I'm sure a lot of you already know what Konad Stamping Nail Art is already but for those who don't know, it is a nail-imprinting kit that lets you stamp different designs from image plates and onto your own nails!

I really like the Konad Stamping Nail Art as you can tell from the picture above :P
I tried to fit as many different designs at once just to see how many variation I can come up with :) Its pretty fun and addicting actually... :P
Sometimes I like to try and paint my own designs on my nails but I wouldn't be able to have the patience to paint something so intricate like some of the designs the Konad image plates offer.

I also like how you can use these stamping designs other than on your nails (ex. cell phones, sunglasses, etc).

If that didn't convince you enough, you should check out the KonADDICT blog and get some inspiration from some of the beautiful and creative designs she's come up with using the Konad Stamping Nail Art :)

Nail Polish Thinner and NOTD

I had never heard of nail polish thinner before and so I used to just add nail polish remover whenever my nail polish became thicker... :P
So I was excited when I got some Nail Polish Thinner by Beauty Secrets (I had mentioned this before in an earlier post) .

This is a mini nail polish bottle that had dried out a very long time ago...
The nail polish looks pretty gross... all clumpy and gooey...

Added some nail polish thinner to see if it could save it...

Yay!!! I couldn't believe it actually made that dried up nail polish back into the same consistency as it was before :) What a shame... I could have saved my other dried up nail polish instead of throwing them away...

And there is that same nail polish on my nails :) I didn't do a very good job at applying but its late at night and I'm tired :P
I still tried Narita's cute mini bows though :) Was pretty fun and I really liked how simple it was to do! :P Thanks Narita for your fun tutorial! :)

Maybelline Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Washable Mascara

I've been using the Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara (the same one I had talked about from my previous post) and I just wanted to show you how it worked out for my lashes:

The mascara I got was in "Very Black".
I actually like this mascara because it makes my lashes noticeably longer like it claims.
This mascara also feels quite conditioning and I like the smell for some reason.
This mascara washes off easily with warm water so smudging can be a problem.
Another thing that this mascara does not do is hold the curl very well... but other than that, I like it :)

Here are more pictures:

(No mascara, I have very short and unnoticeable lashes :( ...)

(Side view of my very sad lashes... very straight...)

(Still no mascara but its curled)

(yay! with 1 coat of Maybelling Lash Stiletto Mascara)

(2 coats of mascara... I combed it out a bit too because it was starting to get a little clumpy)

The brush has a unique has firm bristles too so be careful not to poke your eye like I did :P was a very painful experience :P

Thai Dance

I was looking through some old high school pics of mine and found these :P
definitely brought back tons of memories :P

Just wanted to share some pics of me and my friends when we learned and performed traditional Thai dance. :)
This first pic is of me and my Korean friend in our traditional Thai outfits :)
gawsh... the lady that was putting this outfit on me was making me feel so fat! haha... She was complaining how the 'skirt' almost didn't fit :P

I enjoyed throwing a few flower petals (hopefully gracefully) to the audience while dancing :)
So fun to dress up and have someone put makeup on me :P I think they did quite a good job :P
