NOTD! 9th Feb 2010 :D

In my previous post here, I showed you my new nail polish and a NOTD photo. Well, I am a little disappointed with the nail polish, but what should be expected from a £1 bottle from George Asda's range??

Even with the streaky brush, I did get pretty much even coverage. It lasted until Sunday, so it was good for 2-3 days without chipping which I think is a pretty long time for a bad nail polish! I think I had a few coats of top coat on it but still!! So it's pretty good for a very cheap polish, but I don't think I'll be buying anymore from Asda!

I had to take it off because chipped nail polish looks nasty and I don't like it flaking off randomly! Also, I start to pick at it and that weakens your nails... I've worked so hard to strengthen my nails that I can't go back now!!!!

My friends who look at my nails always seem quite amazed that they're not fake because I groom them well and keep them rather neat! Also, I shape them square so I guess that could be why. They're rather thick from years of Nail Envy treatment ^_^ (I drink a lot of full fat milk too though!)


I didn't go back to my beloved O.P.I. because I had a mature-ish Max Factor nailfinity nail polish to try from the latest Aussie event that I went to (see post here). So I put on the beautiful nude colour in 223 See Through Peach just to keep them looking tidy and shiny! I don't like the look of my bare nails anymore. I find nude nail polish lengthens my fingers rather nicely, but having a solid plain colour makes me feel a little boring!

*O.P.I. Natural Nail Base Coat (I'm trying to use this up, not particularly fond of it!)
*Max Factor nailfinity in 223 See Through Peach
*17 Double Gloss Top Coat (BEST EVAR!!)


I mentioned this on Twitter (follow me if ya like!) and @charlenejudith replied this to me: "@moonbeamstrlite Haha. I did that last night! You can do navy blue French tips! Or those cute little lace designs from stickers/ stamps." I had totally forgotten about these cute stickers of flowers and dragonflies I had bought myself a while ago! I think I'm done for tonight, but I might apply some on Friday if I still don't like the plain block colour for Chinese New Year this weekend!!


I am very excited!!!

Do you celebrate the lunar new year too??

Love love and naillove!
