SWATCH: UNI Chartreuse Yellow

Hi ladies! Pretty windy today. I spent the last day of my off alone, doing the laundry, dishes, cooking food, etc.. But it was all good. Sometimes, you need to spend some time alone to think things over, reflect a little and yeah, do stuff at home that you normally can't do during your work days. Of course, my day won't be complete without some swatching. So, let me show you something incredible. Its one of the polishes I won from Rory's giveaway. I give you UNI Chartreuse Yellow.

UNI Chartreuse Yellow - well, it really doesn't have a name, I just googled it up and the closest color was Chartreuse yellow. In the picture it looks like Golden Yellow but in real life, it has a little hint of green in it.

Application was ok, a one-coater but I did two to even things out. 

Sorry for the nubbins. I've been wanting to have longer nails,  its just that its not allowed at work.

 I think its a gorgeous color. One of the few yellows that I can wear.

It wasn't even streaky, formula was perfect. 

 I tried searching for this brand on the internet. Unfortunately, there was nothing. Zero.

But that's ok. I still have a very pretty polish that's just right for summer. And speaking of summer, I am so envious of my boyfriend because he's out in Boracay with his colleagues, enjoying the beach, basking in the sun and getting one heck of a tan! Bah- humbag. When will I have a nice vacation?? I'm so dying for one! But then, he's attending a conference there so he's technically still working even if he's on the island. =p

Oh, let me show you what Boracay looks like:

This is an aerial shot of the party island.

And here's the grotto.

And the beachfront. So anybody who's interested just click HERE to find out more of this island.

That's it for me today. Goodnight.

SWATCH: OPI Not like the movies and Gofun Nail Polish

Hi everyone! How was everyone's weekend? Mine was all work. But it's not that bad, I enjoyed every single minute of it. Thanks to my colleagues, we laughed our asses off the whole time we were working. So today's my off and I was very excited because now I can do a swatch of my new polishes!

First polish that I grabbed from the shelf was OPI Not like the movies.

OPI Not Like the Movies - a silver and purple duochrome, application was perfect, brush was exquisite. Took me 3 coats to get this look.

 I like it a lot, although I haven't tried it with Black Shatter or any crackle polish yet. I got this from Annie Countryman. Thanks again ate Annie! =)

But it just made me wonder, why does it look so familiar. Orly Space Cadet? But I have that one too and I compared it against the other. My eyes are just fooling me. There's no way their colors are the same. 

Now we get to the other polish:

Gofun Nail Polish (shell-based pigment nail polish) - in Mint Green, although in the picture it looks really blue. I tried taking a lot of shots, unfortunately it constantly showed me blue polish.

 I got this polish from Rory of The Varnish Vixen. Thanks again Rory!

I wish you could see how beautiful it is in real life.

Absolutely non-toxic and Big 3 free.

And yes, I love it! Love the color, love the formula. Although the brush was pretty small but its workable.

There ya have it! I know its a bit short, but hey, at least I got to play with my polishes. =)

Enjoy your week!

RANDOM: A quick update

Hi ladies! I'm very sorry if I haven't posted anything yet.. I was very busy with work in the hospital which takes up my whole day and sleep was all that was left for me.. I did have a 3-day leave last week but I was in the province because of my grandfather's funeral. A lot of things happened in the past two weeks and I'm really sorry for the hiatus. Promise, I'll come up with something this weekend! I miss painting my nails too! Been naked for 2 weeks now! I miss color on my nails and glitters, holos, duochromes and shimmers! 


I also received something from Ate(means older female/ sister) Annie. I got OPI Not like the movies, Milani Silver Dazzle and Blue Fizz! Dammit! I'm dying for some me time! I still have a lot of untrieds, I just need more, MORE time for myself. I didn't have a chance to take a picture of these babies. Well I'm very much sure you know these polishes anyway. =)

Alright, I'm so so tired right now and its almost midnight. Gotta sleep, my eyes are reaaally getting heavy now. Promise, I'll make it up to you, my dear dear readers.

Camille =)

RANDOM: Package from Varnish Vixen

After all the hectic schedule, the busy week and the annoying fact that I have polish-free nails for 5 days in a row, no make that 7 days, something really made my week. 

Something in the mail? 


Nail polish? 

You betcha!

I took the chance of claiming it in the post office this afternoon since it was my off.

 I love 'em all! Thank you so much Rory! That Gofun polish is really awesome!

 Homei, Mary Quant and Canmake

 See the glitter goodness?

Gofun and Chifure. She threw in a little extra for me too! I love that UNI polish! All of these are one coaters! Cant wait to swatch these babies on! Again, thank you so much Rory for these great polishes!

On other news, I picked something up from the pharmacy while shopping for toiletries.

 I love these creams! Caress still rule over this kind of colors! I also saw this beautiful lavander cream from Colortrends

Caress Satisfaction, Caress Attraction, Colortrends Cloud

I love every single polish that I got today. I just wish I had all the time in the world to wear these. I can only wear polish for only 1-2 days per week since were not allowed to wear any. I only do it every off. =(

Anyway, I'll try to swatch this as soon as I can. That's it for me today. Goodnight!
