Sunset mani with Essence

This is Miami heat from the Miami Rollergirl collection that I recently wrote about. I am quite a perfectionist and it wouldn't go on 100% opaque and smooth because I was too impatient, so I added a quick coat of golden glitter and flecks. Streaks? What are you talking about?

Next I rushed to my window to catch the last bit of sunlight and snapped a few pictures. I managed to make about 5 before the sun disappeared, and none of them were focussed. Oh well, better luck next time :) The topcoat is Essence's Make it golden. I used it before in this mani.

What are your easy solutions when you can't get a mani just right?

MAD Minerals Finishing powders!

I have swatched most of the MAD Minerals finishing powders and will do a short review on all of them. The only ones I am missing are the SPF powder and Primitive, which is a matte powder that serves as a primer as well as a finishing powder. Read on for more pictures and my review!

Purple with a twist

Inspired by this fun color combination on Eyegraffiti, I decided to try something similar. I don't own a yellow eyepencil, so I chose orange, since it is still a bit of an unusual contrast.  I started off with a plain purple look, and later on the day I added some pink eyeshadow and orange eyeliner.

I wasn't the only one enjoying the sun...

While I was walking home past the old cemetary wall, this little guy caught my eye while he was sunbathing.

Essence Miami Rollergirl Dates on skates blush

I decided to put the polish and blush in two seperate posts because I felt like the blush would be overlooked, and it's such a beauty! This is my first blush from essence and I was pleasantly surprised with the formula. I swatched some of their blushes in store but the colors were often dull so they never appealed to me. Dates on skates on the other hand turned out to be very pigmented, and it's a current favorite of mine.
