I Went To Hong Kong and All I Bought Was A Crate of Nail Polish

Hello all! I spent a fantastic weekend in Hong Kong and stayed at the lovely Peninsula Hotel. I’m a sucker for classical Asian colonial architecture and this place didn’t disappoint! I’m not really used to people turning down the covers and offering to unpack for me, but it was wonderful.  Everything was just perfect. I ate tons of great food (the Indian restaurant Tandoor is one of the best restaurants ever) and everywhere I turned, there was another tempting snack.  I’ve been to HK several times before and I always really enjoy it- it’s one of my favorite cities in Asia.  It’s much more multi-cultural than Japan and more exciting and boisterous.

I did get a hearty stash of nail polish, but I’m a little afraid to use it on my natural nails. I put some on my guy’s toenails to see what would happen. So far, nothing’s turned green or fallen off.  The ladies  in Hong Kong believe in color and sparkle- greens, purples and neons and spectacular glitter bombs. One brand looked more professional than the others and I think I’ve seen it in Korea, but I’m a little afraid of some of the ultra-cheap glitter bombs  I got. I’ll put it on fake nails or maybe use them to give a mani to one of those mean ladies who laughed at me when I had food poisoning. (Just kidding). 

I’ll be posting some photos of the haul shortly and swatch them in the next few days. Glittahbombs away!

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

    I can’t wait to see the glitters you got in HK. ( I just realised that HK could also stand for Hello Kitty…) I hope it was a great trip!!=]

      Yeah, I’m going to make a franken with rat poison, Funky Chunky, and plutonium and give them manis. Or maybe just Funky Chunky alone would be enough. Mwa ha ha…

    Must have been so nice to spend a weekend in a beautiful hotel like that. I agree with Brooke, paint those means girl nails with that polish. Sounded like a wonderful time. Glad you enjoyed yourself.
