January is almost here and I've been watching a marathon of fashion shows on youtube. As expected, there's a wide variety of colors and patterns from the spring/summer 2017 collection to inspire my next post and nail art design.
I'm sure we have fashion shows but I'm not an important person to be invited. Finding the same videos online to check the local trend is just as difficult so I watch the Paris fashion week instead.
Anyways, here's my nail color trend report for the upcoming season.
1. Neutrals and Grayscale
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.
What: OMG Oh My Girl Professional Nail Art Brush
Where to Buy: SM Department Stores (body and bath section)
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.
What: Bobbie Galactic Night Collection
Where to Buy: Watsons
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.
What: OMG 2 Way Nail Art Brush
Cost: P32.00 each
Where to buy: Watsons
I’ve been reading fashion magazines and saw several articles talking about nude eyeshadow palettes. There’s B.Y.S., L.A. Girls, Maybelline and many more. But the price range of P500 to P1,250 for an eyeshadow palette is just a little pricey (at least for me)
Using a nose pack is part of my regular face cleaning routine. I have a combination skin so dirt tends to pack in my pores immediately even only a few days after getting a facial.
The newest I’ve tried is this Beauty Fix Nose Pack (Whiteheads and Blackheads Remover) I got from Watsons. A tube would cost about P65 but since I’m not sure if it works, I got the sachet pack instead which is only P18.
Recently, I purchased a few make up products for a formal event I had to attend. It wasn't much and they are not new in the market but this is the first time I'm ever going to try them. I also received one high end lipstick from auntie as a gift (thank you auntie). I've been in love with this brand for so long so I thought of adding it to the loot.
I've been buying from Zalora for quite some time now but this is the first time I purchased from their in house brand.
Since the rainy season has started, I purchased an ankle length boots that I could walk with to work. It looks like leather but it's actually polyutherane, a type of plastic. Makes me feel a little less guilty walking it in puddle and mud.
The other item I got is a structured handbag made with the same material as that of the boots.
It comes with a free sling and the sides are adjustable so it can make more room for the rest of my things.
In my last transaction with Zalora, I had a bit of an issue with the shipping. My items were delayed for about a week and their customer service wasn't helpful at that time. Then recently I noticed that not all the items in their store are being shipped by Zalora which is something new. It became a marketplace so the seller themselves fulfill the shipment. Anyways, I'm really glad nothing of this sort happened this time. The shipment was fast that it only took exactly two days for my items to arrive.
Will I buy from their brand again? Of course and just in case you're buying, look carefully before check out whether Zalora will fulfill the shipment because I can't say the same for the other brands.
