Camel Whoa

    Today, I managed to snag my major nail polish lemmings- China Glaze Classic Camel and China Glaze Ingrid! :) (I decided to grab Swing Baby as well. I love the Vintage Vixen collection!! Today in Vegas it feels disgusting. I know that I shouldn't complain, but after living in the desert for 2.5 years, 41% humidity is HELL. (on top of the 100°+ temperatures. It makes me think of the days in Michigan where you step out of the shower, and then feel like you have to shower all over again. Humidity is the devil, and the devil is in Las Vegas. I did another relatively simple design today, since a few people expressed that they dug the simpler stuff. I think it sort of has a vintage feel to it as well, so I think it fits with the color collection I used. :) BTW Class Camel was so totally worth the wait. I am in love with this polish, even though it looks horrid with my skin. :-P

    I used China Glaze Classic Camel as a base, China Glaze Ingrid for the scrolls, China Glaze Swing Baby for the dots. Topped it off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Retro Zig Zaggin'

    Today's nail design was quick, I'll admit it, I'm in a rush today- lots to do- Colin Hay concert tonight! woo! The design was inspired by the paint job I saw on the side of a building in southern California, I just thought that it had a really retro vibe to it, which, of course, I love. I also got to use a new polish I picked up from Milani- they have a new collection of nudes out now!! :)

    I used Milani Teddy Bare (which is pretty close to Essie Mink Muffs) as a base, with American Apparel Cotton for the ivory line, and Zoya Jancyn for the orange line.

    Sorry for the lack of complexity today, I feel kinda guilty when I don't do crazy stuff. :-P

Grease is the Word

Do you believe? Would you?

    Girlies who's been reading me since one year ago might know that i have a thing for Tarot reading. Or to be exact, any form of reading, fortune-telling etc. You know, things like that.

    I even got an Angel Deck for myself as a birthday present last year. I am not going to tell you to believe if it works, or if it doesn't, if it's accurate or if it's not. I am just gonna talk about this as my own experience.

    IT WORKS and IT IS ACCURATE. Hahahaha! Yeah, i just tried to pull you into the magical world of believing.

    It's a bit weird to digress like this, but do you believe in spirits? Ghost? God (in any form, kind, colour)? Demons? UFO? Anything supernatural or unbelievably out-of-the-norm? Don't talk about disgusting girls who sleeps for money and then pretend like her life is normal. But that to me, is also super out-of-the-norm.

    Anyway, do you believe?

    I did a Tarot reading with this lady. She's very mysterious and exclusive so i can't really tell you much about her but what i'm impressed with are the readings she provided me with.

    It was a email reading, followed by a phone consultation sort of thing. It's mainly to let me clear my head with all the questions after going through the email reading. All i had to provide her was my Full name, Age, Birthdate and optional but recommended, a picture of me.

    I didn't send a mega chio one lah okay, i wanted to show her my truest to real image. If not scully come out the reading say, "You should be in Korea. What are you doing blogging here, Song Hye Gyo?"

    If that happens, i'd just be honest and tell her, I AM NOT SONG HYE GYO. I am her sister, Song Hye Chio.. Errr... Yah. Okay okay, this was what i sent her.

    And i told her i am the prettier one. Haha!

    So i asked about doing all this stuff. Blogging, appearing on an online show and part-time modelling.

    Together with the nature of my question and what information / guidance / advice i am keen to receive on, she will draw five cards for me,

    The Present situation
    The Present expectation
    What is not expected
    The Immediate Future
    Long Term Future

    I am going to share with you part of the readings. Not gonna put the whole 3 page long of super detailed reading she provided me with, but just some of it that people who know me might be able to relate to. And no, my reading wasn't favorable but sigh.. Never mind, just read.

    I am not going to disclose the exact card thou. And the words in pink are of my own.

    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

    Present Situation:
    Your career currently is feeling very dragged out. Often you are asked to wait without any concrete future that it provides. But you have been getting positive results in this career from your hard work that you have put in.
    If results = Money, that'd solve my problems.

    Present expectations:
    You expect everyone to look in your career choice in an understanding light; you want to have others express their support for your choice in career. It may seem childish to others that you are so heavily reliant on this working, but this is something that only you know. Only you know what brings you comfort in your heart.
    What brings me comfort is being able-bodied and healthy, happy sitting here, doing nothing much, and just writing whatever comes to my mind, and still having people reading it like i am serious. Haha.

    What is not expected
    You never expected consolidation, the strong solid structure of your career to finally be in reach. You are in a special stage of your life this is the final lap where in which after completing is time for your wishes to come true. Treasure this moment for you will never know when it will come by again.
    When my wishes are done, i will have new wishes. And i won't share my wishes, for then, they won't come true.

    You will have an excellent social life, meeting new people at fun gatherings. You will be popular amongst the new friends that you meet. They will find you genuinely engaging. These relationships that you build will be very fulfilling contrary to what you think.
    Random, i met Liu Qian the magician yesterday and he say i got a bursting personality. Do you think i can build a relationship with him and make him my friend for life?! LOL!!! Anyway, yeah, it's been all the really nice people i met the last two months. From blogging, from Budget Barbie.. So many people i have met but yet a chance to know!

    Immediate Future: Death Card
    Death is not a bad card. This card is highly misunderstood, so do not panic as you are reading this.
    Okay, trying.

    In the immediate future, you are up for a lot of change in your life, this change you might not take good will into but it is for the best. This change would be very sudden taking you by storm.

    You may find this change very harsh but this is the type of change where is it unavoidable, so acceptance is advised instead of clinging on to old ways. Of not wanting to work hard for money, and not wanting to work for real.
     I am leaving you guys.

    There will be a painful ending to what you see as your career now, but in place there will be something better for you. Do not fear this change, you would have to go along with it, or you will be in prolonged suffering.
    Again, i am leaving you guys. So that i won't be in prolonged suffering! All your fault!!!

    Long Term Future:
    In the future, there would always be a dead end struggle to preserve the path that you are in. How do you do this? You would lead a very thrifty life, in this case, this career does not provide much money in the long term future.
    This i already figured out. Just couldn't get my big, fat, saggy ass up to work on something else.

    The future does not look too bright for you if you were to continue in this career, but from the present cards, I can tell that you are extremely protective of the idea of this career working out. Walk out the path that you are planning to, there is nothing wrong, the cards are just warning you of being receptive to change, as changes are going to be happening in the immediate future.

    This career, in the long term future will cause you to be a miser, stingy in giving out
    emotions to others, caring for others. This is another downfall where you must turn your
    attention towards.

    _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

    I believe in everything read. It's me, but it also makes sense. And don't worry hor, if you are worried for any of the following reasons.

    1) I would stop blogging and you will thus be miserable.
    2) I will end up blogging for your happiness and have myself in prolonged suffering.
    3) I will go be a social escort in order to continue blogging when guys are not doing me. Which most probably will be the case since i haven't got anything stuffed into my chest yet.

     So don't worry, i am just gonna see if there's anything i could do to keep myself more meaningfully occupied. Cox anyway, after the email reading..

    The lady did a phone reading with me. After i cleared my questions on the email reading, i asked her about the next line i'm gonna be in.

    Says it's gonna be GREAT. HAHAHAHAHA. So just when you were hoping to see me die in misery, TA DANG~ I'm somewhat still alive in optimism! Hahaha! I am a survivor!!! FIGHTING!

    And the next question was, is there any nature of job that is advisable for me.

    Here is where you get involved.

    ARTS - A line that will fulfill me emotionally
    Makeup? Photojournalism?

    Corporate ladder - A line that will provide me with much wealth
    Desk job.. Which line?

    TEACHING related - A line that will fulfill me spiritually
    Tuition? Childcare centre assistant?
    This is what the lady encouraged. But i don't wanna worry the parents! Look at me?!

    Okay i'm gonna stop here. All i feel was, this girl is scarily zhun. And she's very wise at giving sensible advice too. So if any of you guys here are keen, this is her email and website.

    Charges are as following for email reading
    One card reading - $7
    Three card reading - $13
    Each card following - $4

    Charges for phone reading
    One card reading - $11
    Three card reading - $29
    Each card following - $10

    I am not paid for this. So just believe what you deem fit.

We're Gonna Rouge Our Knees

    and roll our stockings down...

    I have yet to come across a musical that I DIDN'T like, and CHICAGO is no exception. I LOVE this musical. I love the movie version, and though I've only experienced the soundtrack of the stage version, I adore that too! I love the glamour of it all, the sex, the crime, the Richard Gere?! :-P Anyway, today's nails were inspired by all that jazz...

    The 'glow' is far more subtle in person, but the camera really seemed to pick it up.

    I used American Apparel Hassid as a base, with the orangey red from the Color Club Yacht Club collection for the glow of the neon letters, mixed with a little American Apparel Hassid to try to fade out the glow a bit, and with Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud to create the glowing neon of the middle C. For the black of the other letters, I used American Apparel Hassid.

    So who's your favorite Velma? Bebe Neuwirth? Catherine Zeta Jones? Someone else? Are you more of a Roxie Hart fan? Maybe Mama? Billy? *rawr*

Atomic Wedgwood

    I've always been a fan of all things retro in the art world, and the plates that today's nail art was inspired by are no exception! I love the atomic era art style, so when my friend Chris showed me his plates and suggested they'd make great nail art, I completely agreed. So, I palmed a plate, and headed to my nail art desk, and got to work!

    The inspiration:

    The Nails:

    I used Sally Hansen Professional Lavender Cloud as a base, with a mixture of Essie Mink Muffs and American Apparel California Trooper for the beige, Orly Gumdrop for the turquoise, Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Spring Green for the green, and MAC Showy for the dark brown line work. Topped everything off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

Just Push Play

    So, since I've been feeling pretty under the weather for the last few days, I've become very acquainted with the TV remote. I seem to have caught some sort of bug. *bleck* Anyway. There are a few things I make myself get out of bed/get off the couch for- and this is one!! :) (Groceries is another) Anyway, today's nails were inspired by my buddy, the remote, the clicker, the changer, your children, whatever you call the little thing that allows you to channel surf. :-P

    I used American Apparel Factory Grey as a base with American Apparel Cotton for the symbols. For the red of the record 'button', I used Nubar Sexy Red. Topped it all off with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat.

    Did you know the Travel Channel has wicked awesome shows? I'm totally addicted. between that, Discovery, History, and ID, I'm totally hypnotized. In addition, can I say I am loving Anthony Bourdain?

There're reasons why my nail-dos are sponsored..

    From now on, yes. I AM! HAHAHAHA! I'm telling you now, WHY, i deserve everything good. And now one of the thing that i am proud to say i have, is a sponsorship from Milly's. WHAHAHAHAHA. DIGGIT!!!


    This, is what i do at home with CCs, NiaoNiao and my sisters.
    None of them cost more than $2 each. They are mostly $1 each.

    Even now that i am sponsored to do my nails, i would still do nails for people if they don't hiam. Haha. But i won't be doing my nails anymore~ But i'd still be involved in the mission of making sure nobody, NOBODY goes without nail vanish. Okay. LOL. Guys, can do black, grey or clear at least!!! So no excuses! EVERYBODY!

    TWO: I put effort in my entries

    This is part of what i blogged for Milly's the last time.

    If i am gonna be the only girl who appears on
    without Chio Bling Bling nails, i'd rather die.

    KayKay's super chio blinged nails.

    Xiaxue's ultra blinged nails.
    Okay i think she might have did this herself.

    But point it, nobody goes on the show with ugly nails!
    And i had the audacity to go film Budget Barbie Episode 1 with my DIY nails, with two blings fallen out. Lol, that's the true spirit of budget.

    BUT!!! Now I have Milly's Nail to back me up!
    Chio not! All done at Milly's
    I am gonna be less a loser like this!!! YAY!

    We the Milly's Girl, pledge ourselves as one united blogger.
    Regardless of readership, language or host,
    so as to acheive, chioness, happiness and prosperity for our blogsphere.

    We are Milly's girl, We are Milly's Girl~
    We will stand together to do our nails~

    No, not really, we will sit back and enjoy the great service at Milly's.
