Woman of Leisure....

I'm a woman of leisure for all but 2 weeks. And I made good use of my time by spending close to 2 hours on my manicure below... Haha... I have to admit that I am terrible at polishes and not to mention colours akin to a light baby pink that shows off ALL mistakes.

Nail with Etude House PK 011 (Natural light)

And I realized after having it on that it looks very similar to OPI's Mod About You, which is a very popular shade with many. Since we are on the topic of Etude House and OPI polish, I have to say that I've been very impressed with the formula of Etude House's polish. They apply well and gives a very creamy finish within 3 coats (3 coats was required for Mod About You as well) at a fraction of OPI's price. I can't remember the exact price but it's hardly compared to the exorbitant amount of moo-lah we have to pay in Singapore for a bottle of OPI polish. Hence, if this shade of pink is your cup of tea, pop by Etude House to pick this baby up.

And what's a woman of leisure without spending some time out with friends shopping and having tea along Orchard work while everyone else is busy working.... :o) I have a wardrobe full of nice and chic clothes and yet when i go out, I pull out the simplest short denim skirt and a t-shirt to pair with my flats and off I go.... Really say alot about comfort Vs style for me!!
LOTD for simple chilling with girlfriend.

I only have till the end of the week before work starts for me again. Hope everyone is doing well and having a great time with the family.

Thanks for reading. XOXOXO

One too many??

I really should not be a lady of leisure - I bought a total of 10 bottles of nail polish all within a span of 2 days from both TFS and Skin Food. I'm recently inspired by all the nail tutorials which I've viewed on Youtube to be a little bit more adventurous on my nails so the sudden interest in bright colours. Will have to try out the tutorials that I have viewed and share the results.... :o)

The partial army of polishes I owned.
I seriously already have one too many.... But oh well, that's a perogative that entirely owned by the female species. :o)

Blushing Red.....

Most people would have known that I just came back from a trip in Hong Kong by now and not the mention the LOADS of purchases that board the plane with me!! I thought of putting everything out and taking a picture to share the love but the amount to sort through was just mind-boggling. I gave up after a few feeble attempts... But I did try to go through it. :o)
Rather than give up - I decided to put up the purchases and review them through bit by bit. To start off, let's do Blush!!
Maybelline Mousse Blush - Berry Delight
This was a really nice surprise. I walked into Watsons and looked at the price for this blush. An amazing ~6SGD!! I thought to myself I could definitely do with another Blush, especially one going at 6SGD.... And I must say I really like how the colour upon applicaiton. It gave a healthy flush of colour that looks like I had 8 hours of sleep the night before and is just raring to go and bull-doze through the day... I am still using this on a regular basis even after my trip. It's easy to apply - You can hardly do a bad job with this and the colour flatters.

Nars - Exhibit A Blush
I think the above blush needs no major introduction. This has been one of the most coveted colours by Nars in my opinions and when I saw the Nars counter in Hong Kong, I knew this has to be the colour that I wanted to have!! Pretty expensive for a blush especially considering how little product you get, but it's Nars!! Super pigmented and gave such a radiant flush to your face; No wonder girls go gaga over this cause I definitely am so-in-love with this blush!!
Ok, 2 products down and lots more to go.... Let me go back to sorting and posting now... Hehe....
