Yesterday I randomly wanted to wear pink. I am not usually a pink enthusiast. I like the musician, think it is cute on baby girls... but just don't find it a color to wear alone on myself. So here we have it. A rare day of myself in pink eyeshadow. Maybe this color will grow on me, but I am not counting on it.
NYX- Strawberry milk
Concrete Minerals- Prude
Evil Shades- China Doll (this is a blush color but I used it as an eye shadow)
Sugarpill pressed eyeshadow- Bulletproof
MAC Technakohl Liner- Full of Fuchsia
Hope everyone is beating the heat somehow. I know its been crazy here. We had a week straight of over 100 degree weather. Tell next time... Happy polishing!

Happy Independence Day or as most people know it 4th of July. This is my LOTD. I played with and toyed with this idea for awhile before finally finalizing this for todays LOTD last week. I am very happy with it.
The stars are just craft stars that are glued on with eyelash glue.
For a full list of products used check out my makeupbee page.
Now for my nails I used a Revlon color named Blue Lagoon. Its a Pastel blue with a silver shimmer in it. Three Konad stamping polishes were used as well (red white and blue) including a konad plate for the stamped splater looking overlay.
For a tutorial on how to achieve more than one color in a single stamping see HERE. An FYI the tutorial is a bit loud so turn down your speakers... but it does give the general idea on how to get the nail look I did. Video quality isn't the best either, still best I could find on the web after searching. This tutorial is now on my list for a future blog posts.
Could not for the life of me tell you now what plate I used... I pulled a no no and broke into the nail box and already re-taped it up. I think the family may suspect my breaking into closed boxes but if I keep breaking into them they might think it ok to do the same themselves. Best just leave the box alone and keep the plate number a mystery eh?
As always happy polishing! And having a wonderful/ safe Independence day.
