NYX, Konad... Haul

Hey hey everyone I'm super excited today because I have a little haul to show and tell =). I'm extra excited because I finally managed to get my hands on some NYX lippies which is hard to get in WA. Anyways the shop is called Discount Butterfly Cosmetics and its shop number 30 at the Wanneroo Markets. The store owner however did tell me that they are moving their store to the Morley Markets sometime next year I think. Anyways here is what I got...

The lipsticks order are as same as the swatches below
Left to Right - Sash, Echo, Celene, Iris, Orion, Raisin
While I was there I also got a Konad plate (nail stamping), some false lashes for school and a black base suitable for eyes cheeks and lips. All in all a good haul hahahaha.
Blog ya lata =D

Car Accident & Bella Prom Hair

Hello everyone, after getting such nice comments and feedback from you guys about my attempted Bella Swan Prom hairstyle I've decided to film a tutorial on it =). I was really hoping on getting it done today but unfortunately I was in a car accident so I'm feeling a bit scared and shaken, so emotionally I'm not fit to do any video's today. Basically a lady turned out in-front of me after not checking her blind spot properly. No one is hurt thankfully and the damage is amazingly quite minimal (I was going 60 km per hour before I braked at about 10 meters from impact) but I dare say that it would have been a lot worse if I didn't react as soon as I did and if I was even 5 km's fasted I don't know what would have happened. This happened at an intersection which has been known to be dangerous so for anyone in Perth I'd like to remind you all to take care between Orrong Road and Pilbara Street in Welshpool. From a report back in 2008 a total of 64 crashes have occurred here with 25 casualties. I must have angels watching over me. I fully understand the importance of drop 5 save lives now.
See how minimal it is? Sooooo lucky

Bella Prom Hair?

Hello everyone reading this =). Ever since posting my very first Bella Swan tutorial I have gotten numerous requests to do Bella's hair from the Prom (last scene in the Twilight movie). I think I attempted it way back but was unsuccessful. I would say that this is my number one most requested video so I decided to give it another go and see how it turns out. I've taken some pictures of the final outcome. Please tell me what you guys think and if its close enough to do a tutorial on it. I'm no hairdresser LOL. If I don't get any feedback in this posts comments or the side bar comments I wont be doing the tutorial. I hope you guys like them, it the best I can do.

Here are some pictures of the hairstyle to compare with

China Glaze Review

Just a quick review on the China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Paint The Town Red and China Glaze No-Chip Top Coat.

So far I'm happy with these products although I must admit that I still prefer OPI simply because it has better staying power.

Here are 3 pictures of applying the products in layers

First Coat

Second Coat
Then topped off with China Glaze No-Chip Top Coat

China Glaze Paint the Town Red Pro's-
It dries quick
Not too thick
Is super shiny without a top coat

China Glaze Paint the Town Red Con's-
It starts chipping after 2 days
Its a bit translucent so two or more coats need to be applied
Its hard to get in Australia (I got them from Hair Mart which is a supply store that only sells to professionals and students in the beauty industry)

I give it a 6/10. I love the fact that it dries quick

China Glaze No-Chip Top Coat Pro's-
Makes nails shiny
Can be applied over the top of Konad stampings (I love it for this fact)
Is quick drying
Is easy to apply

China Glaze No-Chip Top Coat Con's-
It does prolong the nail from chipping a little but not enough I think

Over all I give this product an 8/10 simply because I can use it over stamped Konad nails without the stamp bleeding.

Good News, Bad News

I always think its best to get the bad news out of the way first, kind of like ripping the band-aid straight off or jumping into a freezing pool.
My camera is acting up and wont let me record. I thought it was my husband taking the hard disk out but its not the case. So I'll need to get that sorted out asap as I wont be doing anymore videos until its sorted. I tried using my iMAC built in camera like I use to but it turns out the mic isn't working (this is apparently a recurring thing to MAC computers LOL). I'll still be posting blog posts though =).

Good news I did manage to film my August favs on my photo camera but I only used it because I had promised to do it. I may be using this camera again to film, its blurry at first but it refocuses and the mic was covered by the tripod so I sound really weird. Other then that let me know if use like the quality of this camera better.

here is the video
