Just a quick blogpost about a nailpolish!
About a week ago I posted in one of the Facebook nail groups I’m in that I was looking for a black nail polish with multicolour flecks or glitter. Not the chunky kind of glitter but the kind that you just start to notice when you really look at the polish a bit more up close. I have one that’s from an Essence duo called Ticket To The Show but that’s a tiny bottle and I really like the effect. But all the suggestions I got were either very different from what I was looking for or not completely black. And I really like me a beautiful black nailpolish.
Lucky for me the fantabulous Caroline from Lacquester is in that group too. She got in action and within no time at all, she made this polish!
It’s a bit different from the original but in all honesty: I love the one from Lacquester way more. Not in the least because it’s unique, obviously. But also because it’s a true black polish with a bit more sparkle than the original has and it catches the eye just a bit more. LOOOOOVE IT!
I’m no good at nailpolish shots, I’m fully aware. They usually look a bit sloppy, my cuticles are dry and my polishing is not even near perfect. But it’s about the polish and I’m just really excited about this one, so I just had to show it off a bit :)
Just one last picture!
I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Lacquester webshop but please do check it out, she’s an amazing Indie nailpolish webshop that deserves all the attention she can get. She makes great quality nailpolishes that are very special. You can just tell she put’s a lot of effort and love in her products. Oh and she didn’t name this polish, so I named it Caroline’s Constellation, haha.
Let me know in the comments what you think of this polish, you like it? Do you have any makeup products that were just a bit special to you because they are rare or even unique?
Autumn has technically passed a while ago but I still love those colours. I made this look with the colours of early autumn in mind. That time when you just notice the leaves goig yellow and golden but they haven’t fallen off just yet. I like that time of year because it’s usually still a warmer temperature but you can feel the cold starting to creep in.
I made this look with some of my Sugarpill pigments and pressed eyeshadows: Goldilux, Olivia, Subterranean and Diamond Eyes.
Hope you like it!
A have a soft spot for Sugarpill Goldilux because no matter what you pair it with, it always glows like a ray of sunshine. :)
Honestly, the only thing I really don’t like about this look is the sloppy brows. I just didn’t pay attention to them after I added my highlighter and now it’s sparkling up my brows. Oh well, sparkly brows are fun too. :)
I just did one eye and I didn’t like the pictures where I looked up or in the camera so there’s just one fullface picture. But those pictures are usually just to give you an idea of how it looked from a distance so this gives a pretty good picture of that, right?
I liked doing this look but I notice I’ve kinda lost the autumn mood, probably like I said: because it’s no longer autumn, haha.
I was having some fun with a new mascara from Essence. It’s an awesome colour and I figured I could pair it with blue eyeshadow to make the colour pop. Well… that didn’t turn out the way I wanted it! The mascara is well “pigmented”, if you can call mascara’s pigmented, but the colours from Sugarpill are just way too strong, haha!
So the colour of the mascara really doesn’t pop anymore but you can still see it, right?
I still love the shine in Magpie, when the light hit’s it. It’s so beautiful!
I did a double eyeliner to make it a bit more fun. It’s still not my favourite look but it was nice to experiment with this coloured mascara.
What do you guys think? Do you ever use coloured mascara’s like this? I personally don’t, I always use a black one but a little pop of colour is a nice change. What colours would you pair this mascara with? Any ideas I should try with it?
Please let me know in the comments!
I made this look with this picture as an “example”. Red, orange and golden and I also added glitter. These arent actually leaves on trees but the picture really captures the colours so beautifully. Love it!
I think the colours I used are a bit more pinkish red but other than that the look I made has all these colours in it.
I also added glitter because, well because glitter is fun. ;) But also because I have this one Gosh glitter that always reminds me of autumn because of it’s colours.
See? Glitters! They shift colour between gold and red to green. This glitterliner is almost finished and I know I’ll be so sad when I finally have to toss it away because it’s empty. :(
I used differens Sugarpill colours again: Goldilux, Asteria, @#$%! and Love+. I also used a little bit Moors Treasure from my Sleek Mediterranean palette to make the red in the crease a little darker.
What do you think of this look? Are you into autumn yet? Whay are your favourite autumn colours?
Please let me know in the comments!
I already uploaded these pictures to my Facebook page but I figured I’d keep all the Autumn series looks together on my blog. So here’s a little blogpost about it. I started the idea for this series with this picture and it needed a look to go along with it, right?
So I made a look with gold, orange, a brownish red and green. The colours in my look are not nearly as vibrant as the picture but I still like them.
I used Sugarpill’s Goldilux, Asteria, Midori and Olivia on the bottom lashline. And a tiny bit of Diamond Eyes below the brow.
The dark brown/red and green are from some of my Sleek palettes.
I didn’t do any fullface pictures because I only made up one eye and I was basically too lazy to do half-face pictures, hihi. Sorry!
I hope you guys like this addition to the All About Autumn series. There is another update coming but I still need to work on cropping those pictures and I started work again after my vacation so my spare time is limited so it might take me a few days.
I don’t have lots to tell but a lot has been going on in my life but that’s mainly preggo talk and I’m not sure if anybody is waiting on updates about that. I actually doubt it but if I’m mistaken: let me know. :)
And let me know what you think of this look, do you like it? What’s your favourite part about autumn? Please let me know in the comments!
