Hey lovelies! I'm back from the one week long busines trip to Quebec City. While I was there, it was 95% work and only 5% play. I didn't realloy wear much makeup and so it feels so good to be back home.

I changed my nail colur last night from my usual vampy shades to American Apparel Butter, a pastel yellow. This is a beautiful shade of yellow but allas with my cooler undertones, it just totally clashes :( It makes my hands my redder than they actually are just coz of the contrast with my undertones. I also had a bit of application issues and found this polish really bubbles. This is the first time I've had bubbling issues with AA polishes so I'm not going to write them all off just yet.

Here's a swatch of Butter on my nails. I used two coats. Again, lovely shade, not the best on my skintone (NW25):


I also picked up a bottle of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua foundation today. I've used a couples of samples of this and loved it enough to go back for a full bottle. I'm such a foundation addict! Full review of Vitalumiere Aqua will be posted within the next couple of weeks :)


Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

    Please don't take this personally, but this is a really messy application. An angled eyeliner brush dipped in acetone would've cleaned up them cuticles in no time. Maybe try that next time. :)

    Leslie - if u look at my NOTD's throughout the last 2 years, u'll see that this one is the only place where the application is messy. I'm quite aware of how to fix the mess. But this shade had a terrible goopy formula. By the time I finished applying, I realized that the colour didn't suite me. So I didn't bother with clean up as I removed the polish after i took the pics.

    Sometimes pics are just to show my readers a swatch of a polish. This is one of those cases

    Again, totally didn't mean any offense. Sorry if it came across wrong.
