Coral Nail with Acrylic Nail Art

I've loved coral and blue/turquoise combination for ages. I think it all started back when I worked in a Melbourne jewelery store, during my college years. The color combination reminds me of an exotic beach in Greek isle

So I chose a coral nail for my manicure, but opted for a white acrylic nail art to instead of a blue/turquoise accent, just to make the coral pops up and my finger nails look brighter. I added a bit of glitter to help cover my nail tips, just to make sure the manicure lasts for more than 2 days. I also find that applying glitter at you nail tips help to masks any nail polish chip that you might get from doing housework... or from typing (bashing) the keyboard 10-12 hours a day.

I quite like the end result. Next manicure I will definitely go for coral & turquoise combo.

Back to Blogging

After almost a 2 year hiatus, I decided to start blogging again. I've been so busy and sleep deprived over the past year or so that I've spent almost all of my free time catching up on sleep. What have I been doing in the past 2 years? Well, I can probably make a list...

  • I've turned 30... Well, I heard 30 is the new 20... I feel order physically, but I feel more carefree about life.
  • I went back to university and actually finished my my courses. I still have to start my thesis though.
  • Stopped collecting make up until I can at least make a dent on at least a dozen of my blushes.
  • We had our first attempt at IVF. The result was negative, but we'll definitely try again.
  • We built our first house! This is our largest project ever. We've now moved in to our new house for about 2 months. We've been putting up little decor here and there during weekend, which I will share with you more in the next couple of weeks.
  • I've grown a fondness for batik fabric, Indonesia's traditional material
  • HY changed job... twice!
  • I'm starting a business venture with my sister on something we both love. FASHION!
Now that our house is completed, I have a little bit of free time to start blogging again. However, since I've made a promise to only purchase make up that I need and not what I want, I will share about things which interest me from fashion, beauty, food, recipes, decor, and anything else that caught my attention. Hope it'll be interesting enough to share with you.
