NOTD: British Punk

Today's NOTD was inspired by Kaka's British Nail Art and the punks with their long Mohawks in Camden in London. Here were my nails at first, I changed it as I felt as though it was too clean and needed more to it.

Colors I used were Illamasqua's Throb, Scorch and Force. The skulls were used using Andrea Fulerton's nail stickers. Originally, they are a grey/silvery color but I used nail varnish remover on it to make it black.

NOTD: Branches & old 3D Camo Nails

I tried using my nail brushed with nail polishes, turned out alrightish. I think I'm going to have to invest in acrylic paint if I want to get it all to come out neater and make the brush easier to use.

A few previous ones, back when my nails were much longer (mostly just nail experimentation):

LOTD: Purple Dust

Flash showing Illamasqua's Static in action

Urban Decay Lust 24/7 eyeliner
Sugarpill Paperdoll
Inglot Purple D.S 491
Inglot Highlight Pearl 393
Illamasqua Static
Illamasqua cream pigment in Dab
Illamasqua precision ink

Illamasqua's Galactic
Illamasqua's Feisty

I know the color combo for this is weird, use the red pencil (Feisty) to line and fill your lips, then take a little but of illamasqua's Galactic and apply to your lips and rub it in, repeat once more and you should notice the color being sort of coppery. 

I'm hoping to do a makeup series of some sort but I still need to figure out what to go for. I'll look into it more after my exams are over I think. Thanks for reading!

NOTD: Sunset Nails (MoYou Massive Nail Art Plate)

I was quite pleased with these nails, it's a shame that one of my fingers smudged massively but I thought it kinda looked cool on it's own (out of place with the others though). The pinky is meant to have some sort of scorpion, (I assume it's a scorpion as opposed to a lobster).

Method and MoYou's Massive Nail Art Image Plate after the jump!

Tips & Tricks: Using Loose Pigments as Lipwear

So today I used Sugarpill's Magentic on my lips. I thought the color was gorgeous. The finish was definitely different, had a frost finish to it. It lasted for a few hours. Only major issue was when I ate food and some of it disappeared hence why it only lasted for such a short time. Oh well. 

This is how I did it, all in 3 easy steps:
1. Apply inglot Duraline onto your lips. 

2. Dip your makeup brush into your desired color. This color is Sugarpill's Asylum

 3. Apply to lips

& Voila! Finish! It's that easy!

Don't feel afraid to use other unconventional colors!
 Sugarpill's Absinthe

Inglot AMC Eyeshadow 58

I also tried using standard eyeshadow, it worked but it was a bit flaky. My only recommendation would be to maybe add a clear lipgloss as well.

NOTD: Dotting Gradient

I absolutely adore these nails I've done today. They are pretty straightforward to do as well. A simplistic idea with an awesome finish, I couldn't stop staring at my nails all week!

The colors I used in this were Illamasqua's nail polishes in scorch (white), gamma (orange), obsess (pink), poke (purple) and the black was a barry m nail polish. After the white base dried up, I began dotting at the lower bits of my nail and worked my way outwards using dotting tools. As you can see it turned out beautifully.

The following nails is what I came up with before while playing around with my dotting tools. It came out pretty messy in some bits. 

I didn't wear it long but it's always fun to experiment! The light pink polish is Illamasqua's Loella, the white is called Scorn and the dark pink is called obsess.

So that's that, thanks for reading!

LOTD: Color Asplosion

 Today I wanted to move away from all of the eyeliner that I normally tend to ear and felt super colorful today. As I was wearing all black I felt like I needed more color after applying the eye make-up so I decided to put in my purple extensions. I was pretty pleased with the overall look. Commence camera whoring pictures: 

A few close up shots:

Products used on the eyes were:
-Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow in Afterparty
-Sugarpill Pressed Eyeshadow in Tako
-Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Absinthe
-Sugarpill Loose Eyeshadow in Darling
Along with a little bit of Mascara

I really need to invest in a tripod for myself 
Love, Mish

An amazing late 21st Birthday Gift

Can you guess what the gift was?

It's so cute ^^

Basically, for my 21st, I held a internet meme party and I dressed up as nyankat. Here was my makeup that day (sadly I didn't have any pics of my rainbow colored nails):
I ended up using liquid liner on my face since the quality of my black face paint was awful!

And me in full costume:

LOTD: Purple Eyes, Pink Lips

This is a pretty basic and easy look I do if I don't have a lot of time on my hands and I have a really long day ahead of me. Apply liquid liner, whack on some lipstick, wham done. The liquid liner is incredibly long lasting and its a simple look with just that little extra amount of edge to make it different which is why I love it so much.

I used Make Up For Ever's Aqua Liner in number 8 for this look. I love this product it is very long lasting. I applied this on at around 1 in the afternoon and by 1 am, my eyes were still in perfect condition! My lipstick was the only thing that needed reapplying. I need to look into getting some more colored liquid liners.
Anywho, hopefully in time I will be posting up some more complex looks.

I haven't posted this to show off, just to show what these polishes look like. This collection has been growing for at least 2 years. Ever since my first polish, Strike, I've fallen head over heals over the quality and range of colors. These pretty much make up 90% of my actual nail polish collection. I love them, aside from the lighter colored ones, the rest can pretty much be applied in just one layer since they're reasonably thick and pretty quick drying in my opinion.
         Thanks for reading <3
