Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

NOTD: YSL-inspired French tip

This is what my vanity table looks like right now. I know, it's messy! Even though our helper cleans it up immaculately, I always trash it after putting on a full face of makeup. I need more space or I need to get rid of my stuff. Leaning towards the former, I love my stuff!

You can see One Day by David Nicholls there. I read it last Sunday, and all I can say is if you haven't read it yet, you should! It's one of the best books I've had in a while. It's a story about two people's paths crossing in a span of twenty years - like 500 Days of Summer, it's not a love story, but a story about love. The ending is quite painful, but I love how the author made it bittersweet.

So anyway, moving on to the kikay stuff! I did my nails today because I'm going to a dinner tonight. I only intended to wear the NYX Girls nail polish in Pacific Blue, but I suddenly had a brilliant (though not-so-original) idea: what if I do a French tip using another color?

Sorry, the nails are a bit messy. It's my first time to do a French tip and I wasn't able to clean the polish meticulously as I was hurrying. I used Pacific Blue as base then added a Caronia nail polish in Dare as the tip. I like the combination because the two textures - cream and frost - presented a stunning contrast. Also, Dare is an electric blue, but it ended up as an aqua blue on top of the base.

This French tip is inspired by YSL's 2010 Fall-Winter nail look. Gorgeous right? I want to do gold and purple next!
