Etude House: Juicy Cocktail gradation nails

I've always wanted to try gradation nails, so I was ecstatic that these babies finally went on sale at Etude House!!

The set comes in 3 mini colours, which I love because personally I find that most nail polishes come in bottles that are way too big. I've never had the chance to finish up my nail polish before the damn thing hardens up.

Not too hard to understand even though it looks like greek to me.

Erm... the colours are rather different from the display picture promised on the packaging, but I love it nonetheless!! I've used two coats for the base , single layer coating for the medium purple glitter, and double, maybe triple on some nails for the deep purple.

I think the fun part about gradation nails is to just have fun and play with different coats of colours and just layer ém on! This was super simple do to and I was done in about 30mins :D

HOLI 2013

Holi is known as the festival of colour to celebrate the start of spring observed by the Hindus. Now, it has become a multicultural event and on every photographer's must-list. During this festival, coloured powder is thrown, smeared, even mixed with water into big-ass water guns and sprayed onto the attendees.  Attendees then go around wish each other with "HAPPY HOLI!".

I went to this year's Holi at Shree Lakshmi Narayan Mandir at Kuala Lumpur. What a sight we were greeted with! 

In case you couldn't tell, I'm the girl in the blue cap underneath the helpfully drawn mask of colours in the pictures above.

And oddly enough, I went there with gold painted nails but came back with green nails as a result of all the coloured powder. 


But its still rather pretty! 

Do join the festive next year round! Its definitely an experience to remember.
