Nails Art : Owl hoo hoo hoo #1

Sawasdee ka~

Here come another easy nails art that you can do by yourself. Few weeks ago I stumbled upon one of nails art ideas that using nails art water decal transfer stickers. I thought it is a good idea so I went through Ebay and found these cute owl stickers. One pack contains 20 nail decals in a selection of size.
Step 1: The base for these nails was Essie - Master plan (3 for 2 from Boots). I painted 2 layers and allow to thoroughly dry before applying decals.
Step 2: Cut out the decal from the strip and trim to size
Step 3: Leave the decal to soak in a bowl of water for 20-30 seconds, then remove from water
Step 4: Slide the backing away from the decal and place on the nail. Carefully move it around and smooth it down 

Step 5: Use a tissue to dab off any excess water and allow to dry.
Step 6: Use Barry M - Nail arts pen in white draw hearts on middle fingers and "love" on pinky fingers
Step 7: Paint a clear layer of topcoat over the nail to seal in the decal.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments :)

More Berry This Autumn?

 Sawasdee ka~

Today I come with a bit of a red berry theme. I have been wearing these lipsticks a lot since autumn start to say hello. I've picked out 7 lipsticks and some of them might have very similar shades with different finishes.
Sleek - Cherry // £4.99 A sheen dark red ideal for a timeless stylish looks. It's really pigmented with a creamy finish.

Topshop - The Damned // £8 A pinky- dark purple tone with velvet finish lipstick. It goes on really smooth and shiny. The colour pay off might be a bit more pink than it look.
Rimmel - Apolcalips // £6.49 A dark purple shade. Applies like a liquid but give a satin smooth shine finish. It taste nice as well...if that is relevant hahahaha
Nars - Damage // £18.50 A sheen red wine colour. It’s subtle and very natural. I like to wear it in my dry lip day as it's moisturising and the texture is quite like a balm

Illamasqua - Magnetism // £16.50 A deep raspberry lipstick. I was surprised by the formulation because most of Illamasqua lipsticks are really matte and hard to apply but this one it glides on rich and creamy leaving me feel really good. It is one of my favourite.
Topshop - Inhibition // £8 A dark plum satin matte finish. I just bought it 2 weeks ago and wore this one once so I can't give much comment on that but it's a nice colour.

Sleek - Dare // £4.99 It's actually pretty similar to Topshop - inhibition one just a bit darker and more pigmented with  matte finish.

Have you owned any of these lipsticks?

Hello December : Manchester Christmas Market

Sawasdee ka~

It's that time of the year again. The season of joy and celebration. The time to meet and greet your friends and family.  Can't believe time has gone really fast I feel like I just celebrate new year not long ago.

One thing that almost everyone in UK excited about is Christmas markets (much to my delight) that will be held in many cities across the country throughout November until before the 25th of December. Today I went to Christmas markets in Manchester for the first time and feel pretty excited (normally I go to the one in Leeds). The market take over nine different spaces around the city: Albert Square | Brazennose Street | King Street | St Ann's Square | Exchange Street | New Cathedral Street | Exchange Square | The Corn Exchange | Corporation Street

I think it's a good idea to split up the market to section so you will not get to overwhelm with too christmassy feeling. Apart from enjoy wander around each market I also have a chance to look around the city at the same time. 
First stop at Exchange street (behind Arndale shoppping centre)
Talking tree was singing a song on street (can't really remember which street it is and my face looks weird here...sorry >_<)
Gigantic father christmas on top of town hall's entrance...
Time to drink some mulled wine :)
Finally we finish all the markets. Can't believe we walk until sky has changed colour. It took us about half day to walked around and must say I'm really impressed. I love the fact that you get a French, German, European and world market all into one. It was a nice Sunday

Have you been to any Christmas market this year yet?
