Nail of the Day: Silver sparkles

Hello Lovelies,

I love painting my nails and have a vast collection of polishes. Trouble is, with all the hairspray I use, the polish on my fingernails gets ruined a lot of the time. Therefore, my toes are usually painted at least to make up for it.

I used China Glaze Strong Adhesive Base Coat, one coat of Barry M’s foil effect in silver and then topped it off with a couple of caots of Barry M’s Silver hologram polish. My toes are all twinkly like christmas lights. Yay!

That’s all for now. Thanks for reading!

MHB.

Face Up: Snow Princess

Crafty Little Bear

Hello Lovelies! Hope you are all enjoying this wonderful sunshine we are having lately, yay spring!

Last weekend my friend Sofia (of Pretty Odd Wonders) came over to stay to watch horror films, eat pancakes and do some crafting. Sofia made a lovely floral headband, very spring-like (alas, forgot to take a photo, doh!). I thought I’d show you what I made too. I had originally started these two hats off a couple of years ago, then put them away in a box and forgot about them. So I decided I should finally get round to finishing them off and I’m really happy with them both.

First one is a pink tear drop base with pink feathers, an orchid, a string of pearl beads and a white veil.

The second one is my favourite of the two, but only because it has a skull on it and skulls rock! I took a plastic skull off of a novelty Halloween necklace and glittered it for extra sparklyness.

I had so much fun doing these, it’s given me the craft bug again. I haven’t made anything other than hair flowers to sell lately. I’ll be getting more adventerous with my glue gun this summer now. That’s all for today. Thank you kindly for reading. x

Look of the Day: #ZOMGBloggersBash Style

Hello Lovelies, just thought I would do a quick LotD post for the #ZOMGBloggersBash (I blogged about the actual event yesterday, read it here). I had asymmetric victory rolls in my hair but you can’t really tell in the photos. Oh well. I’ll just stick to the make-up.

I used silver shadow to my crease, added in a purple to the crease and blended out. I used black shadow at the outer crease and blended out to add depth. White shadow at brow bone.

Added purple/silver glitter to centre lid. A slick of black gel liner to top lash line. Silver shadow on lower lash line blended to black on outer edge. Corner false lashes for a fluttery effect.

Lots of black mascara. Finished off with a slick of true red lipstick, a matte brown shadow to contour the hollows of my cheeks, a beauty spot and strongly defined eyebrows. I chucked a load of hair accessories in for extra oompf and glamour for the evening. Glitter was my theme for the night and my sparkly spider hair clip topped it off nicely.

I painted my nails with two coats of Rimmel’s 60 seconds in 310 Red Carpet. I then dipped each nail into the same glitter I used on my eyelids and finished off with two coats of Seche Vite to ensure the nails were smooth to the touch.

I felt super glam with all that glitter. I think I will wear it more often from now on! That’s all for today lovelies, thank you kindly for reading! x
