Nailed It: VIBE lacquer store Official Opening @ China Sq Central

7th April  2011.

I was really honoured to be invited as a guest blogger to cover the event by Melva, the owner of Nail Vibe whom I purchased some of my OPIs/Orlys/ChinaGlazes from, and now a proud co-owner of VIBE!

Looking really cozy, girly with the pinks and floral motifs too.

As with all(most) shop openings in Singapore, a red piece of paper is used to cover up the signboard for unveiling at an auspicious time! 1pm was it.

I was proud to be a VIBE Concierge that day ;) With the blinged out tag and furry pens :)) Well, I also started work as an employee for VIBE store that day too!

Both sides of the store, I forgot to add in the other wall with the TINS, PA, Zoya and Essies :)
Yes, it's a piece of heaven on earth for me!

And I walked into a garden too when I first arrived way before her guests did...

Im gonna show you one of my current and most expensive lemming from the store...

This shelf has nail polishes, Swarovski blinged evening clutches and bags as well as jewelry!

And my favourite..
All maxxxed out. Yes. Bling-porn. 

These are designed by Melva and look at the motif...
Simple and classy, just the way I like it too!

VIBE is a one-stop for lacquer lovers, with all sorts of glitter, bling and other nail accessories...
Nail swatches are provided for some of the lacquer in-store...
Even Shrek made a cameo :) and thats me :D

Crackle Glaze in a shelf, 6 shades... for just SGD11!

Nail Vibe's polish remover (acetone) and cuticle remover (re-packaged from Blue Cross)

Another lovely clutch and also you see OPI Black Shatter on Michele, the other owner's nails :)

Here is she with a lovely black clutch!

And here's Melva with some champagne and the lovely clutch I am lemming after!

Here's Christine, my co-worker at VIBE

and this is us!

Me and Melva :)

My overall thoughts of the store: I love how it is all well-stocked with a huge array of OPI, China Glaze, Zoya, Orly, Essie, TINs, PA lacquers and treatments... as well as those lacquer sets :) The environment is so cozy as well, I will surely enjoy working there. 

I loved talking to fellow nail fanatics at the store too, mixing and matching lacquer colours according to their skin tone and of course, they spend while I watch on LOL. It used to be the other way round, you know...

May business prosper!!!

OMG Jamie...if I ever went there I think I'd go mad and get whiplash from trying to look at everything at once!

What a great store!! =)

Ahhhh I'm so so so jealous...working in a store that sells nail polish.
And current nail polish at that.
Be still, my heart.
