"Treasures of the Orient"

So my friend from work, Alicia, came over to my house to get some nail art done and she had this idea for the tackiest nails she could think of...with an asian twist. Yes we are both asian, so I helped with a couple of ideas, but she was all over it. "Sushi! Bubble tea! Fortune cookie!..." Funnily enought, most of the ideas ended up being food related. Aw well. So I present to you her "Treasure of the Orient" nails (click on pics to enlarge):

Top hand (left to right)-pinkie: take out food box, ring: noodle bowl with chopsticks, middle: sushi, pointer: fortune cookie.

Bottom hand (left to right)-pointer: pochocco, middle: 2 grains of rice, ring: kikkoman soy sauce package, pinky: strawberry pocky sticks

left: bubble tea, right: school girl

This idea was not meant to be offensive, obviously. We're asian and these are all the things we love about our cultures...only on nails. Hope you enjoyed :)

It Doesn't Get Any Matter Than This!

Hi all!

So today I have something awesome for you! Dear Michèle was so kind to order me a few bottles of ManGlaze as well when she placed her order <3 so I have my first ManGlaze to share with you today! Curious? I thought so! On to the pics..

ManGlaze Matte is Murder, two coats in daylight. This is the best matte black ever! It doesn't get any more matte than this.. Most dark mattes are more of a charcoal or grey color, but this one really is super matte black. This is only two coats and they went on really smoothly without dragging or leaving bald spots.

You know me well enough to know that I can't go by any matte polish without putting some topcoat on it..

ManGlaze Matte is Murder with one coat of Nubar Diamont. Look at it! Isn't this gorgeous? Matte is Murder has a very pretty shimmer in it that makes it also interesting to look at when it's glossy.

See what I mean? This rocks!

This is the best matte polish that I ever tried and I like this even better than my Orly Iron Butterfly - which is definitely in my top 3 polishes. It's super duper matte and very easy to work with so I can't do anything else than love this..

ManGlaze can be purchased at and they also ship outside the US!

Thanks for stopping by!
