Hawaii here I come!

Woohoo, this is the 2nd time I will be going to Hawaii and I'm so excited! Although the trip is in August, I just couldn't wait to say it!

Since I literally have no idea what Hawaii has to offer (my last visit was 6yrs ago), I'd like to know from my readers: What do you suggest I should do there? Since my mom has been so busy lately, we can only travel for 5 days. With so little time, I'd like to know what I should do that will create a lifetime experience. Whether it's amazing restaurants, shopping paradises, beautiful beaches, fun games, I'm open for suggestions!

Thanks to all my readers, I'm so happy that I already have 3 followers! :)

NOTD + I need some help!

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Platinum

Wow, isn't this polish so pretty? It glows in the sun! The color is very silvery. :3
And the best thing is that I got this at my CVS for only $1.25! I love 75% off sales!

Also, need some help from some ladies. After these polishes dried, I noticed that it formed tiny bubbles! How should I get rid of them?

I've also always wondered...what's the point of using a base coat before applying polish? I see a lot of people do it in tutorials and I just don't understand why...

Thanks for reading!

My Drama Craze + NOTD


I've never been a huge fan of korean dramas, but this particular one has gotten me obsessed! The story, actors, scenery, music, etc. is AMAZING!!! I probably just love it since I haven't seen a decent drama for nearly a year (I watched it right after school ended), but nevertheless, I highly recommend this to everybody! Even if this is the first Korean or even Asian drama, you will instantly be hooked!

Here's a quick synopsis from dramawiki:

Set during the Joseon Dynasty, Yong acted as a hooligan in the marketplace by day but at night he was a thief who robbed corrupted government officials to give to the poor. After each robbery he left behind a painting depicting a plum tree branch to make his mark and was thus named Iljimae. His main purpose was not so much to rob but to search for the owner of a specially designed sword which he saw as a child was used to kill his father, a loyal subject of the emperor. Eun Chae is a government official's daughter who despite her upbringing has a lot of empathy towards the poor. She met Iljimae by chance and couldn't help admiring him for what he stood for even though she had never seen his face.

Amazing, right? *fangirl scream*

Now on to the NOTD...

This is by far my FAVORITE.POLISH.EVER. A while ago, I received this sally hansen hidden treasure polish from a fellow blogger and I can assure you, it is AMAZING!!! With 2 coats of sheer pink sh polish and 2 coats of hidden treasure, it looks like a wild pastel party on my nails! It even sparkles in the sun! And the best thing is, it didn't chip off a single bit for nearly a week!

whew, that was a long post!

Claire's Dream Catcher NOTD

Welcome to my new blog! (other blog here)

Here's a quick intro:

I'm a Japan obsessed 14yr old who loves fashion (lolita, punk, visual kei, street, gyaru, and more), music (hehe, my ipod has 100% Japanese songs), makeup (newest love!), and sewing (diy & crafts). I'm also a huge otaku, as in I like to spend my days watching animes and dramas. I still don't understand how I have perfect vision. xD

on to the NOTD...

I used only 1 coat at that time, but I added another coat later, which made it so much better. Funny thing is, I had no idea with was a popular chanel dupe when I bought it. What a great deal for only $1! :D
