Just a warning – real life has been getting in the way recently. I’ve got a lot of exams to do so I’m not posting as often as I should. Plus my sister has fucked up the computer with some sort of virus. So be warned – I’m not happy :@

Etsy purchases #3 and #4 🙂

Creepy Crawl hair clips by Cute and Creepy Inc on Etsy – $4.00

A new frock:

And the Holy Grail: successful pincurls. Perhaps not perfect, but good enough for me. I’ll show some pictures of the set first (as you can see, it’s waaaaay tidier than the other one).

The next photos were taken after an entire day at school…

Also two new make up brushes:

Ms Makeup Work the Angles Angled Eyeliner Brush – £5.49

Also there was a free gift offer in Boots when if you spent £6 on 17 cosmetics, you got a free set with a nail polish, eyeshadow and eyeliner in it. So of course, I spent £6.

You get the Fast Finish nail polish in Knockout Red…

… the Solo eyeshadow in Viva Diva…

… and the Perfect Definition eyeliner in Azure.

And it all comes in a cute little stripy tin 😉

Au revoir, mes amours!

The results aren’t actually too bad, but again, I would say that a decent set of nail polishes is absolutely necessary for this. The white undercoat on mine has started to go grey and patchy already, and paining over it just doesn’t look good at all. This just smudges really easily and that ruins the entire look of the nail. I used my new deep red colour to do the main part of the nail, and here’s a reminder of the instructions I used;


I found it a bit easier to cut the punch protectors into halves before sticking them onto my nails, as it sticks to the surface a bit better so you don’t get so much dark polish on the half-moon. As soon as you’ve painted the red onto the nail, remove the punch protector straight away. If you leave it for too long then when you come to peel it off, some of the nail polish comes with it.



The index finger of my left hand is one of the ones where the undercoat went patchy, so I painted over the half-moon but managed to smudge it in the process. You might be able to see that a bit better if you click on the image to open it up into a bigger picture.

And I think that these shoes may well be the most amazing thing EVER.

Paper concept shoes by NDEUR. Quite frankly, if I could marry an inanimate object, it would be these.

I don’t think they would support the feet very well, or indeed stay in shape in the rain, but I don’t give a damn because they are fucking AWESOME. This is the blog of the creators, NDEUR: http://ndeur.wordpress.com/

Have a nice Christmas everyone, or I hope you had a nice Hanukkah if you’re Jewish, or if you don’t celebrate any religious festival then just have a nice day 🙂
