Nail Polish: Bobbie Classy and Explosive

I spotted these nail colors at Savemore Supermarket while having my weekly grocery. Because I am a very big fan of anything of “green shade” nail polish, I grabbed one right away. A green shade from Bobbie (Explosive) is a perfect catch.But standing by her side is a Classy shade of purple, this one also caught my attentionhence, these two pretties became part of my nail polish collection.

A few days later, it’s time to try them on. This time around, I asked my helper to do the manicure (yep! She does have the skill, too) and I did the polish application (since she had to sleep early). The first nail polish to try, of course, is the Bobbie Explosive.


I decided not to trim my nails too short. Because I know that Bobbie Explosive will look great on medium length nails. I applied them slowly but surely trying not to make a mess. With one coating, it was pale and uneven, thus, I needed to apply up to 3 coatings to get full coverage.

See, how attractive this nail color on my nails. And the bonus part it, it dried up quickly than expected. I definitely have a new favorite right now. (Pardon, I'm just sooo in love with green)

 Three days later, I decided to change my nail color, hence I chose the other Bobbie nail polish that I have recently purchased. Bobbie Classy is in a darker side of purple. A rich grape color is the correct description. Like the Explosive, I had to apply it up to 3 coatings to obtain full opacity.

These are locally manufactured nail polish, and very much affordable. Though I seldom get them because it takes time for them to dry, especially when I plan to do nail art, but for these, I think I made the right decision to add them in my stash.

DIY Sewing Project: Boy’s Shorts

After I sew curtains, I think it’s time to try making simple shorts for my boy with the polyester cotton cloth that I have purchased. My sister-in-law told me that shorts is one easy project to sew. I think I had to try and see how easy it can be.

I chose one of my son’s shorts and used as a guide to create a pattern. Draw the outline on the back side of the cloth and cut it accordingly. I am checking and analyzing from time to time how the sample shorts was sewn.

Sewing my first shorts, was a little easier and a little hard for me, with trials and errors, plus patience, I was able to figure it out and finally have done it. Yippee! Congratulations to myself!

I am looking forward to making pyjamas for my girl. J Until next time!
