Violet Roses & Caviar Nail Art ft Nail Pattern Boldness & Born Pretty Store

I wanted to recreate these nails I wore a while ago cause I liked the glitter placement and playing with micro beads. I used the same techniques in my lizard inspired Godzilla nails seen here. I thought I’d do a tutorial and also change up the colour scheme with some gorgeous purples from Nail Pattern Boldness, plus add these sweet as hell 3D roses from Born Pretty.

GRWM OCC Black Metal Dahlia Lip with Soft Easy Grunge ft Urban Decay & Sugarpill

I wanted to play with my new lip tar from OCC, the metallic one called Black Metal Dahlia. I thought I'd create a quick grungy eye look to go with it using the Naked 3 palette and some maroon tones from Inglot, with a shimmery touch form the Sugarpill Sparkle baby palette.

I've really been enjoying my Naked 3 pallet for any pink, purple or red eye looks cause it does a really good job of adding a touch of sickness around the eyes. Because sometimes I like to look a little “ill" with my make up. ;D

I really felt like adding a few tiny gold spikes to my lips and wearing this out to pizza at my friends house so I decided to test out a new adhesive called  pros-aide. This is the first time I'm trying pros-aide out and honestly it wasn't exactly successful. I think that there is a bit of a learning curve and I'm going to practice using it so I can give you guys some good tips. At the moment it's just me fooling around with it.

Enjoy!

Embellie Gellie Giveaway Announcement

Sorry for the lateness of my reply! Time got away from me and then I couldn't find time to make this little video! But anyway, as with my previous giveaway used a random number generator to get the winning comment. So here it is…

The random number generator game me this result.

And it matches up to this comment.

Ms. Blitz has changed her name to LADY BLITZ but the comment still matches her youtube account.

Enjoy your Embellie Gellie!

For the rest of you, if you want to get some of your own check out the Scraperfect website.

This was a sponsored giveaway thanks to Amy at Scraperfect, but only as far as the prize. My opinions and usage of Embellie Gellie should be pretty obvious if you've seen any of my videos with rhinestones and other sparkles!
