Eros Nails For Valentine's Day

First of all I want to say thanQ to Bunny Nails for she gave me  Your Blog Award >_< It's so amazing when someone remeber U and pay personal attention! ThanQ Bunny Nails so much <3

Another thing: I'm gonna watermarking my pictures again, because I found quite a few blogs for example this one here (really can't find another ones right now). That "lady" copying not only pictures but my whole articles and posting it as her own without any without permission and links to my blog!! Thats so foolishly I think! Why do U spend ur time to post someone else's articles? Are they really enjoying it?

Anyways, February 14 here in Korea celebrate like a real Valentine's Day because this day all girls make gifts to the men they love and not vice versa! But March 14 at "White Day" all girls can get gifts from their men.

I have not decided yet what I will present to my hubby but I have some time to think about it :)

Earthlings - exploitation of animals...

I've never been an active campaigner for animal rights. I mean I'm always very sensitive to pets but that's all. Several days ago I found this video and this story doesn't leave my mind alone. Of course I'm not a professional and maybe I caught on some kind of trick, honestly I want to! Because all what I saw made me very-very sad. I know everyone earn money as they can but ...
This is Russian video but originally was made in US I guess and may be most of U already saw it but I want to share this anyways!
When I was young I had a dog, his name was King. He was very big pedigreed dog and my best friend. And like all of pet owners I was coming to the moment of parting. King was completely healthy and it was a strange parting. He was just stolen from me, and accordingly all knew for what purpose. Since then I've never had a pet I'm just too afraid to relive something that has experienced that time! How can these pathetic people can do such terrible things?

My today's manicure theme is completely devoted to interests of the animals. I wish all the animals in the world have had 9 (in my country it says 7) lives like cats, for sure for real!!!

Thus I don't make anyone to change personal views on things but we all must remember one simple thing that animals are living beings and they can feel too!

Magnet Kit For Magnetic Nail Polish

To get the amazing effect when using magnetic nail polishes we all must use specially designed magnets. And these special magnets are not included to nail polishes on KKCENTERHK but this kit is sold separately. I was very fortunate and I had a chance to get one of these kits for myself.

Code: JR1111
Price: $13.00
Available: KKCENTERHK
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
KKCENTERHK web-site says:
"This product use for Pattern Shaping on Magnetic Nail Polish
3 Pattern in one set, with a small frame and bracket,
Convenient to adjust the height of the magnet to shape pattern on nails
The distance between the magnet and nail could not exceed 5mm,
Put your nails with magnetic nail polish under the magnet for 5-15 seconds,
It could not be shaped after nail polish is dried,
Do not touch the magnet with magnetic materials,
And bank cards, credit cards could easily lead to magnetic degaussing."
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Anastacia's experience: This kit includes 3 different magnets and special holder for one finger. But I personally don't like it because the main "foundation" is unstable and falls every time. On each of the magnets has a personal picture of the magnetic image. My favourite pattern is diagonal lines because I have noticed it gives more noticeable result. Also I'm not sure if this magnet kit will be work for other magnetic nail polish brands because I have only OUQIAN.  
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The experiment with turning the magnet in the opposite direction turned out unsuccessful. And it's clearly seen on my middle finger. I tried to turn the magnet with a horizontal line at 90 degrees and achieve vertical lines pattern but the desired result wasn't  achieved.

I'm so excitied to have this magnet kit. It gives such unique nail design in seconds.
Here is my 2 cents in a large piggy bank but the most important thing that everyone can make a personal consequences for themselves on how much need this accessory or not.

Black Magnetic Nail Polish

I'm so sooo exciting about new trend (oh, at least new for me) of magnetic nail polishes. It always looked 3D and unique to me so finally I had a chance to try out some on myself :) 

OUQIAN Black magnetic nail polish #007
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Code: OUQIAN-MGT-007
Price: $12.00
Net: 12ml
Available: KKCENTERHK
Image and video hosting by TinyPicImage and video hosting by TinyPic
This nail polish has a little bit of shimmer to it and wearable just by itself without any magnetic effects. Not very black shade tho, it looks more dark grey metallic color. It has regular nail polish brush and quite dense texture. One coat of nail polish looks opaque enough. 
It's pretty easy to use: apply one coat of the nail polish wait untill it completely dry. Apply second coat and put the nails under magnet for about 5-15 seconds depending on how dramatic the result desired. For example: my index finger I kept under magnet for about 15 secs and the middle finger something about 5 secs. The longer time under magnets, the more dramatic result will be achieved. The only thing that magnets doesn't included to this nail polishes, it sold separately! I will be doing a review for them too.
To remove them I used just my regular nail polish remover.
TIP: shake before use very-very well because all the metallic pieces settle on the bottom of the nail polish.

Have U tried any magnetic nail polishes? Which colors do U like more?

Nail Foils Haul

This is just a quick update for my new stuff I bought recently :) I ordered some nail foils from Dollar Nail Art store and I like everything I got. All those foils are sooo beautiful! I accidentally bought 2 of Peacock Dazzle but I think it's ok cause I played with it today and it looked sooo pretty and glossy. Each item costs $1, how cool huh? But the minimum order is $25 + shipping fee. I also really like the servise and it's very serious web-site.

I also bought some round and square studs each $1 as well.

K M O Cuticle Revitalizer Oil *Rose Oil*

It's so cold here in Korea in the past few days and my skin feels and looks very dry right now. Oh!.. my poor hands! They are already over dry and if I don't moisturize them 3-4 times a day the skin looks very old kinda :( So I do for my cuticles. I need them look moisturize and well-groomed. Best suitable cuticle moisturizer for use during the day for me is K.M.O Cuticle Revitalizer Oil. And this is my second tube and it absolutely great for use in the daytime because of the non greasy texture and it still moisturizing really nice. But for the night time I prefer cuticle balm which is much heavy in texture.

This unique natural revitalizing complex blend of peach extract, mango extract, calcium, safflower oil and vitamins to nourish moisturize and protect the cuticles and nails. Panthenol (Vitamins B-5) penetrate the nail surface and carry calcium vitamins and nutrients to the nail matrix. This patented carrying complex is a sure way to get these important ingredients and nutrients directly to the nail matrix.

Code: K.M.O-Rose Oil
Price: $9.48
Avaiable: KKCENTERHK

Usage: Brush on your cuticle lightly and massage gently 3-4 times a week. You will achive longer, stringer and beautiful natural nails.
Ingredients: Grapeseed Oil, Amino Acids, BHA, Natural Keratin, Organic Calcium, Sunflower Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Sesame Oil, Vitamin B-5, Vitamin E, Silk Procaine, Natural Pan phenol, Thymol, Methyl Glucose Ether.

Anastacia's experience: I've tried Orange and Rose oils so far and both of them has the same ingredients and texture, obviously they work the same. It's sort of dry oil because it hasn't any greasy feeling after absorbing into the skin. But at the same time it moisturizing my cuticles very good. Soft bristles of the brush make easier application of the oil to cuticles and under free edge of nails. It smells "rosy" (not harsh tho) and I like it. Even if it red jelly in color when apply it looks clear on the cuticles. Absorbed very quick without oil film as it do most other cuticle oils. I only wish the tube was larger size because it small and honestly I can finish it in a few days (I don't follow the instructions and use it every day). But! my nails and cuticles feel very good now and I want spring come a bit faster than soon LOL~

Pedicure For Valentine's Day

As promised I'm gonna do quite a few nail designs for Valentine's Day. And as real nail art addict I love painting my toes too :) I improve and improve my toe nails all the time! I remember only last year they looked  awful because I had "grow-in" nail edges since school time, and I made them grow right! It was hard and very painfully but I think now my toes deserve a beautiful pedicure too :)

I was sent this toe nail patches from KKCENTERHK and I used them for this toe design. I have tried quite a lot of different nail patches and non of them looked useful for me untill I tried this N.Nail patches. The main factor that contributed to such excellent application is this patches are very thin! When I opened them at first I thought that was water decals, that's how thin they are! Also the glue side is very sticky as well and filing off the excess patch was like nothing. Very easy to use and I wish I could try this N.Nail patches for my finger nails too >_<
The best patches so far!

My toes doesn't look dramatic but it kinda creative, huh? I love this stickers >_<

Rainbow Holes

I want to start this post with thanking Mini for the Cute Blog Award. I already have did this tag before [HERE] and I'm so happy to get it from such talented nail art guru like her. Mini's nail designs are in Japanese nail art magazines and absolutely all of them are amazing! So unique and creative! >_<
Talking about lovely girls I want to mention Angeline's nail polish blog. She recently started new blog and there is a nail polish paradise. So many different brands and colors, a lot of interesting nail art things! And Angie just such sweet and friendly person :)
I'm so happy to have friends like U girls! It's so amazing to share our common interests with each other!

I've changed my manicure today for this neon colors :) I did pretty the same design for the 31 days nail challenge and it was inspired by the Artwork look [HERE] and today I wanted to play with more bright colors. Using the same sponging method. I applied neon yellow, pink, green and a little bit of royal blue on the sponge and made my general background rainbow pattern. And with detail nail art brush and black acrylic paint I drawn sort of holes. Sealed everything with a clear top coat and done.

A few days ago I bought another PERIPERA nail polish in "PEARL WHITE" from their scented collection. I applied 2 layers without top coat. This polish was the main base color for my today's mani. Very nice smell and amazing wide brush. The texture is a bit runny for this particular polish but 2 coats quite enough for opaque application. This is not basic pearl white, to me it looks more like ivory color IRL. It doesn't make my skin tone darker at all, love this new baby >_<
***I buy this nail polish brand in my local store and for international readers I suggest to check out Ebay.***

Nail Polishing Mania

Happy Lunar New Year :) It was difficult few days for me to prepare for the New Year tableful but I think we made it :) Also I made my nail design for this holidays but I didn't wanted go crazy and crafty because of all the homework. So I polished my nails simple and I got a ton of compliments for this design :)
"CLASSIC CAFE" Aritaum nail polish. Brown shade with bronzy shimmer to it. Nice and opaque color. 2 layers on with abstract stickers and silver hexagones. And 2 layers of clear top coat.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
"RASPBERRY TEA" another Aritaum nail polish from their new Cafe collection. It smells very sweet and it only 1 layer without top coat. It's very opaque creme nail polish with great texture. I love Aritaum polishes and got a lot of questions about this brand here and there especially on my Flickr page. Aritaum is Korean brand nail polish and personally I buy them from my local beauty store and I really don't know where it sales internationally. May be U should check out Ebay...

I'm into pink recently and I buy a lot of different pink nail polishes. And one of them is The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex BASE COAT. I thought it's sort of sheer pink for french mani but when I got home and read the lable it was basic base coat. But thats ok, cause I use such necessary products constantly. Even if it's pink shade it looks clear on the nails.

BK Cracking nail polish #8. It was requested on my Facebook page. For the main background color I used yellow creme polish in YL702 from TFS.

Thats all for my random nail pictures :)

♥BE MY VALENTINE♥

So into pink nail polishes right now LOL~ Recently I bought a ton of different pink nail polishes and one of them I used for today's mani. It's from The Face Shop Lovely Me:ex collection in PK105. Which is creme pink color, very nice and opaque nail polish. I'm wearing only one coat of this for my french tips and it's absolutely enough for amazing yet even application. 
But right now I want to share not my new nail polish baby but the craft nail decoration set I've got from Born Pretty store the other day :)
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Item ID: 1660
Price: $15.44
Available: Born Pretty Store
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It's 12 different nail decorations with this see through plastic box. It sounds a bit expensive for just the decorations but in my opinion it's totally worth it. Because if U apply and remove them carefully it may be used again and again! (also U can use my coupon code PAJ61 for 10% OFF) All the decorations have flat back and can be used for both:  for artificial nails and for natural nails as well. To stick on these decorations I like to use thick/old clear nail polish and seal it with 2 layers of top coat. So it stays nice and well.
I just so love this cute and original things on my nails >_<

Here I took picture of my favourite pieces :) But I think each of them has an individual twist!

For this manicure I did pink french tips by using french tip guide stickers. Contour the smile line with silver art pen nail polish, added pink rhinestones and the rose on accent nail. Done!
This was my first inspiring mani for the Valentine's Day but I'm gonna to do quite a few more very soon :)
