Weekend Haul: nail stuff galore~

I have been quite into nail stuff lately considering that my acne is flaring up & i can't get to use make-up whenever i want to, the way for the 'kikayness' in me to show up is through my nails. Add the fact that i joined the fun FB Group Fab ur Nails, it made my nail addiction soar to the highest level..hehe

I guess you've heard of the Del Sol Color Changing Polish?
Well, i have already placed an order for it... OMG! I can't wait!
I even dreamt that i already had it on my nails!
talking about nail addiction..

Anyway, i have been sick the past couple of days. I caught the flu bug that ended up in sore throat therefore losing my voice in the end which forced me to cancel my classes. The weather here in the Philippines is terrible! It's sunny but it's's cold but will eventually get hot in the afternoon then becomes cold again. It's no wonder a lot of people are sick!

Going back... when i did my Christmas shopping, i also grabbed a couple of stuff for me... though mostly the stuff that i bought are for my godchildren, relatives & friends...

I can't find my big tub of Epilin Wax so i bought the small one just in case... Himalaya Herbals shampoo & conditioner for me to try.. im just curious about it. I decided to buy the Nichido eyebrow pencil since i find it time-consuming using eyebrow kits every now & then to fix my brows & a couple of other stuff...

Yesterday, i also went shopping together with my brother when i saw a small nail art store & the first thing that i saw were their water decals! Yay! How fun~! I've already used the one in the middle & that's what i'm wearing now.

As we browse one store from another, i saw these gorgeous knee high socks & i bought them...not sure where & when i can use these though...but hey! they're cute,right? hehe

Since i am an insomniac & i can't buy any more novels because i don't have a place where i can put them anymore. I have run out of space to store them so i just decided to take up cross stitching again.

The Aida cloth is half a yard so it's pretty big but then i just opted for a count 10 cloth so that i won't have trouble counting & stitching... This is the pattern i'm gonna be working on.

It's quite hard to actually do cross stitching with long nails, but then since i'm mostly doing this to occupy my time while waiting for sleep to take over then i guess it's ok. I can live with it, im not as clumsy as i was before so i can manage stitching now. hehehe.

I was actually able to start it already. I'm done with her hands & that sparkly thing she is holding right there.Hopefully i'll be able to finish this.. i'll show you all once i finish this. the question is...when...hehe

Then as soon as we went home, i tried out the water decals because im sooooooooooo excited!

I think it's not too shabby for a first timer,ne?
The edges are not as neat as i want them to be but i'm not the one to complain since this is the 1 of the easiest way to glam up your nails! Tutorial for water decal will be up soon!

I bought nail art brushes & rhinestones too but it still hasn't arrived yet.. most probably tomorrow. I'll just do another post once i already have it.

Then finally, Sis Thriszha of Fab Ur Nails sent me an early Christmas gift because we were talking in the group i said that my ultimate 'nail' dream is to be able to own a holographic nail polish. I asked hr if she is willing to let 1 of hers go & i would gladly pay for my life for it

Imagine my shock when she said that it's her gift for me.
I was sooooooooooooooooo happy i could float away to la-la-land all by myself!

So when the package arrived last thursday & i saw her generosity, it really put a smile on my face even if i am very tired!

She even included nail stamp & a water decal. My very firsts! I will not use this water decal for i will include it in my scrapbook. Sorry, Sis Thriszha, it's too important for me to use..hehe! That's why i just bought the water decal that i tried because i don't want to make a mistake & ruin my first special water decal!

Everything is really amazing!
I'm not yet used to stamping but i find that it's a nice way to have a professional looking nail in a shorter time compare to doing free hand designing. But fret not, ladies, i'll still be doing free hand nail designs. It's a way for me to de-stress.

The Color Club Fashion Addict is soooooooooooo pretty i don't even want to use it. I just want to stare at it!


I'm absolutely thrilled with everything!
Thank you, moja!

The hamster is about to come your way... just make sure you continue checking your door every now & then. He might be already half way home..hehe.

I'll have my last Christmas nail design up this week. I'm just waiting for my brushes to arrive. I'm actually still not done with my Christmas shopping...

Why is it that even if you make a list of everything & have bought all of the things on your list there is still something that you forgot to buy?! Isn't that annoying? Anyway, it's Christmas...
*shrugs shoulder*

I'll be busy again starting tomorrow...
lots of things to do!

Hope you will all have a good start for this week,ladies!

i'll still be doing some product reviews but i'll refrain from using cosmetics as much as i can up until my skin has fully healed. I don't want to put a burden on my skin by piling cosmetics while my acne is still up. For the time being, i'll be doing some nail product posts.
