Congratulations to Winnie & Kai ! Both of them got 5/6 answers right. Hence, I ranked them as 1st and 2nd prize winners respectively according to the date and time of their entry. Will be emailing them with respect to their prize. (:
For those who did not win, don't fret.
I sincerely thank all of you for your support and your participation.
Exams are finally over! Woohooooo! This semester's papers were disastrous. I'm just crossing my fingers right now and praying hard for moderation. There really is a big difference taking a degree. Oh well. I don't wanna think about it already.
If you have noticed, which you should, big revamp to the website! The previous pink one was a preset template by Blogger, which wasn't really very "me". This template looks more like something I'd do! Reason for making it the background all dark is because I really want my nail art to stand out. And that's the message I wanna bring across too. Brighten up your life with beautiful nails you can afford! (:
This template was edited by me. More changes to go, but the html codings are make my eyes go O.O already. So bear with this for a while ya.. Will try to put in more changes as time goes by.

Discover a Treasure Trove of Color with New BRIGHTS by OPI, Inspired by Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Create Waves with Silver Shatter!
OPI captures the bright colors and breathtaking escapades seen in Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides with six limited-edition Nail Lacquers and a new Silver Shatter! Disney’s highly-anticipated fourth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise is directed by Rob Marshall and features an all-star cast, including Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz.
To celebrate the new film, OPI launches its Spring 2011 BRIGHTS Collection, which features a groundbreaking new color addition in the Shatter coat formula– Silver. Inspired by graffiti art,this shade leaves behind a crackled, two-texture silver finish when painted over any dry OPI hue.
“OPI is thrilled to celebrate the latest film in this beloved series,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides lacquers were inspired by a world filled with mythical mermaids, gleaming treasure, and high-seas adventure. With shades ranging from sage and lavender to khaki gray and pastel pink, these colors are evocative of a warm, tropical setting, with a classic nautical influence.”
The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides collection includes:

I've removed my tagboard from the website due to the spam and all that I have no idea why. Should you have any queries, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can leave a comment at the bottom of the post. Thanks!
I finally got my name cards printed !! Few days back, got my brother to send my name cards for printing and yes! It was really exciting to see my own name on the name card. Felt really good. Can't really find a good enough word to describe how I felt. Ask me for my name card the next time you see me! (:
Another thing is, I'm contemplating on removing the tagboard cause there are alot of spam messages and I'm getting really irritated with it. If you see it gone one day, not to worry. You can still get to me through the comment box at the bottom of each post. (:
The funfair at St. Joseph's Church yesterday was a blast! The church organized a funfair in conjunction with their 165th anniversary, and I took up a stall there since I'm from that church as well. The church will be undergoing renovation after next week, so all proceeds from the funfair will go toward the church's building fund.
My Primary 2 cousin, Fhilis, stayed over at my house on Saturday to help out on Sunday as well. Hence, I took the opportunity to use her as my model. Some of the designs were taken from http://www.rina-alcantara.com/ and I tried them out.
Tadah !! Decided to try out designs that I've never tried before. Some are repeated cause I really couldn't think of 10 different designs at 9 in the night.
A closer view on her left hand. Featuring a few characters - the cow, bear (which turned out like a hamster), panda which I've done before during the Singapore Poly event, the minnie mouse ribbon and a simple flower. I really love the cow! It was the love of many parents at the funfair as well.
A closer view on her right hand. Featuring the usual polka dots, cupcake which I really love as well. The "cherry" wasn't suppossed to be so big! Somehow the OPI polish for that was exceptionally runny and it flowed down. Tried to rectify it and that was the best I could do. The heart, need to brush up on my outlining! The tree with clouds in the sky, wanted to add in the sand, but her nails are too small. Probably workable for adults. And the bumble bee! It looks opposite in the picture because of the angle I took the picture.
Business was really good! All my OPI were sold out. So were the mother's day packages and top/base coat bundles. Majority of my customers who did manicures were children! They were so cute. According to the parents who told me, in past years, their children would pull them to the game stalls. But this year, they pointed and said they only wanted to come to my stall to do their nails! Hhahha. All of their coupons went to their children's nails already. It was a waste that I didn't manage to take pictures of their nails cause many were queueing to get their nails done. If any of you have the pictures, do tag me in facebook!
Some parents approached me and asked if I do nails for children's parties and functions. Why not! Just call me. I'd definitely be more than happy to go if my time allows me to. It feels like a great joy to be able to integrate my job as a teacher into doing nails for children. I see a little link there now. (:
The children were really sweet. One of them even turned around to say thank you to her mummy for giving her the money to paint her nails. It's a joy to paint for children. Will want to do it more in future!
