Stay Home: Self Beauty Care (Nail)

The series of nail stamp is available at 100 yen shop, Can Do.

Of course, the price for each stamp plates and stamps are JPY 100 (USD 1).

There are many attractive designs and I have been collecting stamp plates without any guilt.

I wanted to try it for long; however, I thought it could be difficult and hesitated to try.

Now it’s good time to try it.

First I apply base nail colour.

CHANEL Joyau

I remove a film from stamp plate.

Place a stamp and scraper

Select the design and apply nail colour that I want to stamp on the nail.

Use scraper to remove extra nail polish from the stamp plate.

Press the stamp on the stamp plate to transfer the design on the stamp.

Press the stamp on the nail to transfer the design on the nail.

CHANEL Pure White

To my surprise, it’s much easier to enjoy designing nails.

I will continue to enjoy designing my nails for seasonal events. Yeah.

Stay Home: Self Beauty Care (Facial)

I cannot make an appointment for my spa yet; therefore, I have to proceed with self beauty care at home.

I tried out this enzyme facial mask developed by Hollywood Cosmetics Co Ltd which I believe spa usually apply to me during my facial treatment.

I need to mix powder and cream before applying to my skin.

The sample packaging is quite unique; there is a divider and I push bottom part (Cream) to upper packaging (powder) to mix it.

I was amazed by the packaging because I already know it’s effectiveness on my skin. hahaha

Giving Choco a Bath

I regularly take Choco to grooming.

However, due to government’s declaration of the State of Emergency”, his grooming appointment got cancelled.

Choco looks scared of water so I thought he gets wild if I bath him; furthermore, I’m not used to giving a bath.

Nonetheless, I thought I should try it how it goes.

I bought a Shampoo and I already had the conditioner for his additional grooming treatment.

To my surprise, he behaved and looked enjoying taking a bath.

I troubled drying him because my hair dryer can get too hot for him.

I need to adjust the distance, power and switching hot and cool air.

I’m happy to know that he is okay with all processes and he actually looks enjoying it.

He looks so comfortable and looking at him makes me smile.

Let’s take a bath again!

Masks Have Arrived

I received this talk of town masks.

This is one of Prime Minister Abe’s counter measures against COVID-19: to deliver 2 masks per household.

Why 2 masks?

The average size of Japanese household is 2.47 persons.

Yes, our birth rate is low as 1.42 in 2018 (the latest statistics available).

I understand the budget is limited so it’s difficult to provide more; nonetheless, these masks are recyclable/washable.

The size of these masks are suited for women or children so it’s fine for me; however, I’m afraid these could be too small for men.

I still cannot find masks easily in the market so I’m thankful for these masks that I can get for free (well, technically paid by tax).

Stay Home: Home Theatre (The Phantom of the Opera)

My BFF informed me there would be free show on the Phantom of the Opera on YouTube to entertain people at home due to COVID.

I’ve seen it at the theatre before so I didn’t expect much.

But I was wrong, VERY WRONG!

I watched it on TV for a bigger screen and it was AWSOME.

I get excited as if I were at the theater.

I watched it twice.

The first show, I was overwhelmed and cried.

The second show, I paid attention to details.

Then, I found English subtitle appears on YouTube app on my iPhone.

I watched my favorite scenes with subtitles

This 25th Anniversary of the Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall show is special and MUST WATCH if you still have an access because it’s only available for 48 hours!

Well, I also enjoyed the additional surprise at very last very much so it is highly recommended to watch till very last.

Stay Home: Self Beauty Care (Scalp Care)

I introduced Plosiom Shampoo (middle) and Conditioner (left) before.

I could buy this series only at selected beauty salons.

Today, MTG, a Japanese beauty care maker, opened a retail store in Ginza on 8 November 2019 named Beauty Connection Ginza.

Now I could buy these freely at the Ginza shop.

When I visited the store, I found other products under the series.

This (right) caught my eyes; this is Cracking Serum for scalp care.

Well, this shampoo is shampoo; simultaneously, this shampoo is carbonated form, therefore, the form massage the scalp while washing my hair as I introduced before.

Shake and hold the bottle vertically, then spray and hold the serum with palm.
