These Nails Were Made for Wearing

As I’m new to WordPress I was browsing the homepage and was interested by the Daily Prompt, given below:

I love English and writing too, but since this is a nail post I’ll talk about one of my favourite manicures.


Dashing Diva Color FX, Not Really A Sin

My best friend came to visit me in Manila about a month ago as her graduation present. She used to live here too, but moved to Mexico and then Sri Lanka 3 and a half years ago.

When she was here we went and had our nails done at Dashing Diva in Powerplant Mall. I’ve been eyeing these Color FX nails for a few months now and thought that this would be the perfect time to try them.

I’ve tried nail stickers by OPI and Sally Hansen before, so I thought that this would be the same. Sally Hansen and OPI use real nail polish in strips, and it can be removed using acetone. This however was entirely different! The strip of pink is actually plastic-y, like the kind of material used for wall decals. It can easily be peeled off and reapplied in case of mistakes. Here is the link to the Dashing Diva site where they feature ColorFX:

Feeling Neon!

So for my first post I thought that I’d show you my current nails and what I used to do them:


August 24 Nails of the Day. Not yet properly cleaned, in natural light.

Decided to play around with my birthday gifts and have a tribaly-summery-vibe. (Click read more)

Hey guys!

Whether you’ve stumbled here accidentally, or are looking for nailspiration, I’d just like to say welcome to my blog. I’m an 18-year old aspiring Economist, who spends too much time on my nails.


I change my nail colours/design almost every day and have built up quite a collection. I started this blog because I decided that I want to share them with you (also because it’s summer and I’m incredibly bored). So from day to day I will post pictures of my nails. Some that I did months ago, some that are new. Don’t be too harsh, I’m not professional in any way and this is simply for fun!

I love doing my nails because they’re my own portable canvas. Doing them de-stresses me, and it’s fun.

Nails have taught me to be bold in life: nothing is permanent, just as my nails grow it follows that life is a journey that stops for no one.

They’ve taught me to be assertive, as uncertain strokes make the polish clumpy. They’ve taught me to be confident, and show off bright colours. They’ve taught me to be patient, and let them grow before cutting them off. They’ve taught me to not let others judge you for what you enjoy doing.

Most importantly, they’ve taught me to love and do what you love.

I hope that you enjoy seeing my joy 🙂
