Just to kick off the regular blogging again, here's a short nail entry! I change my nail colour very often - not so much of toenails though. Here are some I managed to snap pictures of over the past month!
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Hot Red
Urban Decay in Barlust - Don't you love the names UD comes up with? I do!
Urban Decay in Wrecked
These two UD polished are the miniature bottles from the Holiday Nail Kit 2011. They were a present from my girlfriends:)

The extremely shiny texture is thanks to Seche Vite topcoat. Nothing unheard of about how wonderful this topcoat is! I must say, though, that Seche Vite gets bloppy in the jar after sometime and it's not as easy to use and long-lasting compared to when it's first used. My nails tend to come off in big pieces rather than slight chipping.
Tony Moly nail polish (White)
A lot of my friends asked me how I did this without using a french tip sticker. Simple!
1) Use a toe clipper to get square nails
2) Use a pigmented white polish. It's not going to work with a watery one because you'd have to keep building up on the colour (and it tends to get messier if you have to keep applying repeated strokes)
3) Place the brush on the tip of your fingernail. Instead of swiping the brush, maneuver your finger from one side to the other, while keeping the brush at the same place throughout. Simply said, instead of moving the brush, move your finger! It may sound ridiculous, but it helps you get straighter lines :)
I applied three light coats in the picture above.
And the instagram-ed version of Barlust and Wrecked! Everything looks nicer instagramed, huh!
