diy: aurora galaxy phone case

I've been intending to do this for a very long time. I bought a bunch of 1yuan phone cases to diy. Anyway, I love galaxy stuff. It's so magical~ 

Materials:
  • Phone case
  • Nail polish
  • Makeup sponge
1. I am using a black plastic phone case and white, hot pink, purple and blue nail polish. According to the colour chart, that translates into deep pink, dark orchid and dodgerblue. You can use any other coloured phone case as well. Just paint it over with black or white if you wish to. As for the nail polish colours, feel free to experiment with other colours like green, red, brown or orange. Google some images for inspiration!
2. I sliced my makeup sponge into a smaller piece for easier usage. Take your paint and paint on the sponge. Alternatively, you can pour out some paint and dab your sponge on it. Same same. 
3. With your paint on the sponge, dab over the case. The key is to be messy and random. Just freestyle. Well, that's what I did. I used white for a base first because my paints did not show up on the black on it's own. 
4. Mix dabbing and wiping motions. Don't forget about the sides of the cover!
5. Don't add too much of the same colour at one spot. Try to spread it out. The nail polish should dry pretty fast so you do not have to worry about that. 
6. I did 2 coats of colour for some portions because I wanted to enhance the colour or because I wanted to change the look in some areas. 
7. Add some stars using your white polish. You can use a toothpick to help you. Just dot on white dots randomly. You can draw some diamond stars too. If you have glitter nail polish, I think that would be nice to use too. 
8. Don't forget to put on a transparent layer of top coat or modge podge for protection. I put on two coats. Give it a couple of days to completely dry before using. 

And if you don't like it at all, you can always remove it with nail polish remover! 

I was kinda worried about how it was going to turn out at first. When you start out, you have no idea what to do, but there is really no right or wrong with this. So, you can just experiment.

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

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 w

Lime Crime Wet Cherry Lip Gloss Swatches & Review on Asian Skin (NC20)

Lime Crime came out with their new line of sheer lip glosses recently. I've done a swatch and review video on YouTube but I haven't done a write-up with close up swatch pictures for anyone who wants reference. There are 14 shades in total at the moment and they retail for $18. You get 2.96ml of product in each tube, which honestly is quite little. These lip glosses come in a chubby clear acrylic tube with a pink cap. The tube itself is quite big but don't let it fool you, because 2.96ml/0.1oz of product isn't as much as it looks. The applicator is a really big doe foot which is great for full lips but for me, it's just way too big and the applicator tends to pick up too much product for one application. The lip gloss has a delicious cherry candy scent to it which I love though! These go on sheer because they are meant to be sheer lip glosses. They give a nice tinted look but some colors tend to look streaky up close because of this. They do sink into your l
