PeriPera polish review

Posted by Suteisi ♥ at 4:16 PM 2 comments

I heard of Korean cosmetics brands
PeriPera a few weeks ago. Their products looked pretty standard of an asian brand to me, until I came across their nail polishes. Cute bottles, gorgeous pastel colors and most of all, the tag like "1 coat, 1 minute, 1 week". Apparently these little beauties only take 1 coat, dry within 1 minute and will last up to a week. Instantly I wanted to try them! I'd wanted pastel colors for quite some time and never found shades that I liked until I stumbled upon PeriPera so even without the tag line I probably would have bought these.

Vanilla lime, vanilla sky, vanilla peach and vanilla pink.

I tried all of them on and my favorite color definitely is vanilla lime.

Vanilla sky and vanilla lime on my toes.

But I was disappointed because their tag line really didn't translate well, not on me anyway.
Maybe my nails are too long/large, but one coat definitely wasn't enough. I had to apply 3 coats to get the opaque color I wanted. I didn't take long for them to dry, but with 3 coats it was easy to smudge, I smudged a few of them, so I had to take the time to let the coats dry in between each other. And they definitely didn't last 1 week. More like 2 days. How disappointing... Sigh.

Vanilla pink with chips on the 2nd day.

All in all, I love the colors and will be using them again for sure, but the whole "1 coat, 1 min, 1 week" thing didn't work for me.



Have you heard of PeriPera and their polishes? Have you tried them? Did you like them?


Note: I was not sponsored for this post, I purchased these polishes with my own money and reviewed these on my own time. This is just my opinion.

Breaking Dawn Part 1

Twilight Saga : Breaking Dawn Part 1
Suteisi rating: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥+

Breaking Dawn part 1 follows Bella as she finally gets married to Edward Cullen. They have a perfect wedding and then go on a perfect honey money... that is, until Bella realizes she missed her periods which makes her pregnant, with god knows what.

Being a fan of the books I was really looking forward to this one, I didn't really care for Twilight and New Moon. Eclipse was fine but it really didn't do the book any justice. I went in after reading many reviews of disappointed fans, so I braced myself to be disappointed also. I could have not been more wrong! I LOVED it!! I thought it was PERFECT! (yes, perfect!) I loved every bit and pieces of it, and will probably be going to see it again until it comes out. My only disappointment is that we have to wait 1 year for Part 2! The acting was way better than in any of the previous movies. I was worried with Taylor Launter who hadn't really been much more than just a pretty face with a ton of muscles. Even though it probably could have been better, I believe him and felt his emotions (especially that part where he cries, OOPS SPOILER! Yeah I cried too).

I thought Kristen and Edward could have had a bit more chemistry but I was so roped into the story and what was going to happen next that it didn't really matter to me in the end. Rosalie's hair looked bad as usual, no surprise with that. Emmett was just as handsome as I remembered him. Bella's father was just too cute. And well, the wolves were OK. I don't like the actress they picked for Leah, but I don't like Leah as a character anyway, so I guess she was doomed to begin with in my book.


I don't want to reveal too many details here, go see it for yourself. I loved it and I will be seeing it again. I can't wait for Part 2! The best is still to come!!




What did you think of Breaking Dawn Part 1?

A busy bee... doing nails!

It's already mid-November! Where have I been?

Pursuing a part-time career. Something I've wanted to do for several years now but due to various circumstances such as time, schedule and funds, I was never able to take on the proper steps toward one of my dreams. That of being a nail technician!

I started my training 2 weeks ago, and it's gone over very well!

My starter kit...

What's inside...

For a starter kit I think it's very complete, I'm really happy with it! The only thing I don't like is brush, I'll have to get me a better one.

Last night I got to do my first set of nails, under supervision. My sister was kind enough to be my model / victim.


Tadah!!


What do you think?

Not too shaby for a very 1st time, don't you think?
