NOTD Inspiration: Spring x Autumn

It's already autumn or fall (whatever you call it) in some countries in northern hemisphere but it's spring in the south. Since I live in a tropical country, we only get to enjoy two seasons: wet or dry, climate depends on the amount of rain according to Mr. Wikipedia. I love to imagine wearing autumn and winter clothing. The only good thing living in a tropical country I can think of, clothing-wise, is I get to save money for other things (ie. We can 'recycle' our clothes! You can wear your summer dress during the cold season, you just need to wear it with cardigan=D). 

I love incorporating everything with NOTD. So I hope you'll  like this season-mash up inspired nail art.


We need:
- lilac or light blue nail polish
- ox blood red, maroon, or any dark red nail polish
- glitter polish

Here's how:
  1. Start with clean nails and apply your base coat to protect your natural nails.
  2. Apply two coats of lilac nail polish except for the accent nail.
  3. Paint the accent nail with your dark red polish, let it dry and apply your glitter polish.
  4. Lastly apply top coat.
Tip: You can also try to do it vice versa (lilac + glitter on the accent nail and dark red on the rest).


How about you? Have you tried any crazy NOTD combo before? If not, you can add this to your list! 'Til next post...

NOTD: Accidental Nail Art

Hi!! I hope you still remember me. I 'might' post an entry why I've been MIA for the last couple of months. Writer's block? Laziness maybe? I don't know. I just lacked motivation. Anyway, let's throw all those excuses and let's focus on something I really love doing: NAIL ART!

I was thinking of geometric pattern like drawing a V and filling it with red polish but I wasn't able to place the tip in the center. So I decided to draw another diagonal line to form an X to make up for it.



You'll need:
- light pink nail  polish
- red nail polish
- your not-so-steady hand (just kidding!)

Here's how:

  1. Clean you nails as usual. If you have dry cuticles, lather them with cuticle oil or lotion (which I obviously forgot).
  2. Apply your favorite base coat.
  3. Paint your nails with your light pink nail polish. Let it dry.
  4. Paint an X with the other leg shorter than the other using your red nail polish. Make sure that the it's not in the center.
  5. Finish it with your top coat.


I hope you like this simple nail tutorial. 'Til next time!!!

Family Reunion 2013

We, Filipinos, are known for being family-oriented. The strong family ties run from one generation to another. We inherited this trait from our Chinese ancestors who came to the Philippines gazillion years ago during the Manila-Acapulco Galleon Trade, I think. Or maybe because we used to be a colony of Spain, then US and three years from the Japs during WWII so we decided to stand on our own and claim our independence for real. 

We always have our annual family reunion on Holy Saturday. It's our yearly tradition and it is something I always look forward celebrating. I love the food and watching my little cousins play parlor games. Here are some snaps I took from our recent reunion.
