nail art: festive christmas baubles nail art

It is my favourite time of the year because Christmas is around the corner! I love all the sparkly decorations, christmas lights, festive tunes, hot chocolate and gingerbread. So to celebrate the season with some festive cheer, I created some baubles nail art (inspired by nailstorming). I love how sparkly this design is and it definitely makes me happy because it looks just like christmas wrapping paper. I used nail polish from Etude House's Holiday Trio pack. I'm not sure if they still sell it because it was a christmas gift from my aunt last year. Anyhow, it's a relatively simple nail art and you only need four colours - deep red/maroon, metallic glittery gold, green and red glitter, and white.

  1. Paint two-three coats of dark red/maroon as a base colour.
  2. Next, paint on some green, red and gold glitter. Mine came together in a bottle but if you don't have that, you could paint separate coats of glitter. I tried not to pile on too much glitter so I only went with one coat of glitter and made sure they were evenly distributed on my nail. 
  3. Using the metallic glittery gold, dot on the shapes of the baubles. I literally did this in blobs with my brush, slowly dabbing out a circle to the best of my ability. 
  4. Finally, draw on your bauble designs using a nail brush or nail pen and white nail polish. 
Simple as that! Make sure to tag #megoostafashion if you try this out so that I can check our your creation and give it a like + comment! Happy holidays!

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. …

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…

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…
