I had some requests a few posts back about doing a look with the Nicole Love your Life hearts polish. Here I did a sorta sloppy gradient nail with Kate PK-20 polish and then Love your Life as a top coat, making sure to get 2 hearts on each finger and 3 on the thumb. It gets quite hard to pick up more hearts with the brush but you could probably pick them out of the bottle with a toothpick/skewer of some sort...
In the meantime I've also acquired Nicole Have a Heart polish (a red heart version). Couldn't resist not taking this picture with Yasumi's necklace - goes with a Queen of Hearts theme
I also got an extra set of the red and pink heart polishes, and will be doing a separate giveaway featuring them :)
Anyway a few weeks ago I was inspired by the Esprique tutorials that Rouge Deluxe posted, so I used the same application technique with the Lorac Pink Python palette.
Used the medium browns on the lid, the lightest shade to highlight, and the blue colour on the outer 1/2 of the lower lashline.
Although the brown colours did not come out well, they definitely showed up in real life. The top lash liner should definitely have been more smoky and thicker, but I forgot as I did it from memory. Next time I would smudge the dark brown colour over the brown liner.
Mascara was the Lorac Visual Effects mascara that came with the kit. I like it so far, the brush is tricky but the formula really lengthens.
I used the pink blush from the palette on the cheeks, and MAC Viva Glam VI SE lipstick (another new purchase I haven't blogged about yet!) Face was most likely Skinfood Aloe BB cream, and Armani Hi-Precision Retouch concealer for undereyes. FYI, that concealer does crease a bit...I wonder if I will ever find one that doesn't crease! :(
Oh and here are some pics from when I took the boyfriend out for his bday dinner. We went to Rodney's Oyster House as he loves oysters. I got too carried away with eating though, so I only remembered to take pics of the oysters but nothing else. The food was good though, and I like how they let you do 1/2 orders or share entrees. We had the oyster slapjack soup, and seafood stew entree (which had more seafood than actual liquid stew), and of course the raw oysters:
