Yesterday was my birthday :)♥ I couldn't post yesterday because I was tight on time but here's my post and about my birthday (if you care).

I worked from 9:30 - 1:30 & went to take the subway but the train took forever (damn weekend service changes!!) to Murray Hill [34th St] to get my eyebrows threaded. I grabbed some food on the way and again the train takes forever & it doesn't even go to my stop so I had to walk from the closest station. -_- I got home was online for a bit and did my birthday manicure (pictures below), showered & as I tried to clip my hair it messed up my thumb nail on the ends but it's okay no one noticed! :P The place I wanted to go for my birthday turns out the wait was 1 - 1 1/2 hour wait (they don't take reservations) so we went to this other Japanese place and even though it was crowded we had a GREAT time. Afterwards we went hookah and everyone was sooo done! I had to meet my friend because she had a family dinner & so we wanted to go to Crumbs but we missed it by a few minutes :( So we walked and were about to go to Max Brenners for dessert, long wait so I ended up getting my birthday "dessert" from an ice cream truck LOL. And the walk to there and back was amazing. I'm so glad my birthday was one of the best birthdays despite the lack of planning. But I had an amazing time! And if you read this, thanks for reading it and caring =) Oh and on top of an amazing birthday, a little mosquito decided to give me presents -_- 5 mosquito bites, yay.

I've been lemming for Chanel nail polishes for a while and I wanted to spoil myself. Of course I wanted Jade but that's kind of impossible so I got Nouvelle Vague on eBay. It wasn't that bad the cost + REALLY quick shipping. I've read that the formula was thick and that many people didn't like it because of that. But here's my review:

Chanel Le Vernis Nouvelle Vague
robin egg turquoise. It's 2 coats of NV and 1 coat of Seche top coat. The formula was kind of thick but you could still work with it if you're patient and trying to make the best of it. My ring finger got bubbles for some reason [-.-] but I added another coat of NV and it was all better & covered up. :P I absolutely love the color and I'm happy that it was a good experience with my first Chanel. I'm definitely planning to get more in the future. The third picture is an outdoors with sunlight photo and the first two pictures were taken in my room with indirect sunlight.

Don't forget to enter into my giveaway!
& I'm definitely taking the suggestions to heart and I will post more nail arts & better pictures! I didn't get to do anything special for my birthday mani. since I was rushing.
Hope you enjoyed and happy nails!


  1. Happy Belated Birthday! :]

    Your birthday sounds way more exciting than how I usually spend mine lol

    I know this is a nail blog but how was the threading? :P

    Chanel polish looks so pretty! ^__^
    I don't know if you already know but Seche Vite has one of the Big3 things you mentioned before (Toluene).

  2. Happy belated Birthdayyy!~

    glad you had a great birthday! and that Chanel polish is so cute!

  3. jbrobeck: Thank you!♥ :)

    Mandy: Thank you and aww. Don't worry this isn't how I usually spend my birthdays either. Threading was good, I tend to get teary eyed every time I do it but that's just me. I like it a lot more than both waxing and just plain plucking. Yeah I think I remember reading something like that about Toluene because it's in top coats/nail hardeners so that they dry faster.

    Katrina: Thank you so much! :) and I did have a good one. I love the color even though every time I'm looking at it, I'm reminded by another color that I might have or something familiar. Though I'd really want Jade and someone happened to put it up eBay, at a ridiculous price might I add, for $250 LOL!!
