Hey there ~
While watching tv and movies my eyes are always immediately drawn to nail art. I saw Alice Through The Looking Glass back when it was in theaters and I loved the white queen’s black chevron tips. Nail art is becoming increasingly popular in pop culture, and I love it!
Here are a few awesome designs or just plain impressive nails from my favorite films and tv shows:
1. Yubaba from Spirited Away. To be honest, I’m in love with this entire character design, the cherry stilettos are just the cherry on top.
2. Rin from Free! You can see a real-life version of this nail art here.
4. Gossamer from Looney Tunes. Everyone needs Bugs as a nail tech right?
5. Effie Trinket from Hunger Games. I also took a whack at this nail design last year.
Have you ever drawn inspiration from a tv character’s nails?
Hi there! I’ve always preferred wearing long natural nails instead of artificial acrylics. I would worry about the set growing out and going in for constant fills would drive me mad, so I’ve picked up quite a few tips and tricks for growing long durable […]
Hi there! This adorable little guy is the Tako Pore Blackhead Scrub Stick from the Korean beauty brand TonyMoly. To be totally honest, I purely bought this for the cute octopus packaging, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love the product! This […]
I had a stroll through Ulta last weekend while the BF was looking over PS4 accessories in the strip mall downtown; I somehow managed to make my way home with only two goodies!
I’ll let in you on the second item in a few days, I’m too excited about this face mask!
This is the Sugar Kitten Holographic Peel-Off Mask from I Dew Care. It’s an iridescent rosy lavender hydrating peel off mask. It has a lovely delicate rose scent and shifts from light pink to lavender.
From the brand:
It was impossible to do this mask justice in photos, iridescent finishes are so difficult to capture! You would think all my nail art photography would have given me enough practice….
My skin felt softer and hydrated after peeling this off. It has quickly risen to the top of my mask routine. I think the mask looked cooler after peeling it off though, to be honest! This retails for $23.00, which is a bit pricier than what I usually spring for, but I think it’s well worth the money!
It does look a bit like I just finished scalping an alien though, haha.
What’s your favorite kind of face mask? I’d love to know!
It’s been a hot minute since I’ve treated myself to a new eyeshadow palette, and since the great makeup purge of last month, my eyeshadow stash is looking quite thin.
I spotted this palette from Pixi by Petra at Target a few weeks ago and was seduced by the huge selection of earth tones. This is the Mixed Metals collection, it has 10 lustre shades and 2 shimmery matte tones.
Starting from top to bottom I swatched: Fiery Copper, Foiled Magenta, Gold Metal and Metallic Mink.
These have higher color payoff than say a Wet N Wild palette, but the level of pigmentation leaves something to be desired. I had to go in with my brush two or three times on each shade to get enough color.
These shades look vastly different once outside the palette, but are still gorgeous! I created the look below using only this palette, it lasted for 8+ hours without creasing, and these apply very smoothly with almost zero fallout.
Have you tried this brand before? What’s your favorite product?
