Please do not mind my extra oily face.

Maybelline nail polishI know. It's like watching Grease, minus the dancing and the acting. It's just... grease as in grasa, the one you put in your hinges so it won't make that 'ngit-ngit' sound. But this post is not about my oily face but of my new nail polish.

My mother's friend got back from the States and she gave me and my mom tons of girlie stuff as pasalubong. It included this nail polish from Maybelline and well, as you can see, I tried it.

Mom said "Ano ba naman yang kulay na yan, pang pokpok!" I'm not a fan of reds because I'm a bit dark but I just gave in to the need of painting it on my nails. Then I ended up disappointed. It's like one of them nail polish magazine ads where you see the model wearing obnoxious shades of red, pink or orange and it looks so chic on them, but ends up looking disastrous for you even if you have the same skin tone with the model.

I'm a french manicure girl ever since I had my first pedicure/manicure eons ago. Recently, I discovered a shop at a mall here which does nail arts and I promised myself I'd go one of these days. It's rather stylish by the looks of the posters in the nail salon. I hope it'll look cute on my nails though. Wish me luck! :)

lei, si maika yang si anonymous. :D

i could never get vain about my fingernails. if they got too long, i would promptly cut them. if i neglected to, they'd get dirty. i could never keep clean long fingernails. i am considering getting my toes painted. haha! and to treat myself to a foot spa. sabi ko, if i wear slippers all the time, my feet should look...luscious. hah.

kubi once you start with footspas, you can't stop! LOL

you could color your hair red to match the polish. and then you can go to mom and ask "how about now?!"

Just believe in yourself and pull it off with pride. Sooner or later people will notice that any color would fit on you.

Same with kubi. Ewan ko ba, nasanay ata ako sa buhay COCC kaya laging sagad ang putol ng fingernails ko.

Yung kulay lang naman ang pang-pokpok eh, haha!
