Hi guys! 
Today's post is a jumbo post..lool packed with more than one article! From a nail post to announcements! Do bear with the length! Check it out!

This nail art is a simple black nail color with a crack design on both hands. Black is my go-to-color for nails (and even clothing). I mean when I am confronted with sooooo much nail polish colors to choose from, black is usually my safe haven. Anyways I tweaked it up with a silver polish and added a black crack polish. These crack polishes are flooding the market and they are spot on trend. What you can create with them is endless. You should try it out if you haven’t! 

Someone asked in the comment box on the last nail post if those were my natural nails. Those who know me would be laughing their heads off right now, because my nails are short and ugly and horrible!!! I have been chewing my nails since I had fingers!! You might not believe it if I say at my age, my mum still slaps my hands off my mouth when i'm EATING my nails near her in public! You would think I would have stopped due to embarrassment, but nooooo #teamwedontcurrrrrrr  

What do ya think? Nailed it or Not??

Makeup News


I know I am late, but the much awaited and expected RiriWoo is finally out and SOLD OUT ( there are too many makeup crazies in the world). The lipstick is one of the products from the Rihanna and MAC collaboration. As the name implies, It is like a remix of the infamous RUBYWOO! Anyways it got sold out just after 3 hours!! But I reckon you might still be able purchase on eBay and all those other sites. I’m sure we won’t be getting here until ONLY GOD KNOWS WHEN, lool!

According to reviews, It is just the same as RubyWoo but not as drying! It would be nice to try it out, but I doubt I’d want to shell out money on RubyWoo’s sister! Yuck! I hate that lipstick!
You can read a review here at Labella Vita’s blog, she did an awesome review!
