Nail Lacquer for Summer

Thursday, April 26, 2012

My love for the colors of summer will never come to an end. While I was browsing the net for fun nail arts, another crazy idea willing me to purchase new polishes came to mind and knowing how powerless I am against this – I willingly and happily succumbed. Along with the boyfie, I hurriedly went to Southway Square to look for nail polishes on their counters and boy do they have a lot! I only have a few minutes to choose because it was already 7pm something. (Yes, malls in ZC close at 7:30pm or 8pm. Boo!)

So here are my recent buys for my nails’ sake and for own peace of mind..


Bobbie Premium Nail Crème [Pina Colada] – 8ml costs Php30.00. Lately I’ve been smitten with the color yellow and it’s evident with the clothes and accessories I wear. I think it’s a really fun and bright color which can be synonymous to “Happiness”! Yes dear, I’d like to think of myself as a happy person.

This is the outcome of Pina Colada – Glaze. I know I should have gotten the one that says Regular. This just needs a lot of coats so you can achieve a really darker color or should I say a pretty finish. I applied 3 coats here and topped it with a coat of colorless nail polish.


Bobbie Premium Nail Crème [Salmon] – 8ml costs Php29.00. That’s a one peso difference with the Pina Colada variety and this one’s a “Regular”. It’s a pretty color too and I love it.


I only applied two coats for this one and it spreads quite easily too. I am satisfied with it :D

OMG (Oh My Golly) Nail Colors [Mojito] – 10ml costs Php21.00. This baby is pretty cheap compared to other brands but I’ve seen even cheaper brands than this! I simply loved the shade of this nail polish. It’s bright and eye-catching! You won’t need a lot of accessories for your hands or arms to stand out. I believe this color is quite interesting in its own.

The only problem I encountered during application is that it doesn’t spread easily maybe because of its stiff brush or maybe I’m not much of an expert (but I highly doubt that human factor is at fault here. Hehe). Just two coats and its lovely color makes  a joyful appearance on my model’s nails.


Chic Nail Color [Base Coat] – 15ml for Php34.00. I would like to call this the “colorless nail polish”, that’s the term most manicuristas use. I use this to seal the pretty colors I apply onto my nails so it doesn’t get chipped easily and to achieve a visually satisfying gloss. 

No worries when I get booboos or do a wrong move during application. I simply and almost easily remove nail polish with the use of my favorite Nail Polish Remover from Bobbie! It has a scent that I find pleasing and removes polish in a breeze. Plus it doesn’t leave a white film on your nail which is really amazing. I highly recommend this! 

There you go dearies, I know you were expecting me to showcase a nail art here but I’m still trying that out and when I mastered it already, I might as well share it here! Got any ideas?
