St. Nails: The Angelic Nail Colors

I can’t really think of a blog post title that would suit the nail polish colors that I chose when I had my nails done at St. Nails. This just popped out my mind considering the shade names of the polishes I picked. Haha! ๐Ÿ˜›

I have been wanting to try a blue polish shade for a long time already. So, when I visited St. Nails last Friday, I browsed over their available blue shades in their nail wheels. Two blue shades immediately caught my eye. These are the Orly Angel Rain and Orly Angel Eyes polishes. So angelic, isn’t it? Haha!

Since I wanted to try both shades, I had my nail artist do an Odd One Out style on my nails. ๐Ÿ˜€

St. Nails: My Sweet Nude Valentine’s Day Nails

Red and pink are the most common colors during Valentine’s Day. Pink is even my favorite color. It is just that I don’t know why I don’t feel like wearing pink nails this coming Valentine’s Day. It feels so common that I want to veer away from it.

When I was choosing my nail polish shade at St. Nails, I was torn between going for a dark gray color or a nude one. In the end, I chose a nude shade since I wanted to make my nails look simple yet still sweet which could be perfect for a date night. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I got the Orly Sand Castle. ๐Ÿ˜€

I have already read about Beauty & Butter from several beauty blogs but I have not tried having my nails done there yet. Luckily, they opened a new branch at SM Jazz – Makati which is near my workplace. So, yup, I went there to have a manicure! ๐Ÿ˜€

I super like the nail salon’s cute interiors. Its colorful walls and seats make the whole space so hippy-looking. Also, you can get to watch a movie for free during your stay. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Review: Tony Moly Pure & Clear Nail Enamel Remover

No matter how much you love colors on your fingers, eventually you will need to remove it due to some chipped off polish. When my nail polish gets chipped off, I get so embarrassed that I tend to hide my hands so that people won’t notice my nails. Here are examples…

You wouldn’t want those kind of nails, do you?

To prevent that kind of embarrassing moment, you should rely on a good nail polish remover that would effectively remove your nail polish and at the same time, won’t dry out your skin and nails. A good product that I could recommend? Go for Tony Moly Pure & Clear Nail Enamel Remover. ๐Ÿ˜€
