NOTD: China Glaze Spontaneous

A purple to end the month of February! For this mani, I used China Glaze Spontaneous. Isn't this color lovely? A perfect color for spring! I tried to capture the actual color of this polish, but my flash was a bit harsh. Can you believe I used 5 coats for this polish! Haha, one or two coats would have been fine. I was on the computer as I was doing my nails & I didn't have my top coat with me, so I kept getting little mistakes x.x




The upcoming posts will be fill with my (huge) collective nail polish haul & random food from February! Loads of pictures I need to post process!

Happy Valentine Day + NOTD

Happy Valentines Day! I hope everyone is enjoying this day with their special someone or just good company, whether in person or in spirit =] Anyways, the color pink is not my cup of tea, so the only times I would consider painting a complete pink mani is during January & February. Ha, it'll be impossible to attempt to use all the pink polishes I have. Oh, & the reds too! For this mani, I used three coats of China Glaze Second Hand Silk & placed heart stickers on top. I could have got away with two coats of SHS, but I always favor three & the heart stickers came with a bottle of Seche Vite I purchased last year.

& Does this picture look weird? I made picture upside down, lol.

The SO & I did a Pre-Valentine scavenger hunt yesterday. The first prize was a dinner for two, roses, and two free pictures! Second prize was a Hello Kitty pinata filled with candy and Hello Kitty goodies. We weren't even close to winning, lol, but we had fun running around Japantown for two hours. We also got free strawberry covered chocolate flavored mochi at one of the station.  & Dolci Bar also sold cupcakes there & I had one! Anyways, the whole point of the scavenger hunt was my attempt to get free Pika Pika pictures. Hehe, I love purikura (photo booths)! & Especially when they're 50% off :) Today was just like any other day, nail polishes + food w/ the SO ^___^ He helped me make spicy tofu soup :)
