Yodel Me on My Cell while I Simmer & Shimmer

This was my first attempt at a full glitter gradient mani.  Not too bad & very blingtastic

Happy Halloween!

I feel like something out of Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas.  It's AWESOME :D

Now I can't remember exactly what I used LOL 

White Matte on brow bones
UD matte Cult on lids
Black & charcoal mattes gradient on top of UD Cult on lids
UD 24/7 Liquid liner in Perversion to draw designs and line eyes
Buxom Shade stick in Smokin Pistol thick lined outer rims & waterlines
UD Woodstock lightly in the crease
L'Oreal Project Runway Raven's Blush
Kat Von D Celebutard lipstick

False lashes in two different designs.  One spikey, the other super long, crisscrossed & sweeped out.

I had fake flowers all stuck in my hair, but you can only see the one white rose in the pic.  And yes folks, that is the natural state of my hair.  :D

One of the coolest white nail polishes... ever

I'm not exactly sure why I was drawn to this, but I buzzed like a bee right to many months ago when Revlon released 4 Matte Suedes to their line.  I absolutely LOVED this look, especially w/ a topcoat!  Application was a little finacky as a matte can be, or even a white for that matter, but it dried quickly, covered well & the end result was a total winner for me.  The color itself looks white w/ a subtle blue pearl in the bottle.  On the nail the milkiness of the white took on a pinky flesh tone for me with the blue pearl morphing into a sort of glow. I think I loved this so much because it was crisp & clean but kinda funky all at the same time.  This was 3 coats w/ topcoat.  I realized I should have taken photo of the matte suede look PRIOR to topcoating but sometimes I'm a little slow on the uptake :)  Oh well, there's always next time!
