Nails 101

This Sunday I spent some time removing my acrylic nails. I put them on a few weeks ago, and I'm too lazy to do a fill, so I just took them off.

I used the soak off method then finished up with a mini-manicure. Here's a couple videos showing what I did. This videos are older, but it's what I did this time around.



After I removed my nails I covered them up with Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet Nail Polish

FOTD - Satuday Springtime Rainbow

It's been so beautiful out lately I thought I'd reflect some of that colourful beauty in my make up. Here's my Face Of The Day from Satuday. Let me know if this is something you'd like to see in a tutorial!

See it on Facebook

The eyes are all from my Ben Nye Lumiere Pallet. I have on Joe Fresh Hydrangea Blush and MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick.

Blackest of Black

I'm always on the quest for the best eyeliner, and I had the chance to pick up the famous Urban Decay 24/7 Perversion Waterproof eyeliner. I have zero, and it's been a steady favorite for a few years now but it's no where as near black as Perversion.
In my rotation as well is MAC Smoulder, it's a great pencil to smudge out. Lets take a look at how dark it is.

They're all pretty dark, but I have to say that Perversion is the darkest I have now. My next eyeliner to hunt down is MAC Feline. That's also rumored to be the darkest black eyeliner.
