Random EOTDs Part 5

Ugh. I don't know what's wrong with with me. I just can't get back into the swing of blogging. I've lost my mojo! And it's not just with blogging either. I'm just sort of passively letting the days go by, not accomplishing anything or really even doing anything at all. I still feel like I'm living in my life in limbo and just waiting for something to happen. What that something is I don't know anymore. Hrm. I'm curious what everyone else does when they find themselves stuck in these ruts. You know things are bad when I'm wearing really boring makeup. The makeup apathy is fairly new and I managed to do a few interesting things to my eyes before I devolved into just wearing ONE (gasp!) eyeshadow on my eyes nearly every day. Of course I don't remember any of the products I used, haha. I still haven't learned to write these things down.

Okay, editing these pictures made me want to go play with makeup again. Even though I just washed/moisturized my face, haha. The good news is that all my makeup and nail polish was just brought to me. To be honest I'm a bit overwhelmed by all that I have. I really need to go through it all and hopefully have a blog sale. I just don't know if I would have enough interest for it to be worth it. I have a $3000 estimate from the dentist to fix my teeth. And I need to get it done before I run out of insurance in a few months. Fun. So needless to say I need some money!

Nailed It! My Attempt At Nail Art

First of all a confession- I am TERRIBLE at nail art. Anything beyond slapping a few coats of polish on my nails is completely beyond me. I can stamp, water marble, dot, gradient... anything. This is how all my nail art attempts end up. So when a group I'm in had a challenge to do a plastic wrap nail art thing I knew I had to be crazy to even try (here is the picture tutorial for it). I actually kind of like how it turned out. Surprisingly. And don't ask me to do it again because it will never happen. Of course my one miracle in life would be that I happened to be semi-successful at nail art that one time. Haha.

I first did a base of Zoya Kennedy (this was probably unnecessary as the colors I used on top ended up being opaque enough). On top I blobbed on three Wet n Wild Megalast colors- Club Havana, I Need A Refresh-Mint, and On A Trip and smooshed them around with plastic wrap. I needed some sparkles so I used Pure Ice Busted on top of all that.

And of course, the obligatory pug picture. We have a pear tree in our backyard and the pears are just about ripe. For the past several months the tree has been dropping even the unripe pears like crazy. My silly dogs, especially my pug, LOVE those damn pears. They will sit outside all day eating them. So, I give you a  picture of a pug eating a pear.

Random EOTDs Part 4

I was just poking around in the depths on my computer and found a folder of EOTDs from approximately one lifetime ago (about 10 months). They aren't too exciting, but I thought I would share them anyway. I'm sad because I think instead of improving my makeup skills have gone down! Haha. I still don't have 95% of my makeup with me, but hopefully that will be rectified soon. I've been promised anyway. But I've heard that before so we'll see. Looking at these I miss my gold liquid eyeliner! I hope it hasn't dried out by now because I certainly can't afford MAC these days. Of course after this long I have no idea what eyeshadows I used. Haha, I really should start writing it down as I don't even remember from the pictures I took last week. I have more faith in my memory than I should, haha

And the obligatory pug picture. She is in the act of one of her favorite activities, licking.

I Love Me Some Flakies

I fell in love with flakie polishes the first instant I saw them. I was lucky enough to be able to snap up Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure when it came out like 2 years ago. I was torn between using it all the time because I loved it so much and never using it because I loved it so much and didn't want to run out, haha. So I was glad when polish manufacturers finally realized how awesome flakies were and they became more readily available. If you don't own one you need to rectify that situation immediately! I know Essie runs a little bit on the higher side for a drugstore polish (although it used to be salon only!) but Shine of The Times is a must own (it's basically a Hidden Treasure dupe).

This was back when my nails were long and pretty. Sigh. I need to start taking my biotin again...

This is 2 coats on Nicole by OPI Party in The Penthouse with a coat of Essie Shine of the Times on top.
