From her sleek ponytail to her bright red lipstick, Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza, Eat Bulaga’s golden girl, has set signature looks that turned her into a trendsetter. Remember how they say she caused a certain lipstick variant to get sold out even without direct endorsement? A lot of online stores also use her photos to sell hairstyling products and clothing pieces. Without us realizing it, she is slowly becoming a style icon.
One of Yaya Dub’s trademarks is her perfectly painted nails. I can’t help but notice that each time I get to watch Kalyeserye. You would see her wearing classic colors in earth tones or shades of pink but in two important milestones in the series, she wore her nails in what is known to be her favorite color – yellow. Her nail polish looks shiny and flawlessly applied with the gel manicure effect. Given that a gel manicure (this method that uses a special kind of nail polish that quickly dries up after exposure to UV light promises a chip-free, glossy look to last for weeks!) costs an average of Php600 in the metro, here’s a DIY tutorial you can do at home.
DISCLAIMER: I’m no nail expert so get yourself ready to see a lot of imperfections. To be honest, I was never into nail polish until two months ago when I decided to kick off my bad habit of constant nail biting. 😉 This post is here to share with you my recent nail polish finds.
