[NOTD] Funky Zebra Stripes

I also have 5 Below store near my job & decided to stop by. I found some really cute colors from Funky Fingers nail polish (They are made by Forsythe cosmetic company. Same makers as Color Club) & Nail Art Club polishes by Color Club. The best thing about them is the price! I got 3 for $5. I'll post some swatches in a later post!

In this mani, I used Funky Fingers Southampton Seafoam as the base (OPI Absolutely Alice on the ring finger) & used Art Club polishes for the details. I topped the whole look with glitter polish, Color Club Si Vous Please. I loved how this mani turned out, especially when the light reflects the glitter on Absolutely Alice & Si Vous Please.

I just noticed a lot of Color Club love in this post. haha Now I'm tempted to buy that Color Club Debutante Collection I saw at ROSS. hmmm

[NOTD/OOTD] I have an obsession for Mint & Floral...

I finally got my hands on Essie Mint Candy Apple! I've been obsessing over Mint-colored nail polish. I guess any collection isn't complete without it! I also got Revlon Minted at ULTA & I was so excited to find it because I couldn't find it at Rite Aid and Walgreens. I'm probably going to do a comparison post just for Mint-polishes that I own in the future.

Anyways, I wanted Mint Candy Apple and my new nail art brush set right away and did another floral design! Excuse the gross cuticles. I haven't been taking great care of my cuticles & hands lately because of work xD

Sunday was my Uncle's birthday party. My whole family was there. So much good food, great conversations, and the Celtics vs Lakers game. GO CELTICS!! hahah It's fun watching sports events with my family since we're all so into it! It was a suuuper hot day, so I wore a nice, light floral shirt, white high waist skirt, and my favorite sandals~

I also stayed over my sister's house for the weekend and we decided to bake some cookies for my Uncle's Party. Another thing I love doing, besides my nails, is Baking! I don't cook often, but Baking is my forte. I love experimenting with pastries and desserts ^^ Maybe I should post some recipes on this blog? Anyone interested? :D

Chocolate Cookies with White Chocolate Chips & Walnuts
OMG these were heavenly!

These were supposed to be pinwheel cookies, but the dough wasn't cooperating! Sooo...we improvised! We mixed the chocolate dough and regular dough together and used cookie cutters to make different shapes. My cousins had a good laugh at the doggie biscuit shaped cookie and questioned if it was really dog food. hahaha These cookies were delicious!

[NOTD] It's been a while!

It's been a while since my last post, but I have a good reason! I got a job! Woohoo! I'm working at ROSS for the summer until school starts again. What do I love about this job? It's right across from ULTA xD ahaha. Let's just say I can't wait for school to come...

Unfortunately, I had to cut my nails since one of them broke during work & my nail polish doesn't last very long :( My fingers look rough after my first day working in the stockroom sorting and cutting boxes. bleh.

Anyways, as I said, ULTA is right across from where I work, so I've been stopping by and buying more nail polish! I can't resist! haha

There was a buy 2 get 2 free deal for ULTA products, so I bought four ULTA nail polishes for $10 total. This is one of them~ULTA Alter Ego Application was easy~2 coats, not streaky. I love the blue shimmer with metallic finish!

I also got Essence Check Me Out & ULTA After Party. I used ELF Desert Haze as a base for After Party. After Party consists of Red & Silver glitter. It looks great with nude/brown colors like Desert Haze.

I also got my first ever Piggy Polish color~Blue Me A Kiss! It's a really nice light blue color. I paired it with ULTA Celebutante. I also got my nail stickers from dealsxtreme! The stickers are really cute! I love the rose set.

I finally received my 15 piece Nail Art Brush set from Ebay! It was such a steal. Got them for $2.79! I just have to find the time to use them! haha

Check it out!
