3D Acrylic Gel Nails by E NailsSpa

Gel Nails with 3D acrylic nail art too! Back when i was a nail & hair model, due to the fact my nails were always short and ugly, they had to do the nail art on crazy ass long fake nails before sticking them unto mine but who knew that i would be here today flaunting some really cute and classy looking nails right? :)
Never actually paid much attention to my nails because of all the work i have to do, didn't see the point giving them their much deserved pampering. Also one of the main reasons why i malas* to take care of my nails because they somehow always miraculously manage to break despite the effort put into caring for them -_-

*lazy




Well, today i am going to be featuring my new gel nails and i do really hope they last as long as claimed (1 month on average), that includes the nail art not chipping lol. Sounds like a good challenge, so let's put them to the test shall we? :-P
If by end of August my nails are still good as new, then what they say about gel is true la lol, sorry i'm just skeptical as normal people's advises doesn't apply to me since my lifestyle is waaaaayyy different from an average person's daily life lol.


Cute, English set up & a hygienic environment

They have a whole wall of nail polishes with various shades to choose from, knock yourselves out ladies.


My nails were beautifully done at E Nailspa in Hartamas, great and convenient for those living around the area looking for a comfy place to get your pampering session done, i would recommend their place!
It's overall easy to find thanks to their accurate pin on the maps which you can find on their official Facebook page, just follow it and it will lead you directly to them. They have parking provided below basement of their salon, so you don't have to worry about looking for one around the area. Another option is you can park at the open space beside wisma rapid or souled out's parking area as they are less than 3 minutes walk from E Nailspa.



First impression of the place, it is really clean and well ventilated despite being in such a small enclosure, you won't get a wiff of those nasty nail polish smells upon entering as that is a NO.1 turn off for me with my current condition!
There's a reason why i always ask my manicurist if their product is safe to use on pregnant clients but for my case it wouldn't matter too much since i don't do these too frequently anyway but always better to be safe than sorry. I was assured by the owner of E Nailspa, Emanda that they have a couple of regular expecting clients who often get their gel nail fix here, so it is a relief to hear that lol i mean i do have a few friends who also did them frequently while they were pregnant but everything turned out fine.

I was given a face mask by Emanda as she understood my concern on the nail polish fumes, thumbs up for being so considerate!

It's usually the strong smell emitted by the nail polishes both normal and gel that tends to make me feel sick despite going pass the morning sickness stage, probably just my senses are extra heighten at this point and seriously who the heck likes the smell of those solvents??
In case you guys aren't aware what are nail polishes made off, please go google lel at least get yourself educated on stuff you'll be putting on your body. Not to make you guys paranoid freaks but it's always good to be knowledgeable than ignorant, all things can be done just in MODERATION.


My Manicurist & pedicurist works really fast and the outcome of it is perfect!
No edges missed, everything is well balanced. And the chairs were really comfy, lost count of how many times i nodded off during those 2 hours lol.

Here comes the hardest part when it comes to getting your hair or nails done, "WHAT COLOR?"
Spent a good whole 30 minutes (while they were prepping my nails) trying to decide that on the types of colors and designs i wanted for my mani & pedicure lol, it was seriously a tough question as all the designs and colors shown to me has its own unique attraction flare T.T
How i wish i had enough nails to paint every single color on lol but that would be freaky as i would be a monster filled with fingers nails all over my body *gross* lol wtf.
In the end i needed a lil bit of help deciding and think Emanda saw who perplexed i was trying to decide and she told me that i am able to mix the colors and designs, what they have shown on the tray are just examples which customers can customized the colors as pleased.
Another problem settled for fickle minded people like me lol.
So i have decided to mix both my favorite colors together, you guys could have guessed it by now lol thanks to my awesome hairstylists, i have somehow developed a liking towards pastel hues especially bubblegum pink & lilac (just like my Christmas 2015 hair!).


For the price of basic nail art (without gel base, for those includes additional charges), RM90 seems really reasonable! 



Now here comes the gross part of the whole experience lol, i first of all would like to apologize to my pedicurist who so happened to be doing my foot spa but it was cut short due to unexpected water shortage *dang it*, so she only washed my feet and gave it a very good filing to remove all those black dried skin around my soles. THAT sight alone was enough to make anyone puke, sorry dear!
It really hereditary, the thick dried cracked soles has been in my family since god knows which generation and it also could be from the fact it developed from those "kaki ayam kampung days", in order for our feet to be protected from the rocks & sand, our body naturally develops a thicker layer of skin to protect it. So no matter what i do, it's still going to have layers of dried cracked skin building on top of each other :-/

I mean, occasionally i do wear those foot mask that makes your feet peel like mad over the span of a week, but didn't have the time to do so lately as i am rarely at home, but after this scrubbing session with E Nailspa, think my feet is going to look this clean and smooth for the next couple of weeks!
Of course, have to be diligent in using lotion as well to prevent the skin from cracking la.


Washing ze dirty feet, even i am grossed out by them despite my efforts of scrubbing them daily with my hands :-/

Selecting the right shade for my toenails is rather crucial, as i know darker colors tend to make my feet look very "aged" thanks to the protruding veins and bones lol, but i did wanted to try their latest magnetic coated nail polish as it is the next upcoming nail trend according to the boss of E nailspa, i've seen many trend on instagram but never once i came across this cool coating which gives you nail a "marbling" like illusion when seen from different angles.
Plus the finishing is super glossy, most definitely to catch anyone's attention from a far lol, i did mine on top of blue nail polish but the effect looks much better on darker shades like black, brown, burgundy, etc as it seems to have a magnetic attraction towards those colors compared to lighter ones.

This special nail polish comes in 2 shades, silver & gold and both looks equally good on black base!
Such clean pretty feet!
Ignore the deformed looking feet structure, caused from wearing too much high heels for long periods of time lel.


This unique color on my toes are from their latest Mood changing magnetic 3D cat eye gel color


So have you guys stared enough at my feet yet? lol, hope no one here has feet fetish ya, if not i'll run far far away from freaking out :-P
Now moving on to my nails which i am sure all of you are dying to see the final outcome of my mix & match session with my manicurist. Since i was so curious to try out 3D nail art on my real nails for the very first time, so you can imagine my "jakun" feeling la. Oh, can't believe i forgot to mention something important! Remember that i mentioned above about breaking 3 nails?
It was just recently so they obviously needed time to grow back, but at that moment of time i was stuck with 3 really short nails that could easily ruin the whole nail art.
Thanks to Emanda's suggestion on getting extension to even out the nails was pure genius and it's my first time doing them too, to some this might be a common thing but to me i am constantly amused as i have been living under a rock for far too long lol!
Emanda was really helpful in answering my inquires, offering her professional advice and suggestions, so if you have tons of questions like me feel free to ask her.

My whole session took about 2 hours plus minus, didn't feel it was too long because of the comfy environment and by the time i left i was the last customer >.<
Honestly i do feel weird typing and doing stuff with my 3D nails getting in the way, makes me wonder how some people with longer nails do it lol, guess it takes time getting used to!


This is literally FOOL PROOF, i find it so hard to believe that my nails are actually fakes but it's so well done till i forget that they are just extensions lol
It only costs RM36 to add on 3 extensions.

The original colors were blue & white but i selected bubblegum pink & lilac to go with the rose design instead, thank you E Nailspa for being so accommodating to my special requests!
Reminds me of those English Vintage porcelain teacups :)
For those curious about the pricing, the basic Gel manicure base was RM 90 (lilac + pink) with 3D Nail Art was an additional RM 120 and the gel pedicure was RM 110+ 10 (Feet scrub).


The roses are so beautiful! Can't stop touching them (sounds like molester already lel), it's nice to have that 3D effect on top of your nails for a change than the usual glossy finishing. Just hoping that my nails would stay this pretty always!


Great News for E Nailspa customers, get 5% off your next treatment when you refer a friend to the salon.

So hope this review would spark your interest to try them out someday ladies, for appointments make sure to call them up beforehand to avoid walk in disappointments. They are opened 7 days a week from 11am - 8pm (last call at 6pm) on Monday to Saturdays, meanwhile 11am - 6pm on Sundays.

LilParasiteTales | ANGRY & DISAPPOINTED

Beneath all those smiles is a really really pissed pregnant lady.

Here at the 5th month of my pregnancy, instead of celebrating the milestone..i am still wondering if all of this was a huge mistake. Just recently the father of lil parasite asked me, is it alright if he got himself another partner. Anyone's reaction is to stab that useless fucker in the face a million times over, first of all you already left me with a burden made for 2 people, the amount of pain i have to go through whenever i am reminded that this child inside of me is yours as well, and for all you know it might strongly resemble you (who knows), and i have to live with that reminder the rest of my life while you can go frolic around looking for new companions. 
But then again, i can't stop you for wanting to do anything with your life except hope that karma shall hit you soon enough (sooner the better). A coward like you who promised to at least have the courtesy to inform your mother but never did, while imagine the amount of disappointment i had to put my own mother through when i first told her the news but you couldn't man up (wait, men are weak & useless, they should grow vaginas instead since that's tougher) to tell yours.

I am just so ANGRY & DISAPPOINTED.
with both him & myself. 

It's like my whole life was nothing but disappointments because the universe only allows me to cross paths with idiots like these. I don't need them in my life and yet they always play a huge role in screwing it further (naturally).
Lil Parasite, i am sorry that you are a partial product of a useless faggot and i can understand if one day you decide to meet him and kill him on my behalf instead. I'll forgive and love you no matter what because that ass doesn't deserve to live anyway.
Just like the majority of his population which tend to be useless & selfish too, just take this as a life lesson to never grow up like him, instead make it your mission to wipe them off the face of the earth.

I know you can hear me well and clear my dear parasite, even feel what i am feeling all this while. The long nights i cry myself to sleep when there is no one to comfort me, nights when sacrifice my sleep to work non stop because i needed the money to raise you, when i am constantly thinking that i should have aborted you instead but didn't because your kicks always responded to those tyrannical thoughts.

It's like inside of me you were telling me so badly that you want to live but i am not giving you a chance to do so if i had rid of you from the start.

What kind of terrible mother i am to have such thoughts especially when i told myself from the start that i will keep you till the very end, guess it's just human nature to be scared and have all those irrational thoughts surfacing at your most vulnerable mental state. As much as i tried not to let them affect me but it can't be helped, i tried. I seriously did.
But i am still human with emotions and needs as well just like everyone else except i have no where to pour them out too except to you whom might be sick and tired to hear my cry all the time. Sorry.
Wish i could be a happy, carefree mom who sings & talks to her child daily assuring it that everything will be alright because for my case it's NEVER going to be fine.

Many times i envied my friends who's life is just so perfect in every way, blessed with looks, talents, great career, wonderful supportive partners and last but not least beautiful babies to complete their lives. They might have couple squabbles here and there but at the end of they day neither of them walked away from the responsibility of raising the child, having that alone is already considered DAMN LUCKY compared to the rest of us who falls into the highest percentage of "ordinary people" category who don't get such luxury in life.
But what's the point, life is never fair to begin with- The rich gets everything without lifting a finger while the poor works their asses off to meet ends but never gets anywhere.

Don't bother telling me to go for counseling just because i have a history of severe depression which means i am prone to it during my pregnancy and postpartum depression. I might just stab those useless counselors in the face for pretending to give those "I know it all, I've been in your shoes bullshit" when all they ever do is stick their faces into books. Why don't you try being depressed for REAL before trying to so call help others with their condition which is deemed as a disease by society.

Coming to terms with my problems isn't the problem, i have accepted the fact of my actions and these are the consequences but what i couldn't accept is how HEARTLESS can one be.
And me being a gullible idiot who always believe there is good in people despite what others say, it's just that they are not given the chance to prove themselves otherwise before being judged. You have no idea how many chances i have given these type of people but again and again without fail they prove themselves exactly what society condemns them to be. Maybe it's about time i should just give up trying to see the good in others because it's just a waste of time and effort at the end of the day, gives me unnecessary stress only.


Is it wrong for me to curse my ex partner to a life of solidarity for what he has done, that he does't deserve happiness for making me suffer alone in this parenthood journey?
tempting isn't it?

"Repay no one evil for evil, but give thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all. If possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all. Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God, for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” To the contrary, “if your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink; for by so doing you will heap burning coals on his head.” Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."-Romans 12:17-21

My religion (well, technically it's my parent's) tells me to forgive my enemies as they do not know any better  but as a grown adult the "not knowing better excuse" seems invalid there.
Well..he does what he wants to with his life but at the end of the day what goes around, comes around and by then i just hope it's hundredfold. Just a reminder for all men with dicks out there, take responsibility for your shits instead of taking the easy way out because not everyone is as nice as i am. Really.
Being a nice person always have their disadvantages, everyone steps on you thinking that it's alright because you'll forgive them but hey, why don't i step on your face for once instead?

There's so much more to rant but i am just so tired right now to even type anymore, guess i'll call this a night and continue some other time.




Angry, Disappointed & Bloated,

My favorite line to say lately is- "Don't say i did't share about it ah!"
Lol.


XOXO,

AtoZ Computer Media- Malaysia's Leading One Stop Store

Hey look, same printer model on AtoZ!


Shopping for tech stuff, how many of you like me HATES going to Lowyat to search for tech stuff, let see see a show of hands lol, first of all the traffic from PJ to KL on weekends are terrible even when it's not raining, 2nd is finding parking without it costing a bomb if you are planning to stay in KL the whole day (ugh), 3rd-ly the annoying sales people in lowyat who act like uncivilized banshees who cat call or "amoi" "amoi" you which gets seriously annoying especially when it's almost every single shop on every level that does that :-/

And when you have bright colored hair like mine, it attracts unwanted attention from all the hooligans lepak-ing around town,  being harassed verbally constantly isn't fun at all even though some of you might disagree with me and say "just ignore" but put yourself in my shoes everyday before you speak!
That's why i prefer to shop online these days, saves me the public harassment, tiring long drive into town, expensive tolls & parking.

For a tech noobie like me, finding the right kind of gadget is usually a feat because i can't tell heads or tails of it but all i know is i want something that functions well without me throwing it out the window lol you have no idea how unlucky i am with gadgets most of the time. It's like this saying from my Malay friends- "Tak ada Jodoh", something like "Not Meant To Be" lol wtf.
So expecting me to visit every floor in lowyat plaza, you'll guaranteed to see me leave empty handed after a whole day because there are just too many things to compare and browse, if i wasn't there with a friend who at least knows their stuff i could have been one of those gullible victims of these verocious sales people. No one likes to be bugged when they are leisurely browsing ya'know, it's a total TURN OFF!

Explains why I've been procrastinating for such a long time to get my very own printer despite needing it so badly for work purposes. 
The pain of having to drive all the way back to my parent's place in the middle of the night just to make an urgent print because all shops are closed & my area doesn't have a printing shop. It's been like this since i moved to PJ as back in college the area i studied in had tons of printing services even 24 hour ones because it was a student area and you know by the time we finish an assignment it's already 4-5am right before needing to hand it over at 8am.
How i wish PJ area is like that too but sadly no unless you are living near colleges lol.

But thank the heavens for listening to my needs lol, just recently a friend offered to loan me his extra printer which he could not sell off due to wrong purchase, instead of collecting dust at least it's being used- according to him. I've been rejoicing ever since because it has a scanner too, so i can now scan my sketches and edit them on A.I for designing which i couldn't do so before that. Thank you so much! Guess i was too excited to use my new toy until i was wondering why nothing came out of the printer after a couple of tries lol.



And I thought getting a printer will solve all my printing problems but guess being a ditzy girl, i was wrong about that assumption lol.

PAPER. 

I FORGOT,

FRESH NEW STACKS OF A4 PAPER.





Yep, i totally forgot to get them so now the printer is useless without paper! And since i am busy with work to drop by stationary stores to buy a new packet of A4 paper, my new printer is currently sitting at the corner collecting dust lel. 

Genius kan?

But here is when i found out about www.atoz2u.coma website that caters to printing supplies, whether it's the printer itself you need or just paper and ink cartridge AtoZ has it all.
Since they are an online shop, the joy of ordering from home & waiting for it to arrive at your doorstep is so much fun than getting stuck in town XD



Here on AtoZ they have quite a large variety of printing supplies and carries almost every single brand you can imagine! Whole lowyat plaza cramped into one website! Just like their tagline-
"Malaysia's Leading One Stop Store".
Just navigating around itself already feels like im exercising (my eyes lol) none stop scrolling from page after page to see what else i could add into my cart before checking out. They do have a search box to narrow down your searches but of course like i said "i'm a special case" as most of the time i don't really know what i want so that's how i end up spending more time on searches than comparison >.<

But at least now i don't have to deal with anymore harassment, and i can restock my printing needs without giving myself the excuse such as "no time" or "busy" since all i need to do is add into cart & checkout :-P
Those who are looking for office supplies also don't need to search high & low for units that fits the office's budget as AtoZ promises to offer the best deals in town inclusive of original manufacturer warranty & all + delivery to your office's doorstep within same working day if you are within their "Same-Day Delivery Coverage Areas" or else the usual 3-5 working days.


First time seeing a supply shop website that offers SAME DAY delivery as most eCommerce sites usually takes 5-7 working days to deliver which is kinda standard. 


3 TOP REASONS TO SHOP ON ATOZ
  1. Convenient- Everything found under one roof without leaving home
  2. Efficient- Delivered same day or within 3-5 days  
  3. Reliable & Trustworthy- AtoZ carries reputable brands with warranties 


So what are you waiting for? Save precious time, save money (since the recent 150% increase on parking fees) and get more work done too. Head over to www.atoz2u.com



XOXO,
