I usually have painted nails. I'm obsessed with painting my nails and I paint my nails a different color every week just because it feels good to me! In the '80s, long pointy nails rocked, and in the '90s, long rounded nails were styling. This season, short red nails are red hot!



What about you? Are your nails usually covered with nail varnish, or do you leave them bare? Like dressing, your nails too speak aloud of your inner personality and mood. So don't forget to take care of your nails. It is not just a style quotient! Nails are perhaps the most seen part of your body. So they have to be kept clean and beautiful while firm as well.

I am sure you have heard of Nails Inc, the world's largest nail bar chain offering quick, affordable, high-quality, branded nail services. Yes, Nails Inc provides a wide range of products that enables you to decorate your nails in different shades, maintain your hands and feet in a proper condition, as well as pamper them in the comfort of your own home. Also, all their high quality range of nail polish and nail care products are available on their website! Don't forget, nail care isn't exclusive to the hands - your feet need pampering too!

I'm currently obsessed with all things trendy and British; bonus points if they're beauty-related. Check out these ten gorgeous limited edition shades which come with a must-have charm each!


Aren't they adorable? Sigh. I LOVE THEM ALL!

The collection comprises five best-selling colors, each named after a London hot spot, plus five brand new hues for SS09. Charms for the London set reflect the brand's British heritage (think black cab, the Crown Jewels and a Union Jack) and the spring/summer shades have a holiday theme (look out for an ice lolly, polka dot bikini and bucket and spade). So whether you're a Shoreditch chick (that's the bright pink polish) or more of a Park Lane princess (that's the purple for you), there's a color that's right up your street. So, which shade do you like best?

Oh, by the way, my brother went on vacation to the UK, Italy and France and of all the things in the world; he bought me that giant strawberry flavored lollipop (pictured above)! Smileys What a lovely brother! Smileys

Syura does her nails ALL the friggin' time. That day, she painted her nails in the morning, and at night it was already a different color. She said, her mood changed.. so she had to change the color!! She has great bubblegummy colors too! So cute! :) But since my skin is darker than hers, i seldom paint mine. Allie has hers done all the time. Now it's blue, like the one in the picture! :)

unfortunately i don't have beautiful hands. they look old and wrinkled. my nails would look uglier if i've them painted.

levian said... @ 5/11/09 8:01 AM

i love to have them colorful as well!
but i don't paint my nails to work,
so only the weekends or during the holiday can they stay colorful.
red + short is one of my favorite choice after seeing hilary duff with it. it rocks! =)
