Spiderspins: A Nail Art Tutorial

I know it's been a while since I uploaded a normal post, but things have just been so hectic lately. I've had deadlines galore which led to me now having time to do anything else. 

But! Now I'm back and just in time for some Halloween nails! I love themed nails; they allow for so much creativity. For Halloween you could have: zombies, mummies, blood, spiders etc.

I decided to stick to a more traditional Halloween icon: the cobweb. This has always been the hardest one for me, in past years, as the fine lines always end up squiggly. I can't seen to keep completely steady when using a thin nail art brush, especially on my left hand. So I came u with a solution; i'ts not anything new.

I purchased a large bumper pack of 24 sharpies from Costco last month and I've not had anything to do with them. I remembered reading of a person who used sharpies to draw her nail art on. 

I though I'd replicate the method. I used Collection's LE Mardi Gras in white out to create the background; making sure that there was an even and completely opaque layer on the nail. I had to make sure the polish had hardened enough as to not drag when using the sharpie. I used a black fine tipped sharpie to first create lines going from the corner of the nail, before joining them up with curved lines.

Make sure to use a top coat, otherwise the sharpie will start to smudge and a purple haze will begin to spread from the webs. I woke up this morning with them smudged so badly that the webs were indistinguishable from the rest of the nail.

I would like to say a thank you to those who read this little blog! It means a lot, guys. 

I'd love to know what everyone thinks, so drop a comment if you want.

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips. 

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!
