nail art: wunderlust

New nail art for the week is up! I've made a video tutorial for this as well so you can check that out below. This week's nail art is all about triangles and they are giving off so much tumblr vibes! I couldn't help but edit the photo and use some filters and effects from my newly bought Afterlights app. I've considered getting it for such a long time and it's actually quite reasonably priced for such pretty filters. 

Most products for this tutorial can be found on Simply Spoiled. Use the code "megoosta" for 40% off your order!

Colours and Materials:

  • Pink - I used a pink colour changing polish which changes from from light pink to dark pink. Not very obvious but you can see the change in the video while I was painting.
  • White
  • Dark red
  • Silver
  • Black
  • Gold glitter
  • Toothpick
  1. Paint your base colour on. 
  2. On your middle and ring finger, start painting white lines. I painted across then diagonally to make the triangles.
  3. Fill in the triangles with colour.
  4. Touch up the lines.
  5. From your bottle of gold glitter, take a toothpick to pick up a speck of glitter to place on your index, little finger and thumb.
  6. Finish with a top coat. 
I think four rows of triangles is a good number, like the one on my ring finger. Got greedy with my middle finger and regretted. 
Also would like to make a special mention to Paul Hewitt for sending this lovely phrep anchor bracelet in navy and pink. One more addition to the arm party. It's super cute and well made with a nice rustic vintage look. Check out their watches too. They go so well, but it's got to go with my DW here. My newest hand chain obsession from forever 21. I need more.

xoxo

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…

Arctic Fox Hair Dye Review on Dark Unbleached Hair

I've been meaning to try Arctic Fox's hair dyes for a couple of years but never got around to it because I feared it wouldn't show up on dark hair. It's been coming up more and more on Instagram again so I did some research and apparently Purple Rain, Aquamarine and Poseidon do show up on dark hair. So that's what I purchased! These retail for $7.99 (4 fl oz) or $13.99 (8 fl oz) on the Arctic Fox website but I got mine off Amazon.  Arctic Fox hair dyes are vegan and cruelty free. They also do not contain harsh chemicals like peroxides, ammonia and PPD. These are semi-permanent and they contain conditioning agents which means you can use these dyes as often as you want to without damaging your hair. Semi-permanent hair dyes only coat your hair so it will fade with each wash. The bottle claims that it can last up to 40 washes. These smell like grape candy so it is such a treat to use them. The instructions to use this is pretty simple. 1. Shampoo and wash hair witho…
