Oh its Monday again!
How is everyone going? How was your weekend?
I spent most of my weekend rearranging the furniture in my house and also furniture shopping
Japanese people like to change their furniture or things [like cutlery, plates etc] with the change of season and we are no exception. ^^
Thankfully today’s post isnt about furniture..instead I wanted to share my fave new nail polish with you guys!
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Nail polish
Price:i cant remember the ridiculous price i paid. lets just say Sally Hansen costs several times more outside of USA/Canada.
The color i bought – 04 petal pusher
True to its name..this nail polish dries really quickly!
Which is nice when the color is a light one..such as this
It took me less than 15mins to put on 3 coats!! If you can find this for a good price, i highly reccomend it ^^
The top coat is this gorgeous Glossy Gel top coat from ParaDo!
I know the crappy photo doesnt show it but this gives a gorgeous shiny top coat as if you had gel nails done! It forms a thick layer of gel top coat and you dont need to use UV light to set it. As a matter of fact, it dries really quickly too!
FYI, ParaDo is sold exclusively in most 7-11 convenience stores [conbinis] in Japan.
Speaking of convenience stores. [conbinis]..regular readers will know i tend to buy a lot of junk from them. its not my fault..there are around 4 different conbinis on my way home XD
Lawson [conbini] is having a sweets promotion of sorts. Buy two types of specially marked candy snacks [there’s a whole bunch to choose from] and get a free Yebypawka[Cheburashka] folder! There are 5 folder designs to choose from.
FYI, Yebypawka[Cheburashka] is a classic Russian children’s Cartoon that is rather popular in Japan for its cute designs.
Many conbinis also have certain events called “fairs” whereby you can buy a lottery ticket to win an instant price. I’m pretty sure you always win something XD Each ticket is 500yen [usd$6]
Not conbini related but in celebration of Gloomy Bear’s 10th year anniversary and Capybara’s 5th year anniversary. Namjatown in ikebukurou was having a sweets fair for them [hence the toys made above for lawson..sweets fair.get it?]
The fair ended last week.
I dont join these lotteries often. Mostly because the fair doesnt last very long and by the time i go, its probably over XD However a while back [a month ago?] .i did buy a lottery ticket for the Doremon Fair. This is what i won
Its quite bulky for a keychain or phone strap XD But it makes a lovely display in my kitchen with its colors.
I go to the conbini a lot lately cos i have been going there to pay my utilities bills XD This is because i didnt move long ago and the direct debit hasnt been set up yet. This is mildly dangerous cos i end up buying other junk whilst there XD
And lastly..since we are talking about hair accessories..i changed my twitter display pic recently and many asked what the thing in my hair was. Its this giant red flower XD
As you can see from its condition..its kinda old now XD But it remains one of my faves! Its quite big! The flower part is bigger than the palm of my hand XD
For those wondering..i didnt fly on the weekend XD I know i said last week i was supposed to go Singapore for a week but as usual..work is unpredictable and i didnt end up going. I should probably end up going there end of this month..start of next. ^^
Hope everyone has a great week ahead!
p.s my twitter seems to be acting up cos i lost a lot of follower’s requests recently. ie i get the alert email but when i go to twitter i dont see any requests. So if you sent one, please send it again..and erm let me know you sent it XD Thanks!!
