NOTM 10/2011

Wow I haven't done many nail posts... that's shocking

But since I got some new polishes I thought I'd throw in the two most recent manicures I did!

I think I'll start chronologically!

Mani inspired by Hwannie, or ...I think it's amiinails(?) now... she changed channels, but I saw this on her facebook fanpage!
Polishes I got today!
Pelican Gray-Gotten by recommendation by a friend! Current mani! Despite not being a typical nude, pink, coral, red, I still think it looks quite feminine, especially paired with the glitter top coat! LOVE the combinaton :D
Lemon Fizz- Not exactly "Autumn" but I was twitching cause I didn't have a yellow to complete a pastel rainbow
IX- Chocolate brown for the chocolate drippy sweets nails and also cheetah print :D
These two, I got together in a set (Serena Williams Glam Slam Wimbeldon)
Your Royal Shin-ness: Glittery silver color. I'd imagine this is what liquid silver would look like! But don't quote me on it..
Servin' Up Sparkle: Combination of small and hexagonal glitters. So so so so pretty
May I say these two are GORGEOUS. Especially the top coat. And the base. Both are amazing! And OPI has cool names for their polishes, just saying
The glitter top coat over Pelican pretty *_* and the colorful sparkles make it fun to look at!

Total of all of these polishes? $16 USD! I think it's pretty cheap for OPI and CG!

Sorry for the lack of updates! It's finals week starting on Tuesday so I have to study!
Good news is that I've been doing better in APEC :D

G&G Max Pure Brown Review!

I finally got the chance to post a review! After I put up the recieved post, I was swamped with homework and other various things...I apologize.

Better late than never I guess?

Disclaimer: I was not sponsored by PinkyParadise for this post and everything was bought with my own money.
Picture from the last post
The one on the left is right side up and the right is flipped inside out. The one complaint I have about this lens is that the inner side and outer side look too similar so I can't tell if it's right or not!
Derpy one in on out shot. I look so sleepy D: But you can tell it makes a difference in size!
Both in and I definitely look more awake! Nice enlargement as well

So ...15 mm lenses just look too big for me, it's too alienish. Chanel suggested 14.5 since her King Size Brown in 14.5 worked out well for her. I chose this one because I wanted a natural lens I could wear to school!

It's big, just big enough for me without going buggy eyed! I really like it in comparison to my Geo Mimi Cafe lens. It's quite natural in terms of enlargement.

Comfort: 5/5
SO SO SO COMFORTABLE. I actually had to knock 1.5 points off of the Macchiatto lens after a few uses because in comparison to this, it makes my eyes so tired. These I can wear for a full day at school (8hrs).

Color and Design: 5/5
It's not really a pattern that will make your eyes pop, but I love it because it's natural and wearable for everyday! I love that it doesn't have that harsh black limbal ring too. The color of the lens is nice too, and makes my eyes look lighter in some lights

My new favourite! I adore these lenses :D

Recieved New Lenses: Max Pure Brown!

So excited cause after 2 weeks, I finally got my lenses!
But there was a weird holdup from USPS. So here's the story (skip to the first picture if you don't wanna read this xD)
So on Saturday, I had to go to my little cousin's birthday and the mailman couldn't deliver it, but I went to the post office that same day to try and pick it up. Of course I couldn't, because the carrier wasn't back yet, and I didn't notice that it said it'd be available for pickup on Monday. That was my fault.

So Monday comes, and when I arrive at the post office, the place is basically overflowing with people! Luckily, since I was just picking up, I could just go to the window and pick up. So I give her the little slip, and the lady goes in the back to look for it. She comes back, and it's not there! I found that weird, and I disregarded it as maybe the carrier didn't leave it at the office on his round.

So today, I come back, and there's still a line, shorter but still a bit of a wait. Anyways, I make it to the front, and the lady asks for an ID. I didn't bring mine, since the lady yesterday just said come, and you can pick it up since I know you. It was a different lady this time, and she demanded that I have MY ID though my dad had his and we live at the same address. It'd be more logical to give it to a legal adult rather than a minor right? She just totally insisted that I had mine! She said that she would detain it til then! By some miracle, my dad had an old student ID of mine that he carried when we went to Vietnam, and she gave it to us, with much hesitation. -____________-;
But I did get them, so I shouldn't be too annoyed!

Everything right out of the package! The nicely bubble wrapped vials, black Dariya fringe holders, and a yellow hippo case! These are the G&G Max Pure Brown! I was suprised to find out it was G&G because I thought it was by EOS! Oh well...
Most of you guys have read my Mimi Macchiatto lens review, so this setup should be quite familiar! I tried to recreate it xD

I'll soak them tonight, and then wear them tomorrow, and hopefully by tomorrow night I can put a review up if homework isn't too big of a hinderance!
I picked up some bath salts at Marukai, and I finally splurged on the more expensive ones!
L-R: Kokubo Piggy, Bison Hot Ginger, and Moomin Valley Bath Powder in Strawberry Cream! I tried the Moomin one and it was great! Proper review coming soon :D

Finally, I'll end up with a vain selfshot of myself...that was redundant..
Anyways, I was going to change my FB picture to this, but my friend said to keep my old one, so I'll just post it here hahaha
