One of my recent customers had the most stubborn black head soldiers residing in her nose for almost 2 decades. If 5 years is long, how about a 20?

When I did facial for her, i was literally amazed by her little black heads’ strong will to survive.

ps: Do u see the tiny black hair sticking out too? Coz they have been here long enough, thus even the facial hair is black.

After about 15 mins fo battling, finally a significant improvement is seen

She was happy, I was even happier!!

She was perspiring from the tolerance of pain; i was perspiring from a strained back and a pair of overworked eyes. Pls let me know if there is a magnifying glass specially to view hidden black & white heads. hahahaha~

What I did:

1) Cleanse

2) Scrub (around 20 – 30 seconds) – over scrub may not be good. “sometimes less is more”

3) Tone

4) extraction (tip: sterilize extraction tool thoroughly; while extracting, standby a cotton soaked with toner to reduce reds or swelling in case)

5) if need to, use a tweezer to gently pluck those hardened seeds out. Tone again quickly

6) Nose will feel good and refreshed and most importantly clean.

7) Proceed with guasha and then a good pore cleaning masque.

“No pain No gain, same for almost everything out there including this”

Lovely nails experience ^^

July 22, 2010 Leave a comment

profile: Shop @ CKK Lot 1. Should be level 2. Shangri la Nails. Nails consultant: Xiao Xue

(interview with an original nail-consultant has been postponed as she has been ill; but in order to complete my nails article for month of July, i’ve found another reliable manicurist around; here’s the experience:

A picture paints a thousand words…Don’t u agree?? Here are some snap shots which I managed to take during my 1hour 20 mins of classic pedicure. It was AMAZING!!!!! Due to the nature of my work which requires lots of running about and outdoor movement, my poor little legs are ageing at an amazing rate!! Pls pardon some really frank pictures of a pair of hardworking legs. LOL!!! My advice to all possible human beings out there: A good pedicure and manicure once a month is a MUST!!! Some money just cannot be saved, including investments on our limbs!

Before: My pair of hardworking feet, piles of dead skin, crooked nails, blisters, wrinkles…can’t imagine its the feet of a young lady isnt it?

After: Lovely French Nails make my day!! Its definitely worth the pampering! Nail care like giving our nails a good facial.

Began with a good feet soak, the basin of warm water makes me happy ^^ almost immediately

Next: We do the filing of nails, shape them up.

Trimming of ugly cuticles & scraping of dried skin:

Buffering: (it feels kinda ‘shiok’ when u see all those little dirty stuff out, i felt ‘ detoxed’ & ‘cleansed’ at that moment frankly speaking. Or finally free-from- constipation kinda of feeling, LOL!!

Application of Cuticle Oil to moisturise :

Now come the foot Scrubbing!! (other steps included : foot massage)


Those whitish stuff are definitely not dandruff.

LOL!! it all came from my feet/ sole to be exact. Did not feel painful at all, more of TICKLISH!!

Her skills was sooooo gooooooodd to the extent, even my blister became milder.

torn blister (before)

Mended Blister (After)

PS: NO PHOTOSHOP corrections

Polish time ~ Base coat first, followed by nude pink then the white for the french and a final top coat. Additional Quick Dry of $2 can be added to speed up the process

VIOALA!!! Lovely pinky toes, Happy toes make their master happy too!

If u were one of the customers that day sitting next to me having pedi done as well, you’ll definitely be thinking i must crazy to photograph almost every step of the pedi. Haha!! Yes, i must be to do so. But thank goodness, Xiao Xue is one of my regular manicurists whom im really comfortable with (which is why she won a serangoon north regular despite shop is @ CCK), thus I decided to make the bold request of taking pictures. lol!!! Anyway, copyright is mine too.


Nails session to me have always been enjoyable. I just love french nails!!! Goes well with all skin tone and to all events.

Nail sessions (be it mani or Pedi) is like getting a detox done, you’ll feel lighter and definitely happier! Those soaking and scrubbing of feet soles stages are like facials for us, while nail polishing etc is like putting make up.

I has my reservations too when I was about to post these pics, afterall who will want to post pics of their ugly ungroomed pic. But @ the end of the day, it this can help benefit people, all worries are undone for.

Cheers to nails therapy!!

July Quote

Was clearing my room today and found this little note in one of my files…


People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self centered;

Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;

Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies;

Succeed anyway.

If you are honest and sincere, people may deceive you.

Be Honest and sincere anyway.

What you spend years creating , Others could destroy overnight,

Create Anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous;

Be Happy anyway.

The Good you do today

will often be forgotten.

Do Good anyway.

Give the best you have

and it may never be enough;

Give your best anyway.

–  Mother Theresa


At the end of the day,

we asked ourselves what we have done today…

give ourselves a good pat on the shoulder & a good rest for the night.

Nails & Girls

June: We have Brows & Guys ~

July: We shall have Nails & Girls ~

welcome july~~

Past June had been funnn!! how about yours? Tiny part of the reason is Raymond Lam has once again managed to make me stay glued to his latest TVB series where he played as a super smart handsome scientist who came from a well-to-do family background, solving mysterious cases using physics theory. Dream guy for almost every lady, except the part, (if you’ve watched the drama), you’ll see that sometimes raymond lam gets really technical and 101% involved in his work. No day no night type. Girls who like him really got to have the patience i guess~  I remembered I was a really poor student in this subject. Could barely made it through. Think I had a C5 for my O Levels, and yes, same grade for fellow chemistry too.  Doesn’t look very well for a triple science student. but thank god maths and the languages saved me to a below 12 aggregate. lol!!

Back to main highlight of the month! This July, I’ll be featuring on


yes thats right, girls’ favourite! Pedi & mani time!

and my favourite french!! ^^

WHy nails for this month? Simple. Don’t you think nails are as important as hair and make up? Its like when you have lovely face, sweet smelling hair but ugly broken nails, can you imagine? So sad… WHich is why, this month:  Im gonna focus on :

1. Nail Care

2. Nail Paint

Its like good SKincare then Make up. ^^

The above samples are all done by a lovely young lady boss who started on freelance basis during her earlier days in the industry & i’ll be posting an interview on her very very soon!! Started from a humble background, went through many many obstacles and challenges but today, she has a huge customer base, did many lovely bridal services and WOW! many clients of hers. Very positive feedbacks on her services and recently, she started her first shop in Bugis. Amazing!!

So Stay tuned!!
