Little less conversation, little more action

I think its high time I posted some looks and some manis!

Soooo, manis first.

Sigh. I did this really quickly for the England game yesterday. And we lost, so now I have to take it off. If you're English, I don't need to say anything. If you're not, its too hard to talk about it right now *sniff*.

That little mouse on the second one is on my right hand, so I'm pretty pleased with him! I can't take the credit for this one, I totally ripped off an idea from the lovely Nikki at Polish On Digital Paper. Her nail blog is one of my favourite nail blogs and she posts some wicked art.

I suck at doing french manicures without nail guides, but I wanted something along those lines because I went to a black tie do that my fiances work put on (hard life, eh?) This was really quick and easy and a funky alternative to a french. I think it looks a little bit like lace, and I probably could make a more 'lacy' effort if I had the time.

And now for some face:

This is what I wore to said black tie do, I wanted something soft and pretty and subtle (for me) because my dress was both fussy and white. I wasn't too pleased with it, but whatever. Free champagne.

Thought I'd try a cut crease, as I don't really do them much. All 120 shadows - I know matte blues are a bit on the bad 80's side but I think I managed to avoid that judging by the enthusiastic reaction by my work-mate Marcel (Brazilian, gay, adorable.... I want to eat him.)

Quick look using MAC Gesso and Evil Shades Double Barrell and Suffocation - def buying full sizes of these two - really impressed with how well the shimmer showed up as I don't even think I used NYX JEP that day. My face is mega cropped because... well, I had FOUR angry red spots on my chin that day. FOUR. Srsly.

This was inspired by Jazziebabycakes Red Vixen Tutorial. I used Evil Shades Zombie, the red from the Sleek Sunset Palette, black from Sleek Sunset and the gold liner is from Primark! The eyeliner is a little messy because I put falsies on, realised they were too long, took them off and couldn't be arsed to do them again before work. I thought the colour scheme was a bit 20's, hence the goofy headband picture (bad pic, awesome headband - £2 at Primark!)

Thats all folks. Julissa and Jonna have been doing water marbling this week, so I'm going to do a marble post, probably tomorrow. I've been marbling since way before I've been blogging but I have no pics, so I'm going to have to do another one! I need to take my England manicure off....

  3. Nice manis, the mouse one is so cute and the one below it is awesome, I like it more than normal french manicures :)

    Awesome makeup looks too, especially the blue one is gorgeous!

  4. I love the blue eye look.
    Don't even go there about England...urgh. At least now I can sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of the world cup without the stress of England matches!

  5. hello....

  6. ooo i love your nails with the lacey version of the french tips! gorgeouss :) did you create it with a thin tip pen? or a brush? kind of want to try it myself :)

    also love your pink/smokey look. gorgeous! cant wait to see what you post next! :D

  7. Thanks for the love, ladies!

    Agnes, I did the french things with a striper pen - the ones with a thin brush on one end and a pen on the other, they're dead cheap on eBay/ I use them a lot but I also use nail brushes which you can get on ebay dead cheap too

  8. I forgot to say I love the title of this post... there's a remix of this song on the Wii dance game and my friend always sings it, it cracks me up.
