Whenever you purchase they send a travel contact case, last time I got one shaped like a puppy and this time I got this one:

Circle Lens Tutorial and Review from E-CircleLens

So if you’ve been following my Twitter you’ll be aware that I’ve been testing out Circle Lenses!

So what are circle lenses? Basically they are coloured contact lenses which make your eyes appear bigger, they are very very popular in Asia especially with Hime Gyaru models. I’ve been interested in trying them for like 2 years but never got around to it until now when E-CircleLensoffered to send me some πŸ˜€

You can’t imagine how excited I was when I came home from Melbourne to a package from E-CircleLens!

Inside the package were 3 different lenses, some pamphlets and instructions, 3 cases and a cute little doggie travel kit!

Video Lilac Lace Nail Art, Nail Polish storage and Eyeko Polish Review

Ok this post is pretty huge if I do say so myself, it even has two tutorials including a lilac lace nail art… that’s right two!

I’ve been getting a lot of nail polish related requests lately so here is a gigantic post to take care of some of them!

Firstly a lot of people have been asking how many nail polishes I have… the answer is 87. That sounds like a lot… and well it is a lot but I’ve collected those over the last 4 years aaaaand a lot of them were gifts and the ones I bought were all like $2 so it’s not actually the gigantic money pit it sounds like!

Question 2: how do I store them? Well if I’m going to be making a lot of nail art to sell at once then I set them all up on a table organized by colour. Other than that they all live in a draw organized by whatever I shoved in there first.

The application was quite good it was a nice consistency and very shiny after application. It was opaque/the colour in the bottle after 2 coats. This next photo is a really good representation of the colour, it’s nice and soft and reminds me a lot of OPI “Do you lilac it?”. I didn’t find the smell of the polish over powering either which was nice.

The packaging is super cute too which is a plus!

The bottle is quite small at 8.5ml for Β£3 but for a boutique company that seems to be fairly standard. So the verdict = good! Everything they have is themed on a very cute manga which they update on the site every week, here’s some of the cute info they sent through:

Now back to the tutorial! After the first coat is dry write the name and colour of the polish on the other end of the stick!

Just like this πŸ˜€

Now time for the second coat, this time you should only paint the top 2/3rds of the nail.

Then leave that to dry. Once it’s dry you should paint one final coat on the top 1/3rd of the nail.

So you should have something like this, the numbers represent the number of coats. This doesn’t mean much for a polish as opaque as this one but when you have a more sheer polish it’s much more useful to know how many coats you’ll need for the finish you want. Now you can see at a glance without having to trial and error it every time.

This is an example of some polishes where the differences are a little more obvious, especially the orange.

So there you have it! Now it’s time for a nail art tutorial πŸ˜€ Today we’re going to make a pretty but easy lace finish on a base of the Eyeko Lilac Polish. Video is below!

Hello it’s hair tutorial time!

Remember how I’ve been promising some big projects lately? Weeeeeell this is one of them! A never-before-been-attempted-triple-hair-tutorial! (Yeah, yeah I know someone else probably did it first but it took a long time to edit this so let me have my moment in the sun damn it!)

Candice, Cheesie and I were up late one night throwing around some fun ideas and this is what popped out ^_^ I’ve been wearing my hair like this lately on days when the heat is just unbearable!

Leopard Print Nail Art Tutorial

I know I know I know I’ve been promising this leopard print nail art tutorial forever! I finally finished it πŸ˜€

Apologies for the crappy film quality, originally I wasn’t planning on making this into a tutorial so I wasn’t very careful when I filmed it. I have new software which I’m now learning to use so this is the last of my badly edited/made videos ^_^ So the quality is not great this time but hopefully you can at least get a good idea of the techniques and try it out yourself.

Make sure you let me know if you give it a try, I’d love to start a “Readers Photos” section! Anyway I hope this has helped a bit!

Today James took the photos of the first batch of cool nail art that I’m going to sell so expect a post about it very soon πŸ˜€ I’m so excited about this!

I’ve been a bit sick today so I’m off to bed. Night night and hope you enjoyed the leopard print nail art tutorial πŸ™‚
