I purchased this nail kit (3 nail polishes of green, red and glitters: all sparkly)
from aritaum right after I saw this was only 10,000 Korean won or $10
reading it in instyle magazine & on twitter @aritaum_story

this kit is one of the limited editions came out in just about
right time for Christmas & gifts to those you love
when I saw the glitter one in the middle
I thought of miu miu  heels right away :)

트위터랑 인스타일에서 보자마자
각각 만원인줄 알았는데 3개에 세트로 만원에
리미티드 에디션 한정으로 나왔다는 소식보고
바로 달려가서 사왔어요 :)
색 너무 예쁘죠? 그린과 레드도 펄감이 살짝 들어잇어요
글리터 보는 수간 미우미우힐이 생각나는건 왜일까요

there are endless choices how you can play around with this kit
but for now I'll show you the first look/attempt I did with these polishes
next time, I'm sure I'll be more skilled and make it
possible to do some drawings or make the look prettier!

이 키트만 있으면 정말 다양한 방법으로 계속 활용하실수있을거에요
첫 try 한거니 지금 올리는 룩들은 감안하고 봐주세요 ㅎ
다음번엔 조금더 스킬이늘어있을테니
그림을 그려보든, 어쨌든 더 예쁘게 해볼게요 :]

I added one more polish from Hera (also Korean brand,
same company as the aritaum)
it's pearly brown

헤라에서 막 구입해왔던 브라운인데
오묘하게 펄감이 들어가있는 폴리쉬와 함께 사용해보았어요!

drops to show you how they appear

색상을 자세히 보여드리고 싶어서 몇방울 떨어뜨려봤어요

on left hand
thumb: painted red on bottom first, green on top half, put glitter across
index, middle, pinky: just painted the shades alone in red, green, glitter
ring: brown + added glitter drops trying to make them appear as like the stones

왼손에 모습이에요
엄지: 먼저 레드를 밑에 반 칠하시고, 그린 위에 남은 반, 그다음
반짝이부분을 중앙에 선을 긋듯이 그었어요
똑바른 라이너가 아니라서 오히려 굵게 울퉁불퉁해도
둘째, 셋째, 새끼 손가락: 그냥 한색상으로 발라주기만 함.
넷째 손가락: 헤라 브라운색상 바르고, 반짝이를 살짝 떨어뜨리는 느낌으로
묻혔는데요 반짝이 스톤 붙였다는 느낌 나게 해주려고
나름 상상하고 해본...ㅠㅠ

on right hand
thumb & pinky appeared the same as the left one
and everything else on ring, middle and index fingers,
I applied the shades and painted in french with glitter

엄지와 새끼 손가락은 똑같은 모습이구요
나머지 손가락에는 다 칠한 다음 프렌치를 반짝이로 해주었어요

also today I got the final stamps (17th)
to receive free diary (with along 3 coupons; these were what I waited for haha)

ordered iced toffee nut latte

그리고 오늘 아이스 토피넛라떼를 시킴으로 17번쨰 스탬프를 채우고
다이어리 받았어요
사실 뒤에 3쿠폰들이 제일 기다렸던 것들이라는 ㅎㅎㅎ

added a new tail on my Coco Hallowin navy & pink bag

제 네이비&핑크 코코할로윈 백에
겨울에 맞춰 여우털 꼬리를 달아봤어요 :)

wish list (& a guide to you!)
from the photos I took while I was reading instyle Korea December issue of 2011
*therefore all photos credit to instyle korea!

miu miu furry bag & pink bag (both the largest photos one) both around $1600-1700
fresh roll-on (little over $30), etude house pink solid fragrance $9
the body shop glitter spray (also fragranced I think) a little less $30
Fendi business card case for men (in Green) a little over $200
