HOTD

Hello, in my last Hair Of The Day post, somebody asked about keeping hair out of their face, I'm growing my bangs out right now in fact so I know the troubles with the half grown in hair. Today I did a simple braid (but reversed it, instead of going over when braiding, I went under [this makes the braid stand out more!]. I also only frenched one side [top side], the bottom didn't have any hair added in while braiding), I threw my hair into a messy bun and left for practice. I love this look!

Haul!

I've never owned a red, I always found them to be boring but this is just stunning!!!!!!!!! I'm in love. Keep in mind that the pictures don't depict the sparkle quite right. I even used my brand-spankin'-new SECHE VITE! It's shinneeeeeyyyyyy.

Zoya Trixie

I sent invites for free makeup to the two people who responded to my post, just click the link! If anyone else would like free makeup (no strings attached!) just post your email adress!

I used Zoya Trixie, a silver foil. I wanted to Konad it but I haven't the creativity nor the willpower right now. Blegh. I love this color on it's own though, it's perfect. One of these days I'll make a top twenty list but again, lacking creativity and willpower right now. On to the pictures.









Hey New People (That's All of You!)

Big shout out to Brooke, she directed most of you here! Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my blog, I'd like to take a moment to tell you all, I love comments, I adore them.

Yup, Another Post

I RE-DID my NOTD (at this point can I still call them that?). I used China Glaze DV8, a holo teal. Amazing. Just beautiful. Look at my perfect application.

I've Posted WAAAAAAYYYYYY Too Much Today...

I Konaded my previous manicure. I used Zoya Lael to stamp as well as plate m64.

New NOTD

I took Midori off, I don't know why but my bottle of OPI Parlez-Vous OPI? was calling to me. According to my mother (who speaks a bit of French) the name means 'Do You Speak OPI?'. PVO is a muted creme purple, just a bit lighter than plum but way darker than lilac. I love this color so much. I will wear it with no topcoat or basecoat tomorrow to practice and I'll show you all how it's holding up!

NOTD

I used the stunning Zoya Midori, at first I wasn't sure it was 'me'. I love me some green though so this shade quickly won me over. It is an apple green with a secret gold flash. LOVE IT!

FOTD, among other things...... PIC HEAVY!

Yup, my first make-up post (other than the last one!) I used Wet n' Wild Ultimate Expressions in Sand Castle for the eyes (the gold and bronze shades), Covergirl Lashblast mascara, and Korres Lip Butter in Quince for the lips. The eyeshadow was cheap and is highly pigmented and the lip butter was expencsive but it is my FAVORITE make-up item. Ever. Period. End of story. I believe you get the picture, speaking of which, I took pictures!!!

I also did my hair by twisting bits of it into a headband, if you like it, comment, and I'll do a tutorial!

Girly Pink

Quickie post altert! I used Maybelline Salon Expert Girly Pink. I found this at Rite Aid for 75% off and figured 'what the heck? I don't have many pinks'. This color is very prim and proper, the below photo is one coats on my ring and pinky and index and middle are naked *gasp*. Look at how stained my nails are, blegh!
















Next is two coats on the whole hand




























The brush, it is AMAZING!!!!!!

Nails of the Day, Both Yesterday and Today (I goofed)

On a non-nail related note (hey this is my blog, I can do whatever I want) I made these earrings yesterday, they're so pretty and delicate looking. I adore them.









Yesterday I continued my purple kick, I wore Zoya Lael on both my toes and my fingers. I recived Lael from the Zoya exchange and love it EXEPT I got serious chipping today (I wore it for two days).








Right now I'm wearing a funky french with alternating NYC Pink Pomenade Creme and OPI Do You Lilac It? toped with the corresponding China Glaze QT and China Glaze How About A Tumble to add holo-ness ( I LOVE holos, so sue me!). The pictures should speak for themselves.









I re-painted my toes China Glaze Kaleidoscope Him Out, a pretty blue holo. Just pretend that I don't suck THAT BAD at painting my toes.

Agent Lavender

Hullo, today I wore the lovely, dainty, specatcular, Agent Lavender from the China Glaze Opperation Color collection. This color is the most perfect lavender ever. It has a creme finish and looks a little chalky at first but that does even out after three coats. I had a little streaking and balding problem but that too dissapeared. Words cannot describe how much I love this polish. Ignore my medication (anti-maleria for the trip I'm taking in two weeks) and my cup in the background of these pics.
