Tapir and Polar Bear Look

A quick make-up look! This is Fyrinnae Tapir and Fyrinnae Polar Bear. Tapir is a plum purple in the jar, but goes very brown on my skin. In this look I put in on a dark base done with Nyx Jumbo Eye Pen in Black Bean, so it's even darker than usually. Not exactly the shade I was going for, but still looks nice!

Polar Bear is a light yellowish beige with a strong gold sheen. It usually works great with plum purples, but apparently it's also nice with a more brownish shade too :)

And full face, with a slightly smudged pink lip gloss stain (sorry!)

Outfit of the Day

This is me dressed as a black blob with cat hair sprinkled on top ;D I was in a hurry in the morning so I grabbed a few things from my clothes-that-have-been-worn-a-few-times-but-are-not-yet-dirty-enough-to-be-laundry pile. The dress I wore recently with a belt and the top was part of an outfit with a high-waisted skirt.

Poor little Magnus had to be taken to the vet, he's got an ear infection that was so bad it made him walk wobbly. But now he's been on antibiotics since the morning and is already doing better. I'm so proud of how well he behaved at the vet's, it was the first time we have taken him to be examined (he was neutered and vaccinated by the rescue organization we got him from) so you never know what to expect.

Dress - H&M
Top - H&M

This one is trying to show off the back of the dress but the pose is all wrong. The top has a scoop neckline and the dress is a very loose racer back. letting the top's pattern show nicely. While I did look like the Groke from the Moomin stories, it's a very comfy and easy outfit :)

Sugar Polish Gradient

I saw a post on Sanna Von Steam's blog with gorgeous sand effect glitter gradient nails and wanted to try my hand at these! I only own two shades of sugar nail polishes, but luckily they complimented each other just fine. The dark shade with turquoise glitter is Kicks Sugar Lacquer in Moondust, and the light green/blue with gold glitter is Ocean Crush by IsaDora. Sanna's nails are so cute and pastel, mine are a bit darker version :)

Outfit of the Day

Today I'm wearing a simple black skirt and a patterned top. Just an easy outfit for the office. I'm still a bit tired from the cold so just getting up and putting some clothes on is usually enough, but I wanted to wear something nice once in a while :)

Top - H&M
Skirt - H&M
Boots - Unif

Sticker Stripe Nails

I bust out my nail stickers finally! These nails are done with essence nail stickers in the form of long thin stripes. I had some challenges working with them because the stickers wanted to curl with the Seche Vite top coat, but other than that, I'm quite happy with the finished look :)

The basecoat is a gunmetal shade by KleanColor and there's Wet 'n' Wild glitter top coat on the tips to give it a little bling.

OMGWTF and Crypt Look

I almost never wear green, so the section for my green and yellow eyeshadows is the smallest one there is in my drawer unit where eyeshadows are stored. This time I wanted to do something to match my dress. It's a super old Lip Service dress made of China themed satin with safety pin accents. The seller had a horrible picture of the dress, but assured me the pattern on it was pink, so I got it for 25 euros. When it arrived the colour was a bit unusual, and with the muted pink it had red, green orange and golden yellow on it. I thought the green stood out the most so that was then the colour for my eyeshadow!

Full face. You can see the embroidery on the dress in this one, it's full of colours!

I used Fyrinnae OMGWTF for the inner corners, it's bright, light green. The crease is done with Detrivore Cosmetics' Crypt, a lovely olive green with a slight golden sheen. Brows are Inglot gel liner and on my lips is Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Dark Berry.

I'm so glad to be able to wear gel liner on my waterline! When I wore contacts my eyes just hated it, but now after Lasik it works!

Dark Heart Smoky Eye

Inspired by Heidi of Mustaa Kajalia, I wanted to wear a metallic red eyeshadow! This is Dark Heart by Darling Girl Cosmetics, worn as a smoky eye. There's only Sugarpill Tako, a matte white to accompany it in the inner corners and brow bone.

Yesterday I went to the tattooist straight from work and then headed for a beer afterwards. My flying furry thing is now finished with lovely lace around it! I'll take pictures when the arm is less swollen and I'm feeling better. Conveniently just in time for my first free day in forever, I came down with a cold. I'm still going to try and make it to my other half's band's performance this evening, fingers crossed!

And one of me and Magnus, just because he happened to be around when I took the pictures and wanted to sniff my nose :D
