nail art: dream & believe dreamcatcher nails


Picked up these cute bling blingz from forever21 recently, and also a nail art pen which I super love! I seriously need all the colours in this nail art pen because it is soooo useful! I took the longest time to decide what to paint my nails this week. I saw so many beautiful nail designs that I wanted to try but somehow my colour palette just didn't seem as nice. So it was a demoralising process of painting and removing polish a few times. Finally settled on dreamcatcher nails that just popped in my head! These are rather simple because I only drew dreamcatchers on my thumb, ring finger and middle finger, so that's four less fingers to draw on. Also, my dreamcatcher design is rather easy to draw. 

  • Paint your base colour of mint/turquoise on your little, pointer and middle finger. I went with grey for my thumb and ring finger. You can try gold or pink as well. 
  • Draw your dreamcatcher design. I used my Sakura Glaze pens to help me with this. They are super good and easy to use. Plus, they do not smudge when dry. 
  • Next, I used my forever21 gold nail art pen to dot on some studs on the dreamcatcher and on my little and pointer finger. Don't you think they are quite a good replacement for studs? I don't have any studs to use for my nail art so I thought these replicated the look quite well.
  • Finally, draw on some feathers for your dreamcatcher! I used a ballpoint pen as a dotting tool for this. 


I think these would be perfect for coachella as well. Love them so much!

Real vs Fake Adidas Superstar/Stan Smith

I've wanted to do this post for a long time, ever since I started on my crazy collection of Adidas Superstars. I mean, I think I make quite a credible source because at one point, I owned 14 pairs of Superstars and Stan Smiths. I will be migrating my Superstar collection post over to this blog over the coming days so that you can read up on where I got them.



I'm not sure if these shoes are still as popular and wanted now because I am sort of out of the loop but if you are looking to get yourself a pair of Superstars or Stan Smiths, these are a few pointers to look out for in identifying if what you are buying is real or fake. Take note that these features are mostly applicable to recent releases only. Old models and Superstar 80s are slightly different. Then again, old models are not sold in stores anymore so if you find brand new pairs elsewhere, you should be cautious. 

I owned a a few pairs of fake Superstars before I purchased my first original pair from the Adidas website. …

diy: hair bows

From the cloth I bought recently at Daiso, and with the major diy mood I was in, I decided to make a bunch of hair bows to wear when school reopens. My tutorial has been inspired and sourced through many inspirations on pinterest.  Start off with a rectangular or square piece of fabric. Squares will result in bows like the blue floral one above while rectangles will be like this bow in the tutorial. Mine measured about 24cm by 12cm. For my blue floral one, i used a 15cm by 15 cm square. Fold your fabric in half, with the insides facing out and straight stitch as highlighted. Leave a gap at the edge because you will be inverting the fabric after you're done sewing. This gap should also be of reasonable size, not to small or you will have trouble inverting the cloth. Once you are done, invert the fabric and  straighten it out. You can sew up the gap at this point if it bothers you. Using a pin or a needle, make some pleats with the fabric and pin through to get the bow shape. Once yo…

ALL ColourPop Ultra Matte Lip Swatches on Asian Skin + Review

Recently, I dug into my collection of ColourPop Ultra Matte Liquid Lipsticks and swatched all the available shades on their website. I'm missing 5 from the website and over here, I have 31. The rest have been swatched in other collection videos/posts.

Midi (Pale Dusty Pink) Against my skin tone, this is like a pastel pink. The color remains quite close to that of the tube but the formula is slightly thick and it does settle in my lip lines and feel dry. Not exactly a color I would pull off often but I can see it working with a colorful eye look or a smokey eye.

Bianca (Soft Mauve) Love this shade and it remains quite true to the tube but it is so drying and crumbly on the lips. It accentuates my lip lines and it cracks when I smile. One of the worse formulas in this bunch, especially considering that it is a nude and most companies do not mess these sort of colors.

Clueless (Dusty Mauve) This is a really cute shade. It pulls off pinker on me than in the tube and although ColourPop d…
