NOTD Misa Toxic Seduction & Suds n sass EOTD and LOTD

Misa Toxic Seduction might my favorite green nail polish! *LOVE* I didn't even remember I have this one... It's forest green but with a hint of teal. Gorgeous! I used 2 coats over Orly Nail Armor and it was completely opaque.

Oih, Misan Toxic Seduction saattaa olla suosikkivihreäni! Miten olinkaan unohtanut koko lakan olemassaolon... Liikaa lakkoja? ^-^ Lakka on siis metsänvihreä ja mukana on myös sinertävää, ihan mielettömän kaunis. Käytin 2 kerrosta Orlyn Nail Amorin päällä ja ihan peittävää jälkeä tuli.



I also had to add lip swatch of my new lip gloss :D I added this photo to that older post too.

Ja olihan minun tehtävä eilisestä huulikiillostani vielä huulikuva :D Siis i h a n a! Yllä linkki postaukseen, johon lisäsin myös tämän kuvan.

Shopping... :D

I was going to buy anything... And here is my "anything" :D

MEXX Black for her-setti (tuoksu, suihkugeeli ja vartalovoide). Setti maksoi vain 12€, joten olihan se korjattava talteen, varsinkin kun olen ollut aikeissa ostaa tämän.

"The version for women, Mexx Black for Her wraps you with scents of peony, ginger blossom, black currant, marigold and freesia and top notes. A heart blossoms with lotus, pear, apricot, cedar and litchi, while a base comprises sandalwood, amber and vanilla." From Fragrantica.

Ja Body Shopista mustat kuorintahanskat, tuoksulyhty (ei kuvassa), persikka ja vadelma suihkugeelit.

This wasn't on sale but I had to get the last tube of MAC Cremesheen lipglass in Boy Bait from local MAC counter... I REALLY love this perfe…

Skin MD Shielding Lotion review

The product is fragrance, colorant & paraben free.



The reason I got interested is folllowing text, bacause I've really noticed the same with my own skin. I used to use the most heavy & oily creams and my skin was still SO DRY and cracked, now I'm using just moisturizing gels and gel-creams and my skin is not even dry!

"Conventional lotions only add artificial moisture to the skin temporarily alleviating t…

Delicate EOTD with Aromaleigh Zinnia

I've wanted to try Zinnia (Sping Solstice) for several days now, it just looks so nice in sample baggie. I was very surprised when I tried this: Zinnia is a chameleon :D It looks peachy in some light and iridescent pink in other! I really have just one color in my lid. Do I like? Not really... But I undestand why so many do. That pink tone wasn't perfect for me and I looked kind of tired.

Olen halunnut testata Aromaleighin Zinniaa jo muutaman päivän, näytti niin kauniilta persikkaiselta sävyltä pussissa. Olin todella yllättynyt, kun tätä kokeilin: väri melkoinen kameleontti! Näyttää persikkaiselta mutta tässä on voimakkaasti pinkkiä hohdetta mukana (mikä iridescent on suomeksi? :D). Pidänkö tästä+ Enpä juuri mutta ymmärrän toisaalta, miksi niin moni tykkää. Tuo pinkki hohde ei olleu ihan minun sävyni ja näytin vähän väsyneeltä (ainahan väsynyt olen mutta en yleensä ihan näin väsyneeltä näytä ;).

Tutorial or something with Aromaleigh Trillium & Forget me not

I promised to to do this "tutorial or something" just to show the way I apply eye shadow. I used Pigments from Aromaleigh's Spring Solstice collection: May Lily, Trillium & Forget me not.

Lupasin tehdä tämän "tutorialin tapaisen" ja nyt lomalla oli hiukan aikaakin :) Käytin pigmenttejä Aromaleighin Spring Solstice-kokoelmasta.

May Lily : My new favorite- the palest creamy greenish shimmer with sparkles of pink and violet.
Trillium: Vibrant, but wearable fresh Spring green full of shimmering green sparkles.
Forget-me-not: The lush turquoise of petals, sparkling with magical turquoise sparkles.

Tear duct area
-brush: Sigma pencil brush SS219
-pigment: AL May Lily




Hmm... Where are my lashes? ^-^

Lid
-brush: Sigma SS252
-pigment: Al Trillium





Crease
-brush: MAC blending brush 217
-pigment: AL Forget me not



Make sure you don't have too much pigment in your brush:
Varmista, että siveltimessä ei ole liikaa pigmenttiä:

My poor nails in Cedar green

Another too dark green nail polish! I need to lighten this, Mavala's nail polishes are cheap enough (edit: not that expensive in here, this was 4.35€, and widely available ;) so I can try it :D I've soaked my nails in Solar Oil all day... My poor nails are in terrible condition after Christmas.

I used 2 coats of Orly Nail Armor+3 coats of Mavala Cedar Green (251).Needs 3 coats to be opaque.

Pah, taas yksi liian tumma vihreä lakka! Täytyy varmaan vaalentaa tätä hiukan, Mavalan lakoilla sen raaskin ehkä tehdäkin ;) Olen suorastaan uittanut kynsiäni Solar Oilissa koko päivän... Kynsiraasut ovat ihan mennyttä näin joulun jälkeen. Käytin 2 kerrosta Orlyn nail Armoria ja päälle 3 kerrosta Mavalan Cedar Greeniä (no 251).


Indoors, with flash. It's greener in sunlight but no sun here, so doesn't help me much ;)
