NOTD- Vacation Nails

Of course I would get sick just in time for my trip to NYC to see the Twins of Evil tour (which was awesome even though I thought the smoke machines were going to kill me)...

Any way, here are my nails after 1 week of wear:

middle finger nail, y u no grow?
The pink skulls are Sally Hansen appliques and the blue is two coats of Color Club Otherworldy with one coat of Kleancolor Holo Blue. There is some moderate tip wear and the cuticle area is looking a bit rough but I think it all held up quite well.

The SH appliques are easy to apply but never quite fit my nails right. They also don't stay on worth a damn unless I keep them well away from the cuticle area (hence the huge gap), they'll peel up with in hours if they're even touching the cuticle.

The Mystic's Kiss REMIX

I was determined to get that vampy dark purple...

To get that color I started with Fyrinnae Diabolic Masquerade (blackened red), added a drop of Fyrinnae Fan Service (lavender) then finished it off with L'oreal The Mystic's Kiss (berry).

lip liner is a necessity with Fyrinnae Lip Lusters

A bit too much work for going out but nice none the less.

L'Oreal Project Runway The Mystic's Kiss Lipstick Review

In short, "MEH".

Yeah... not too impressed with this one. What looks like a deep purple lipstick is actually a dark hot pink on the lips. It's a nice raspberry, kind of sheer, but not at all what it looks like in the tube and not at all what I was expecting.

The formula is the standard L'Oreal lipstick, smooth and soft with a slight vanilla scent. I applies nicely and is creamy and moisturizing.

The Project Runway Collection is limited edition and includes eye shadows, nail polish, nail polish stickers/ covers/ whatever those appliques are called, lip gloss and lipstick and blush (i think). I purchased this lipstick at a mall CVS that had the entire collection available. I believe you can also purchase these at ULTA. 

with flash the berry tones and blue shimmer are more apparent

the blue shimmer doesn't really show on the lips

EOTD- Dangerous Curves

Such dreary, damp and dark weather here in the Northeast! Terrible for trying to take pictures of looks... not that I've really done any worth posting any way. Been stuck in a makeup rut out of laziness and working too damn much.

Hard as Hoof Update

Just had to sing some praise for this product again! Yesterday at work (I work in a pet store) one of the conures (a small parrot, basically a nut cracker with wings) tried to bite through one of my fingernails. The bird bit as hard as he could and only managed to chip my polish! I thought my nail was a goner but it's completely fine, there's no way I could be saying this if I had not been using Hard as Hoof.
