Nails: China Glaze Shape Shifter

I'm so sorry guys! It's been two weeks since my last post. A week of that was just a hectic work schedule, which happens from time to time, and then another week was because my home internet connection went on the blink. I now have functioning internet (I set up a router all by myself: I guess that officially makes me a mega nerd!) and I'm ready to go!

So today I have one of the China Glaze Tranzitions polishes. For those who aren't familiar with the collection, they change colour when you apply a topcoat. It's a neat idea. I'm glad I went with Shape Shifter because the transition colour was really different to the base colour. Here it is.

Eyeshadow: red with holo glitter

I have something a little brighter and more colourful than most of my recent looks. I wore this to a concert (Tomahawk, in case you were wondering) so I wanted something a bit fun. I used some shadows I've had for a while as well as my new Milani glitter.

Nails: OPI Stay The Night (liquid sand)

Today I have my first liquid sand polish from OPI: Stay The Night. It's a black base with red glitter in it. I got a mini bottle of it. I had no idea what to expect, apart from the finished mani, which I'd seen on a couple of blogs. It was just like applying a regular polish, with the only difference being in the finish and how it dried.

Eyeshadow: shimmer & bronze liner

This look is from a week or so ago. I've used two of my new goodies from my big US makeup haul. This was when I was running late for work, which is why it's a kinda boring, simple look. I used a Lush eyeliner and Buxom cream eyeshadow and I love them both. I can't wait to use them again in a look that's a little more interesting than this.
