2016 have been a productive year for me although, honestly, none on my list was actually accomplished in full. Yet it was filled with successful unplanned activities which made my year a lot more exciting. I've never let my instinct take the wheel before but things get crazy busy all at once, I didn't have much time to brood on anything that's been going on.
My year started with winning a beauty pageant. It wasn't like me to join contests like that but since it's part of my job to represent my department, I didn't have a choice but to follow my boss's orders. I ended up having fun trying on clothes and walking the ramp. The event also allowed me to conquer my fear of being judged on stage by the crowd.
Buying Something Useful
I've been working since 18 and the only useful thing I got myself is a small digital camera. I spend a lot on bags, foot wear, clothing, etc but not on expensive things that I actually need. One day, my gadgets just stopped working and for the first, I had to purchase a phone and a laptop. I needed it for work so I had to.
Finally l was able to get two of these grainy polishes by Chic Cosmetics. It's been around since 2012 so it's nothing new but it wasn't easy to find from where I live. This isn't the complete collection but I'm happy with the available colors.

I've been a nail art enthusiast for years and I've been using the same nail art brush set from Klick, a sister company of OMG. I didn't have any problem with it so if I were to purchase another nail art brush set from a local brand, I'd definitely get one from either Klick or OMG.

Among my favorite local brands of polish is Bobbie by Chic. The first time I saw this, I only bought black hole (the last one in the picture). I fell in love with it so I purchased the rest of the shades available at Watsons.
Galactic Night has quite a range of finish that I haven't seen on any local brands. It is a collection of pearl, foil, duochrome, chrome/metallic and holographic.

I've been seeing OMG's 2 Way Nail Art Brush at Watsons for awhile but I was resisting the urge to buy it since I didn't like their polish formula in the past. But it has been four years (well, almost) since I first tried it. They've changed the packaging of their regular polishes so maybe this time their formula would also be better.
