Tim Buton + Harpers Bazaar = One fantastic gothic fashion moment!!!
I love Tim Burton, and I'm so excited about Alice in Wonderland movie coming out in March. This shoot is so gorgeous, words fail me...

Finally feeling better!!

I've been a bit under the weather recently.. I got a 1/2 a really nasty sore throat. I say 1/2 seeing as that it was only on the right side.. (left side perfectly fine) which was really weird and yet still draining.. so thanks to penicillin my infection has gone, and I'm free to resume live life to it's fullest.

Summer is coming...

today was horrendously dismal. the dust that enveloped the city made it very gloomy. So to cheer myself up and to remind myself that summer is just round the corner.. I did this over the top mani.. glitter+ neon it's a little bit too much; but it's fun..

New things to play with..

eBay I LOVE you!! well for the moment anyway.. So I had a massive splurge session a few weeks ago, and almost everything arrived today. The MAC HK brush set is genuine, I did a comparison to my friends who bought theirs in store.. :)

MAC Hello Kitty Brush holder + 3 brushes

Assorted Nail Art Canes..

Well I'm going to have loads of fun with these.. I've just got to learn how best to apply them.

Ps I had a major nail disaster, my left thumb got caught in a door and had to file them all way down just to be even..

Drum roll please....

The winner of my 1st blog giveaway is.....


being in a slightly lazy mood, I felt that the traditional pulling a name out of the hat required a little more effort than so I used one of the many tools of the internet has to offer.. The research randomizer!

counting from the 1st entry I received I got to 5th email entry which was from Theresia...

Purple DJ's

My favorite color (at the moment) is purple.. in any shop I'm drawn to the purple item first.. my weekend mani is purple hounds-tooth, or as my ever eloquent friend put it.. "oh my gosh, it's like that david jones pattern but purple"

Revlon Not So Blue-berry, Konad Special polish in Violet, plate m63

Also got a couple of my ebay packages, a lot of 10 fauxnad plates and a backup MAC Hello Kitty Glaze Lipstick in Big Bow :)

Eyeko Polish

I swatched 2 out of the 6 Eyeko polishes.. Pretty Polish (pastel pink) and Pastel Polish (pastel blue with blue shimmer) and so far not terribly impressed, both of these had major streaking issues, both of them had to have at least 3 coats to cover all the bald spots.. and it took forever to dry! The brushes aren't as bad as i thought they were going to be initially, but the dainty little bottle feels like it could be knocked over just a little too easily. I love the color of Pastel Polish but would love to be able to fix some of the consistency issues with it.

Ps..I swatched the remaining 4 polishes, no problems what so ever, great application with just 2 coats. Disco Polish is the polish i was most worried about just looking at it's consistency but it dried faster than both Pretty and Pastel Polish.. It's a cute set, not sure whether I would by it again seeing as 1/3 of it has issues with application and though they're very cute bottles the colors aren't that original. Disco Polish would have to be my favourite with it's massive amount of glitter & resonable drying time.

Eyeko Haul

I got my package from Eyeko this morning, needless to say I postponed my studies till I examined all my goodies. Firstly the packaging is so cute, and very small! I haven't swatched any of the polishes but I strongly recommend cleaning the lids, as all of mine were seriously gunked up with polish. Unfotunatly I've run out of polish thinner, and the constistesy of Disco Polish is thicker than my Konad special polish :(
Eyeko baby polishes

Pretty Magic Eyes Set

The eyeshadow seems to have a decent amount of shimmer and reasonable staying power (Pretty Eyes), I would have prefered to have swapped the dark pink and the salmon color around just becuase it's a more wearable everyday color.. I have't yet tested the Magic Liquid Eyeliner, but i will keep you ladies posted when i do..
Free goodies!!
Yay!! I love free stuff.. I got a postcard, a Face Off cleanser wipe, and Beauty Rehab Rose Salve. On MUA I could only find reveiw for the mint salve. This has a reasonably thick consistancy and a pleasent rose scent. All in all the postage was quick, and I love getting things that I've been lusting after on sale.. + free stuff is always good!

Candy, candy, candy I cant let you go

I've had 'Candy' by Iggy Pop in my head for the best part of 2 days, I have kind of put it down to that Revlon Pretty in Papaya reminds me of a nice candy red/coral and smells so delicious!Pretty in Papaya
'Fruit Salad' with
Mad About Mango, Pretty in Papaya, Mon Cherry
my 'candy' heart

I had to do a simple very basic statistic exercise for uni involving multicolored candy, so once I counted it all and tallied up the results, I was free to play with them till the urge to devour them overcame me.

Boy, do I love the postman!!

well in all honesty I don't love him...but I do so love getting things in the mail! 1 of my packages from ebay arrived yesterday.. I was hoping that I would have more today but no such luck.. :(
My previous makeup obsession before nail polish was lip-gloss and I fell back in my old ways when i spotted a Lancome mini juicy tube charm bracelet.. I put a ridiculously small bid on it and won!! ($22 AU + P&H) CG Kaleidoscope Him Out, CG White on White tips, Konad Black S/P with plate 56

Went into the city today to meet up with a friend, they didn't show so I was left unchaperoned with my shopping compulsions.. Spent ages in Lincraft though only left with a hot glue gun, yellow thread for Luma plushie and some stuff to make a hat for the races...
current state of my plushie..

Popped in David Jones to scope out polish nothing grabbed me at the OPI stand so wandered round to Revlon.. and got different pack of fruit scented polish, 'Fruit Salad' with Mad About Mango, Pretty in Papaya, Mon Cherry. Pretty in Papaya is definatly my favourite. Revlon have a rather good gift with purchase at the moment Ii was tempted.. but I didn't have enough spare cash with a party coming up.

just to in case you go to DJ's spend over 39.99 and get a pack with a full-size Living Lipstick in Bamboo Bronze, Beyond Natural Skin Matching Makeup 15ml in Light Medium, full-size Fabulash Mascara in Blackest Black, full-size Classic Nail Enamel in Vixen and a full-size ColorStay 12-Hour Eyeshadow Quad in Blushed Wines

China Glaze Ghoulish Glow T/C

I must confess I love gimmicky things.. and glow in the dark nails is definitely in that category! I swatched one nail to test it's "glow"ability.. and was rather disappointed. However I then noticed the glow particles (or what ever they are) had collected at the bottom of the bottle (and was so thick the bbs couldn't move).. so the 2nd swatch was much better after a lot mixing. Though in the dark it was a little patchy with 1 coat.. 2 coats however did affect the colour of my polish dulling it slightly and very slight matte look but the glow was great!!

A little disappointed..

Well I tried out Jessica Endurance B/C, and Top Priority T/C (with China Glaze Flying Dragon) and I wasn't really impressed, the B/C dried fast enough, and the T/C dried with reasonable speed and great shine the downfall is that I only had my for 8 hrs before the polish started to peel off in massive pieces.. I only typed for a few hours, other than that I was reading text books and conversing with family not exactly extreme activity for nails.. but I'll give it another go.. before I give my final verdict..

Loved Flying Dragon, such a pretty neon purple with fine glitter!! I was going to 'nad' it but it came off before i had a chance :(

in other news went on eBay with the sole purpose to pay for one item.. ended my eBay session with 3 items paid for and 10 more that I've placed bids on.. will fill you in when i receive the items.. but I'm very excited!!

Boy, do I love a bargain!

I'm just a tad stressed about uni and attempting to retrieve my stuff from an ex, and a spot of retail therapy was just what Dr. Katie prescribed..
  • OC Nail Art, to top up my Konad collection, (scrounged Google for discount codes) ended up with only 3 special polishes (Jungle Green, Violet Pearl, Metallic Pink)and 5 disks (M50, M51, M59,M63, &M70) I intially had 4 time as much in my cart and culled it substantially which i'm most proud of..
  • Eyeko to buy the set of 6 nail polishes (thanks Nixxy!) I've been trying to resist these cuties for a while now.. but in my weakened state, i caved big time! (I used the code E4566 that i found)
  • Bought a remmant of bright yellow stretch fabirc from my local haberdashery for 75c!! so I'm planning on making a Plushie Luma (from Mario Galaxy) I discovered the pattern on DailyCute.net and I've been itching to try it!
So now i'm extraordinarily happy.. and while I'm waiting for my bundles of goodies to be delivered to my door I'll be making plushie/s!

Polish and Pelicans

I was just reminiscing about my first nail polish, it was kiwi scented shimmering green and came in a cute pencil inspired bottle. (Come to think of it, this is probably why I'm quite obsessed with green nail polish.) So when i saw that Revlon had released a scented range I knew this was something i had to buy.

No So Blue-berry,Passionate Fruit, Raspberry Rapture.

I searched high and low and found the 3 pack in my local Priceline for $24.95. Which is a bit of a bargain.. Also found Jessica nail polish for $2, having enough color to play around with i bought the Endurance Base Coat, Top Priority T/C and Nail Cure formula 1+2. I haven't tried them out yet and completely new to the brand, has anyone had any problems with them?

just a few pics of the local pelicans, they're rather strange almost magestic birds..

Ladybird nails

Went to Mooloolaba beach yesterday with friends.. I went with China Glaze QT it's very pretty and holographic in full sunlight. (and it went with my bikini) Well i got home got bored with just plain QT.. it dulls a bit in indoor lighting, so i funked it up with the help of my Ink and Kaleidoscope Him Out (both China Glaze)

Had a great day at the beach and didn't get at all sunburnt!! Yay for factor 30 sunscreen!!
