Sally Hansen Nail Polish Haul [Indonesia]

So I went to Indonesia for 2 months. That explained my “disappearance” in December and January. But don’t worry, I’m back.

In Indonesia, I bought some nail polishes. A set of 3 Sally Hansen nail polish and also their acrylic base coat, which I have been wanting to try for a while. I knew that some Guardian stores (a drugstore in Indonesia) sells Sally Hansen products but I only just found out that Sogo (a major department store) actually sells them. The price is significantly lower than Australia so I had to get a few.

The three Complete Salon Manicure polishes came in a box set for Rp. 290 000,- or about AUD $29.

I wore Wine Not and Golden Rule for Chinese New Year:

And I wore Cherry Up for Valentine’s Day:

I absolutely love the consistency and brush of this Sally Hansen line for doing an all-over colour since the brush is flat and wide. So if you’re not into flat, wide nail polish brushes, you might not be into this.

The line also claims that it is a base coat as well as a top coat. Though I always use a base coat and top coat still even when using the complete salon manicure.

I used this base coat underneath my valentine’s day nails and I’m not sure if it was the base coat or some outside-forces (i.e. I may have been working more with water, etc lately) but the staying power is not as great as my usual manicures. I will have to try it again and make up my mind later…

Have you gone nail polish shopping lately?

Tea Haul – March 2013

Happy Saturday dear Internet!

Today, I want to share with you my love of tea and my new journey on trying out different types and flavours of tea.

I grew up only drinking either a plain black tea with sugar or plain jasmine tea with sugar and occasionally some green tea. I love tea and I’ve always wanted to try a lot of different kinds of tea so a few days ago when I went to Coles (supermarket) with my parents, I saw that the Twinings teas were on sale for $1 a box! I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to start trying out different kinds of teas.

It was so tempting to get one in every single flavour. Though I swear there were about 20 flavours there. But after much consideration, I ended up with these 6 flavours:

  • Raspberry, Strawberry & Longanberry Flavoured
  • Cranberry & Pomegranate Flavoured
  • Lapsang Souchong
  • Pure Peppermint
  • Green Tea & Lemon Flavour
  • Lady Grey

I think that this is probably the best/cheapest way of trying out new tea flavours. I did go to Oriental Tea House before but the teas there go for around $10-$20/box (one flavour). I haven’t tried any of these teas before, nor am I affiliated with them.

Be sure to subscribe to my blog and wait for my review on the individual flavours!
