EOTD: Silver & Black

Sponsored | Bought Myself | Press Sample | Nothing to Disclose Giveaway Winnings | Gifted

If you have been following my blog for a while, you have probably noticed I don't tend to wear anything but brown, taupe and gold shades of eyeshadow. Well yesterday I found this sparkling eye pencil in the shade Charcoal from Avon in my stash and thought it might go nicely with the Hit the Town smudge pot from ELF.

Off I went to create a new eye look for myself, I have to say I was quite happy with the way it came out and I really liked it, hubby even noticed my eyes when he came in from work!

I started off with the Charcoal pencil and colored about half of my eyelid, starting on the inner corners. Then I took the Hit the Town smudge pot and an eyeshadow brush and put that on the outer half of my eye lid. Then I had to go find a black eyeliner from my stash and came across Rimmel Scandaleyes in Black, holy smokes what an amazing eyeliner! It is so creamy and glides across the lid and it's waterproof! It lasted all day even on my waterline, new favorite black liner! I lined pretty much all around my eye for a more dramatic look. I finished off my look with a black mascara from ModelCo. If you follow me on Instagram you probably seen this look on there yesterday and I mistakenly put Models Own instead of ModelCo, my bad LOL :)

Here are some swatches of the products I used; Rimmel Scandaleyes, Avon Big Color Dazzlers Sparkling Eye Pencil in Charcoal and ELF Smudge Pot in Hit the Town.

I don't think I could get away with wearing this eye look for a day time look, but I think it would be great for a night out!

I don't have any blog posts scheduled for the rest of the week, so is there anything that you would like to see from me this week? If so let me know in the comments :)

TIOT: China Glaze Running in Circles

Sponsored | Bought Myself | Press Sample | Nothing to Disclose | Giveaway Winnings | Gifted

I was going through my nail photos on my computer and uploading some of them to my Facebook page and I came across China Glaze Running in Circles. I could have swore I already posted the photo of this polish but I searched my blog and could not find it, so I'm gonna share it with you today. As I'm typing this I'm still saying to myself, I know I posted this LOL

Running in Circles is from the Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away Collection and is a gorgeous shimmer filled green! Best I can remember I used 2 coats in the photo below.

How gorgeous is that? You can still see my nail line while out in the sun, maybe a third coat would have fixed that, but I still really love this color.

Really don't know how I manged to skip over this and not get it posted :/ My Mom would say I was showing my age LOL

Next Tuesday I will have Pink Ice's Chocolate Chip for my TIOT, it's a fun little polish I picked up at Rue21

What are you wearing on your nails today?

Review: Fing'rs Heart 2 Art Dots So Cool Kit & a Giveaway

Sponsored | Bought Myself | Press Sample | Nothing to Disclose | Giveaway Winnings | Gifted

Last week I had the chance to try out the Dots So Cool nail art kit from Fing'rs, such a great kit! Everything you need for a cute nail look is included in the kit, which is something that I love about kits. Sometimes, really most times, I am so indecisive about what nail colors I want to use for my nail art and with this kit I didn't have to think about what colors because it comes with three fun colors that compliment each other well.

So what does come in the kit? As mentioned above you get three mini nail polishes and a dotting tool. The polishes are really great, they have a great formula and just glide on the nails. The wear time is pretty amazing too, I had this manicure on for about 3 days and did not have any chips in the polish. Dry time was decent too. Now I have a set of dotting tools but I have to say the one that comes in this kit is by far my favorite! I think it makes the most perfect dots, not too big, not too small.

Even though I did not have to pick the colors I wanted to use I still had to decide on how I wanted to do my design, with the three polishes you really have a lot of choices of what you want to do! In the end I decided to use the pink and green for my base colors and the white for the dots. I alternated the pink and green on my fingers for a fun spring look! For the dots I dripped some of the polish on a sheet of paper then dipped the dotting tool in, I did have a cotton ball that had some polish remover on it so I could clean the dotting tool off after I did each nail. 

I really love how this came out and I will be using this kit for many more dotticures! Have you used any of Fing'rs nail art kits?
