Orly: Crisp White +"The Look"

Howdy howdy howdy, y'all! Since I got the new NAS kit, I figured it was high time I finished swatching the last one. Especially since they were kind enough to send a replacement for the broken bottle. (FYI: Since October is busy enough I'm pushing back my giveaway closer to my birthday, I have not forgotten!) Since I needed Bump In The Night for some pics (read: wasn't going to take it off yet) I grabbed Crisp White and doodled on some claws. Claws are Halloweeny!

I like how the water-based paint forms to the texture. It would have looked kinda stupid (imo) to have smooth, glossy claw-lines.

This was, as I'm sure you can imagine, super quick and super easy. No, the lines aren't perfectly straight, but nobody's going to look that closely anyway. Except you guys. ;)

Now, "the look". lol Way back when I first wore Cha Cha Cha I had this "brilliant" idea to break out the hot pink lipstick and cake my lips with loose pink glitter for some extra sparkle. Norma found that pic and fell in love with it and we thought it would be cool to see a texture/black version! I happened to have some black loose glitter, so...

......>_> hrm I think this is probably one of those things where it helps when the camera doesn't have macro. LOL Looks better out of focus, I think. Not one to let a good face go to waste I did take a couple of other pictures.

We've got my Frank N Furter-esque "bored beyond belief" face:

And my "groupie after a rough night" face:

I felt like a complete dolt after because I forgot mascara!!! *facepalm* Up-side, I did get the rest of my eye-makeup almost exactly the way I envisioned it. Starting to get the hang of different brushes doing different things. ;)

I have an idea so I'm going to swatch that Jessica Cinnamon Kiss tomorrow. Just need to find my sponges... Depending on how much I do or don't like it will determine if I show the sponging tomorrow or hold off until Tuesday. Hope everyone's having a great weekend! (^_^)"/" Take care and be safe.
