Trying Out CND at Jesi Mendez Salon BGC

Hey everyone!

Last Monday, CND Philippines invited me to try out their products at Jesi Mendez Salon BGC Branch.

For those of you who heard about CND (Creative Nail Design Inc.) for the first time, they are actually the global leader in professional nail, hand, and foot beauty, including SHELLAC Brand 14+ Day Nail Color. They are based in Vista CA.

I'm actually a fan of their VINYLUX line especially the top coat since 2015.

What's awesome about the Vinylux™ Weekly Polish is that even without a base coat it can last for more than a week, exposure to natural light activates the Prolight Technology™ the reason why the mani become more durable over time. ;)


So here's what the pamper station looked like when I arrived at the salon.. that photo of me is soo extra that it made me feel special. ;)

These are my color choices, CND Vinylyx Hypnotic Dreams for my main color, and Sage Scarf for my accent nails.

Here are their other Vinylux Colors, they even have a nude collection for my fellow working girls out there!

Here's a photo of me with the super attentive and kind nail tech (forgot to ask her name) but she's awesome!

Oh and also here are the CND Shellac Shades that I really wanted to try, though it was too late because my Vinylux mani is already done when I saw this bunch of pretty glittters, and they even have 5 different top coats to choose from including a matte one.

The CND™ Shellac™ System ia actually perfect for those active gals and guys who doan't have time to change their nail color weekly, the color remains flawless foe two weeks and removes in 10 minutes without nail damage.


Of course I won't forget to show you my CND Vinylux Mani! Here are some pics:


Last but not the least, a cute group photo after the event. :)

And that's it for today!

Follow me on IG: @wownails0816 for more nail art pics. ;)

'Till next time!

UniPin debuts in the Philippines!

Hey Guys !

It's been a while! I've been adjusting with my new job this past few weeks, the reason why I wasn't able to attend events and share news to you lately, I'm kinda trying to start attending events and write again slowly now that I'm settled in my new job.

And finally I have something to share with you guys, specially with my fellow gamers. Yesterday, at TNC High Grounds Café UniPin Online Game Voucher, Indonesia’s biggest and most favorable brand in the Indonesian online gaming industry strengthen its presence in the Southeast Asian Gaming Market by venturing into the Philippines.

In the middle: Me together with the CEO of UniPin Mr. Ashadi Ang

Today the online game market for the Southeast Asian gaming industry is experiencing a tremendous growth and this has motivated UniPin to a new chapter in its digital journey to move its expansion to the Philippines to cater to the growing online gamers of this region. Demand in the online gaming market further geared us to develop and build the greatest gaming community for this region, in particular to provide a regional eSports platform for the local Philippines gamers to connect with Southeast Asia gaming communities and to support the creation of a healthy eSports lifestyle among the young generation.

To kick start its Southeast Asian vision, UniPin is partnering with Philippines local partners, such as SM Cyberzone to organize eSport competitions across the Philippines, and among others TNC Philippine Holdings Inc. being one of the distributors, in the distribution of UniPin Online Game Voucher for the Philippines’ gaming market.

Mr. Ashadi Ang, the CEO of UniPin said, "There are numerous questions as to why we chose the Philippines as our first milestone to enter the Southeast Asian countries". With Philippines’ population of more than 100 million people coupled with the percentages of residents possessing bank accounts at 14% - 16%, according to the research conducted by BPS survey (The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas), position Philippines to be the ideal platform to launch UniPin due to many similarities in terms of market trends and gamers characteristics between the Philippines and Indonesia.

"A vision, a dream to merge the gamers experiences in Southeast Asian countries, even though sounds impossible, but with our experiences, commitments and high dedication, we are optimistic to make our dream come true " concurs Mr. Ashadi Ang . "A big dream starts with a leap of faith and the courage to act, and we start this leap with the Philippines. We foresee that UniPin will merge and connect both the Philippines’ gamers’ experiences with the Indonesian’s gamers community and together bring forth the gamers’ community in both countries to a higher level."

“Currently UniPin partners with more than 300 game publishers worldwide and has a total of 10,000 game titles. This enables us to serve 30 million gaming communities which is in line with our slogan ‘’One for All, All for One,” as announced by the CEO of UniPin with much enthusiasm and confidence at the Press Conference delivered on the 15th of May 2018 in Manila.

With its vast game titles, UniPin is committed to create the greatest online gaming community in the Southeast Asia region, by first embarking with the Philippines, through its international-class flagship and favorite products such as Mobile Legends Bang Bang, Player Unknown Battleground (PUBG), Dota 2, League of Legends, Battlenet Club, Nexon Karma Koin, and many more games to come.


In its starting debut for the Philippines, UniPin will collaborate with SM Cyberzone by hosting a nationwide eSports tournaments starting in June 2018. The winners of such tournaments will then be flown to Jakarta to compete in UniPin’s eSports Cup for the Southeast Asia, which will take place sometime in October 2018.

To support its presence in the Philippines, UniPin also cooperates  with other Philippines local companies to provide a comprehensive payment channels such as 7-Eleven, Globe, Smart, Dragon Pay, TNC cybercafé, SM Dept / supermarket, Bayad Center, Axiapedia, Globe G-Cash & BPI Bank, and many other payment channels.
