FOTD - Purple Smokey Eye


Hiya! I wanted to make a quick post so you know I'm not dead (just sick with the flu... still), so here, have a FOTD!

I attended the wedding of 2 good friends last night, and went with a purple smokey eye to match my dress. Please excuse the photo quality... it was dark by the time we got home, and I didn't want to bust out my studio lights and Canon :P

I used:
Urban Decay Underland (Alice in Wonderland palette)
Urban Decay Vorpal (Alice in Wonderland palette)
MAC Carbon
MAC Gesso
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner

Zoya Entice & Ignite

It has been so very long since I have swatched anything for you, but a few weeks ago Zoya was having a BOGO sale on their fall collections, and I jumped on it to pick up a few colors I have been coveting.

All of these are from the Entice & Ignite collection, which is split into 6 cremes (Entice) and 6 metallic shimmers (Ignite); however, as you can see I only got a third of the colors. With that said, lets move onto the pretties!

Sansa
Sansa is a stunning eggplant purple with gold shimmer. This is the one I was looking forward to the most ever since I saw the previews way back when, and it certainly did not disappoint. By far my favorite of the 4.

Yuna
Yuna is a pretty unique grey shade with green undertones, topped off with gold shimmer. I grabbed this one mostly out of curiosity and ended up falling in love with how the base color can't make up it's mind between green or grey.

Remy
Ah, Remy... a dark blue base loaded with green and gold shimmer. What a stunner! I have seen people compare it to Charla, and while they are similar, I like to think of Remy being Charla's older, darker sister.

Ryan
And last but not least, we have Ryan! This one is a dark navy creme, which looks nearly black out of direct light. I am a huge fan of colors that try to trick you into thinking they are black, but are still true to their "roots". Keep in mind that my swatch is in bright light, so you can see the blue, while it is actually darker on the nail (so hard to capture an in between photo!)

There you have it, pretty, shiny polishes to get back into the swing of things! As always, Zoya never disappoints and all of these went on smooth as butter (especially the creme!) and were opaque in 2 coats.

Which of these is your favorite, and have you picked up any polishes from the Entice & Ignite collection?

4th of July/Captain America Nails

So, I realize that the 4th of July was a couple of days ago, but alas, I didn't get around to taking a pic and putting this up until just now. My bad. What's funny is that I started this with the intention of being an Independence Day mani, and after finishing I realized it has Captain America written all over it! Two birds with one stone, score! :)



Products used:
OPI Nail Envy Original
OPI Dating A Royal
OPI Alpine Snow 
Sinful Colors Nail Art in Be My Valentine
CinaPro Dazzle Shapes
CND Super Shiney

PS- Let me know if you would like to see a tutorial for this!
