Two make-up looks for Christmas and New Year's

Hey guys,

How are you doing? Are you ready for Christmas? I ,myself, have some more stuff to sort out tomorrow. I am also working in the morning which means that I have even less time to sort stuff out but hey ho...!!!
I had some time yesterday afternoon and I thought I should prepare this post for you guys. This is basically a post featuring my two picks for the Holiday Season make-up. They are easy and simple. You might need some time to practice in order to perfect them but I think they are easy enough.
I will probably be doing both of them during the next week or so.
Now...let's get on with it...!!

Look number 1 "Tickle Sprinkle"
For this look I used a base colour to cancel out any redness and/or veining on my lids(Urban Decay "Foxy"). I ,also, used a taupe colour in the crease(MAC"Haux") and 2 glitters on the lid of the eye (MAC "Reflects Pearl" and Essence "03 A Piece of Forever") . Then I lined my top lash line with black gel eyeliner (Bobbi Brown) and I added half lashes(Ardell 318). 

Look number 2 "Graphic & Colourful eyeliner"
For this look I used my MSF Natural to cover any discolourations on my lids and then I used a light brown to lightly define the crease (Urban Decay "Naked"). Then I used two colours from the Sleek Ultra Matts Palette(Highness and Orbit) to create a graphic eyeliner look. Then I used some liquid eyeliner really close to the lashes and some purple glitter liner (Collection 2000 "11 Shake It Up"). I finished off the look with Ardell 109 lashes and some white eyeliner in the water line.

What do you guys think? What look are you going to be rocking this holiday season???


Christmas nails!!

Hello Hello!!!

How are you all?? I just got up a couple of hours ago and I realised that it is already the 15th of December which means we are only 10 days away from Christmas. So, I decided to do a series of Christmas- themed posts starting with nails. I have 8 different nail ideas for you today (4 colours + 4 designs).
I picked the colours and created the designs specifically for you. I am not very good with designs normally but I did try very hard to make these and I hope you like them.

Here is the nail wheel with all 8 "picks"...

Let's take a closer look.....

                    Now for colours I chose the classic Gold, Green and Red and a sparkly purple.

From left to right: OPI "Goldeneye", Barry M "Racing Green",OPI "Wocka Wocka!" &          Zoya"Daul".

These are my picks for Christmas/New Year's nails for 2012. What are yours??



OPI "The Bond-ettes" mini nailpolish set

Hello and happy mid-week guys !! :P
How have you been? How was your week so far?? I have some exciting nail varnish swatches for you today. As most of you already know, OPI released their Skyfall /James Bond collection. Some of the colours were exciting and others ,not so much. However, I was looking for one of them and couldn't find it anywhere so when I realised it was available in the set with the mini varnishes I decided to pick that up instead of going on a wild goose chase so-to-speak.
Now, without further ado, here are some pictures of the varnishes...!

 From left to right: Goldeneye, The Spy Who Loved Me, The world is not enough and Live and let die.

Mini VS Normal
This is "Goldeneye" and I bought the full size bottle before I purchased the set.


The Spy Who Loved Me

The World Is Not Enough

Live and Let Die

Now, since the last one(live and let die) is the reason why I bought this set in the first place I also have some swatches of this polish ,on the nails, to share with you...

Did you pick any colours up from this collection?What do you think of these colours??
