My Happy Nails with Lil Cozy Nails

It’s my first time going to a home base nail salon and I’m glad I went to Lil Cozy Nails.

310B Punggol Walk, Lift Lobby 3, Singapore

What brings me there? Because I’m tight on budget and my pre-wedding shoot is happening soon! How soon? NEXT DAY! I was searching in some facebook bride page and saw a few ladies recommended her service hence decided to give it a try..
Her price are very competitive!! Tell me where can you get a classic gel manicure for $20!? CLASSIC leh!
Anyway, I quickly contacted her to make appointment and hoping she’s available!! Thankfully she is but not the earliest slot, IT’S OKAY!! Anything slot will do now!
It case you’re wondering where is Punggol Walk, It’s just diagonally next to Punggol Waterway Point!! As soon as i arrive, our young lady boss (Clarice) noticed that I’m limping and showered me with love and concern! Not just verbal concern, she put them into action!!
She gave me ICE PACK!!!! (T__T) Touch until max can!!! Before coming over, I tripped and kissed the stairs, thus the limping~! It might not matters to you but tell me, has any nail salon gave you this kinda “special service” when they see you’re injured or hurt?
*touch wood*
Pls don’t be so careless like me just for that ice pack! My foot almost broke after the shoot! Imagine high heels + sprain ankle!! 都快笑不出来了!
After much hoo-ha about the sexy foot, we started our manicure session.

Clarice started removing my existing gel polish, buff my nails, soak them, trim cuticles..
Throughout the whole process, there was not any moment of awkward silence. We just keep talking talking and talking. Very soon, she’s done with the cuticles!

Just look at them, I’m sure the difference are pretty obvious!! I’m probably one of her most satisfying customer – customer who gave her satisfaction, not the other way round.. !!
I actually feel happy looking at cleaned cuticles too!

(White Ombre)
The ombre blends so well!!! No hard line in between and Clarice even offered to do a coat of pinkish nude for me before the white ombre so that the nails will look healthier!!
She’s all out to make me a bride with beautiful nails!
(White Ombre with Silver Glitters)
Here’s the final product!! My simple and classic bridal nails by the young and beautiful lady boss, Clarice!

And this is taken the next day while I’m on the road to bridal studio for my shoot! Natural day light makes it so beautiful! Cuticles are cleaned too!!! Oh Man!
That’s not all! Although this is a home base serivce, Clarice actually comes up with a reward program to pamper her customer!!
Collect a stamp with every $25 spent!! On the 10th stamp, you’ll get a Express Gel Manicure Service!! Card is valid for 1 year, hence you can slowly collect, no rush!!
WAIT! How can we end this post without a good deal?!

I googled.. I joined forum.. I asked my bride-to-be/graduated bride friends.. Got all information from all sources so that we can zoom down/shortlist what we wanna do to have our dream wedding!

Moving forward, I will be sharing my experience (too) to all brides-to-be and maybe a lil tips!

Once a each post is done, I will add a hyperlink in this post for easy reference!

Singapore 1st Orchid Stem Cell Beauty Drink

Orchid symbolizes luxury, love, strength and beauty. It represents refinement and perfection. With more than 25,000 species of orchids and over 100,000 hybrids growing throughout the world, these exotic flowers have been a part of many cultures since a long time back.

Orchids were used to promote good health and cure diseases by the ancient Chinese, ancient Aztecs brewed a strength potion from its flowers to obtain power over their enemies, Europeans used it in Love potions and the Geeks used it for fertility.

Today, Orchid extracts (the flower as a whole) are use in multiple varieties of products including hair care, body care, and skincare products. However researchers have found a breakthrough in an untapped part of Orchids; its stem cells.

Do you know? Fundamental to having good skin is maintaining healthy skin cells. To fully benefit from any oral beauty supplements or skincare, it is important to have healthy skin cells to fully absorb and locks in the skin beneficial nutrients. Research discovered Orchid Stem Cell is a powerful antioxidant and possesses strong anti-inflammatory properties, particularly young orchid stem cells protect the skin from environmental damages while hydrating and renewing our skin cells thus making it an excellent youth revitaliser which works on almost all skin types.

My stash of… Lipcolors (2016)

YEH! I’m writing again! I’ve haven’t been sharing much on makeup product this year isn’t it, especially lip color!

I’ve been kinda into lip color (again) lately but the thing is I usually put them on only in the morning. I don’t do touch up, I don’t bring them out.. LOL! Anyway, that’s beside the point. Nice color must still be shared!


And so… here are the latest collection I have.. Enough to create different look for 2 weeks!! *pout*

Today post, I will only be sharing with my favorite few out of this 12 sticks!


Let’s start with something new ..



Maybelline – this is definitely not my first gradient lip stick! My first was from VDL. It was pretty sheer and girls who love natural look wold probably love it (you can check it out from HERE).

I thought this would be the same too until i tried the tester at Watson’s and I’m like .. “Wow, quite pigmented as compared to VDL triple shot!” Not only that, it’s pretty easy to glide on and it can cover my dry chapped lips!

Did I mention, it smells sweet too!



This cushion tint gives a velvety finish on its own and works great too when used with other lip color! I just love how the cushion can help to create gradient lips so easily and NO MESS at all!

And if you didn’t know yet, this tint can be a blusher and eye shadow too!

Below image shows u the different look it can give..  Yes, all using the same stick!


Well I’ve tried to do some laying of the color and I think they looks great!!


Top image is my Maybelline’s bitten lips and bottom is layed with Loreal’s tint caresse.

Chio (pretty) right? LOL.. I like how the laying works! The way it gives a playful yet not too drama look! And it’s not the boring monotone color! So 3D!

img_0227 img_0228

I’ve tried them on my hands to show u a more accurate color tone of my bitten lips (it seems more pink on lips in those photos).. It’s suppose to be more red though..

I’m definitely getting other colors to my collection!

Next, I’m sharing with you some collection I’ve got from VDL! It’s not triple shot but something that caught my eyes too!

VDL – Pantone Expert Color Lip Cube Tranquility – 01 Serenity

img_9773 img_9775

I won’t exactly say this is a lip color because it doesn’t really give you pink/red/violet color on your lips. Instead it works more like a (sheer) lip balm/ lip base.


You applied it on your lips (clear) and just wait few sec you’ll see it turned sheer pink!

img_9776 img_9782

IMO, this wasn’t as good as Son & Park Sugar Tint but I love how the blue and pink marble effect the lipstick look! #socool!

Taking another VDL color that I have (105 Pink Positive) I layer it on top of my Serenity!

img_0234 img_0235

Such elegant color not only looks beautiful, it gives SPF protection and moisturized your lips too!

If you have realized, my VDL lipstick all comes in a cube top! This is not found in other competitors product yet! So what’s so good about the cubic edge? It actually helps your draw a more accurate/define cupid bow – easier to achieve one too!!

Next up, my happiest purchase!!


img_0243 img_0244

Bought this during a sale event and until now I can’t get over the excitement!!

As the name suggest, it’s a matte lip color. But you can see it’s not those drying matte color. It still give a lil natural shine  and cover my chapped lips well! All this thanks to it’s creamy non drying formula!

Another beauty of this lippie is that it can gives you different look depending on how many layers you apply and how you do it!


From a natural to a rocker! LOL.. For use who prefer lighter tone, you can achieve with 1993 too! Just lightly dap it on your lips and blend them!

Seriously, everyday different look is achievable from these different lippie!!! Try changing a color today!!
