Lynnderella Heart Strings

This is one of the special Valentine Lynnderellas that was gifted to me. I wore this a while ago but being the slacker I am, I'm just getting round to posting the pics.


Heart Strings has a strawberry pink tinted base with silver and red bars as well as tiny silver hexes. It also has a gorgeous blue-ish shimmer that runs through it.





I think this was one coat over Essence Ultimate Pink which is the perfect Barbie pink. So freaking pretty. I know bar glitter seems to skeeve some people out but I love it.

Also, is Heart Strings not the cutest name?! It reminds me of this....

Heartstrings. The Korean drama. Now, I'm not the biggest fan of Korean dramas. They tend to be frighteningly over-acted and I can't help but cringe through every scene. But I must say, the theme song to this one is so catchy. It's uplifting and makes me think happy thoughts. Especially the guitar at the start.


Okay... enough rambling for today. Hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Lynnderella The Bunny Code

Lynn has made this limited edition shade to help raise funds for Friends of Rabbits, a bunny rescue organisation. You can read more about how the fundraising event works and how you can have a chance to win a bottle of The Bunny Code over here at Sparkly Vernis and directly at Friends of Rabbits.


Go ahead and click the macro. I left it as large as Picasa would allow me to upload.






Three coats of The Bunny Code without any undies. TBC is composed of fine bright green glitter speckled with lots of random glitter pieces of all shapes and sizes in a shimmery clear base. It's reminiscent of jelly beans nestled in Easter grass. Completely and utterly gorgeous. It's very shiny and metallic looking.

As many of you know, I love bunnies. I do. And how can this post be without my precious guy?


Mario just being his usual cool self. Lounging about on his favourite towel, hanging with his bud Pooh.

Again, please check here for more information on how to win a bottle of The Bunny Code. You can also donate directly to Friends of Rabbits any time without entering the draw here.... because dear BunBuns deserve our friendship <3

Happy Easter!

I hope the Easter Bunny is generous to you all!




My Easter NOTD is Missha BL002 sponged with Missha GR001 and then a free hand bunny for an accent. It's pretty messy and you can see all the mistakes in the close up but I think it turned out pretty good.

And now for Mario's annual Easter appearance :)


*nose boop*

A Short Farewell

It's getting close to my end-of-year examinations and I am trying my hands at studying, hah! I think by taking a step back from here, I'll be able to better devote my time elsewhere. Where it is needed most.

My apologies for disappearing. I know that is always an annoyance to be left hanging...

This will not be goodbye forever, just a short farewell while real life takes its course.

See you soon,
Stef

A Little Spam And a New Look

What do you think of the new look? :) I've been meaning to update the design for a while and this weekend was the perfect time to do it. I wanted the design to be clean and simple so as to not take away from the actual content.

I love it lots, especially the cute little birdie in the corner! So cute!! Thanks so much to Smitten Blog Designs!

Okay, now onto today's post. I've only got a small offering of swatches since I've been busy trying to wrap my head around html coding. Never again...



Chi Chi Scene Queen. I wish there was a way I could type Chi Chi with those little lips. They make me laugh :) Now for the polish.. just look how pretty that green is! And the subtle silver veining is just beautiful.





OPI Show It And Glow It! So. Many. Colours. Here's a macro. Does someone want to count?






China Glaze Millennium. Silver chrome. Perfect silver chrome. Maybe not as mirror-like and reflective as Maybelline Mirror Image but it applies so much better. This is one coat. Perfect.




The Face Shop BR802. I wished so hard for this to work with my skin tone but just take a look above at how red and blotchy and gross my skin looks with this on. Ugh. BR802 is a peachy nude with lots of silver flaky shimmer. You can see it better up close...






A-England Tristam. I tried to resist. I tried so hard. But who can resist free international shipping. Did you hear me? FREE. *edit* Sadly, it looks like the offer has ended already. So I caved and bought Tristam. Dark navy blue with a really subtle holo sparkle. Nice!

China Glaze OMG on black KOTD and some other stuff

Here's my mani at the moment.



China Glaze OMG with plate M65 stamped on black. I'm really loving it!


Yesterday, some of my extended family came for the day including two of my lovely baby cousins. They are so super adorable! They really got into playing with my stash.. they kept picking out the polishes they liked and laying them on the floor.

On the left is Jenny who's two and a half, and Amy is on the right (she's eleven).

Some of what they picked out...

They have such great taste!

And here was Jenny's NOTD. d'awwwwww! She's got such little itty bitty fingers


They each left with a little goodie bag of nail polish at the end of the night :D They loved it!

FUTURE LACQUERHEADS!

Comments

Hey guys. I've been having some difficulty with the comment system here on Blogger so I switched to Disqus not so long ago.

Disqus then decided to be a bitch and remove itself from my blog completely and consequently, after I reinstalled, any comments made on the Disqus platform have been wiped :(

I want to let you guys know I appreciate each and every one of your comments and I'm really saddened by this. It shouldn't happen again but if it does, I'll be switching to another system..

Stoopid Disqus >:(
