Nail Of the Week: Midnight Romance


It’s just people have these romantic projections they put on everything that’s not based on any kind of reality.” – Jesse, Before Sunrise

I am a hopeless romantic. There, I said it. I’ve been in and out of love these past few months faster than you can say aha! I guess I have this sort of curse and gift wherein I tend to fall easy but once I get disappointed I tend to just fall out and move on just as fast. I’ve been going out, meeting new people and just enjoying life for now. After a few dates I’d think that THIS IS IT. I make those romantic projections of how we would be, how we should be and how perfect things could be; but then things happen and next thing I know I’m just moving on and making new sets of romantic projections. What is up with me?

Watching Before Sunrise just reminded me to treasure every bit of moment I’m having for no one could ever know when things will end. Stop making projections because once you do, you just stopped living in the present and before you know it, it’s gone, POOF! And I would never ever want a single moment in my life just pass me by without even fully enjoying every bit of it.


I want my day to end like Jesse and Celine’s. Not thinking about tomorrow, just enjoying the day, each other’s company, falling in love and just being happy. A lot can happen in a day and you can even fall in love. I know, I know, it’s just a movie. But once you’ve made that connection – that special connection with someone, you fall, just like that without you even wanting to fall for it. It just happens. Just like how shit happens when you wake up the next day and realize that it ends here- that this is as far as it’s gonna get. 

Hey Gellie, are you heart broken of some sort?

Oh, I’m not. Hehe. Welll, I’ve had my fair shares of disappointments on almost lovers and dates but everything’s fine. You just move on, carry on with life. Yes, I’m dating someone but don’t want to go into specifics. Let’s just say, currently, I’m happy. I’m stopping myself from making those projections again to prevent disappointments. I’m just gonna live this moment as it is before I miss out on all the joy it could bring me.


These nails just remind me of the midnight sky. Dark but the light from the sun reflected by the moon still shines through – just like how after every heart break, we can all safely assume that there is still that someone out there who will be worth it all again.

This is such a lazy day kind of nail art. If you’re not inspired to do something creative, you can just go grab your magnetic polish and after putting it on your nail, use your magnet to create that line or swirling effect by keeping it on top of your nails for about 10 seconds and poof! Instant nail art! My office mates thought it looks fab and to think there wasn’t much effort done on my part to create this nail art! Oh and after this, I topped it with my Klean Color Matte top coat and I love the combination.

Thanks to Girlstuff for letting me try their magnetic polish. I have the other design in swirl so wait for my post regarding that. I can’t wait, actually. But since Girlstuff nail polishes don’t chip easily, I bet you’d have to be a bit patient till my nails have outgrown this design or I’ve grown tired of them. Hahaha!

  8. Does it lasts longer than regular nail polish?
    Your fingernails are really nice, how do you make them healthy?

    1. It'll be perfect for a good 5 days then usually it will chip off of my nails because of the various activities I do. Thanks for noticing my fingernails, I guess I've given them 2 months rest of no nail polish hence they've been healthy :)
