Amy's Nail Boutique Review and SWATCHES!


I have a fun review for you today. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to try out an Etsy based nail polish company called Amy's Nail Boutique. Amy specializes in fun, franken glitter nail polish blends.

Per the Etsy store:

Welcome to Amy's Nail Boutique! All polishes are handmade with the finest ingredients by yours truly. Most are available in both full size (15mL) and mini (5mL). Polish is my passion and I am so happy to share it with you! In most instances, all polishes are ready to ship when ordered (with the exception of customs) and will ship same/next business day. Please feel free to message me for custom or bulk orders. Also, like me on Facebook for shop announcements: facebook.com/AmysNailBoutique and http://pinterest.com/amy24elmo

I received 4 small mini sized nail polish to try out. These are new to the shop for 2013.

Purple and Brown LOTD, featuring D-Vinley Chilled lipstick!


Holy CRAP, it's been almost a month since my last blog post. I don't know where the time went, but I DO know life has been insanely busy. The break from blogging was nice though. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and HAPPY 2013!

I've been doing my makeup a lot lately, but posting via Instagram, over the blog. Some days I just find it easier to snap a photo and post it over taking pictures, editing and watermarking them, and then doing a full blog post. I guess I'm lazy, but it's been fun. Speaking of Instagram: follow me @makeupzombie!

On my Facebook fan page, I asked which colors I should wear on my eyes today. I decided to go with Purple and Brown. I recently picked up the new Fergie Wet n Wild lipstick in "D-Vinely Chilled" and used it with this look. I adore this collection from WnW. The lipsticks are SO pigmented and last forever. I'll have more on that later.

Oh and I got a new camera for Christmas..and I'm digging it!

The Goods:
TFSI as primer
MAC "Blackground" paint pot as base
MUA Shade #9 for main lid
Wet n Wild matte brown (from the I (heart) Matte palette) blended into and above crease
Fyrinnae "Cupcake Sprinkles" patted over Shade #9 and blended into tear duct area and lower lash line
MAC "Vanilla" pigment as highlight
Random liner and mascara

E.L.F. "Pink Passion" on the apples of my cheeks

Wet n Wild "D-Vinley Chilled." Yes, it really does have lots of sparklies!

I hope you like this look! I promise to come around more often! And I really need to catch up on all of YOUR blogs! I've missed the blogging community!
