 2: ORANGE NAILS!
today i used essie's "braziliant" from the summer 2011 collection. two coats and it's an amazing orange color with a slight pinky, coral sheen shot through it depending on how the light hits. then i paired it with milani jewel FX in "GOLD" on the ring finger. LOVEEEE this glitter polish, my favorite of all time. it's easy to pack on and covers the whole nail (which i like) and it shines like real gold :)

XOXO,
Giang

peppered ketchup

I love ketchup mixed with black pepper for dipping everything! my mom's done this for me since I was little so it just became acquired lol chick-fil-A spicy chicken deluxe sandwich, nuggets and fries for lunch before Bubs leaves. he knows i love pickles so he put all his pickles on top of my nuggets lol

parting is sweet sorrow, but I will see him after finals for a whole month of winter break! motivation for me to push through and do well!

CHALLENGE

L'OREAL INFALLIBLE NAIL POLISH in "TARGET RED"
this color is a bloody red, good formulation, i used two coats and it was easy to work with and added a thick coat of seche vite on top. i painted really quickly today and didn't have time to take care with painting by the cuticles so they're sort of uneven. in the end, they look almost like gel nails because they're so shiny! lets see how well the formulation holds up, but so far i'm impressed.

i loveeee el pollo loco's flan!!!

SO EXCITED! can't wait to crack my knuckles (i don't really crack my knuckles) and crank out some nail posts!

XOXO,
Giang

we went to sprinkles across the street for some cupcakes. red velvet and coconut, sooooo good! always hits the spot, i'm going to go back this week for the salted caramel one! bubs pulled out the trash cans for me and took over my robe and vandalized my hello kitty drawing on the message board. and now he's sobbing after each bite of cupcake he takes LOL i love him. my favorite person to hang out with everyday.
 
the roses are finally blooming out in the front yard and it's a gorgeous day like always in sundeezy :)
