A Quirky Halloween

Hello everyone! It is Halloween! So how many of you are dressing up and going for parties? I'd love to dress as pirate (Jack Sparrow, maybe?) or go as Tim Burton's Mad Hatter, or some cool anime character or a made up character, someday.. someday.. Hahahaha!! Well, that's how I see Halloween as, dressing up fun thingy - but that's not what Halloween is, right? So feel free to educate me about what Halloween is and perhaps next year, I will be able to come up with a look that's more Halloween appropriate. 

I was almost going to skip this year's Halloween nail art due to lack of inspirations and with the increase rate of brutality and crimes, I didn't have the mood to do anything gory (not a fan of gory stuff to begin with). So instead of horror related, I wanted to just stick with something more fun.

Bling-Bling Nails!

Hey everyone! I have wanted to showcase to you this nail art on Monday to be honest. However, after reading Anhy's post, I can't help but to be affected as well since I considered the both of us (and many of you, too) my close friends. 'Bling-Bling nails' just didn't seem right to be up here at that time. So I postponed till today to post this up.

The nail art is nothing too fancy, just a simple and direct depiction of 'Bling-Bling!' emphasizing the sparkly sparkles the polish brings! :)

Swatch & Review: The Face Shop Part 2

Hey lovelies! Here is part 2 of The Face Shop Nail Polishes I wanted to show you :) Probably these three and the highlight of all 6 The Face Shop Polishes that I recently bought. ^.^ Hope you'll be loving what you see soon! Oh by the way, my sister just recently got back from Taiwan trip and she got me lots of wonderful souvenirs and gifts! :D I think I'll show you some of them, next week! If things goes as planned. Hahaha!

Swatch & Review: The Face Shop Part 1

Heellloooo!! I had plans to put up a whole big compilation of all 6 The Face Shop Nail Polishes that are kinda new in my stash. But well, I fear it might be too long a post. So, I am breaking them up into two parts. They are by no means shown in 'collections' series. I have no idea actually, cause I haven't been paying much attention to The Face Shop's Nail Polishes since the previous ones I have got gloopy pretty quick, not to forget it was streaky and difficult to work with. But I'm a curious person, I just needed check out nail polishes to see if I may find something I like. As expected of any nail polish addict, once we stepped into a store with nail polish we'd be loitering around there for hours (or minutes if the space is kinda small :P) just seeing if there's any colour we'd be interested in picking up. I tried on a few and... whoaaaaaaa whatttttt? Looks like their formula has improved! Their brush totally feels much softer compared to before and application process was fuss free! Not as pleasant as Etude House's Dear My Nails Collection but good enough. And there are quite some varieties to pick from! What a bonus!

China Glaze Swatches & Review

Hey everyone ♥ So I've recently (not really, few months ago) added 3 more China Glaze into my collection. They are not new nor latest, hahahaha! They are pricey here, so I will always take a long time to consider /decide before buying any colours. Oh be warned! This is an unexpected lengthy post ;)

Well, well...

Good Morning everyone! Today's post is one I debated for awhile - the same one that I had somewhat hinted, few days back. I suppose if you're a blogger and you are reading this, you would agree that blogging isn't as easy as it seemed. Preparing a post could very well be time consuming - the planning process, the execution, preparing contents, the editing, yada... yada.. Basically, there's a lot that goes into the making of one single post just so that the content would be something worth reading (sorta).

So what happens when you received an email from another requesting you to guest post and you took the time and effort despite in busy situation, to meet with the scheduled time only to realised, he/she has probably changed his/her mind and no longer wants to post your stuff? I may seem like jumping into conclusions, it can't be helped, really. It's been almost 3 months since the scheduled date and up till now, there's no updates or whatsoever. Assuming he/she isn't interested anymore... why ask if you are not sincere about it? Hahahah! Besides, the scheduled date was set according to mutual agreement. So.. I don't know. But here's what I think, in my humble opinion, if one wishes to extend the date or has decided my content is not worth it anymore, is it not a common courtesy to notify me? Or are common courtesies so rare these days its not common anymore? (quoting my nephew, he has a valid point there hahaha!) Lols. I sincerely hope such people are not in a mindset of when time goes by things or situations will just fade away...slide away and slip away and far away...and disappears..... *poof!* o.O

Red-Eared Slider

Lovely day to you! :) *Ahem* I guess I would keep the unpleasant post out of this week. Since it's been a rather good week. Don't want to "spoil combo" by having a sudden not-so-nice post. LOLs! So, last Tuesday, I was on my way out when found this little fellow stranded in front of my gate. :O

Inspired by Crabtree & Evelyn

Beautiful Wednesday, yes? :) Today's nail art is inspired by Crabtree & Evelyn's beautiful packaging. If you've been reading the past few posts, you would have read that I had intentions to attempt nail arts inspired by them. This, however, was not the intended attempt. But Crabtree & Evelyn, Malaysia recently held this "Take a Picture" contest. Where participants have to take a photo of three single products in the most creative way. There will be 10 winners who get to win the 3 products they featured in their photo.

Garden of Roses

Hey everyone! This post will be one specially dedicated to showcase my mother's nails! Haha! We had quite a wonderful weekend. She got her nails done and a quick feet spa! And I won a pair of earrings! Hahaha! I was super happy to find out I was the winner. Eh, but my ears' holes closed a long time ago and I was too lazy to pierce them again. Sooo, those earrings that I've won, will be going to my Mom :)

Guest Post Feature: Lackaffen!

Happy Morning!! I am very happy to be able to feature my fellow friends of Lackaffen, whom you may recall, have given me the wonderful opportunity to guest post for them few weeks back. And nothing pleases me more than to have them here this morning! :) 

Dear readers of Lacqueerisa, 

We're so excited to present our very first guest post! Thank you so much Lacqueerisa for giving us this opportunity! ♥ 
We are five ladies from the German nail polish blog called, 'Lackaffen'. It's sort of a word play. 'Lackaffen' is actually an insult, meaning something like 'dumbass', haha. That's not what we consider ourselves of course! ;) 
If you translate it word by word it's (nail) polish (=Lack) and monkey (=Affe). We considered this a good name as we all love nail polish... and monkeys are cute and funny. 
So... enough talking now. Here are some designs we made for our guest entry today. Hope you enjoy!

And by the way: Sorry in advance for mistakes in our writing. English is not our native language, but we tried our best! 

A Quick Announcement!

Hey everyone! Aww man, I've been horribly absent. I do apologise. I have been busy, planning future stuffs for the blog. Nothing big, just small stuffs. One of it will be a monthly guest post, where I have selected some of my favourite bloggers to add a touch of their flavour into this blog! 

I have been very blessed to have met very talented bloggers, friendly, honest and from all over! Some of them whom I have quickly become close friends with! ;) Nothing to be enemies about when we're in the nail polish/nail art world, right? Hahaha!! Besides, their work are amazing! So it only made perfect sense to have this up, so I could share with you their awesomeness!

Yeap, as mentioned, it will be a monthly thing. I will be having Guest Posters here on the 3rd day of every month. So, why so specific? I hear some of you asking (either that, or my ear is itchy..). It was a random decision. Sort of like an impulse decision, but not really. I did think about it, over and over and..... *brainfried* - well, you get it. I just stick with the idea. Hahahha! :P 

Okay, that is all for this brief announcement! I'm actually very excited about this! Hehe, hope you'd be looking forward to it just as I am!  :D 

Stay tune!
