OPI So So Skullicious Swatches and Review

So So Skullicious is the Halloween mini set for 2012.  Check them out below!



Candlelight 3 coats.



A-Rose from the Dead 2 coats.


Was a little bummed out to see the wonky brush.




Hi, Pumpkin! 3 coats.


Another goofy brush.





Mourning Glory 2 coats.  This was almost opaque at 1 but I think it needed another.  Dries on the glossier side but I think still needs topcoat.

The wonkiest brush of all!  I still managed to not mess up too badly applying this color leaving the brush this way. I would normally trim or pull the pieces sticking out, but decided to leave them alone and apply the colors as-is for reviews sake. I was pretty disappointed that 3 out of 4 came this way.


You also get 2 small sheets of cute Dia de los Muertos themed water decals.  I love water decals, they are so easy to use.  You just cut around the shape, apply a few drops of water over the image and it should slide off.  Then you apply it how you like on your nail and top it off with topcoat.  The decal slides around so it is much more forgiving than a sticker.

The colors are cute enough but nothing new or that spectacular. Formula was smooth and easy to work with.  I do love the decals that came with it.  The huge turn off was the brushes for me.  I don't know if I just got really unlucky with them, but since the mini brushes are pretty tiny it made it difficult to apply.

This retails for $12.50 and is available now.

New Fall Colors on Etsy and Random Manicures

Hello everyone!  Been staying very busy with the Etsy shop, just a quick update to let you know that I have new fall colors available.  Click HERE to go check them out.







I will have 3 more colors available very soon.  Followed by new Holiday colors.  Here are some manis that I never posted.


 Lush Lacquer Pink Panther
 OPI Nein, Nein, Nein! OK Fine!  Love the name.

 Tried a gradient.  Not bad, but I didn't think it was fantastic.  Will try it again tho!


Jelly sandwich with a holiday glitter I have not released yet.  I don't even have a name for it.  The OPI is from the ballet collection called You Callin' Me A Lyre?


Hope you have a wonderful week!

Happy 4th!

Happy Independence Day!  Just a super quick mani pic post.  I sponged China Glaze White out and did a french manicure with it and then I did 1 coat of IndiePenDance Grand Finale by nAiL'DiT to blend it out.  Bought mine from Etsy HERE. It came in the mail yesterday just in time for the 4th, woohoo!  I do quite enjoy buying other Indies lol.  Have a safe and super fun day everyone!


Hey!

Long time no post!  I'm still pretty active on IG and Facebook but not much blogging.  I will be moving in a month or so and have been super busy with the house stuff, my Etsy Store and my job. http://www.facebook.com/HungryAsian  theres my facebook page if you wanna like it!

Here are some pics (missing all my IG pics cause I shattered my phone)



 MyGlam bag from 2 months ago.


One of my many Rite Aid hauls lol.


 I bought a ton of Konad plates from various vendors on Amazon.com and this particular vendor called Eos Beauty sent this plate, it was dented!  I mailed them with this picture and they said they would send a replacement but never did.  Would not recommend Eos Beauty if you like to shop on Amazon like me.



 Finally got Lemony Flutter, it's great!


 Our new house!
 Oh whoops don't mind the text in the pic haha fu Allie!


 My latest creation, Mint Condtion!

 Don't touch my mustache.


I just turned 35.

Realistically I want to say I will get the drawing done and winners contacted mid week next week. I do use Facebook to update things with my store and little tidbits from IG and such on there so check it out: http://www.facebook.com/HungryAsian Thank you for understanding and being so patient with me.

Thank you!

Hi everyone! I want to thank you all for all the kind and thoughtful messages you left for the giveaway. I will be randomly picking the winners with Rafflecopter hopefully tomorrow and will announce them by Friday. I will also be working on making my labels for my latest colors so I'm hoping to have them up on my Etsy shop by Monday. Have a great day!

Instagram

Well I'm on a roll and now have an Instagram account, here is my link: http://followgram.me/thehungryasian

This is the only pic I have up at the moment lol.  Happy Easter!

Blogger mobile test post

It's a long story why I couldn't get Blogger app on my phone until now (I had a bad experience with the manufacturer, HTC) but I finally have it!  Just testing it out.

I took this picture Sunday afternoon its my ume (plum) tree. It grows hard green plums used for umeboshi. This year I'm going to make that and plum wine!  They are the size of cherries right now I can't wait until they are ready for pickling!

Super unexciting post I know lol.

OK just to keep it slightly polish related, Twenty Ten is ready but no labels! Hope to get that ready today, sorry for the delay.


Twenty Ten




Twenty Ten is coming back, this time more blingier! 


I'm also playing with the idea to make a Sneeze Breeze-esque in a black base like shown here.   It makes it much less thirsty (still thirsty but you can gloss it out in 2 topcoats).  What do you think?  I would still offer SB of course :)

Have a great day!

Giveaway winners!

Minis are coming and 2 new shades!

One of my biggest requests is to have minis, so here they are.  They are ready to go but I haven't taken photos with my hand swatched with them so they will be going up soon.  Sneeze Breeze is up already for those that have been waiting for that one.


They are heart shaped with a pink cap! So kawaii!

They are 5ml, like the previous minis I had.


Upcoming shade #1.  Its a dark pink / raspberry jelly with fine and small square red glitter.


Upcoming shade #2 is microfine and medium silver hex glitter with a small square and medium hex lavender glitter.  This swatch is not the final version but very close!

That's it for the preview, thanks for looking!
