    MANICyours: Ciate Feathered Manicure

    The leaders of innovative nail textures are back, and it’s flying off the charts with ingenuity I was in Singapore recently for the Bolshoi Ballet performance of Swan Lake and decided we needed something equally as elegant and classy for a manicure. Ciate’s Feathered Manicure proved to be the perfect choice because it was subtle, yet was interesting enough to hold on its own that we couldn’t help but stare at it at every chance we got – who needs glitters and sparkles (well, sometimes!). These come in three different kits (L-R) Ruffle My Feathers, All A Flutter, and What A Hoot. We review Ruffle My Feathers with a lilac…

    MANICyours: Nails Inc Feathers Chester & Butter London Pink Ribbon

    Nude nails and parrot feathers, who’d have thought it would be such a fly combo? I’ve never been the type of girl for subdued nail colours, but after reading about the Louboutin’s 5 Shades of Nude I was obsessed about finding my perfect shade of nude. Butter London’s Pink Ribbon worked beautifully for that ‘I’m-not-wearing-nail-polish’ effect on me, and you might be asking..why would anyone pay RM54 to look like you have nothing on? Well, much like nude pumps – nude nails look elegant, clean, and polished. It’s subtle, but the message it sends across is that you’re someone who really looks after your appearance, right down to the little details.…

    MANICyours: Batik Nails

    Thinking of something for Malaysia Day? How about something less obvious, yet still celebrating the beauty of all things Malaysian? This year, instead of going literal with ‘Jalur Gemilang‘ nails that resemble the Malaysian flag – we’ve decided to take elements from the flag, ie. the colours and used it in a batik-inspired motif featuring of course, the hibiscus. This look is all about the details, and so the more dots and lines you add – the better it will look! The objective is to fill up each nail with intricate designs to imitate the batik motif as per the picture above. What You’ll Need:  Dark blue nail polish, lighter…
