Valentine's day look : Dinner date look (Neutral colours)

Hi my lovelies,

Here is another Valentine's day inspired look. This look is suitable for those who are not comfortable with loud colours and want to look sweet & classy. Great for 1st dates and such.

Remember, if a guys is attracted just for the looks, he is not the one. Instead let him see the real you. So show him your personality, the real beauty that shines from within. Keep the makeup on the neutral side and show the real beautiful you.

It worked for me and I am very happy with my 'Mr Right'!

Products used for this look are:

Mac - Painterly paintpot
Revlon - Brown eyeliner
La femme - Brown e/s
Sleek - Shimmery pale pink e/s (Good girl palette)

My recent nail obsession!

It's been a while, I know! I am just chilling and getting my groove back on after a nice vacation in Singapore.

However, during this time, I have realized that I am getting quite obsessed with nails. Which includes nail polishes, UV Gel nails and nail art. Been playing around with colours and my new toy ' Konad nail stamping tool'. 

Painting nails is so much fun. Soon it will be that time of the year where sandals or open toe shoes are fashionable! Nicely manicured/pedicured nails are a must. Nobody wants to see yucky feet! Promise!

Since everything is highly priced where I am living right now, DIY is the best way to go for me. I used to work as a manicurist when I was 17+ years old before I joined the Army. Thus for me it's like rekindling old memories!

Now, enough of my ramblings! Here are some pictures of my nail 'playtime'.

I am so looking forward to spring. I can't wait to start sewing. Autumn and Winter was like hibernating time for me. I guess it is like that for many! LOL!

Take care my lovelies! See you soon!
