Oh My! Illamasqua!

Hi all!

Something a bit different today.. But don't worry, there will be a make up look posted this time around at the end of the post. Today I am actually gonna tell you a little bit about an awesome brand that you may of heard of, but not really experienced as they are only a couple years old, but are already making a huge mark for themselves in the beauty world. That brand is Illamasqua.

More about this brand, as well as the makeup after the jump.

Essence 'Blue Addicted' and Outfit!

Hi all!

Today I bring you a double post. Nails and an outfit! I have a job interview tomorrow so I had to make sure my nails where all done, and that I had a nice, presentable outfit and so I figured I would share it with you. I bring to you Essence 'Blue Addicted', a Deborah Lippmann 'Across the Universe' dupe. I managed to get 2 bottle of this off eBay.

And just quickly, I am now also on Facebook!

More photos plus the outfit after the jump!

Max Factor 'Fantasy Fire'

Hi all!

Today I'm bringing you a quick one from last week. I mentioned in my Nail Mail post that I picked up a dupe for the infamous Clarins '230' aka Unicorn Pee and I said I was going to wait until this week to try it but I couldn't help myself so I put it over my gradient mani and holy hell... IT'S SO AMAZING!

Lots more pretty pictures after the jump!

Happy Friday the 13th!

Hi all!

Yay! It's a spooky Friday the 13th here in Australia, so I've decided to celebrate it by posting a make up look as well an attempt at freehand nail art! This is a bit of a long post.. Sorry about that, and you get to see a bit of the face behind the blog.

Another picture heavy post, and as always, more after the jump!

Illamasqua Phallic and Stance Mani Update + Nail Mail

Hi all!

A quick one for today. I was browsing through a few of my fave nail blogs and stumbled upon a few that had tumblr accounts and came across a gradient tutorial by the amazing Nailasaurus. Now I have given gradients a couple of tries before with no success so I grabbed out my nail tips and with the ones I don't use, went to it using her technique, and guess what, it worked!! I think the thing with gradients is that you need to have no fear, the previous times I had been too gentle with it and failed.

Now I was already wearing Illamasqua 'Phallic' and decided rather than take it off I would revamp it by doing the gradient over the top.

Illamasqua 'Phallic'

Hi all!

For the first time ever, I took my nail polish off after less then a week of wearing it. Uh oh.. I think I'm catching the nail blogger curse of not wearing the same polish for more than a few days before needing to change it! So with that I have another gorgeous Illamasqua polish to show you all and it happens to be 'Phallic'!

Illamasqua's website describes it as 'a dark midnight blue with a shimmer finish' and that's exactly what it is! It's so incredibly gorgeous in the bottle, but as with a lot of shimmers it kinda gets a lost on the nail, but one of the charms of 'Phallic' is that you can still see a glint of gorgeous midnight blue shimmer winking at you in the sun.

Matte Matte Matte!

Hi all!
Just a quick one for today :) I mentioned in my previous post that I had picked up Australis 'Speck-tacular' which is a flakie top coat as well as receiving Essie 'Matte About You' and I decided to throw it over the top of what I was already wearing, which happened to be Pretty & Polished 'Galax-E'..


It looks amazing over flakies! I cant stop staring at my nails in the sun! Everything just takes on this glowy feeling rather than a sparkle, so cool :D
