Swatch: OPI Push and Shove

Hey everyone! 

OPI recently released their new collection - the Gwen Stefani Collection. When they became available at Polish Please, I immediately bought 2 bottles (Push and Shove and Love Angel Music Baby) from the collection. 

For this post, I'm just going to post swatches of Push and Shove. :) This is my first chrome polish so I have nothing to compare it with but I'm really in love with it. I love the shiny chrome finish. I can't stop looking at my nails! Haha. 

I took a lot of photos because I love it. :) I used two thin coats for this and no top coat. Photos were taken under artificial light.

Black and White


I finally found time to do a simple nail art. I'm just really busy with school and I don't have the luxury of time to make time-consuming nail arts. 

Last weekend, there was a share-a-thon that happened on Facebook. Bloggers were sharing each other's pages and blog links. It was really a fun activity. I shared a few blogs especially my favorite ones. Plus, I also got to discover a bunch of amazing nail blogs and pages. 

Before the massive sharing, I only had 47 likes on Facebook. Now, I have over 500 likes! Yay! :D Thank you so much to those who liked my page and of course to those who shared my page. Love you!

Birthday nails


Last Sunday was my birthday. I actually planned to make a birthday mani on that day but I was too busy with school. Now that our two quizzes (Anatomy and Biochemistry) are finished, I decided to push through with my birthday nail art plan. 

This is just really simple stamping. :)

The Vampire Diaries

I am a big fan of the TV show, The Vampire Diaries (well, Ian Somerhalder is so handsome). So, this nail art is inspired by the show. :) 

I am now practicing my stamping skills and I'm pretty happy with this. :)

Taking a different path

I started this blog doing freehand nail arts. I enjoyed doing it but it just took too much of my time. Now that I am in med school, I don't have the luxury of time. Thus, I'm finally shifting to stamping. I used to think that stamping is for noobs. I was so wrong. It takes a lot of practice and creativity. 

My MoYou London nail plates arrived a week ago and I was so excited to play with them. I thought I would be finished in an hour but I kept redoing my mani because I'm just so bad at stamping. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed the whole process. I just need to practice, practice, practice!!!
