So after watching BeautyQQ's metallic nail video, I got obsessed with cool tone metallic nails. If you don't know who BeautyQQ is, she is a cantonese / mandarin youtube beauty & fashion guru. She's so pretty and all her videos are so inspiring! Anyway, back to nails, I remember I have a few silver polishes because I used to like to add silver to the tips of my fingers. I decided to give it a try and I am loving it! It's subtle yet different. And it's so festive, perfect for the holidays :D I think it'll look great if you're wearing dusty pink or red! I decided to use this nail polish brand called Golden Rose.
I bought the above 4 polishes in Hong Kong. I seriously forgot which store I got them from... I want to say SaSa, but I might be wrong. They were extremely inexpensive! If I remember correctly, they were less than $1.5 each (?) Each of them only has 5.5 ml though so they're quite small, but I seriously don't mind because my polishes usually go bad before I can finish them anyway. Upon some brief researching, Golden Rose is actually a South Africa company. These colours I have are under the "Fashion Colour" series. They don't have a name for each of them, but there's a code. From left to right: 39, 58, 19, 56. I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality of these. Although I still applied 3 coats to achieve my silver nail look, it goes on smoothly and it dries relatively quick!
I love my Tom Ford Black Orchid body moisturizer. I bought it at the MAC sale in September for $20. Now that I think about it, it's rather expensive. I have no idea why I would spend that much on a body moisturizer. But at that time, I was attracted by its packaging. It's nothing fancy, but I love how the gold looks with the black background. I almost bought the white version too. Luckily, I came to my senses right before I headed to the cashier. There's no way I'm spending $40 on moisturizer!! Despite the price, I'm not regretting this purchase. I absolutely adore the scent. It has a strong feminine floral scent. I usually just put a little bit on my wrists before I sleep.
I'm also liking my Shu Uemura pressed eye shadow in p black 990. It's one of those purchases that I made when I was on vacation. Why I would spend $25 on an e/s is still a myth to me. Let alone why I own a total of 4 Shu Uemura e/s =_= fml Anyway, I love how pretty it looks in the pan. It's actually the only black e/s that I own and it's extremely pigmented. It goes on smoothly. Lately, I've been packing this on top of my Shiseido cream eyeliner to avoid it from smudging. And it seems like it's doing the job :)
