A while ago I did a swap with a lovely lady I've been chatting to on Twitter for a while - I'd link you to her blog but she's between, er, topics? Anyway, I wanted to get some fullsize Meow Cosmetics shadows without paying their (frankly exhorbitant) international shipping fees. In return I provided some Aussie bits and pieces. No Vegemite, I wanted her to still talk to me afterwards!
I painted my nails with China Glaze Passion, a new acquisition. Unfortunately the end result was very streaky. I layered some gold-and-pastel glitter over the top to try and disguise it a bit:
This is without PE, folks. Just TFSI. Ra is liquid gold in shadow form. I know everyone raves about Goldilux from Sugarpill, but I probably won't ever buy it because to me, Ra is sheer perfection. It's not glittery or shimmery at all, just a smooth, gleaming metallic. It's ridiculously beautiful, and shows up on my medium olive skin, which is great. A lot of yellows and golds just sort of disappear on me. Not this baby.
I realised I didn't have any gold and purple earrings, so I dismantled a bracelet I hadn't ever worn, and made these really quickly before running off to uni:
I have six of the crackle beads left, so I could either make a bracelet with some gold chain between the beads, or I could use more wires to make a wide/long pendant. We shall see!
