nail art: sweet bits ice cream drip nails



I've always wanted to try out this drip nail art thing because they look so fun and yummy. But they look a tad bit hard because to make it nice, you really have to know how to draw that drip part nicely. I still need a bit of practice, as you can see. 


  1. I used a blue nail polish with confetti from etude house. It's part of some ice cream series I guess since the bottle is shaped like one. It's cute, but it's actually not very nice to use because the colour pigments don't spread well. Otherwise, it dries pretty fast. As for the brown, choose something dark that looks like chocolate sauce, if you are aiming for this look. Other colours are fine too. There are some pretty cool combinations if you google them. 
  2. I had to do 2 - 3 coats of base colour to hide the streaking and ensure that the colour was more opaque.
  3. For beginners, I suggest starting with a line of brown (I think I'm gonna call it chocolate sauce instead). It doesn't have to be straight. 
  4. Then, make a circle for the bottom of the drip by dotting your brush or dotting tool. Extend the drip upwards to the tip of your nail in a thinner line. If you look closely at nicer drips, they actually have a curvature where it is starting to drip. It gives it a more realistic look. I tried to do that, but it still doesn't look as nice. I guess I'll have to find a better method of achieving the look. The curvature also applies to the drip so it sort of forms an elongated hour glass shape.
So, this nail art is really very yummy to look at. It makes me crave for ice cream every time.

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
