Over at Couture Nails, they take great care in hygiene. For each new customer, they will use newly sanitized tools. Tools are stored in a special sterilized pouch after being sanitized. I am very sure they are the first nail salon that is having this practice.

Couture Nails is also my new sponsor for Manicure and Pedicure services. The nail artist there are capable to reproduce almost all designs requested as long as they have the supplies. I strongly recommend my nail artist, Aini who was also my previous manicurist. 🙂

Here’s the designs that she did for me on my first visit! Dotted floral matched with hot pink polish on the toes. toesfloral

I did acrylic extensions on my nails as they were quite short, followed by gelish nail art. I showed her a design and gave her the free reign to improvise the design. And this is the outcome which I really love. There’s the flowers I wanted, with my favourite pastel colours and there’s also bling and ribbons!

NoQ Store Asia – Buy Books Online!

I might not look like one but I’m a huge bookworm! I loved reading a lot and I pride myself as a speed reader. Sadly, I’m ashamed to say that I read a lot lesser these days as I can’t seem to find time to drop by the library or the book store.

There’s always E-Books but I’m the traditional kind of person who prefers to flip through pages. And I love the smell of books. Hahaha.

As an avid online shopper, I was pleasantly surprised to know that Times Publishing has an Online book store. NoQ Store Asia has up to 14 million titles at very attractive prices. And they actually offer free delivery within Singapore with a minimum order of $25 which is pretty easy to hit.

I was given a $40 voucher to get some books and I managed to get 5 books! I did topped up extra $1 plus though. There are books that are as low as $3 plus to the more expensive titles.

Have never read a Nicholas Sparks title so I thought I should get one and check out what’s the hype. Cecelia Ahern is one of my favourite authors and the other 3 books are random purchases which I think would be interesting.

Other than fiction titles, they have many other books under many other categories. From children books to self help books to travel guides. There are even reviews and ratings from other readers to help you gauge if the book is worth the buy.

Check out NoQ Store now to start online shopping for books now!

Happy reading!

L’Oreal Paris Gelmatic Eyeliner

Among the various options of liners out there, I personally prefer the pencil liners as it is the easiest to use though it’s not the best of the liners out there. I always have a love and hate relationship with liquid liners as I often smudge it before it dries out. I love gel liners but it’s a hassle to be applying it with a brush from the pot. Hence, it’s perfect to me when the beauty companies start producing gel liners in pencil/crayon form!

L’Oreal Paris Singapore have recently launched the Gelmatic Pen Super Liner in our local shores. The kind team have sent me 3 out of the 6 shades that have been launched in Singapore.

From left to right, I’ve the liners in Turquoise, Silver and Black. These liners are automatic, meaning you don’t have to sharpen them. They are also retractable so you don’t have to worry if you turn out too much length. (Yes, I’ve used non-retractable brow/liner pens before and it’s annoying when you turn out too much product.)

Here’s a swatch of the liners! I like the Turquoise, it give the whole look a pop of color and make it more fun! The silver and black are nicely pigmented too. It is stated that the Gelmatic liners are waterproof and smudge proof up to 12 hours of wear.

I’ve worn it a couple of times and I can say they are pretty much water and smudge proof but not up to 12 hours. The color do fade off after some 6 hours of wear and can smudge a little on oily lids like mine. Application wise, it’s not that smooth but not an issue. But I would say this is one of the better gel liners pen I’ve used in the market. I rate it a 3.5/5. gelmatic swatch

Available in 6 shades(Black, Brown, Gold, Silver, Blue and Turquoise), the Gelmatic Crayon Automatic Liners are retailing at SGD18.90 at Watsons, Guardian, Sasa and selected departmental stores.

IPL Facial Treatment at Nouri

IPL can be used for various treatments. Not only hair removal, IPL can also be used to treat facial problems. Nouri provides IPL for the face too to solve your skin problems!

Some of the uses of IPL are:

  • Skin Lightening for Face
  • Wrinkles and Fine Lines
  • Pigmentation
  • Freckles
  • Post Acne Scars and Pit Holes
  • Clearing up of Acne
  • Aiding in the Reproduction of Collagen

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

After a consultation with Valerie, I was prescribed to go through their Classic Facial (which I will be talking about in a separate post) and also the IPL Facial Treatment.

The IPL Facial Treatment includes cleansing and exfoliation before administering the IPL shots. Valerie will adjust the frequency each session as per your comfort. Usually for the first IPL session, she will use a lower frequency and increase it the next. This is to make sure we feel comfortable throughout the treatment. Pain is minimal though you will feet a hot sensation during the treatment.

After all IPL treatments, it is important to apply the Anti Inflammatory Gel to sooth the skin as our skin will tend to be more tender after treatments.

I’ve done 4 IPL sessions so far and I noticed that the skin became brighter and texture feels better too. My acne scars are lighten by a little and I’m confident that they will be gone with a few more sessions.

Interested in the IPL facial treatments? Contact Valerie via SMS/Whatsapp at 91994189 to know more!

Nouri is currently running huge promotions on IPL treatments! Do check out Nouri’s FB page for more detailed information on their promotions!
