Calling out for help + OPI Pepe's Purple Passion!

Hi all!

Omg! I'm showing you a mani.. and on my little nubbins! Haha hopefully they look okay. Today I bring you OPI's 'Pepe's Purple Passion', a beautiful dark, slightly vampy, berry/plum red with a red/pink/orange glitter that looks like it glows from within in the right light.

Oh and I have a huuuuugggeee favour to ask of someone that lives in the US at the end of this post.

I Miss You

Hi all.

As the title suggests, I miss you all so much! I'm getting really bored not blogging and obsession over nail polish, or constantly changing my mani and taking photos, and then posting and talking to you! I hate having my horrible natural nails so much that my new quest is to find a good nail strengthener that I can wear under polish so I still have something to show you. The strengthener I have just does not seem to dry when I put polish over it, which is a huge pain. I have also noticed, that even making a conscious effort to remember, I am not taking care of my nails as much as I would be if I was changing them every few days, and I know that trying to restore my nails is a big job that requires long term commitment. Going to look into OPI Nail Envy, I have heard good things in the past.

Ok! To make this post more relevant I am just going to post a few makeup looks I've had sitting in my 'to post' folder for a few months now. 2 looks where taken when I was in Europe on my holiday or just before we left.

Shopping Success!

Hi all!

One thing that shits me about being a gothy/rock girl, is going shopping. Mainly because I hate nearly everything that is in shopping centers, or everything I like is hideously expensive. Well, last weekend, the boyfriend and I decided after our amazing sleep in our new bed, so go for a walk around the city. So he showered, I got makeup-ed and we both got dressed. I grabbed my Hasselblad film camera and off we went. We ended up down at Pitt St mall, so I dragged Stephen downstairs for some amazing yum but gross KFC and pointed out to him this amazing jacket on a mannequin. Our quest for the day.. To find this amazing jacket and to see how horrendously expensive it was.

Illamasqua Master Class

Hi all!

Today I wanted to tell you about something that I did last weekend, I went to a class held by Illamasqua at their Sydney Myer counter on Pitt St in the CBD. It was a 1 hour and 30min class held by Mikele Simone and Francis Cutri who work for Illamasqua, and they went through the process of applying make up for a day look that can be turned into a night look with only a small amount of change.

Eyebrows Are Over-Rated

Hi all!

I just wanted to share some photos that I took whilst I wasn't working. I was having a lazy day until a random burst of inspiration hit and I jumped up, grabbed my camera and lights, threw on some makeup and took some photos of myself. For a while I had basically no eyebrows, apart from the very inner section, so there was very little photoshop involved in these shots.

Illamasqua 'Muse'

Hi all!

Oh no! What happened to my nails!! Well, my nail broke on my ring finger on my right hand, a clean break right across the free edge, and I thought to myself I might try out short nails for a while. I've had it in the back of my head for the past couple weeks that I should take my acrylics off and give a really good attempt at trying to get them strong. I have always had horrible weak, thin, bendy nails that are extremely prone to tearing and spliting, and every couple of months my thumb nails manage to tear about half way down my nail, fun, that's why I have the acrylics. Anyway, I'm getting side tracked.

I present to you, Illamasqua 'Muse'. The polish that started it all! I bought this gorgeous polish after seeing it on Temptalia's blog back just before Christmas and purchased it because it matched the dress I was wearing for NYE. I loved it so much that my boyfriend, being the amazing man he is, bought me 8 more Illamasqua polishes and 4 eyeshadows for my Christmas present <3
