Negative space manicure

I’ve LOVED the negative space nails (nail art where areas, often geometric, are left bare) that we’ve seen everywhere lately, but I haven’t really gotten around to trying it myself.

First of all – I suck at nail art. A few times I’ve managed to do something cool (for example these blood nails, frickin love them) but that’s just pure luck to be honest. Second of all – My nails are a bit stained from polishing all the time so the design has to be around the cuticle where the nail is less shitty. But hell, let’s just do this! What’s the safest way of doing it I thought?

I cut tape triangles and stuck them to the base of the nail, threw a coat of opaque black Cirque Memento Mori on top, peeled the tape off, top coat, boom done. And it worked so well! I can definitely imagine doing this in other colours in the future. White will be awesome.

Don’t they look quite classic? Like a half moon manicure but.. gothic and spikey.

NABLA Cosmetics Eyeshadow – Mega swatch!

Idag fick jag ett MEGAPAKET fina saker från NABLA Cosmetics, ett italienskt sminkmärke jag inte ens visste fanns. Billiga, fria från djurtester och så vitt jag sett schysst koll på ingredienserna. Jag visste knappt var jag skulle börja, enligt er input var skuggorna sjukt bra så det fick bli med dem!

Holy shiiiite vad bra skuggorna är! Allt ni ser nedan är swatchat på bar hud, formulan är oförskämt bra på de skimriga, de matta är också bra men kan inte mäta sig med skimren. €6.50 (ca 60 SEK) betalar du för en refillpanna du kan stoppa i en magnetisk palett eller så betalar du €7.90 (ca 75 SEK) och får skuggan i en plastdosa. Paletterna jag stoppade mina i fick jag också, det finns två storlekar som var rymmer 6 eller 12 skuggor. Dessa ligger på €6 och €10.

Ni kan shoppa NABLA på nablacosmetics.com, all info om fraktkostnader finns här.

 

Today I got a MEGA PACKAGE from NABLA Cosmetics, a Italian makeup brand that I didn’t even know existed. Cheap, free from animal testing and as far as I’ve seen quite clean ingredients. I had no clue where to start, according to you the eyeshadows are da bomb so that’s where I ended up!

Holy shiiiite these shadows are good! Everything you see below is swatched on bare skin, the formula on the shimmery colours is so good it’s rude, the mattes are also good but they can’t compare to the shimmers. A loose pan that you can put in a magnetic palette is €6.50 and they’re €7.90 if you want the shadow in a plastic compact. The palettes I put mine in I also got, there are two sizes available where you fit 6 and 12 shadows, these are at €6 and €10.

You can shop NABLA at nablacosmetics.com, all info about shipping is available here.

Parisian Pink

I’ve worn stupid amounts of dark brown eye pencil lately, I apply it in this thick smudgy cat eye shape and smudge it with my fingers, dab some highlighter on the inner corner and pack LOADS of mascara on. Mascara smudges, asymmetrical lines, uneven blends? Don’t care. Totally obnoxious and I love it!

To get that dirty golden sheen I first line the top lid with an intense sparkly gold eye pencil (Make Up Store Czar), then I go over it with a dark shimmery brown (Make Up Store Seduced By The Dark) on top. It makes the result a lot deeper and softer than if I would do it the other way with the gold on top of the brown. This method works great with purples, greens, any glistening shade with something darker and more neutral on top.

Livsstil, Tävling

Tävling! Vill någon ha mina flångnya Adventure Time-mobilskal?

Detta låter ju spontant som årets mest sponsrade inlägg, mobilskal i bloggen? Alltså låt mig förklara.

För lite drygt en månad sedan Ebayade jag hem två mobilskal med mina favoritkaraktärer från Adventure Time, och några dagar senare blev min telefon stulen. Är verkligen skitsur över hela grejen, har gått utan telefon i en månad i ren protest men idag beställde jag mig en iPhone 6 så jag kan komma tillbaka till t.ex. Instagram och öh, börja ringa/smsa igen? Det blev ju dessutom så jäkla deppigt att få hem mina fina skal och inte kunna använda dem. Haha. När jag gnällde över detta för sambon så sa han bara “men lotta ut dem då?” HUR SMART. Skämdes nästan lite för att det var så självklart att ni ska få dem. Ni som är så fina.

SÅ! Fellow Adventure Time-knäppskallar med Iphone 5/5C, vill ni ha ett skal?

Frenchie

Would you look at that! A makeup look from last month that I forgot to post. Sadly I can’t remember what I wore on my skin/brows, but the lips are ColourPop Lippie Stix in Frenchie! I LOVE this intense red, total cartoon lip.
