Gradient Glitter Nail Tutorial

I really love the color of Nicole by OPI's Shell Me The Truth, but smething about it never sat well on my nails. To solve it, I put a layer (or two) of the OPI Teenage Dream, and voila! I really love how it loks on my nails now.

Times Square, New York

I recently went on a trip to New York with my parents. I also had a few friends who happened to be in the city, so we decided to hang out. Most of our nights were spent at Times Square, since it is definitely a must-see at night.

Right after the visit to the Statue of Liberty (click here to view the blog entry on that), my friend Marga and I embarked the boat that brought us to Ellis Island. It's about a 5-minute ride from Lady Liberty.

OPI My Address Is Hollywood Swatches and Review

I had a foam party the other day and put my outfit together at the last minute. I guess you could say that my nail polish choice of the day was what made me wear my matching pink shorts for that night. It matched so well!

Statue of Liberty Cruise

One of my sister's best friends came to visit The City while I was on vacation, and she asked to spend the day with me. I hadn't seen the Statue of Liberty yet, so we took the Subway down to Battery Park together.

Dinner at Home

I always feel like people tease me when I talk about my cooking or even dreaming of being a housewife in general, so every now and then I like to bring out the big guns and cook a feast for people. Hehehe
