Let's Learn to Selfie!

Happy Chinese New Year!

Have a great reunion dinner everyone.

Thought I would celebrate the new lunar calendar year by... learning to selfie.
Ever tried snuggling up really close to your phone camera and making disturbingly cutesy faces? No? How about trying something new for New Years'? It's actually pretty fun, as I've discovered today.
Pretend you're the absolutely-most-fabulous-monstrosity (that was a mouthful) on the planet and click away!


Attaining a new level of vanity.

Hey, you're only young once!

Docile: D203

Hello world! Bringing you the first review/swatch!

Now, most of us have probably never heard of this brand. I picked it up (very inexpensively) from SASA's. Being such an obscure brand I thought - hey, why not? Let's review this!

It's a pretty true, true red from Docile. I think it's rather flattering!

It goes on smoothly but slightly streaky. The streaks aren't too obvious, thankfully. This is 2-3 coats.

The bottle makes a nice accessory on your vanity, though the cap is a fingerprint magnet.

One odd issue: It stained my Sally Hansen 2-in-1 topcoat brush :( I use basecoat, so my nails are safe. While applying topcoat, some red polish came off and stuck to it.

Overall, a nice, inexpensive polish. Might want to watch out for the staining though.

Have you tried any Docile polishes? What do you think about them?

Hello, World!

Hello, world!

How is everyone in the blogosphere - and beyond - doing?

A little self-introduction.

I began blogging back in 2007, up till 2009. I used to share random thoughts and mainly blogged with a group of friends. Down the road, I stopped. I don't recall if school took over my life, or I stopped feeling inclined to run a public diary

Then, I discovered the world of beauty blogs!

I've always had a profound interest in cosmetics and all things fashion-related. They're beautiful, fun and - what we always hear - a great form of self-expression! I just love scrolling through pages of eye-candy. Enjoying the positive energy and excitement surrounding new acquisitions. What's not to love?

So here I am, starting one. 

I'll be casually reviewing items as I get to play with them. I don't have a fancy DSLR camera or lighting set-ups, so please bear with me!

I'm new to this, and would really love to hear from you, fellow readers who happen to drop by :) I'm open to constructive criticism too.

Onward to 2014!
