"Passionate" and "Shy" Describe My Nails Today

I was curious so I got one of those color changing nail polish from the "Mood Swing" collection by icing.

I got the Mood Swing nail polish in the color: Passionate/Shy

Hmm... I don't really notice a change in color... yet. Did I do it wrong?

I liked how "mood" nail polishes made some of you guy's nails create a gradient effect.
But then again, my fingers are feeling a bit cold at the moment. O_o

This polish's finish is matte (something I did not expect); Not that it bothers me but I decided to brush a couple of layers of top coat (same one I used in here) over it anyway.

Maybe I will experiment with this later. :p

You own any of these polishes? Which colors? :p Do they work for you?

I Like New Toys

This is one of the exciting things I got on my birthday:

A Square Perfect SP500 Platinum Photo Studio!!!!
Everything was tucked in so neatly inside this huge zippered case!
This whole kit includes:
  • 2 Photo Tents 
    • (one in size 12 x 12" x 12") <-- great for quick and small items :3
    • (one in size 30 x 30" x 30") <-- HUGE!!!
  •  4 backgrounds (Black, Red, Blue, White) for each of the Photo Tents (8 total)
  • 2 lights (with stands)
  • 1 Tripod for camera
Hehehe... The smaller tent all set up. (I think I might have put the front photo-tent flap the wrong way though -__-;)
I don't think the tripod that comes in this set works too well for the smaller photo tent so I use my GorillaPod ;)


Haha, I can see why I got this gift though because look at my old "photo studio" setup; I made it using cardboard, tissue-paper and lots of tape:
Hahaha! Kind of pathetic huh! I was using my room lights and desk lamp as lighting. :P It still worked though. The old "photo tent" was just a bit bulky because it doesn't fold up as fancy as the new one I got. :)
(Just in case you were wondering, that item I was taking a picture of was for my ebay store)

How does your photo setup look like?
What kind of equipment/accessories do you use when taking your pictures? :)

Hollow Mask from Bleach (Ichigo) Makeup

My inner hollow peaking through...

I increased the contrast, blurred the edges and colored my right eye yellow (those creepy yellow contacts would have been useful to use right here :P).

I used this picture of Ichigo (from Bleach anime):

and also inspiration from iChuyy. She made me want to try it. :p

Do you guys watch Bleach? :P I watched it until it got a little too long hahaha! :P

Organic Veggie

Hehehe.. This is my mom's pepper :P I thought it was so cute.
I love how my mom has such a green thumb! She's also growing cucumbers, tomatoes and eggplant.

As for me, I am not as interested in gardening as much as my mom. :P

You guys do any gardening at all? :p

Crafts: DIY Bow for Gifts/Presents/Wrapping Using Magazine Paper

Whenever I want to relax and calm my mind from stress, I turn to crafting. Lately, we have been celebrating quite a few birthday parties this summer and sometimes we run out of bows whenever we wrap gifts. I'm so glad I learned how to make my own from Jessica Jone's blog, How About Orange (her tutorial: here).
They're so addicting!

I think that the magazine paper really adds a unique touch.

Maybe I will experiment using other types of paper as well. :3

What do you think?
Would you mind if your gifts were decorated with bows made out of magazine paper? :p
