Naked Nails


I am trying out "Naked" by Urban Decay's nail polish line. I find that for a medium skin tone or for a classic beige like myself, that the nude color is absolutely perfect for summer, or rather all seasons. After excessive hand washing and loads of dishes, it seems like two coats really does give you a no-chip experience. It's still going strong at 48 hours and I'm really pleased with the color. In the photo it looks much more yellow than it actually is. More of a muted nude-brown, with just a hint of blush. Would love to find this color in a nude lipstick!

Hard Lesson Learned: Never Put Water in Mascara

A chemical reaction occurs where has bubbles form, and when you try to shove the brush back in, it explodes all over your face and business formal shirt. It bled everywhere and bubbled and completely leaked out of the tube, the picture below is what it looked like AFTER I cleaned up most of the liquid.

You can safely put saline solution in though. If it gets too dry and clunky. This, I have tried and tested.

As you can see below, this is me experimenting with my regular Covergirl Lash Blast mascara in blackened brown.

Reliving the Glory Days - Prom Eye Makeup Look


Using some dark silver, dark taupe, and champagne eye shadows from a Revlon Colorstay eyeshadow palette, I managed to create a sultry evening look suitable for sneaking into teenager's pre-prom parties. Haha, just kidding, it was to send off a family friend. I wasn't his date, more like his dang photographer!

I finished the look with some sweeps of CoverGirl's Lash blast mascara in blackened brown, black winged eyeliner in Revlon Colorstay marker eyeliner, and lined the lower lash line in Wet n Wild's Color Icon eye/brow liner pencil in black.

You don't need the tools I mentioned to create the look, or the specific brands, but I hope you all get the idea!

Wow I look a little sleepy here!

Drab on the Outside, but Prepping Fab on the Inside

Ok, so my blog has been pretty empty and bland. I'm going to revive it.

Rather, I'm going to document my slow expected spiral into loneliness and sadness in the city.

Let this blog act as an outlet for my inner fashionista and artist, confined at work and in the streets at night. I'll be posting some beauty tutorials if I have time and some makeup reviews since, I think I've developed quite an addiction.

This summer I will be working in a bland drab building wearing equally bland drab clothes. Oh help me lord.
