So here is basically the greatest mani I've ever done: The Guitar Hero Manicure. (Tim: I bought the green and yellow nail polishes just for you!!!)

These first two colors are so so so sheer. I put four coats for each one. I was disappointed, to say the least. Especially since the other polishes I have from Icing are super pigmented. The other colors are two coats each.

Note: don't you think these Icing polish bottles look a bit like China Glaze bottles? I don't own any CG, so I can't be sure.

FOTD: Friday Dec 19 2008

This is the FOTD I did for my parent's Christmas party. I used ELF eyeshadow in Silver Lining.

Products Used:

Let me tell you, I am loving this Wet 'n' Wild MegaGlo powder. This is in CatWalk Pink. Ahh, and I love that Maybelline Lipstick, but, it is sadly discontinued.

Sadly, no photo of the mascara, so I don't remember which one I used. :-(

To get this bright pink lipstick to look baby pink, I blended concealer onto my lips and let it dry before putting the lipstick on.

I have to say, I particularly like this eye look here.

FOTD: Wednesday Dec 17

For today's FOTD, all I used on my lids was was a really simple and inexpensive eyeshadow trio. I dunno, because I was lazy and it was there. :-) Anyway, not writing much today. I have to pack up my dorm for the winter hols.

This is a simple eyeshadow trio by a brand called
"Color Impact." My sis got it for my some years ago.
There were three of these trios in a little case.

I used Cover Girl Lash Blast in Black Brown

L'Oreal Lipstick in Cinnamon Toast

Lockheed Martin Christmas Party 2008 and FOTD: Sat Dec 13

Every year on the 2nd weekend in December (right around my birthday, actually) the Donaldson Center Lockheed Martin holds its annual Christmas party, sometimes at the Hyatt, usually at the Crowne Plaza. I was very pleased to have a lovely dress this year, thanks to a wonderful woman who is an alum of the college I attend. I was looking for a dress to borrow and she gave me this dress. Yes! Gave it to me! I was so excited. These photos are actually taken after the party, so I am missing a hair clip (had to return it to my sis) and Kevin's hair had been in a ponytail (he looked very dashing. The dress was a bit long, but that's what I get for being 5'2.

FOTD: Eyeshadow: Wet 'n' Wild Mega Eyes trio in Amazon Greens; Lipstick: Revlon (I don't remember the color, left it at my parents house. Wine something. It's a bid faded in the pix); Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara in Rich Black; Wet 'n' Wild Mega Glow Illuminating Powder in Catwalk Pink; ELF blush in Glow; Max Factor Silk Perfection in Cool Bronze; Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in Translucent Medium (I think);

I will have more pix up when I get some from my sis. :-)
