Salon Vim x Sensual Nails

Thursday, August 01, 2013
Went to Salon Vim two days after I touched down after my trip to Europe!
I needed to colour my hair for my graduation ceremony at NUS, which was to be the following day.

I loved my blonde hair just because it was different & fun & I could actually carry it off (yes?)! 

But... time to go back to being a brunette. Actually I haven't had dark brown hair for like... almost 2 years I think? I had various shades of brown but they were never this dark! All started that fateful day I decided to buy a box of hair dye & DIY my hair for fun... LOL. Erm. #YOLO?

Light makeup (brown eyeliner, concealer & lipstick) that day:

(You don't know how hard it is to capture all of my hair in one photo)
(And my arms are already pretty long)

Hair is pretty healthy despite the ridiculous amount of bleaching & dyeing it has gone through!
Salon Vim has really taken good care of my hair (Y).

Soft hair & lightly blown curled ends.

They have extended their GSS promotion!
Valid until 15th August 2013 so hurry!

Also paid a visit to Sensual Nails Spa at Bishan!

Sensual Nails Spa 
Block 507 Bishan St. 11 #01-398 
(just walk straight down from KOI, past the playground)

Took some photos of the designs they have up as examples.
These designs are constantly updated! I always see the manicurists preparing new designs when I visit & they'll put them up for a short while & then replace them with new ones!

And if you don't follow me on Instagram (humph)... here's what I got:

Sparkly geometric nails! The glitter is so intense! ♡

You can find lots of designs uploaded on their Facebook page!
I usually go down with an idea in mind of what I want to do & show it to them :)

My nail design was actually inspired from theirs on the left! I like my nails to be uniformed however, so I didn't want to have half solid-coloured & half glitter-geometric. At the same time, all glitter would have been too much so we compromised & resulted with my design above :)

The one on the right is another recent take on the same design! I really like the intensity of all the glitter.

But if you'd like something girlier...

Their Cath Kidston design on the left has become really popular since it was first uploaded on their Facebook & Instagram! I've seen more uploads of similar designs since then.

And on the right is a sweet set of bridal nails featuring a tux & wedding gown.

A basic Gelish manicure costs $45 & lasts for up to a month (& more)!
The total cost will depend on the complexity of your design :)
