China Glaze Bogie

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

I haven’t posted much of my polishes from the Vintage Vixen collection, and that’s because all the photos came out a disaster! I really need to find better ways to photograph without natural daylight. But I really wanted to show Bogie so I’ve tried to get a few photos that may hint at what a beautiful polish this is. It’s actually a shade that I normally wouldn’t go for, as I prefer bolder colors, but it’s really beautiful! It’s a dark plum shade with a nice shimmer to it. It applied well as the rest of the collection, and I went for two layers (three on some nails).

This photo is actually taken a week later, with an extra layer added. I wanted to get one photo with some daylight.

Evil Eyed Goblin

Thursday, October 7th, 2010

I felt like doing a dark look, and pulled out some of Meow’s Halloween collections. I’ve mainly used pigments from the Halloween Zombies collection, but also Dance of Death and Friday the 13th. When it comes to the colors I’ve used plum shades on the lids, and a dark green/teal in the crease.

Here’s what I’ve used:
Urban Decay – Primer Potion
Nyx – Jumbo Eye Pencil Black Bean smudged on lid
Meow – Goblin (Zombies) on entire lid except outer third
Meow – Evil Eye (Zombies) on outer third of the lid
Meow – Zombie (Zombies) in the crease and along lower lash line
Meow – Spellbinding (Dance of Death) as highlight on the brow bone
Meow – Broken Mirror (Friday the 13th) on top of Zombie in the crease to blend out, and in the inner corner of my eye
Nyx – Jumbo Eye Pencil Cottage Cheese in the inner corner of my eye
Urban Decay – 24/7 Eye liner in Zero on upper lash line
Isadora – Inliner kajal in Blonde on lower water line
Lancome – Hypnose Precious Cells Mascara

Photos are taken with flash. I hope you like it!

I love Halloween so I’ll try to do some more looks this month, and hopefully a little more interesting than this one.
