Its almost 3 weeks since i had my first gel extension manicure at PureColor Studio. My nails are still looking great and as good as new, except for a slight in growth near the cuticles. However, i am thinking of a new colour so i made an appointment with Lily at PureColor Studio.
I am not sure if i should just touch up on the in growth or to change colours entirely. My friend was telling that if the top gel layer is removed, its very painful and she practically screamed in pain when her manicurist done it for her. OMG ! I hope its isn't true.
The junior manicurist greeted me warmly and served me my hot tea. Lily greeted me with a cheerful smile and explained to me in detail if i were to change the colour of my gel extension. She would need to file off the top gel layer and i might experience a very slight tingling sensation. For hygienic practice, Lily wore a mask and also help me to wear one. This is because the filing movement would produce tiny dust particles.
Firstly, Lily gently removed the 3D flowers nail art. Then she gently file off the crystals and the blue green glitters on the top gel layer. Lily was really meticulous and i only experience slight tingling sensation on 3 nails. Phew ! Nothing like the horror stories my friend mentioned. Her manicurist is not skillful i think if she experienced excuriating pain when removing her gel nails. Lucky Lily is great as i only experience slight sensations on certain nails!
After cleaning my nails and conditioning the cuticles, Lily begin to work on my new colour. She added a light pink polish and some very fine pink & colorful glitters as the base colour. I wanted an elegant and ladylike design so Lily drew lovely roses and added pink crystals. As the pink crystals are tiny, Lily applied gel over my nails so it would last longer and can withstand daily chores.

I attended Dior Hydra Life Private Event held at Tangs Plaza today.
It was an intimate affair with Dior Professional Trainer, Dior Model and 4 ladies. Lovely refreshing lime drink with freshly thinly sliced cucumber and mini quiche and egg tart were served by the friendly Beauty Consultant.
We were given an introduction of Dior Hydra Life, the 1st Pro-Youth Hydration Skincare line from Dior.
diorhydraevent2a diorhydraevent2
There are 3 core products in this line. Mainly, the Hydra Life lotion Essence –In Lotion, Essence-In Moisturizer and Essence-In Eye Cream.
The uniqueness is that Essence is included in the lotion and mosituriser to instantly penetrates the skin for maximum hydration. A true essence created around a concentrate of 3 pure plant extracts, Jisten, Centella and Black Rose from Dior Gardens and infused into 3 different texture. Formulated with the “Essence-In” technology, it instantly penetrates into the heart of the epidermis in order to diffuse its active ingredients at each cellular level. Ideally moisturized, the skin regains the freshness of its youth.diorhydraevent4
Dior Professional Trainer used Dior’s Eau Magique Demaquillante (Cleansing Water)to clean the model’s skin. Its a pure light and transparent cleansing water especially formulated with powerful non-ionic and gentle ingredients to clean the skin effectively without irritation. I tried it on my face and felt refreshed.

After cleansing, he explained he used the Essence-in-Lotion to prepare the skin and to achieve immediate freshness for a more refined, smoother skin texture with revitalized skin tone. Formulated with the “Essence-In” technology, it instantly penetrates into the heart of the epidermis in order to diffuse its active ingredients at each cellular level. Use it daily in the morning and/or evening on the face and neck after cleansing. Our Skin is ready to receive the next steps of the Hydra Life routine for maximum hydration.
To cater for different lifestyle and skin type, Dior have formulated the Hydra life moistuzier in 3 different texture. diorhydrlifessmilk The first is Essence-In Milk, a fluid texture suitable for use in the day or hot and humid seasons and on combination or oily skin. diorhydralifegel
The Second is Essence-In Gel, a refreshing watery and dense texture suitable for use in the evening for oily skin.diorhydralifecreme
The Third is Essence –In Crème, a richer smooth texture suitable for colder environment or for ladies with dry skin.
All 3 Essence-In Moisturizer envelops the skin in a comfortable freshness, delivering a soft, luminous finish, maximum hydration and supple firmer skin.
We should always gently massage after application of skincare products to aid absorption and circulation.
Next he used Hydra Life Eye Cream specially formulated to respect the fragile eye contour area. The Eye Crème reduces puffiness and visibly lightens dark circles to ensure rested and radiant eyes. As mentioned, we should apply with gentle pressure using the fourth finger ideally to optimize the anti-fatigue action.
A Simple 2 Step system with Essence-In formula is all you need for hydrated youthful skin. Thanks Dior for a lovely evening.
