The secret to removing that annoying glitter polish

Glitter polishMy 2 week old glitter polish mani. Model’s Own Freak Out! on Sally Hansen Pat on the Black.

It’s been awhile since you painted that pretty glitter polish on your nails and it’s starting to chip, so you decide to remove it.

Chinese New Year ’14

Warning: picture heavy post up ahead!

So you may have heard that my family isn’t the traditional Chinese type of family, but yes, we do still celebrate CNY (sort of)! Honestly though, I’m totally not in the CNY mood this year. Partly because I ended school at 6pm on Thursday and was late for reunion dinner, and am going down to office tomorrow for my FYP.

And now for the mandatory CNY selfies:

Finally have some time to blog about this since I managed to finish almost all my work for today (: And sorry if the above picture gave you a fright or anything haha.
