The shades I picked up are in Awesome/Silly and Excited/Bored. How these nail polish work is that when your finger nails are warm, the colors are lighter than if your nails are colder. These work especially well when you have longer nails, so it gives off that nice French manicure/gradient look, because the nails on your nail beds are naturally warmer than the long nails that hang past your finger tips, so the tips of your nails would look darker than on your nail bed. I hope you get the picture, I wish I have longer nails to show you -- maybe in a few weeks when they grow longer, I'll post another picture to show you what I mean :)
Awesome/Silly is a cool pink color that turns brighter pink when cold, and Excited/Bored is a super pretty coral color that I love.
On my hand, I have Excited/Bored. Here is what it looks like in room temperature. You can faintly see a bit of a darker line where my nail is hanging out (hence the colder "mood") -- ahh my short stubby nails :( Maybe this will be a motivation for me to tend my nails more carefully and make them grow longer and stronger -- which has always been my wish.
When I run my hand under cold water, the color turn into a much brighter shade.
Compared to when my hands are dry/warmer.
Isn't this nail polish cool? I totally get amused by little things like this, hehehe.
Also from the weekend, I stopped by Daiso hoping to find the sponge cleanser that Dina was talking about here. But I couldn't find it :( Instead I grabbed a few random stuff, including these two:
The one on the left are mesh sleeves that you can slip onto hair brushes. Those with long hair know that when you brush your hair, the fall outs will get stuck in between the bristles, making them very hard to clean. Also over time, dust might collect at the base of the bristles -- these nifty little sleeves would make cleaning much easier. Once hair gets collected on the hair brush, all you have to do is lift out the sleeve (along w/ the hair and gunk) and replace with a new one. It also claims to have anti-bacterial effects.
The little spatula on the right is made of soft flexible rubber. This is handy when you have a face or eye cream that comes in a jar. Instead of digging your finger in there, which is both unsanitary and products might also get trapped under your finger nails, these spatula will do a much better job. The soft flexible tip also ensures that you can scoop out every last drop of the product out of the jar. What I like about it is that it comes with a cap that you can cover the spatula with when not in use or traveling, which prevents it from getting dirty.
See this is why I love to visit Daiso, I can always find useful little items that will make everyday life more fun and convenient :)
