I read about the new Hema Chameleon nail polishes. There are 6 variations and I’m a total sucker for duochrome nail polishes so I really, really wanted to have some of them. In the end I bought 2 because I first wanted to try them out. I figured I could always buy more if I really like them.
I don’t do a lot of nail polish swatches because my nails are not that long but then I realised: I don’t have a problem with that. So why should you? It’s about the colour that I want to show you, not about my nails. So I sat in my garden and swatched my butt off.
Here’s the first polish I really wanted to show you: Hema Chameleon Cobalt. A true cobalt blue, so pretty!
I was having one of those “Ugggh, I should not have gotten out of bed” days and I figured maybe I could try turning frustration into creativity. It didn’t work out exactly as I wanted: in the progress 2 jars of pigment hit the floor (covering EVERYTHING in a thin layer of sparkly green and bronze) and my mascara alsmost wounded me severely.
But in the end I managed to get something out of it that I’m pretty happy about.
When I made this look I had enough time to do a tutorial for it. It always takes a lot of time, not only to make all the pictures but also to crop them and to write the different steps. Even though I’m always happy with the result when it comes to these tutorials, I don’t make them nearly enough. I should really change that but realistically, I don’t think it will, lol.
But for now, let’s just be happy I finished this sucker right here. I hope you like it!
I made this look some time ago and I wanted to put the blogpost together in my nightshifts. But apparently the browsers in old computers at my work can get so terrible crappy that WordPress simply refused to cooperate. After nightshifts I was completely beat up and needed all my energy for simple life stuff. So the blog thing just had to wait.
I might even have quiet times like this more often because lately my heart isn’t entirely into makeup. I’m just struggling with this winter depression thing and even though it’s not as bad as it used to be the previous years, I like to focus on other things right now.
Enough blabla, here’s the look I came up with.
I thought about doing something with my Universe series again so I picked out a picture that I really liked, got my glitterliners out and had some fun with it.
Here’s the picture I took as inspiration. This time the look came out a bit different from the inspiration but I just love glitter so I like it anyway.
