Just a few days more and we’ll be ushering in the New Year!
I’m sure all the girls will color their nails pretty pretty to get in the celebration mood.

Thanks to HiShop, I got to try bloop Nail Strips a.k.a. nail it! with bloop and bloop Nail Polish to celebrate this festive season!
I started with bloop Nail Strips for my left hand.
As this was my first time using nail strips, I had to refer to the instructions behind the packaging.

Here’s how you should nail it with bloop:
  1. Make sure your nails are clean by removing any nail color or residues with nail polish remover.

  2. Choose the best strip size for each nail. You will need to cut out that particular piece and do a better measurement before you stick but make sure you leave a bit of gap (don’t cut the exact shape out) when you cut or else it will be difficult to detach the strip. If it is really too big, cut the edge by using small scissors and make it fit to your finger nails.

  3. Remove the transparent protective layer and white layer at the back.

  4. Align and place the nail strip on to the nail. The rounded ends should be facing the cuticle.
  5. Rub strip over the the nail starting from center working towards the sides. If you saw some uneven area, press or rub it gently to even it out.
  6. Press the excess nail strip across the edges of the finger nail.
  7. Using the nail file provided, file off the excess strip in a downward motion. Don’t put too much force though or the thin nail strip that is supposed to let your nails breathe will break. Do it lightly and it will come off beautifully.

So what do you think? Pretty or not? =p
What I like about them is they’re not too sticky thus making it easy to readjust for first timers like me.
Besides, I don’t need to wait too long in nail salon to get my nails done.
Time needed to draw nail art + drying time = lots of time wasted!
There’s also no alcohol and chemical content, making it safe for my nails.
For the nails on my right hand, I’ll show you in a bit so stay tuned ya!

I did briefly mention about this Candy Duo Lipstick in my Bloop X HiShop Candy Makeup Party post previously. The packaging looked like a lighter so don’t judge me if you see me with a lighter shaped thingy!
It’s just a cute lipstick! =p

So what does Candy DUO Lipstick means?
Inside the lipstick container, there are 2 gems concealed which is a matte lipstick and a lip gloss.
The Light Mocha matte lipstick looks dark to me so I tried to apply it lightly.
The color is very rich though and application was smooth.

If you prefer a matte texture, you can just wear the matte lipstick alone without applying lip gloss.
Here are some tips for you on how to apply your lipstick perfectly:

  1. It is always important to apply the lipstick with a soft bristle brush.
  2. Paint both lips avoid pressing your lips against each other, because this will blur the brightness of the shine.
  3. To check if the lipstick has been applied uniformly, you can press the lips on a tissue: the print will highlight any imperfection.
  4. When applying gloss over the lipstick, you have to avoid placing it near the edges of the lips so that lipstick does not run.
  5. If the lips are dry or chapped, the iridescent tones are not convenient, because it makes the problem more evident.
  6. Remember that if you have highlighted the eyes, the mouth should take second place with a soft and clear lipstick.
  7. If you use gloss, you should not apply powder to prevent fillings.
  8. Once applied, absorb the excess, pressing the mouth against a sheet of tissue.

For a more plumped and hydrated lips, apply a thin layer of lip gloss on top of your lips.
Trust me, your lips will look very moisturized and glossy!
Muahhh~~
I’m glad it looks quite good on my lips~~ ♥♥♥

Upon opening the cute unique cardboard box, I was greeted with the ingredient list and an information sheet on how the product works.

Have you ever wonder why the brand focuses on nurse?
Yes! Nurse was actually co-founded by a young paediatric nurse at the beginning of 2009.
Having been signed off work with dry, cracked and sore hands, she noticed that many of her colleagues were suffering in the same way. She decided to research and develop a unique formula that actually worked because none of the products on market worked for her. Hence, the birth of Yes! Nurse Protect Your Lovely Hands.

Verdict:
I’m sold by just looking at the incredibly cute and funny packaging. I guess packaging plays a big role in sales too! The tube has a simple and neat design, but of course the content inside is most important. As instructed, I squeezed a pea-sized amount onto my cleaned, dried hands and massaged it in.

The hand cream absorbed pretty fast, less than 5 minutes and there’s nothing left on my hand. It doesn’t feel greasy either so I can continue typing on my keyboard without needing to worry that my keyboard will turn oily. Definitely recommended especially for those who are working in healthcare sector since constant washing will strip off natural oil from our skin. Yes! Nurse Protect Your Lovely Hands will actively hydrates and replenishes the skin’s natural defenses against the harsh effects of constant hand washing and drying environments.

Scent is mildly pleasant, I think it’s almond smell. It has now became my hand’s best friend now! Considering the price, it’s a steal!

P/S: It’s imported from UK!
