At an early age I took interest in the girliest things: dresses, high heels, haircutting and nail cleaning and polishing.
I trimmed my sister’s hair with a pair of yellow clown scissors, got scolded for it and eventually praised because of the unexpected salon-worthy cut I was able to pull off. I also did a lot of hairstyles on myself and on my sisters (different tarantula looking braids and hair curls with the stem of plants). I also loved applying countless nail polish colours despite my dad’s strict instructions not to, tried taking them out with acetone once he saw it and ended up spilling it on the wooden floor turning it all white.
Up to this day I still love the girliest things, but now I am more careful and meticulous about the products that I use and salons I visit. Here I’d like to share with you some of my discoveries about products that I love and continue to use, and those I decide never to go back to again.
During the latter part of 2015 I discovered the beauty of light coloured nail polish. I used to hate it, thought it made my hands and feet look darker than it already is, so I avoided all light/pastel colours in the salon and always opted for red, black, or dark brown.
But for the new year i’m going for a new favourite.
It was my first time to try Cuccio Colour and this shade, and I fell in love with both after having my appointment at Tips N Toes. The polish stayed on well and took almost two weeks before any signs of chipping, and even if the colour applied was light, it didn’t show any discolouration after having it on for weeks and going to the beach with it. The lightness of the polish did make my skin look slightly darker, but it felt much cleaner and lighter than my usual dark polish. A new favourite in my roster of polishes to use.
