Today is officially the most hydrated day of my life! I drank 1 and a half liters of water within half and hour and had to hold for 1 and a half hours before I can let it all out! It was such a torture. The reason behind all these drinking is because I had to get a pelvis scan done. The husband and I have been trying for a baby the past 2 years without success and we've finally decided to see a doctor to get some tests done. I'll be seeing the doctor in couple of weeks for the results. Hope everything is ok.

I went to restock my nail supplies yesterday and look what I've got! My first UV Lamp and Gel Set!







I also got some extra supplies, but the most exciting were the 3D gel, some coloured gel and a sliver coloured acrylic powder.



I tried the 3D gel today and it was amazing! I regret getting just 1 colour now :(
3D gels are so much easier to mould into shapes because they do not set unless you put them under the UV lamp. You can take your time to mould the gel to your desired shape and then set it under the UV lamp. With acrylic, you have to work fast. Once it dries up, your shape is fixed. Also, there is no smell at all as compared to using acrylic because there's no need to use the monomer liquid. I took off the lace on my first 3 fingers and tried painting the following 2 flowers using the 3D gel. (The lace came off easily after soaking in acetone for 10 minutes). Please excuse the mess around my fingers. I didn't have time to clean up the nail polish and dry skin because I was rushing to take these photos before the sun set. I hate taking photos using flash.









I'll try out the rest of my new purchase this weekend. Can't wait! :)

Thank you Ena, I hope to have good news too. I'll keep you posted.

As for the nails supply, I think I have more stuff than a nail salon hehe. Maybe I should follow your footsteps and start a business too!

Hi Victoria, I got mine from a friend who imports it from overseas. I think the company is called JD Pride. See this on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMJVwyIcwY4
