Anyhow, if you’ve followed my Instagram account, you’d probably already know that I received a sample from ArteStile!

I’d like to say a big thank you to Nick for sending me the tweezers and nail scissors! They are so adorable. You know how I like to put “xoxo” in a lot of my tweets and/or insta comments?! These 2 products are the “Hugs and Kisses” edition! Ah, perfection! I love the cute details on it.

To be honest, I’m a big fan of Tweezerman’s tweezers. I owned several, and I thought nothing could replace those. They are the best tweezers in the whole wide world. Yet, after trying the ArteStile tweezer, I think I might have to change my opinion. Don’t get me wrong, my Pointed Slant-Tip Tweezerman will always be the one. However, the slant-tip tweezer by Arte Stile is actually better than my Slant Tweezers by Tweezerman! I find that the one by ArteStile graps my fine eyebrow hair better, and it doesn’t slip. The tip feels thinner and grips my individual eyebrow hair better.

I love it! This will go on my kit, for sure. This specific ArteStile Hugs and Kisses tweezer costs CA$24.97.

The ArteStile Nail Scissors is slightly curved. The use of the nail scissors is obviously to cut or trim your nails. I usually used it to cut my cuticles or any hangnail.

Another use of the nail scissors, esp. the one like the ArteStile Nail Scissors is to actually cut the eyelid tape. As most East Asians know, if you have monolids, you probably have used eyelid tape to create a lid. My fellow Indonesian Bloggers and Makeup Artists most definitely have tried to cut and create their own eyelid tape. This scissors is perfect in creating those eyelid tape because of the curvature of the blade.

The other possible use of this nail scissors is to trim your eyebrows (in conjunction with eyebrow brush/spooly). Please be very careful when using this to trim your eyebrows as the tips are very sharp.

Revlon Chalkboard Nail Art

Hello everyone! So sorry for the empty blog last week. I’m not sure if you guys know, but I’m in Canada right now! I can’t wait to go to IMATS again this year *spoiler alert* hahahaha…Anyways, since I’m in Canada, I decided to grab this nail polish from Wal-Mart, and it only cost me CA$7.46 (before tax) at the time.

This is a limited edition product, so grab it while you can! I’m not sure how many shades are available, since these nail polishes were in quite a mess when I was there. I grabbed Spring Break, because who can resist the cute Mint color on the other end?!

Revlon Spring BreakAs you can see, the nail polish comes with 2 ends – black and mint. Both colors have a matte finish to mimick a chalkboard. The black polish has the usual normal nail brush. It’s wide with a rounded tip, which made it very easy to apply the polish to my nails. The consistency of the nail polish is just perfect. It’s very similar to OPI polishes, and it’s very opaque. I did 2 coatsĀ  on the picture below.

For the mint end, the brush is somehow not sticking together like a normal nail art polish brush is. The bristles were separated in half, so I think I bought a bad batch. Not sure if may be someone had tried to use it in the store, since the bottle wasn’t sealed or anything. Anyways, that was annoying, but oh well. I should’ve checked before I grabbed it.

So, I’m not a big nail art fan since I’m not that good with my hands in creating design or drawing, so please, don’t judge my “artwork” below..hahahaha :P…Anyways, I wrote “xoxo” on my thumb, then a failed “hashtag” sign on my index, an “exclamation mark” on the middle finger, a “question mark” on the ring finger and a somewhat skewed “heart” on my pinky.

I like the black end, and I also like the mint end. I think I’ll like it more as a nail polish, instead of a nail art. Perhaps, if I’m better at designing my nail art, I’d probably will love this product. I can’t even do my right hand since I can’t maneuver the brush properly using my left hand.
