5 Ways to Repair Cracked/Chipped Polish

Is chipped nail polish ever considered cute and attractive? No, never! Actually, it has become a beauty and fashion taboo. It's either you get your nails done or not at all. That's why it sucks when manicure chips even if you got it done just a day or 2 ago.

So, I decided to make this video showing you some tips and ways to rescue chipped manicure.


The nail polishes that I used are these colorful ZOYA nail polishes from their Stunning Collection. The colors are so vibrant and pigmented that they are able to conceal the ugly chipping in just a few coats! They are also shiny and last long enough on the nails even without the use of top coat or clear polish. 

Please watch the video below. The video quality seems a little off because of the lighting and camera setting. I really hate it when my my camera and light connive to make my hands looks dry, dark and ugly. lol I am telling you that my hands aren't really that ugly in person. Anyway, enjoy the video!



Here is one example of rescuing chipped nail polish. Some people resort to just removing the polish. But don't you think it's such a waste of time and money? Grab a polish in another color and a tiny sponge then create pretty ombre on your naisl!

Got a little more time in my hands when I did these lucky paper stars! hehe 

I hope you enjoyed this video and the tips I showed you.

ACNE SCARS Treatment : Flawless Fractional Needling Therapy (FNT)

One of the most asked questions to me are about acne scars. Getting rid of acne is one thing and getting rid of acne scars is another thing. Based on my experience, I can say that getting rid of acne scars is as difficult as getting rid of acne.

I have tried a lot of products and treatments to get rid of acne scars. Some of them worked while some didn't. And since this blog is quite popular for acne products, tips and recommendations, I decided to introduce to you guys a new treatment that I tried recently. 

I went to Flawless for an FNT treatment. FNT is Fractional Needling Therapy. This is a micro needling treatment that is a cost-effective skin solution to scars, acne, wrinkles, dark spots, stretch marks and hair loss. It uses tiny needles to penetrate hard-to-reach areas and infuses effective and safe serums that lift, smoothen, lighten, refine and restore the youth and radiance back to the skin, So you can say hi to a more beautiful and flawless skin!

Watch the full video, review, demonstration and result here:



My main concern were the black/dark spots that I got due to recent pimple spots. I also have a lot of deep, ice pick scars on the temple and jaw area. My skin looks fine from afar and when you're looking at me from the front. But when I turn to the side, that's when you will notice the open pores on those areas.


ABOUT FNT :

*Each treatment costs Php 4,500 (Could be less or more, depending on the area you want to be treated.)
*The treatment may seem scary at first because of the word "NEEDLES", but it won't hurt because of anesthesia. The anesthesia will be applied on the area and will be left there for 45 minutes to allow the area to numb.
*The needling treatment will last for 30 minutes.
*This treatment needs at least 4 days to heal and rejuvinate.
*The treatment will be done by a professional doctor.




This treatment promises to improve the overall appearance of the skin especially acne scars, dark spots, wrinkles, stretch marks and hair loss. The only downside to it is that your skin/face will get really red for 3 days! The attendant at Flawless will give you a face mask to cover your face just in case you feel too shy to be seen by people with extreme red face.



Here's how my skin looked after the FNT treatment.



Just like most skin treatments, the skin/face will look really bad so all you have to do is bare with it and just think that you'll be rewarded with better skin in a few days! The red marks that I had the previous day became a bit darker.


On the second day, the dark spots started getting drier and some areas started peeling.


On the third day, the dark/red spots peeled off and reveled a better looking skin. My skin also appeared tighter and lighter.


On the fourth and final day, my skin looks so much better! The treatment rejuvinated my skin revealing so much lighter, tighter and fresher looking skin. The deep, ice pick scars are still visible but some of the dark, acne spots became lighter. I also love that my skin looks less drier and flaky!

A lot of people have read and tried the Easy Peel treatment also from Flawless that I blogged a few years ago. And that treatment is also one of my favorite treatments for my face. After trying the FNT, I can say that this will also now become another favorite Flawless treatment!

PROS :
  • Flawless has a lot of branches so you can have it done near your home.
  • It rejuvinates the skin
  • It makes acne scars and dark spots lighter
  • It makes skin look a few years younger
  • The treatment is not painful
  • The treatment is done by a professional doctor


CONS :


  • A bit pricey, depending on your need and budget
  • Downtime could reach up to 4 days
  • You won't be able to wear your favorite makeup/cosmetics/regimen for a few days

For a better comparison, here's how my skin looked BEFORE and AFTER the Flawless FNT treatment.

This is just the first session. I am scheduled to have 6 session so you can only imagine how much better my skin will look then! I am sooo excited for my skin! hehe

I hope you like this blog post and found it helpful. If you want to know more about this treatment, please visit Flawless' website HERE or visit your favorite Flawless clinic at the nearest mall!

Please leave your comments and questions below and I will get back to you as soon as I can!

Makeup Challenge : Cousins do my Make-up

You guys know how much I love being in Tarlac. I forgot to tell you guys that I am back here and will be staying for a few weeks to spend yet some more time with my grandfather. You also know that I have a lot of cute cousins here so I decided to film a challenge video with some of them.

Please watch the video here :




We did this video just for fun! Margit knows a little about make-up so she kind of knew what she was doing. Patty, on the other hand, was quite a newbie to make-up so it was so cute to see her not know what to do. It was also funny how she already did my eyes, brows and my cheeks then applied concealer on me! hehe

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video! Please let me know if you'd like to see more "challenge" videos like this.

Korean Food Challenge | 먹방

I love food! I don't think there was ever a time I said no to food or purposely wasted food. I feel like food feels sad when they don't get eaten so I always try to eat as much as I can. hehe

One of my favorites is Korean Food! I guess it's like a domino effect. Once you get onto the Korean band wagon, you start liking their dramas, then their actors, then their music, then their singers/idols, then their language, then their food. Or maybe, food comes first! hehe I decided to film a "Korean Food Eating Challenge" with my friend Andy from shimmerjjang.com



In South Korea, there's a thing going on now called " 먹방 " (MokBang) where someone would put lots of food on the table, set a camera in front of her/him then film the entire eating time. Initially, this was for people who don't have anyone to dine with. So if you don't like eating alone, you just turn on the internet and search for these videos. You'd then instantly feel like you are eating with someone. These days, this has also become a channel for people to know reviews about certain food or maybe by companies to promote their food/product. Oh sorry, did I talk a lot? hehe 

Here's our video! Enjoy! ^^



WHAT WE ATE :

Sesame Ramen | 라면 
Where : Amateur Restaurant (Yes, it really is named Amateur! hehe) in Garnet Road in Ortigas, Pasig
Php 99 per bowl. 

Gimbap | 김밥 
Where : Amateur Restaurant in Garnet Road in Ortigas, Pasig
Php 100 per dish.

Patbingsu  | 팥빙수 
Where : Mr. Parks Bread and Cake in Garnet Road, Ortigas, Pasig City
Php 180 per bowl.

You may think we only had 3 kinds of food but we really were so full that I felt like a pregnant toad that afternoon. A cute pregnant toad, though! hehe

After that, Andy gave me some gifts! These books are interesting so I'll surely read them when I go back to Tarlac. It's always nice to read books under a tree while sipping a cool and fresh fruit drink! Ahh, can't wait! You guys know how much I love my province Tarlac. She also gave me this interesting lip tint in a really cute packaging! Can't wait to try it as well. Thank you, Andy! ^^


That's our food challenge! Later on, we dissed the challenge and just proceeded to enjoying the food and our time together.  

Let me know if you enjoy videos like this so I could try other cuisines, as well! I'm thinking Japanese food next! What do you think?

Ever Bilena Cheek Blush with UVA/UVB Protection Review and Swatches

I don't think I have ever blogged or reviewed blush products before. So this post is a first! Yay! I guess the reason for that is because I only have very few blush products. It's amazing how a thin swipe of blush in the morning can last the whole day. That's why I never really felt the need to hoard. 

But even before I started blogging, one of the local blush brands that I like has always been Ever Bilena. They have awesome shades and it's also amazing how their packaging looks like MAC's at first! hehe So today, I'll be reviewing 3 shades of Ever Bilena's Cheek Blush.


Ever Bilena is one of the leading local make-up brands here in the Philippines. It is quite known and almost every woman here owns a thing or two from EB. 

Question : Is it important to apply blush? 

The answer : IT IS. Especially if you are going for that complete, made-up look. Blush works wonders for the face, giving the face a sexy look, contouring the face and giving warmth and a flush of color. However, if not used appropriately, blush can make someone look cheap and trashy. The key here is to strive to look as close to natural as possible. Choosing the right shade to match the natural skin tone also helps to achieve the perfect "blush-y" look.

Here is guide that I found on Pinterest to help you in applying blush properly.



WHERE TO GET IT : Ever Bilena counters at local malls, shops and drugstores

PRICE : Php 175 per pack | 4g


Here are the shades that I have : Earth, Honest, Raisin


LIKES :

  • Inexpensive
  • Local/Filipino Brand
  • Available at many malls and drugstores
  • Comes in many shades
  • Pigmented
  • Blends well on the skin
  • Doesn't make my sensitive skin itchy

DISLIKES :

  • Too powdery
  • Makes my pores/acne scars more visible

Here's how each shade looks when applied on the cheeks. I purposely applied a bit too much so you guys could see the true colors. ^^

Honest is too striking while Raisin seems like a shade for people with paler/fairer skin tone. My favorite among the three has got to be the EARTH. I have dark, Morena skin so the other 2 were too bright and too striking. Earth, on the other hand, complimented my color and looked natural. It contoured my face well and gave me nice color without looking overboard. I already see myself using this shade often. 

This is a nice product to try, if you haven't yet. It is also nice that the price is very affordable so you can totally afford to get a couple of pans. Also a great product to try, especially for girls that are just beginning to start learning about make-up and don't have a lot of budget yet.


I hope you like this review!

How To Look Like A K-pop Star : HYUNA (Bubble Pop) 김현아 ♪

This is something I've been wanting to do for the longest time! One of the things that make people like K-pop is their beauty/make-up style and their fashion. Hyuna, being like one of the K-pop goddesses, surely deserves to be in the pilot episode of this "K-pop look" series!

When I hear "Hyuna", the first thing that comes to my mind is her song Bubble Pop. It may be old but her aura and sexiness in the video will definitely not get old. Here's my take at Hyuna's look!


Have you watched the music video? I love how almost all of Hyuna's outfits in the video are simple and don't get out of style easily. It's also a plus point that the items are pretty basic so you could get them at local malls or stores. 

Here are some of the outfits I decided to copy:

Please watch the video here : 



I love how the outfit is so wearable! Valentine's day is also just a few days away so you may want to consider wearing this ensemble on that day, too. That is if you are going out on that day. I probably would be on a bus then, travelling back to Tarlac to spend time again with my Grandfather for a few weeks. hehe


WHAT I WORE :
Red Cropped Top - Forever 21
Denim Jacket - H&M
Denim Shorts - Aeropostale
Red Sneakers - Converse
Silver Watch - Timex

Ooh Ooh Ooh Oh Oh!



Cringe-worthy but I also tried the other 2 outfits. ^^ I was not able to shoot outside so the photos are low quality. Legs are too dark because I only had the spotlight on my face! hehe

WHAT I WORE :
Left :
Floral Dress - SheInside.com
Glittery Heels - Korean Brand

Right :
Black Undies - Wacoal
Red Off-shoulder Top - Forever 21
Denim Shots - Aeropostale
Leopard-print Heels - Thrifted




Fact : I used to dislike Hyuna (a lot) because Sunggyu of Infinite, about 2 years ago, kept saying that his ideal type was Hyuna. As an immature fan, that was a taboo and something I didn't like hearing. Instead of disliking Gyu, I disliked Hyuna instead. hehe But when Sunggyu stopped mentioning Hyuna, I started seeing her in a different light and finally appreciated her beauty and sexiness!

What do you think of this look? Yay or Nay?

This is just the first episode of this series! SM and JYP artists soon! ^^ Do you have any requests or suggestions? Let us know in the comments section below!

Have a great day!

Kristine
