Purple and Bronze Watercolour NotD

3 Nov

Today I thought I’d share the nails I wore to a wedding last week! They may seem random and out-of-context, but  rest assured that they matched my outfit perfectly 😀

I did these right after Day 27 of the challenge, so was feeling rather inspired by the sponged-watercolour thing 😀 Since I was wearing a black satin maxi dress with purple and bronzey-gold flowers, I went with a black base with purple and bronzey-gold colours sponged over top.

Polishes used were:

  • China Glaze Liquid Leather (base)
  • Mode Boysenberry
  • Jordana Silky Purple
  • Mode Messed Up
  • Color Club Fashion Addict
  • Kleancolor Americano
  • NYX Girls Buzz Worthy
  • Jordana Lavender Fields
  • Mode Glitzy Glam

That’s a big list!! It makes it seem like these took ages to do, but they really didn’t! They were positively light-speed by my nail art standards.

Here’s a rare view of my right hand, just to show you that I really DO do them both! 😉

*happy sigh* Pretty pretty.

What do you guys think? Something you would wear?

31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 29

29 Oct

Supernatural nails. Bleurgh. Considering how many halloween nails I’m seeing everywhere at the moment, I felt decidedly uninspired. I don’t think it helped that I spent the day out and was running low on daylight for photos!

I decided on purple nails with gold stars, inspired by the cliché wizard’s hat. Because magic? I dunno.

The purple is Kleancolor Love Affair, and the stars were done with my gold glitter Jordana striper (called Golden Artist).

A bit boring, but cute in its own way :3

31 Day Nail Challenge: Day 6

6 Oct

Tra-la~ Today is purple! Well, technically violet but I’m not fussed about technicalities. I went out of my way to make sure that it wasn’t China Glaze today, so appreciate it 😉

This is OPI Purple with a Purpose, with Color Club’s Wild at Heart on my thumb and ring finger. You can’t tell because it wasn’t sunny, but Wild at Heart is a gorgeous colour with some awesome holo action going on :3 Everybody ought to have these two purples! I’ve had Purple with a Purpose for approximately a million years but never wear it enough. It has really pretty pinky-blue shimmer in it ^_^

Super love love ❀

Jordana Glitter Specialty Nail Polish Swatches

11 Mar

Right, so last time when I was finished showing off my Australis polishes, I promised you that next time you’d hear from me I’d come bearing glitter! My day off work didn’t deliver the best weather so I spent the day inside watching cheesy 90s movies, and playing with my new Jordana glitter specialty polishes. I only have 5 so far, but after testing them you can be sure that I’ll be ordering the rest… Everybody ready?

KleanColor Alter Ego Metallic Eyeliner – Swatches and Reviews

16 Jan

Evening lovely readers!

Hope you all have been well. I have been home the last day and a half from work -_- Nothing too major just feeling like I’ve been run over my a truck. I don’t think I’ve been looking after myself the very best, but Gabby has been looking after me.

So today’s post is a quick review and gratuitous amounts of photos of our new KleanColor Alter Ego Metallic Eyeliner Duo.

We picked these up Saturday when we went to Henderson Mall from the 123 Mart. They were each $3.90, what a steal!. There are seven colours all together: teal, purple, blue, silver, gold, copper and black. We brought purple, blue, gold, copper and black, with of course a plan to pick up all the other colours too. Each liner comes with both a pencil and a liquid liner, which looks good together or separate.

For a dollar store find I am very impressed with the quality of these liners. Even though we use KleanColor nail lacquer, the rest of a brand is a mystery to us. Whether expensive, mid range or cheap, there is no guarantee that the entire range will be any good.

The pigment of all the colours is just right, I was a bit worried about how bold the colours would be but they are perfect. The colour isn’t too pale but it isn’t too over the top either. I also found the application was different to what I had experienced with any other liquid liner. The brush was a little bit shorter and did not flail about when you apply it to your eye lid, which meant there was little to no mess.

I would rate the liquid liner at four stars and the pencil and three and a half 🙂

Now time for your photos!
EDIT: Swatches are laid out liquid liner on to and then pencil on the bottom, except for black which is reversed.
