Hi guys, it has been a while since my last update.. I've been busy this past month. I celebrated my birthday in hong kong last November together with my relatives. And this month is the 3rd periodical exam of my son Jaem before their Christmas break..
Anyway.. Last week, I received a package from BORNPRETTY..

12Pcs/Box Nail Art Decoration Wheel Dazzling Opal Crystal Design (Random Pattern) $12.23 usd

First, I tried the QA88 nail art image plate, I really like the paisley design. I have no problem taking the design from the plate because of the clear and smooth engrave. I used some of the studs that I also received for the ornamentation. I really love them... :)
The clean up brush has good bristles that you can also use for onestroke..

 Here is how I clean my cuticle using the clean up brush.
You have to dip the nail art brush in acetone, and swipe the thin brush over the cuticle area to remove any nail polish and provide a clean and professional-looking finish for home manicures.

Caronia "Blue Moon Collection" (swatches and nail art)

Hi Guys,
Last week I received a new "BLUE MOON" caronia collection with a blue shawl included in the package!
( perfect for cold weather ) I wasn't able to post it because of my busy sched... I really love the collection eventhough I'm not a fan of frosted nail polish, this one is perfect.. The color is perfect for my skin complexion.. 

Here's what I recieved..
Caronia nail polish is a non toxic "big 3 free polish"
No Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, and Formaldehyde...

CHASSE - regular navy blue polish, the formula was good, 2 coats and its done.. Application is nice.. so easy to use..

AVANT - it's kind of a seagreen or darkgreen in color, very glossy with micro glitz i love it.. Good coverage with just 2 coats of application..
BOURREE - really suits my complexion.. love the color, metallic orangered. this color needs 2 coats of application.. Love it!

I added some stamp using pueen "encore" image plate.. I used seche vite for top coat! Hope you like them!!
Have a nice day!! Happy weekend everyone!!!

Conclusion: 4/5

On my nails, I put different sizes of blue rhinestones.

I really like it because before when I use a plastic pallet, the color remains and it's a bit messy. With this stainless holder, you can push the acrylic when it dries, or you can wash directly on the faucet...
One more thing, I used it also for swatching stamp It is very helpful because I have lots of plastic pallet and once I use and forget to clean them, they become messy. This stainless pallet is very handy..
