FOTD Friday: Purples Eyes and Purple Nails

Purples have struck me again! Can you believe this? It’s out of control really. I think my last few FOTDs have been surrounded around purples. There is clearly something in the water. I’m hoping that I can break this streak and dabble into more colors. But for right now purples are rocking my world.

Remember when I showed ya’ll the fabulousness that is Stila’s Barbie Smudge pot in Purple Pumps? I decided to use it as a base. I find that it’s a little tricky because it is super glittery. It takes quite a bit of packing on.

But I managed to crank out a little somethin’-somethin’…

MAC Studio Finish concealer in NW45

MAC blush in Sweet As Cocoa

Too Faced Shadow Insurance
MAC Nocturnelle e/s

MAC Vibrant Grape e/s
MAC fluidline in Blacktrack
NARS Albatross highlighter
Urban Decay 24/7 liner in Zero
Lancome Oscillation mascara
Inglot lipstick in #204

I am lovin’ that lipstick!

….and then there are the nails. I used Essie’s Matte About You over Diamond Cosmetics’ Crushed Velvet. Whoa!

And I’ve fallen in love with Color Club’s Wild at Heart.

Seriously the best polish I have seen in my entire life. But I say that about everything right?

Purples are amazing. On the eyes, on the nails, on the lips, in the hair….I’ve done it all. And I hearby retire purples for at least a good 2 months!


Okay….NOW I’m done. :)

Happy weekend, y’all!

Stay beautiful,

    Love purple on you! I'm not feeling the matte love, but the CC is stunningly gorgeous. I want it SO BAD now :) I'm just about the lightest MAC Face and Body foundation color (C1), with brown eyes, dark brown hair. Purples look pretty good on me, but I wish I could pull off the vibrancy that you can! You totally inspire me :) I'll play with what I have this weekend, and see what I can come up with.

    Brit- You look GORGEOUS in purples, no wonder you love them soo much! I like how purple pumps doubles as an eyeliner and base, it looks gorgeouss. :) I'm not too keen on matte nails, but I've been thinking about trying Diamond cosmetics for awhile now. I have to admit I'm not too big of a fan of online ordering though. 😛 I was wondering if you could do a review on YSL's Volume Effects Faux Cils mascara, I've heard some really good things about it!

  • Mama Mish Mash

    Purple looks pretty on you, no wonder you love them!! Loving the Color Club polish…I don't quite get matte polish though…I like my nails super shiny.

    Hyzenthlay—> I know…when it comes to mattes you either love 'em or hate 'em. I'll choose a holographic polish over a matte any day! Vibrancy works on any skintone, darling. A nice strong base is the key. Play around this weekend and let me know what you come up with. :)

    Lora—> Aww, thank you so much! Yesss, that is the BEST thing about gel liners. They can be liners AND bases. Lemme tell you something, Diamond Cosmetics is a pleasure to order from. Trust me on this. This coming from someone who neeever liked ordering online. And you know what? I think I'm going to check out that YSL mascara. I think it's a sign. You're the 7th person who asked me to review it. I'm on it!

    Mama Mish Mash—> Thanks sis! I looooove purples. And yep, mattes take some gettin' used to. :)

    Whoa, I love the eyes and the nails! Matte polishes look so cool to me, though I've never tried them.

    Love the purples – actually, I've been obsessing about purple nail polishes lately, reviewing them like a mad woman! Glad I read your post – I wasn't familiar with Colors. Now I'll just have to get it! :)
