Nail Art Tutorial: Splash of Colors

Grey would be the color of my life right now. But my nails shouldn't be. I need color, and more colors. So for my comeback nail art, I splashed (well, painted actually) colors on my nails and chose a bright color for base. I also changed the shape of my nails to round. I just needed something different. I actually liked it. I was able to grow my nails longer than I normally can with a squoval shape. Let's see how long I can maintain it.

A Letter of Excuse

Dear friends,

I know that I have been gone for quite awhile. Well, life happened.

You see, I've always knew what I wanted to become even as a child. I wanted to be an artist. I have devoted a good time during school days to drawing, painting, crafting, designing, and almost anything art-y. I would rather do art projects than study. Modesty aside, I really think I was good at it. But most importantly, it was the one thing that truly made me happy. I simply love art.

Sadly, I never actually pursued it. I was made to believe that it was not the path that I was meant to take. But life has taught me a valuable lesson and B.M. Corona said it so beautifully:

A Sammy Dress

Living in a fast-paced world sometimes makes it hard to even have time to go shopping. To many things to do too little time. Sounds familiar? And so sometimes, we appreciate a good online shopping service because they provide a convenient window to indulge ourselves. Sammy Dress is one of them and I'd like to share with you my experience.

First of all, allow me to say that I am clueless when it comes to modeling so you have to forgive my awkwardness in the photos. So, I got this long sleeves dress from Sammy Dress. I wore it a couple of times and washed it at least twice before a casual photo shoot and before writing this review.

Let's take a look first at the dress:

Nail Art: It's My Birthday

I am officially a year older. I turned 38 last May 25. I have been meaning to spend a birthday on an outdoor adventure. And after 3 years of trying, I finally did it this year. I initially wanted to spend it in Bohol. But the turn of events led me to celebrate my 38th in Palawan, Philippines.

I also planned to share my birthday nail art before I left for my trip. Unfortunately, I misread my flight schedule and had to rush to the airport so early in the morning to catch the plane. Instead, I brought with me my nail art kit and hoped that I will have time to do my nails while on vacation. Well, I was able to just in time for my special day.

I Took This Bag From Tmart Out For a Walk

The first thing you should know is that I love bags. The second thing is that I love big bags. But my bags aren't "girly" at all. I am fond of the ones that I can easily stuff with my personal things and still have space for other items I need to carry on a particularly busy day.

You can say that I am more of a laid back type of girl. I most often than not prefer functionality over style when it comes to bags, or clothes as well. I got a new bag and decided to use it for a few days to see how it will hold up with a cramped schedule. Well, let me tell you now that this leisure bag is everything I expected it to be.

Nail Art: Disaligned

Forgive my inclination towards abstract designs. I find them very versatile and classy. Inspiration comes easier when it is the idea. And so, lo and behold, here's another abstract nail art design.

I didn't have any particular pattern in mind. I decided to be spontaneous and see what my nail art brush will create. The overall look was satisfying, to me at least. I called this Disaligned because that's the first word that came to mind when I looked at the results. Beats me now why I named this such. Oh well, unto the design!
