Illamasqua Rampage

Good morning!!

I finally decided to cut my nails a bit, to make the break of my right index' nail less obvious. I couldn't resist putting on a dark color, as I'm one of those who believes that darker hues look better on shorter nails.

Rampage definitely lives up to the hype. I love it!! The formula was a bit thinner and easier to apply than Muse, but the coverage was the same: only 2 coats to achieve bottle color. I really like how you can tell that it is green, despite how dark the color is. It's truly gorgeous; easily my favorite green (from my stash)!

Have a great day!

Illamasqua Muse

Illamasqua Muse = gorgeousness!!

Highly pigmented and smooth formula; glossy finish; only needed 2 coats. I love polishes like these.
And I love them even more when the color is as beautiful as Muse: a deep blue with a hint of green that makes it teal-ish. This one is gorgeous!!

Here's the thing about Illamasqua- we don't have it here in Canada, so when my cousins and I planned on going to NYC, I had to stop buy Sephora. I'm glad we were kind of in a hurry that evening, because I probably would've ended up buying more than just the 2 polishes that I got. Despite the price ($14), the lovely colors interested me very much, and had I stayed a bit longer, I would probably have bought more...
On my wishlist: Baptiste, Jan, Nudge, Wayward and Hectic.

In other news, I ordered a new camera (Canon G11)!! I can take pretty pictures of my nails now!
Have a great weekend!

Back from crazy NYC!

Hey guys,

I'm back from NYC! It was absolutely crazy! SO HOT!! We were sweating bullets!
I was able to make a quick stop in the Sephora in Times Square to buy 2 polishes that I've been wanting for a long while now: Illasmasqua's Rampage and Muse! I was stoked to get my hands on them, since we can't find them here in Canada! I would've bought more, but I limited myself to only those 2 ;)

Swatches coming soon!

Hey guys!!

The wedding was AMAZING! Everything went smoothly, the bride, groom, bridesmaids (and junior bridesmaids) and groomsmen all looked so good! I am so happy for my cousin!! :) I couldn't contain my joy... as soon as she walked down the aisle, I started to cry.

Anywho, everybody had such a great time! My cousin looked stunning!

All the bridesmaids wore  lavender dresses, so we chose very neutral colors. I totally forgot to take pictures that day, but I swatched the colors quickly last weekend. (I broke a nail at work, so please excuse my ugly-looking index nail).

I chose to wear OPI Have a Tempura Tantrum on my tips
This was 3 coats.

The maid of honor and my sister both chose OPI Miso Happy with this Color
Also 3 coats here.

And now for the bride!!!! We went to Wal-Mart together one day, and I was trying to explain to her to color I thought would be perfect when I saw this one. It was perfect! She loved it!!!

Rimmel French Rose
3 coats
Application was very good. I liked the milky consistency of the polish. The look is very clean,simple and fresh.

I'm glad the wedding is over now! No more stressing!
A few cousins and I are planning to go to NYC/Brooklyn for the weekend! It's gonna be fun!

Hi Readers!

Mini update today! The wedding is in TWO DAYS!!!! :D We've been so busy since the bridal shower: we organized a surprise bachelorette party for my cousin! It was insane! It was the first time I've seen my cousin drunk..... HA!!

Anyways, all week long it has been re-painting and cleaning the house, shoe-shopping for Saturday, working and sleeping. Oh yeah, and family reunions.. why is it necessary to meet every time a visitor arrives?! I have no clue.

I can't wait to post pictures from the wedding and show you our nails!!!

We're all so happy and excited!

Talk to you guys soon!

(April, did you make the cupcakes yet?)
