  1. you did a great job zeng! way to go! :)

    pero di ba humahawa sa skin or clothes yung kiwi? planning to do the same kasi with my leather getaway bag pero kinda hesitant pa dahil since i use the bag for travel di sya maiiwasang mabasa (o madikit sa pawisang skin. haha!) or something like that... baka humawa? watchathink?

  2. actually i thought about that too. so some of the things i did to avoid the smearing of kiwi were:

    1. i did not apply anything onto the straps. of course i wouldnt want my shirts to have thick brown lines. haha. :D

    2. for the chipped parts, i did about 3 coatings. after every coating i wiped the kiwi-ed portion with wet wipes. air dried, then the next coating. repeat the same step for the 2nd and 3rd coatings. the thing is, i only need the kiwi for dyeing purposes. so i just thought of removing any excess wax or oil from the polish.

    i tested right after i dried the bag. it didnt smudge naman. :)

    if you are still super worried about the smearing of the polish, you may opt to get leather dyes which should work just fine. i searched online and i came across the name "Jacquard iDye". i dont know though if it's available here in Phils. :D

    goodluck!

  5. PAAAAM! Srsly you like this? BTW, 'yung strap niya isn't long. About 26 inches. And non-adjustable. The leather is the hard type. And there are still some chipped parts. If it's ok with you, I'll bring it to school sa enrollment. :) Nobody's gonna use it here naman. :)
