i luuurve nails

Wow, I'm surprised that people read my blog and I just started this on the weekend =) Thanks for the comments!
I loooove nails. Everytime I look at those Japanese magazines I wish I could have those pretty acrylic/gel nails with all the wee little bits glued on it. I regret sooo soo much that I didn't do my nails when I went to Hong Kong a few months back, cuz they were only $30CAD!!! However, being a such a devoted *cough cough* SB barista, I'm not allowed to even have clear nail polish on. Instead, I must keep my nails short and "neat" according to the rule book. This doesn't really bother me, except when I have to peel those damn bananas on the bottom part. I finally figured out why underneth my thumb nail is brown. The cheap gloves they provide doesn't stop the banana nasties from getting there. It's like a permanent stain now.
Unfortunately I only do my nails if I have at least 2 days or more off from working. Which I do right now. So here's a pic.
I used this pink nail polish I got from Shanghai waaaay back then, the Majolica Majorca SV831 to make that French manicure lookish and the topcoat from PA, another Japanese brand.
I absolutely adore the Majolica Majorca(MJ) products. It's a cheap drugstore brand from Japan, I can't remember what the price ranges are but I will post it up once I find out and do a review of it. The nail polish I purchased from Adambeauty for about $7CAD, and they last soooooo long. There is little to no chipping as long as I use a top coat. The bottles are tiny though, about 5mL, but it lasts me a long time since I can rarely use polish now anyway.
Please excuse my nasty looking hands, the SB sanitizer is the reason to my aged looking hands haha.

I really enjoyed going through your blog and I'm contacting you because I work for a word of mouth marketing company based in Toronto. For the program that I am currently working on I'm looking for women that are influential and have blogs like yourself with hopes that you'd be willing to participate in a short survey about Listerine White strips. If you are between 25-44 and qualify the survey you will be sent some free products for you to try out and review.

The survey doesn't take much of your time and id love to get a chance to connect with you and get your valuable feedback!

Please feel free to email me back at and you can let me know if your interested and how best to further contact you.

Thanks in advance,

Totally agree that girls are way too judgemental. (Read your comment on Cuttibebe's blog.) Most of my friends are of the male variety and I have very few close girlfriends. I don't have the patience to deal with chicks. I'd tear my hair out!

Hi Fei,
I think part of my hair already fell out. Well my extensions did. I'm starting to be closer friends to some of my guy coworkers, they somehow know how to cheer me up more than my friends =p

i thought i was the only one who wasn't allowed to wear nail polish for work! i don't do my nails either unless for a special occasion since it would kill them to paint them and remove them each weekend :S
