Claudia Nailpolish - 005 Ocean Deep

Category: Nails

 
Ocean Deep from Claudia is a blue shimmer with a green/yellow shift in some light.
It applies a bit streaky, which is no news when it comes to shimmers like this one. But the streaks do melt a bit when you put on a top coat.
 
It costs 45 Sek ( approx $7) And can be found in various swedish stores
 
 

You know what?

I've been in a really shitty mood lately. 

Since I stopped smoking 22 days ago my anxiety level has gone through the roof and it's not helping that my brain is trapping me inside my apartment. 
And no one wants to visit or give me a call to see how it is. 

Usually I've used the cigarettes to calm myself down when my anxiety had been high, but that was also the reason to why I smoked more.
 And now I've quit. 
And I haven't really found anything that calms me down yet.  

And since I'm feeling shitty and are in a really bad mood lately, I haven't really done any makeup.
 I haven't been in the mood, and my stupid brain hasn't let me either really.

I've done nothing else than sleep and watched meaningless TV shows that I don't have to think much through. Just to keep my mind occupied so I don't go and do stupid things. 

And what I want to say with this is that I'm thinking about taking some time off. Just to find myself again. 

Because right now I feel like I have to make posts. 
That I have to make atleast one makeup a day.
That I have to post something.

And I honestly don't like the feeling of being forced to do something. Even though the only one forcing me is myself. 

I'll hope you'll understand. I've just been so off lately, and I really don't like it. But things have finally found its way to me, even though I'm trying my best to push it down and not let it get to me.

But I guess that is what happends when you spend so much time with your thoughts as the only company.

Take care!

H&M Nailpolish - City & Zoo

Category: Nails

 
City is a hot pink nailpolish and Zoo is a Pink holo glitter topcoat. And they're really pretty together.
They go on really good and I have two layers of both of the polishes on, even though one could be good enough.
 
I got this set for like $1.50 or something like that a year ago or so, It was on sale and I honestly don't know what the original price was on it. I just had to buy it because of the glitter topcoat really. And I know that H&M dosen't carry this anymore, because I think it was from one of their summer collections.
 
And once again, Sorry for the paintjob..

Viva la Diva Nudie Palette VS. Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette

Category: Reviews

 
Do you remember when I first showed you guys the Viva la diva Nudie eyeshadow collection palette?
I Said somehwere in that post that I wanted to do an comparison between it and Urban Decays Naked 2 palette. And now (after I've forgotten it for a while) I've finally made one. Unfortunately I did it right when the sun started to go down, so I had to take the pictures in my bathroom. But hopefully this will help either way.
 
If you just put the palettes side by side like I've done on the top picture, it looks like two different palettes. the Nudie palette is a light cardboard palette similar to the Naked 1 palette just by judging it from the looks. and the Naked 2 palette is made from metal/tin.
 
 
But when you open the palettes up you will see how similar they are. The Nudie Palette is an exacty copy of the Naked 2 palette.  Only difference Just buy the looks of it is that Viva la diva haven't put any names on their eyeshadows (which I kind of hate..) and Urban Decay do have names on thwir shadows.
 
The big difference between these two palettes comes when you swatch them. Naked 2 which is a palette for $60 on Beautybay.com, While the Nudie palette is aprox $23,09 in Swedish stores.
So the quality DO differ from these.
But how much really?
 
Well, as my may see in my Nudie palette the colors that is supposed to be a dupe for Snakebite has big holes in it. And that is because that shadow is so hardly packed that you litteraly have to scrape off the color to be able to use it. if you just swipe you finger or brush on top of it, it will not pick up any color. That is my biggest complaint about the Nudie palette.
 
Otherwise the Nudie eyeshadows are pretty good. A bit chalky and a tiny bit hared to blend out compared to the Naked 2 eyeshadows that are smooth and buttery and blends like a dream, in my opinion atleast. You also do need to pick up a bit more to make the colors show up porpely with the Nudie, But that's very common with cheaper palettes like this.
But it is a good dupe if you really can't afford the Naked 2 palette since there actually is a $40 difference between them.
 
Unfortunately the Nudie palette is only available in Sweden as far as I know. I'm not sure if the brand do exist in Scandinavia, But I've only seen it in Swedish stores.
So if anyone outside of that are interested in it, I suggest you find someone who is willing to do a swap or something similar with you.
 
For the swatches I've done this; I've compared the colors side by side, and the first colorfrom the left is from the Naked 2 palette.
 

And as usual; The ligher colors have a hard time showing up on my light skin.
 
 
And here you can see that the Snakebite dupe is a bit harder to swatch than the rest of the colors.
 
Swatches are made on top of Urban Decay Primer potion and the tophalf on NYX Jumpopencil in Milk
 
 

Nails Inc - Brook St

Category: Nails

 
 
Brook st from Nails inc is a soft pink coral shade that is perfect for the summer!
although, my seems really bright compared to all the other swatches that comes up when you google the shade. No idea why or anything. It's more of a almost neon pink coral, not soft at all! or maybe it is just for me.
I like this color. but the brush is weirdly cut on mine. but it could just be the sample that I've got.
I think I've shown you this when I got it in a glossybox almost a year ago now.
Anyhow.
I've got 3 layers on since the brush is smaller than the regular sized one and therefore makes an uneven apllication.
But I think that it would go on smoothly with a different brush.
And I'm well aware of that I can't paint my nails properly, when I try to do it "the real way" it gets messier than usual, So I paint them like I do, which means there's alot of polish where it's not supposed to be, okay?
 
I don't really know where you can get a hold of this polish, or what it costs since I actually got it in a Glossybox. But I think I saw the brand atleast on sephora, And I think that if you can find the brand in a store you will probably find the color.
 
 

A Sweet Reminder

Category: My Life

To clean your brushes if you haven't yet :)
I know it is not the most fun thing to do in the world, but they need it. and you face will probably thank you for it since dirty brushes contains bacteria from your face and products.
I cleaned all of mine today! And from now on I'm going to try to clean the brushes at once when I'm done with it, instead of letting them all get dirty and clean all of them at once.
 
I will do an overview of my brushes, where I got them and what I use them for etc. Since some people have been asking me that for quite some time now.
 
Dirty brushes that screams "CLEAN ME! CLEAN ME PLEASE"
 
Not so dirty brushes + beautyblender and a powderpuff that is now drying.
 
 
 
 
 

Todays Look - Mint.

Category: FOTD - Blue

 
This is actually yesterdays look. I somehow just forgot about it. Mostly because this is quickly thrown together ( look at the liner, it misses pieces on the outer corner) since I went up early to follow Tom into Kalmar and take his stitches out. So I just threw this on. and took a coulple of photos and ran out the door. And when I cam home I took the memory card out of the camera and put it in my computer, and forgot it there..
 
Because I was playing Dablo III.
And I thought that I would edit these later on and such.
And then the expansion Reaper of Souls released, and Tom bought me it as a present, so we played that all night.
So far I like Act V in it. and my Witch Doctor has THE coolest helmet so far! It has a gigantic eye that looks around. And I've had a good laugh at the Pirahna ability, Specially the Bogodile one. *NOM* haha!
 
No, to be fair, I'll probably play that for a while, since I'm really stuck and uninspired in doing makeup. and I hate that.
I've not been feeling all to well since last summer either. Some things happened in my personal life, and things haven't really been the same since then. Even though I actually should be happier because of what happened, because people showed their true self and I got to kick them out of my life. But still. it's just been a weird couple of months for me, and I'm trying my best to funktion as a normal person, even though I'm not. But hopefully I will feel good enough to actually start doing looks and such on a regular basis as I did before.
 
Is there anything you'd like to se me write about on this blog?
Like some products that you've seen me use, Pictures of my day, Q&A, tutorials, pictorials.
Anything that could help me to get into the mood?
 
But I hope that you are alright, and that you will take care of your life :)
 
- Emily.

23 march 2012

Category: FOTD - Blue

How did I look on this particular day in 2012?
 
Well I did a mint green/blue look with tiny hearts, and I believe this is one of the last times I used Make Up Stores Matt liquid foundation, since it started to hurt on me, and made my skin look super dry and flaky for some reason. And I remember that not so long after this I found one of my absolute favorite foundations; the Maybelline Fit me foundation. Absolutely love that foundation.
 
And my editing skills were horrible, and it didn't help that my camera settings were weird. althoug I never really liked the Canon eos 1000 D that I had, I'm more happy with the 60D that I have now!
 
Maybe I'll do a recreation on this later on today, just for fun. I'm not sure yet though.

Todays Look - First Time

Category: FOTD - Orange

 
The weather is still going strong here in Sweden, atleast where I live. And it's just wonderfull!
 
Today I grew some balls and actually went outside for the first time with a "bright" lip! I'm not counting those times I've been rocking overdrawn drag queen lips on halloween, because then I am in character and it's a completely different story..
But yeah, I was on a bus and in different stores today with this, without wiping it of in the last second like I always to otherwise, And it makes me a bit proud! I have to many pretty lipsticks that is just sitting there and collecting dust. So I've come to challenge myself, that when I'm going somewhere, also depending on where, I should atleast try to pick another color than my usual "My lips but better" lipsticks and pinkish nudes. Although I don't think I will wear my green, blue and black lipsticks out in public, if it's not halloween or a masqurade going on, mostly because my balls are not that big yet..
 
Maybe I should to a "show and tell" where I show all of my lipsticks? Because I do have quite a few of them, and it would be fun so you guys could see what I have maybe? Although some of them I don't remember the name or the brand since I depotted them. But it could still be fun..
 
Back to the makeup!
I only patted the color on, so it's not as intense as it would be when I put it on normally, but like I said above, my balls just aren't that big, and this was a big step for me. I will have some pictures below where I've put it on and shows how it really looks.
And most of these pictures are taken when I got home. You can mostly see it on the outer corners of my eyes, since my eyes hates the sun, and I can't find my sunglasses anywhere!
Anyhow! I hope you'll have a wonderfull weekend filled with sun and maybe adventures!
Take care!

Todays Look - Spring Greens

Category: FOTD - Green

 
 I want spring with spring sun and spring flowers. I want to go outside with just a hoodie instead of my winter jacket. I want to have cosy picnics in the park, or starting to hang outside again.
I want the spring to go over to summer so I gan go to festivals, bathe in the ocean, maybe even get a tan.
I want so much right now.
