Nails of the Day

Sooooo I actually did my nails today!



I started out with a layer of CND Stickey as a base coat.  Then, I used 3 coats of Loreal L'Orange on everything but the accent nail.  The accent nail is 2 coats of The Hungry Asian's Tamala, a black jelly, and 2 coats of The Hungry Asian's Pumpkin Patch.  Everything is topped with 1 coat of Seche Vite and 2 coats of Butter London Hardwear Top Coat.

It looks more like a Halloween manicure, but it's nice for fall.

NTMS 90-day Challenge Day 77 "Swatch of the day"

I've decided to start doing swatches of my collection since I'm trying to do a no-buy.  It always helps to see what you already have.  I'm not making the no-buy official because the ladies at NTMS are always posting goodies that I just have to have.

 Todays swatch is Chocoholic Robot by "Madd Style Cosmetics."  This color is described as a "warm milk chocolaty tone with green glitter and glitz."  This color is absolutely gorgeous, and my swatches did it absolutely no justice.  The color is extremely similar to the skin tone of my arms and hand, and the glitter just refused to photograph on the swatches.  Trust me when I say it's gorgeous!



  

See the glittery goodness!

Swatched dry on my arm (see how close it is to my skin tone)

Swatched over UDPP

I would definitely recommend that you use Pixie Epoxy or another type of glitter glue with this eyeshadow.  It is absolutely gorgeous paired with a mint-green shadow.  I like to pair it with Madd Style's "Afternoon Delight."

NTMS 90-day Challenge Day 78 "April Glam Bag"

So my glam bag from MyGlam came on Saturday!  They've been a little disappointing for the last two months, but this month, they really came through.  It was awesome!




Contents included a Lip Quench from Dermstore, an Urban Decay 24/7 pencil in "Ransom", some false lashes from All-Belle and a MyGlam eyeshadow brush and eyeliner Brush.

Swatch: "Ransom"

All in all, I was thrilled with this month's glam bag.  It was well worth the $10 spent. :)

Well, I've been sick for a little while now, so the FOTD posts will have to wait.  I did, however, take LOTD (lip of the day) pictures every day, so I'll probably just post LOTD or EOTD posts until I'm feeling (and looking) a little bit better.

90-day Challenge Day 90 - Bold LOTD

No, it's not a Look of the Day, but it's a Lip of the Day. :)

There's a 90-day challenge going on in one of the FB groups that I belong to, so I'm going to try it!  Wish me luck!

Today, I'm wearing Brazen Cosmetic's Balmstick in Psyche.  I don't think it's available anymore on their website, but it's quickly becoming my favorite go-to lip color when I wear simple eye makeup.  It's a GORGEOUS fuchsia.  The picture doesn't do it justice at all.
