**NM SKY LOTD and my *GASP* Nails!**

Good evening Zombies!


Do you ever get in a rut and feel like you're doing the same old shit over and over and expecting different results? (I believe that is also the definition of crazy.) Last week was like that for me. I was so unhappy with my makeup at one point that I took it off after work in the car. That's like, totally unheard of for me. I feel like I was doing the same type of look over and over. Oh and I've decided (as much as I adore Fyrinnae) that Pixie Epoxy and I just are NOT friends. One day we get along smashing and the next day we're arguing over the "little things." Now before you get all "Well you just don't know how to use it," believe you me, I've done my research and I've watched an ass-ton of YouTube videos on the subject. But for some reason, I just can't make it work the way I'd like. And at the end of the day, I look like I smeared cake on my face and the icing was all that was left.

A few months (yes B, I know, MONTHS) ago a friend told me to look outside at the gorgeous NM sky at dusk. It was a mix of blues, purples, and greens. (We have the best sky around.) She told me to recreate that look on my eyes. It took me a LONG time, mainly because I was waiting on a key element to do this look.  (Enter Dragon's Wing)

Her reaction? "You should have used more blue." So yeah, again, Epic fail on my part. LMAO! 

But here it is non the less, because I'm pretty stoked at how it came out in the pics.





I'm not gonna lie, my full on face shot looked stupid, so I kicked it up a notch in Photoshop.



The Goods:

Eyes:
UDPP
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Hi-Fi Cosmetics "Emptiness and Lies" all over main lid
Fyrinnae "Glitterboi" on top of E&L
Fyrinnae "Dragon's Wing" lower lash line
Evil Shades "Glooming" slightly in crease to deepen look
NYX "White Pearl" underbrown bone as highlight
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero

Cheeks:
Hard Candy "Living Doll" blush

Lips:
Rimmel "Just So"

Last week I also had a super spiffy mani of Zoya's "Roxy" which I believe is a maroon glitter bomb of goo and China Glaze's "Frostbite". I think it was pretty neat. I do not proclaim to be a nail pro like my best friend, but it's fun to swatch anyway. Pretty nails = bad driving. (I love looking at the colors in the morning sunlight as I'm driving down the freeway. NOT a good idea.)

  1. LOL, I do the same thing with my nails. Driving and cool nail lacquer don't mix and I don't think the cop is going to buy it as I'm sticking my fingers under his nose to show him how holo-y my lacquer is and "Isn't it just freaking awesome!" when he's writing me a ticket. I so get that!

  2. Whoa! Love your LotD and especially the green!

    Your story about Pixie Epoxy made me lol. I have the same struggle with it sometimes. I admit I'm cheating on it with Hi-Fi's Shadow Fix right now. They're both sexy in their own way. ^_~

  7. I love this look! I just got back from a trip to the Outer Banks (NC), and we had some gorgeous sunsets that my camera *refused* to do justice to. Your look actually reminds me of my favorite of those sunsets. :)

    I got Roxy during the Exchange, but haven't used it yet. It looks just as pretty as I'd hoped! And I may have to get Frostbite - I don't wear blue nails alot (unless my hair's also blue, for some weird probably OCD reason), but that one looks lovely.
