Paint those nails like a pro from the comfort of your own home! Leave ’em looking oh so shiny and bright. Today, I’ll let you in on my latest nail care treats so that you, too, can perfect your DIY mani-pedis whenever you want, however you want. Read on.
To be honest, I don’t consider myself high maintenance. I only grow my nails and get my mani-pedis when I’m off to a special occasion. In fact, I can be especially stingy when it comes to nail care, mostly because I usually end up chipping my nicely done nails after finishing a few chores, playing a musical instrument, or even just (un)hooking my bra. Nothing breaks any girl’s heart more than the sight of damaged nail polish. I’ve had my nail polish and heart broken enough to tell you this.
I remember treating my nails to a more expensive alternative, such as gel manicure, but boy was it difficult to remove. After hassling myself at attempting to remove the gel paint on my own, I eventually gave up and returned to the same salon just to have the polish removed.
It seems I had lost all hope in achieving perfect, chip-proof nails sans the hassle until…
Althea Korea introduced me to Nail it Box! Imagine a box full of With Shyan products. It’s precisely what nail lacquer dreams are made of, and more. The moment I saw that Nail It Box Promo via Althea Philippines, I knew I had to get myself one, pronto. Without batting an eyelash, I clicked my way through purchasing that Althea box, among a bunch of other Korean beauty products (which I’ll get to later on).
By the way, all of my Althea orders took ten (10) working days to arrive – just as I had expected.
Let’s get to the part that I’m most excited to tell you about. Ladies, say hello to my new With Shyan collection, which comes with the following:
Nine Vibrant 15ml Nail Lacquers
I love this bold set of colours (from left to right):
- Green Latte
- Green Leaf
- Reddish Purple
- Lapis Lazuli
All of these bottles come with quality brushes that glide perfectly upon application.
15ml Coat and Peel Off Bottles
Perfect your nail polish with these coats and peel off products. These babies can turn amateurs into pro nail artists. I’ve got 15ml bottles of With Shyan Filler Base Coat, Peel Off, and UV Gel Top Coat. The applicators glide smoothly, and the liquid dries much faster than I’d imagined.
Nail Art and Care
Althea was generous in adding more items into this special box. It also came with three Favourite stickers, a Genie sticker set, hot pink toe separators, nail art sponges, a Ruby pusher, a floral paper nail file, and a nail polish remover. Sweet! I’m not a huge fan of nail stickers, really, but why not?
Let’s get swatching, baby!
I swatched three nail lacquers (Reddish Purple, Lapis Lazuli, and Green Leaf) just for fun.
I am definitely loving how loud and proud these hues are. So far, so good.
My nails are crying happy tears right now, thanks to this full With Shyan set. For a little more than Php 1,000, it seems I won’t be heading to any nail salon for an entire year.
I hope Althea x With Shyan will feature more sets of nail lacquers – preferably the darker, matte, or metallic shades – in the near future ’cause I’ll be hoarding a set or three, that’s for sure.
Get yours via Althea Philippines today and give your nails the pampering they need and deserve.
