New Years Glam: Sequined Nails

This was actually inspired by the Ciate Sequined Manicure set which retails for $19.99 per set. And I thought that the price is a little bit ridiculous, even though it's the cheapest among other Ciate sets (Caviar & Velvet), that's why I made this video. It's kinda the DIY version of the sequined set. Plus, you can save a LOT by doing it this way. The hexagon I got for 7000 rupiahs per jar = $0.70.

So, with that being said, I hope you guys enjoy this tutorial and THANK YOU for watching!!!
And subscribe if you want. It means a LOT to me. ♥

Last but not least, have a wonderful New Years everyone!!
I love you guys to bits and pieces ♥♥♥

Oh, and this is my last video this year. I hope to see you guys in 2013

♥ Do not double dip. Dip just once. The first time I tried and dip it twice, it became really bumpy and uneven.
♥ After the first dip, wait for a little bit before you pat your nail for the clear nail polish to dry a bit.
♥ Try mixing a lot of different colors of hexagon glitter. They're really pretty, especially if you got the holographic one :D

♥ November 2012 Favourites ♥

Hi loves <3

It has been quite a while since my last post, I thought after mid-exam I'll have a lot of free time, but turns out, I'm even more busy *sigh*

I know it's almost halfway through December, but nonetheless, here's products I've been loving for the month of November :)

I've only been getting into shaping & filling my eyebrows for a couple months. I used to think "nah, whatever eyebrows shape will work just fine. I have bangs to cover". But boy, was I wrong, eyebrows do frame your face and it does make a quite difference when you filling them in. Anyhoo, I bought this 'cos the one I stole (lol) from my mom was already so short. And the verdict is, I love it!! First thing first, it's quite cheap (less than 20k IDR)!! It glides on quite easily, not too "thick" (so you don't end up like you have caterpillar eyebows), and easy to blend in with your natural brows.

I've been on a hunt for lipstain for quite a while and I was collecting TBS receipt to get member card, so when I found this I was like, "Scorreee!!". I don't know if it's just because it's my first lipstain or what, but I really love it <3 The color is very buildable and nice. The downside is, it's quite drying. But worry not, nothing a good ol' lip balm can't do to moisturize you lips! *I think I'm gonna do a review on this one*

3)Maybelline - The Magnum Volum' Express & Oriflame - Revelation Mascara
I think Magnum is similar to Colossal one in the US, but I heard the wand is different. And the Oriflame I've had this for a loooong time, but never use it. When I revisit it again, I fell in love. It's not clumpy, and the wand is kinda skinny, which made the application easier. I love it. I don't think they still have this though.

Let me tell you, this is DABOMBDIGGITY (I know it's all in caps, because it's THAT good!!). It's sweet and salty and just so super yummy <3 It was a gift from my mom's friend and now I really want more but dunno where to get T.T

5) Lauren Conrad - Style
Since my last favs where I included L.A. Candy, I've been a little bit obsessed with Laured Conrad lol. I do love this book though. It's a fun read and I love all the eye candy pics inside :) Definitely going to buy the Lauren Conrad Beauty.

And that's conclude my November Favorites. I'm excited for Christmas and I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday <3 xoxo

Healthy Instant Noodle?

This is just a stupid quick filler post :3

My mom sent me this instant noodles, and I thought it was rather a unique one.

Now, my mom is quite health concious, so she cut out flavor enhancer (MSG, Vetsin, etc) and anything "instant" (which means contains lots of preservative agent) most of the time. So, with that being said, I was actually surprised she sent me this instant noodles.

No, this instant noodle is still not healthy because they probably still contains preservative, MSG and stuffs. This is just a tad bit heathier.

The condiment inside is quite different, usually the seasong is liquid, but this one has weird gel-like texture --".

And and, what really distinct is, the noodle is freakin' GREEN.

I've seen green noodles around, but not green instant noodles.

The taste was quite good, not as good as Indomie, of course :p

Worth a try though.

Okay, bye xoxo~

2 More Days to Go...

So, like I said in the last entry, I'm in the middle of mid-exam, thus the filler posts that I actually wrote in early november and just schedule it (I still have one more :p).

But, It's only 2 days left now and I'm super excited :D

I'll have a video up in early december <3

Till then, take care xoxo

Yes, I'm a sucker for cute packaging

It's pouring rain right now with some pretty big thunder and I'm craving for a piping hot cocoa but too lazy to go downstairs and make it lol.

Oh, and my modem is very slow because of the rain (it's still as fast as my old modem at it's best though), but I looove rain -minus the thunder-. The thought of getting all bundled up and cozy and sipping a cup of nice hot cocoa while reading a book. Hmm, that's the dream ♥

But I can't really do that because I'm currently in the middle of mid exam. Yeah, I'm still blogging though. That is so typical me, always want to blog when I have something more important to do and decide don't want to blog when I literally have zero thing to do.

Okay, enough rambling and let's cut to the chase (I feel like in one those action movie where I'm being all fierce and cool every time I use that phrase. I know, I'm lame.).

Moving on.

You know what?I'm going to make me some hot cocoa right now and watch friends and continue this entry later or tomorrow. xoxo


I finished my hot cocoa, watched an episode of friends, read blogs, reviewed my calculus II a bit and now I'm going to continue this entry :)

So the other day I went for some grocery shopping and other stuffs.

And did I mention that grocery shopping is my most favorite kind of shopping?? Yes, it is. I'm getting all excited every time I go for grocery shopping and I can spend hours in a supermarket just looking through all the products (again, I know, I'm lame. Get over it.).

As I was paying at the cashier, I realized that 90% of things that I bought, I bought that particular brand because I think the packaging is, well, for lack of a more sophisticated word, cute.

I know, I bought things because the packaging is cute. No, not the actual thing in it -which will make more sense, I guess?-, but the packaging. Even I, judge myself and expect something more.

Let's go over the damage control :

1) Dua Belibis Ketchup - because it has a freakin' mickey slapped on the bottle. I usually buy the Del Monte one, but this one has mickey!! How adorable is that??!! At the cashier, the employee even thought that it was a shampoo bottle.

2) Kotex Sanitary Pad - tmi alert. I've never leaned to any particular brand for this category before, but I don't think I've ever tried Kotex. So, yeah, the packaging is all cute and nice, but when I open it at home, it has purple hearts print on the pad (I was gonna post the picture of it too, but then it will be too tmi)!! Okay, so this one, I actually bought it because of the thing in it too! But then again, I think to myself, WHY on earth would I need a pad with purple heart prints on it???!!! Yes, I just post my sanitary pad for the whole world to see. Good job me *pat own head*.

3) Vivelle Hello Kitty Hand Wash - this one is kinda impulse buy because it wasn't on the list, but I was planning to get some hand wash at some point -because I cannot keep using shampoo as hand wash-, so it wasn't so bad getting it after all. Plus, you know, it has hello kitty on it :p.

4) Cussons Wet Wipes - by any means, I do not need another pack of wet wipes for at least a half of year. I've stocked up mine with the one from carrefour (another damage because of hello kitty and keropi packaging -___-"). But this one is so cheap and it is strawberry-scented and melon-scented, so I thought, you know what, you'll always need wet wipes and it practically can keep for a very long period of time, why not stock up some more? *bang head on the wall* 

5) Scanpan Santoku Knife (& knife sharpener) - why? because it's purple. My favourite color. Even right now I'm trying to make my bedroom into some kind of place where barney has been puked all over it. But in my defense, it was a good deal. If I buy the knife(cost 120k idr), I get the sharpener(cost 150k idr) for free. And I've been trying to find a knife sharpener anyway. Of course if I buy just any sharpener it would cost a LOT less than 120k idr, but the knife is actually really good. I love it and I can't wait to cook more with it. They said that this brand is the one who sponsored Masterchef Aussie.

6)Scotch Glue Stick - It's purple. Purple glue stick. I officially love 3M ♥♥♥

I'm done with the damage control. See? See? I can get so caught up when I do grocery shopping it becomes dangerous (okay, ridiculous might be the right word for it).

I'm going to buy ground beef tomorrow for spaghetti bolognese, let's hope I don't get all cray cray over packaging again.

Okay, bye xoxo

Breakfast Bruschetta

I made this a couple weeks ago, looked quite nice, right? lol *self-praise*

It was scrambled eggs on top of toasted garlic-buttered baguette. Tasted okay :p
I seriously don't know what else to write --"a, so I'll just stop here.

have a nice day xoxo

Sweet Little Candlelight

Nope, it's not as romantic as it sounds from the title lol.

A couple weeks ago, the power went out, so we had a blackout. 

I was cooking calamari rings with my bf when it became pitch dark, so I had to cook with the light from my phone -___-".

Anyhoo, it was still dark when I finished cooking, so I lit up my Yankee's Machintosh as a light. Technically, it WAS a "candlelit" dinner, yes?lol.

We spent the entire blackout time eating while watching Friends.

It was quite sweet, relaxing, and nice :)

Revlon Haul

I went to SMS the other day to buy my friend a gift but ended up bought this nail polishes for myself *insert face palm* (It's okay, I still bought the gift lol).

From left to right : Peach Smoothie, Mistletoe, Cloud

I think I've said this before, but normally I won't buy Revlon Top Speed because the price is almost twice the regular one and they don't dry that fast either (despite the pretty colors).

But the Cloud was on sale, together with the Peach Smoothie. I've been on the hunt for Peach Smoothie too, so I bought those 2.

While I was waiting for my receipt, I looked around and saw Mistletoe and immediately fell in love with it. I haven't swatched it yet, but it looked so pretty from the bottle and Christmas is almost here, so I thought it suit the occasion. But, in short, yes, it was an impulse buy. *double face palm*

Anyhoo, expect reviews of these babies soon <3

♥ October 2012 Favourites ♥

Hi loves!!!

In this post, I just want to share things I discovered and have been loving in month of October.

Scented Candles

I've been wanting to try scented candles since a long long time ago, but they were so damn expensive. Anyway, I decided to bought Yankee's Midsummer Night and Candle-lite's Fresh Melon Slice last month and I fell in LOVE!!

I became obsessed with scented candles wtf and they're downright bad for my wallet -___-".

Nevertheless, when I almost burned out my candles, I went ahead and bought candles again, this time in bigger jar, Yankee's Macintosh (10% off) and Candle-lite's Ocean Blue Mist (20% off). And they smelled soooo good!! I've been saving these 2 candles 'cos I'm not planning to buy anymore candle anytime soon.

The Body Shop - Spa Wisdom Morocco Orange Blossom Finishing Mist

Okay, this is purely a coincidental buy. TBS had a sale where you buy 2 products for only a price of 1 product or something like that. And there 3 types of products for this sale, 2 body lotion and 1 body mist. 

I bought the lemon body lotion (which is the product I was initially so excited for) and this body mist, just because I didn't like the other body lotion. 

I really wasn't expecting to like this body mist so much 'cos I don't really like the smell of their Spa Wisdom Morocco line products. BUT!! This finishing mist smelled so fresh, citrusy and light. For uni, I don't feel like wearing eau de perfume that has "heavier" smell, so this body mist is perfect! Plus, I got it on sale lol.

Infact, this has been my go to product everytime I go to uni for the last month (until now) and the lemon body lotion, which is the product I really wanted initially, I haven't really used. I think I've only used it like once or twice.

Lauren Conrad's L.A. Candy

I haven't finished reading it yet (p.200ish now), but I'm loving it so far. It's easy to read and quite entertaining. I bring this book with me everytime I go and know I'll have some times to kill.

That's all the things I've been loving for the October <3

Jessie J Halloween Nails Tutorial

Okay, here it is, the nail art tutorial I talked about before :D

This video is probably took the longest time to edit more than my other videos. It took me about 3 or 4 days because I used my dad's laptop (which, infact, capable of editing this video, I've always thought it'll just crash on me in the middle of editing, which it did, but thank God, I have the one I already converted into mpeg-4) and it's really slow in loading and also because I tried out this new editing software, so I just need more to get used to it and of course, because I don't have all day to just sit and edit, I have uni assignment and stuff (huft).

Anyway all in all, I loooooveee this new ediing software I tried out. It has so much more helpful features, I have more control over the editing videos. LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!!! It's DA BOMB DIGITTY~~!! (compare to my previous one)

So this is the video :D I hope you guys like it <3

I'll edit this entry and add more pictures later xoxo

Sneak Peek : Halloween Nails

I'm still in finishing step right now, but hopefully I'll be able to upload tonight :)

I know it's only days away from halloween, but better late than never.

Anyway, I was removing the mani and found that it left the design on the cotton, so I decided to make this sneak peek entry :D

It's kinda blurry, but I'm sure you can guess it right.

bye. xoxo.

Halloween Fancy French Nail Art Tutorial

Hi guys, halloween is near us and I want to show you cute halloween nail art.

And yes, this is my last year nail art tutorial, but I don't think I'll do halloween nails this year, except if I could pull something off last minutes 'cos I have a pile of assignments this semester wtf.

I don't really celebrate halloween, because, well, no one really does in my country. And I actually don't know the story behind halloween celebration lol. I tried to google it once, but I don't really understand the whole story.

But still, I love the atmosphere around this time a year (on the internet, of course, I don't get to feel it live here). So, without further ado...the tutorial :)

Have a great halloween :)

Friday, October 12, 2012 windows crashed..

Anyway, My dad's birthday is coming soon, so I'm going back to Jogja tmw ^^

That's all I guess..nitenite xoxo

Fimo Craze

I ordered this bundle from disdus, a groupon site.

I haven't done any fimo nail art in a while, but it was a really really great deal, so I just snatched it up!!

Usually I bought my fimo cane at 7k-8k per cane, but this one is only 59k for freaking 40 fimo canes!!!! (+ 1 bottle of nail glue)

ONLY 1,5k per cane!!
*tears of joy*

The model of the canes is random, so I don't like some of them, but I will say that I like more than half of 'em :D

Fimo is one of those nail art things that for me, is not cheap, so I'm incredibly happy now I feel like I just ate a glittery rainbow~

Expect a fimo nail art soon ;)

take care.xoxo.

p.s. Price in IDR

Revlon - Tropical Temptation Review

I was planning to be sound asleep by now. But of course, my brain disagreed with me -___-"

Sooo, here I am still wide awake *katy perry's song in the background*

Anyway, I decided to just write my another revlon nail polish review tonight.

Today STAR is.. *drumroll please*

To me, this shade screams S-U-M-M-E-R.

It's a bright coral.

The formula has jelly consistency (please don't quote me on this, because I've never had jelly nail polish before, so I'm just guessing this is one of them because it's kinda watery).

And of course, because it's watery, it's really sheer.

You'll need a minimum of 4 to 5 coats to get it opaque.

1 coat. I smushed my pinky one -__-"
2 coats. Still very sheer
3 coats
4 coats. Finally!! ^^

All in all, I actually do like the formula because they're easy to work with. I think it's great if you want a color that you can build-up. The color is gorgeous too :) 

I hope you like this quick review <3 I have one more revlon nail polish to be reviewed, so don't get bored with Revlon just yet ;)

DIY(sorta) - Make-up Brushes Holder

 I don't even think that this is a DIY entry (hence the title), but..oh, well :p

I loooovee looking at it!! So pretty and sparkly *-* 

The (sorta) DIY part!

You'll need:
  • Clear glass
  • Crystal pebbles

  • Just fill the glass with the crystal pebbles (I used combination of small purple and big clear one)
  • Put your brushes/anything-you-want in.


Haha I know I know, you must be thinking like "wtf??!! Do you call this a DIY tutorial??!!@#*#$!"

But still, I think it made an utterly cute brush-holder.


It's so freaking cheap to put together!!

The glass only cost me 6k, the pebbles thingy is actually for aquarium decoration. They cost around 5k-10k, I think.

So, in total, much much less than 20k = LESS THAN $2!!
(And I still have quite a lot of the leftover crystal pebbles)

Gotta love that, right? <3

Okay then, byebye xoxo

Seriously drooling for...


*look look! my font color even all matchy matchy with the pink one*

It's basically iphone 5 without the telephone, massages -anything that has to do with simcard and cell radio-, and 8MP camera (this one is 5MP) and the price is half the iphone 5!!

I definitely don't really need the telephoney thing because I have my trusty blackberry and I really really don't like typing my sms on screen (I like me some keypad please!!), and definitely can make peace with 5MP camera, because, let's face it, iphone have a sucky camera and just not supposed to make good photos.

I mainly want it for the apps which I think some of them really helpful!!

Anyone wanna chip in and buy me one?lol *wink wink*

have a nice day xoxo

NOTD - Purple Ombre Heart

Finally! I'm able to make another entry :D

First thing first, I'm really sorry for the quality of the photos in this post. It's quite horrible T.T. I'll do better next time *pinky promise*.

Now, for the mani, I've been wanting to try this "ombre" nails for a while, but kept pushing it off.

I've done gradient/ombre mani before, but with different technique. This one is what's popular now where you put layers of nail polishes on a sponge at once and dab them onto your nails. It's also supposed to give you much more smooth effect, I guess.

 All in all, I'm not pleased with how it turned out. It could've been better.

I'll definitely give this many another visit and make it better :)

Product used :
  • White (as a base) - The Face Shop WH002
  • all Purple - The Face Shop PP405 PP401  PP403 *light to dark
  • Black - The Face Shop BK901
  • Glitter - I'll get back to you later Rainbow 55
  • Topcoat - The Face Shop
  • make-up sponge

have a great day.xoxo.

Remember me?

Yes, I'm still very much alive and healthy (well, not 100%, I've been a bit sick).

I've just been kinda busy and taking break here and there, that's why I haven't post any videos in 2 months - I think? and haven't blog for more than 2 weeks.

But I'm gonna go back on track on October :D

Till then, take care

Revlon - Peachy Review


It's been a while. Again.

It's hard for me to keep up wth my blog with all of this holiday feeling goodness around me. I just want to cuddle up in my bed and spend the rest of the day doing exactly nothing lol.

But!! Today I have yet another Revlon nail polish review <3. And I hope you're not tired of it just yet cos I have 2 more of them coming :)

Anyhoo this time I give their top-speed nail polish a try..


(I really should've cleaned up the messy bits of the label before taking pics --")

It's an absolutely beautiful peach coral color with creme finish that's perfect for spring/summer.

The color is fresh and soft enough to be a whimsical spring color.

And yet bright enough to be a fun summer color <3

With that being said, you can tell that I'm in love with the color. That's why I decided to buy it, normally I wouldn't buy their top-speed 'cos it costs almost twice the regular nail polish.

The formula is good. 2 coat is enough to get it opaque and smooth. I'm happy with it.

As for the fastness of the drying process, it's not that significantly different from the regular one, so it's kinda a downer after you pay more money. I guess yeah it dries a bit faster, but not that fast that I will be willing to pay more. But, note this, the top-speed line I think have a prettier colors. Whether it's worth to pay more is definitely your call. If you have more money -plus it's still cheaper than opi-, why not? :)

Now, let's get into the swatch!!

1 coat

2 coats. See how it's already opaque and smooth? love it :)

Soo, yeah, I think that's all my review for this nail polish.

LOVE the color, love the formula, not very keen with the pricetag lol.

My Nail Parlor Corner 1.0

Ok, so I just bought some little boxes and organized the desk on my little nail art corner, so I decided to do a tour kinda blog post on where I usually do my nails ;)


(this post has been on hold for like 4 days now -___-", so now I'm gonna continue)

Okay dokay~

FIRST!! The overview ;)

Yes, when I say little nail art corner, I literally mean little corner.

p.s. please ignore the hanger on the floor there.

Underneath the table I have some magazines and the handycam I used for filming tutorial.

I'm not going into details with the side because it's super messy and I haven't found a way to organize with this small space yet. Basically I have all my nail polishes in that brown box (it was a shoes box), my nail art accessories (rhinestone, stripping tape, pearls, etc) in the gold box (it was a mooncake box), and between them are acrylic paints, palette, and little container.

On the side note, if you have mooncake boxes, utilize them as containers, they're usually very pretty!!!

And now, the table, which basically is the reason I wanted to do this post in the first place...

Cos I just organized them and just got those fuschia boxes and hamtaro containers for such a great great deal!!

I bought it at a japanese store, similar to Daiso, only in this one the price vary. And they have section for things that are on sale. I think I got the hamtaro for 50% off and the fuschia for 30% off. The total only cost me IDR 30k (less than $3)!!!

Now, let's go into more details :D

Right : Little boxes I made using wrapping paper, little plate and lit I used for my acrylic paint.

Middle : Nail care (nails/hands cream, nail butter, nail nourishing stuff, orange stick).

Left : Pedi kit (foot bath, exfoliator, pumice, bath salt).

Selotape tuck between the fuschia box and purple one.

Purple box : nail polish removers (yes, I have 5 bottles of them lol), big tube of white acrylic paint, water spray for when I use acrylic paint, more nail polish remover in little bottle (never use them though), and the salon shaper (only use them once!! such a waste -__-". I might revisit them again for my money sake haha).

Oh! Oh! The nail polish remover in the bottle with white lit is milk-scented!! Neat or what! Never really use them though. I bought in Singapore for like S$1 or a little bit more.

And the clear glass container beside it actually a lipstick container, so it has all this separator thing which is p.e.r.f.e.c.t to store nail art brushes, dotting tools, nail buffer, nail clipper, orange stick, tweezer, cotton bud, etc~~

And isn't that hamtaro container sooooo cuteee???!!

There was a fuschia one, but I hesitate to buy them, so I put them back and went around the store, when I decided to buy them, they were already gone T.T, so I bought this gold and green one.

I use it to store my cottonpads and aluminium foil :D

Before I bought them, I store my cottonpads and aluminium foil in this little boxes I made using wrapping paper, which obviously cannot hold as much, so I'm so so so happy with this finding ^^

And that should end my nail corner tour :)

I know the writing in this post seemed very rushed, that's because I'm super sleepy and I don't want to put this post on hold for another day and since it's been 3 days since I initially made this post I get kinda bored and didn't really have the mood to make them more, well, decent :p

anyhoo, good night xoxo

Revlon - Touch of Mauve Review

Okay, this is another Revlon nail polish review.

It's not that I'm a big fan of them, it's because they're the nail polishes that I have easy access on & still quite in my budget.

Anyway, I went to a Revlon counter a couple days ago specifically to buy their Cotton Candy nail polish I talked a couple months ago but to no avail, so I bought this one instead.

So, here it is Touch of Mauve

It's a pinkish nude color with purple/silver micro-shimmer. The micro-shimmer doesn't really show on nails, but you can see it in the bottle.

the formula is okay. They're not the best to work with, but hey, it's Revlon, I never really get along that well with their application mainly because of the brush (the formula itself is actually not much of a problem, but I like my brush wider). With this one though, the formula is a tinsy bit hard to layer with cos they make your nail kinda bumpy and a bit hard to get a smooth finish without topcoat.

Anyhoo, the opaqueness is good enough. You can get away with 2 coats, I suppose, but I think 3 coats is better.

This is with 1 coat and the nail line is actually still quite obvious.

This is 2 coats. It doesn't really show in the picture, but there's still a bit nail line peeking throuh and still very bumpy, so I decided on 3rd coat.

This one is 3 coats without topcoat.

With topcoat (really smoothen the bumpiness). The color is a bit different here because of the lighting, the 3rd coat photos is the one with the accurate color.

The close-up on the micro-shimmer. It's almost non-existen irl and you can't really see it. If you don't really look into it, it's like a creme finish. 

So, that's my opinion about Touch of Mauve.

I do love the color, because the nude does match my skintone, but the application I'm not really keen with. Would I buy this again if I ever run out? Yes, because this is one of only 3 nude nail polishes that I've found matches my skintone :)

Revlon - Emerald City Review

Okay, it's been quite sometime since the last time I blogged and I don't really have any good excuses for this, cos really it's just because it's holiday and I'm back home.

Naturally, when it's holiday and I'm back home, I have literally nothing to do and I'm sure as hell will splurge every living second of it lazying around, soaking all the holiday-goodness, and get as much sleep as I can before I have to go back to college in mid-sept.

So, yeah, that's what I've been doing for the past 2 weeks. In the first and a half week I'm even too lazy to move my ass to go outside the house. I'm like one of those vampire whose afraid that sunlight will burn them, thus stay indoor. Except, I stayed inside at night too. I only go outside for dinner every other day. These last days I've gone out with friends though.

And wasn't that boring to just lazying around for one and a half week, you ask me?

NOPE. I cherish every second of it!

Move on past that, today I decided to start blogging and, you know, doing something again lol.

This is a review of the other Revlon nail polish of the 2 Revlon I bought last April or May. The other one is Ocean Breeze.

Now, as the title said, this one is Emerald City

See see how pretty and shimmery it is in the bottle???? It's a beautiful deep forest green color with shimmery micro-glitter. How can you not love that????

Anyway, even though I bought it under the presumption it would be a shimmery nail polish, it turns out to have a suede finish. Kinda disappointed, but this is actually my first suede, so I'm completely okay with that.

The formula is quite opaque and easy to apply.

This is with one coat. I know, doesn't seem opaque, but all you need is 2 coats. And that's for me is a quite opaque formula.

2 coats. The polish turns suede very fast. Oh how I wish it has a shimmery finish :(

Close-up on the micro-glitter.

Without topcoat.

With topcoat. Even with topcoat, after a few minutes, they still turns into kinda suede finish.

Overall, I love the color, like the formula, and if I ever run out, I'll go buy again ;)
