The purest form of holo comes in powder.

I had been avoiding this trend for the simple fact that I don’t like glitter herpes.

And I knew the moment I opened that jar, all the powder would fly off into my face.

But, I decided to give it a try and actually buy one small jar.

I waited a long time because it came all the way from China and didn’t have prime,

and by the time it got to me, so many options had popped up on Amazon WITH prime.

Back to the story. I opened that thing and lucky for me, it wasn’t as bad. I proceeded to apply it to a gel based nail polish (I used Sally Hansen)

and all of a sudden I saw the light, and everything was holy.

So worth it.

Natural french tips

Very rarely am I excited to brag about having done french tips on my nails, but I’m happy on several things in this photo.

  1. The tips are all the same size
  2. The nails therefore have the same growth
  3. They’re all natural
  4. There is no overflow of white polish on the tips
  5. the nail bed looks “mostly” uniform
  6. The tips were done free-hand with my left hand. (This is my right hand)
  7. The nail shapes in general.

Reminds me of the Backstreet Boys…

Back when I was a teen… oh man, didn’t think I’d start it this way!… ahem /*cough*/.

Back when I was a teen, there was a huge boy band called “The Backstreet Boys”.

And they were all over the place. They were extremely popular and there was sort of a fan rivalry between them and “N’SYNC”. (Yeah, I remembered the apostrophe haha)

Well, these Backstreet Boys, had an album called “Black and Blue” from which came the popular songs “The Call” and “Shape of my Heart” (aaww, nostalgia!). This was the cover:

And today, trying out these black studs over my nails reminded me so much of that album, and that boy band that used to be so successful back in the 90’s – 2000s. So… I guess, I give you:
