Please recommend me a GOOD LOOKING Heatsink Fan. No need for a top tier fan, I don't OC at all. Im just getting it for a better looking Rig. My stock HSF looks so boring :p 

I am currently deciding on whether to get a HSF or a Liquid Cooling System (which ever will look better and fit my case)

By the way, my budget is below 75$

Here are my PC Specs:
Core i3-2100
G.Skill Ripjaws X 2x2Gb
ASUS P8H61-M LE
FSP Epsilon 600w 80+
Cooler Master K380 PC Chasis
GTS 250 (will be upgraded to either a GTX 650 Ti SSC or an HD7850)

More about : recommend good hsf

don't bother with liquid cooling (unless going custom, which starts around $150 for cpu only)...

for a i3 2100 i wouldn't reccomend upgrading the HSF honestly, but http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1683... the 212 evo is cheaper then the 212+ at the moment, i would invest in that

I found some cheap Liquid cooling (such as the Antec Khuler H2O 620) is it any good?

By the way, I've heard a lot of good reviews about the 212. But I want something that looks better.

I have my eyes on the Cooler Master GeminII S524 and the Deep Cool (Ice Blade Pro). I really like Ice Blade Pro's aesthetics since the LED lights match my LED Strip. Is it a reliable brand? Or should I just get the geminiII?

the deepcool one looks nice, and i wouldn't recommend closed loop liquid coolers like the H20 620 because they preform similar to cheaper HSF's (like the $100 H100 is about even with the Nh-D14 which is $60-70)

Well, i don't really care that much about the performance, I am more inclined on the aesthetics :p 

I really wanted to get a liquid cooling system since it doesnt look to cramped up inside my case, and it looks neat. However, I don't wanna risk frying my mobo. Well, looks like im gonna have to go with Ice Blade Pro. Thanks sir nna2 :)
