The Lacquer Ring – Cherry Blossoms

We are back for our first Nail art group post from the Lacquer Ring. As we said before, Nicole from Polish Me, Please was in charge of picking our color this month which was orange and our nail art group post which is Cherry Blossoms. I already texted Nicole last night cursing her because I was so frustrated and hating how my Blossoms were coming out. Damn you Nicole! lol

When I think of Cherry Blossoms I think of Pink. I did some research and found some other colors. I decided to go with the white variety.

My sister is in town for a few weeks to visit!! She was over the other night so I had her help me pick a base color for my Cherry Blossoms. She came up with two coats of Darling Diva’s Dangerous Driver. My branches I used a brush and mixed drops of Urban Decay’s Gunmetal and one of China Glazes’s Liquid Leather. For my blossoms, I dotted them on using Ulta’s Snow White. The Center I mixed Sinful Colors Happy Ending and Jessica’s Banana Peel. For the pollen, I lightly brushed the yellow again and tipped it with China Glaze Liquid Leather.

So these aren’t exactly as I’d hoped they turn out, but I ended up liking them. It was fun to see what all of the girls came up with. See theirs for yourself below!

 

EOTD 29 – Cobalt cat eye

Happy Monday! I know, oxymoron… :/

Before we get to the make up look, week three of the nail challenge is this week. I should be getting an email later today with this final weeks (before grand prize week) topic. Don’t forget to click here to go vote,(Hopefully for me. 😀 ) for week two. Voting for week two closes Wednesday, December 5th 🙂

Now, for today’s look, I tried something a little different and quite time-consuming… lol. A while back I got these “Eye Rock – eye tattoo” things in one of my Birchbox. Unfortunately most of the reviews of other Birchbox users stated that they didn’t stick, or last all day, which mine did not either.. I had gotten the idea back then and never got a chance to try it until now. Once you take the ‘sticker’ off of the paper you are left with a sort of stencil. I, (not easily) stuck that to each eye and traced inside of it with my liquid liner. Once the ‘stencil’ was removed I had to go back over it and define it more.

Here’s what I used:

“Urban Decay primer potion”

“Eye Rock – eye tattoo” as stencil

“Avon Extra Lasting Eye liner in Cobalt”

“Too Faced – After Glow in Lust” on lid

topped off with “Urban Decay – Super Curl Curling Mascara”

EOTD 28 – Thanksiving tattoos

No, I did not get a tattoo for Thanksgiving, I wish I got another one.. I used my Maybelline color tattoos for this look.. I hope all of my US friends (or anyone else that celebrated)’s Thanksgiving on Thursday? mine was nice, then exhausting, I went out at 7:30P on Thursday to Walmart, Kmart, and Target, we home and went to bed. Back and out of the house at 7 to Mall.. home around 12 I think it was. My feets were screaming, but I got decent deals. Especially on baby clothes, my sister is due in March and I didn’t even think about that on BF I was just so focused on Christmas presents, I walked by baby stuff and I think I screamed out loud I got such a good deal. Baby clothes need not be so expensive they grow out of them so quickly, so that’s why I was flippin out on my deals <. Anyway I hope everyone’s Thanksgiving was nice, and their BF was not too bad if they ventured out.

Onto my Thanksgiving day look.. I wore a not quite Royal but not quite Navy sweater so Iused “Urban Decay – primer potion” then “Bad to the bronze” on the outside corner and made a cat eye and brought into mid eye, to blend with “Tenacious Teal”. topped off with “Urban Decay Super Curl Curling Mascara”.

EOTD 24 – gray/black

This will be a quick post today.  this look is my kind of smokey eye look. I am not big on darker colors like blacks, they scare me as far as blending. However I took the plunge and used from my e.l.f. shimmer palette, (so sorry no names) I used a light white/gray and a black shimmer. As always primer was “UD Primer potion” and mascara “UD Super Curl Curling Mascara”

What do you think?
