MAC Studio Fix; Froggy NOTD

I didn't realize how long I have not updated. Too many things been going on in real life. Arguments, break up, regrets and such. Thankfully everything's finally stable again and I don't feel like jumping off Penang Bridge anytime soon.

Because my pay is so low, I'm consistently on a make up ban, it is really starting to get to me. There is so many things I would like to do; treating loved ones out for dinner, giving my parents more money every month, buying things that I like without breaking a sweat and all but that is just not possible with my current pay. It's depressing.

I work in a not-for-profit organization and thus my pay is what it is but when I broke down crying because I didn't have enough to eat middle of the month (my own fault tho, I went a little koo-koo and bought a few dresses after not buying for so long) I felt like I really needed to switch jobs a.s.a.p. I have an offer but fingers crossed.

To cheer me up, JH bought me the MAC Studio Fix that I have been eying since middle of last year. Whee! I am so so happy! Thank you dear!

The Reflects Pearl is super pretty in real life! So sparkly

Chris (Elyn's friend and the person I always buy from) even gave me a nice bag and some samples. The cleansing oil and two glitter from the Wonder Woman collection. I was over the moon!

I wanted the Studio Fix because I needed the coverage. I don't have flawless skin and lately I'm starting to break out again. I suspect it's because I was using my MUFE Camouflage concealer and ZA powder for a week. My skin isn't use to make up anymore after using BB cream for so long so I had to switch back to BB cream.

The powder is a nice touch after my BB cream and makes everything nice and matte.



JH even bought me the Canmake lower eyelash that I was looking at. Personally I wouldn't have gotten it despite how much I wanted it because it was just too pricy for me. Luckily there was a 15% off :D


Sparkly~

NOTD:



I ordered some 'blings' online a while ago and decided to play around with some. I did this on my ring finger and left the rest plain tho.

A couple of days ago, I saw a comment from Emvely who did a super cute Frog inspired nail art. Frog Nail for you? (Click on link to see the original version) That nail art inspired me so much that I wanted to give it a try.



I wanted a variety of other 'animals' on my nails besides the frog; A bunny, cat, hello kitty etc.
It turned out...messy. And horrible. And embarrassing. I asked JH if they looked like animals and he replied, ' They look like demons'.

I wasn't too sure if I ought to strangle him or what but after taking a picture of it, I cleaned everything off except the rabbit.



The second time around, at least the cat looks like a cat and not a "demon". It was less messier since I used JH's acrylic paints. I'm a convert. Never again will I use nail polish to do any nail arts. It's a total pain in the *toot*



Still not perfect but it was fun! Whee!

How lovely to see you blogging again! Hope you're doing well. Sounds like you had a bit of a rough time! Big Hugs to you!!

Oooh question! You wear contacts right? Circle lenses? If you wear very glittery eyeshadow doesn't it irritate your eyes? Whenever I wear really glittery eyeshadow I always manage to get fall out in my eye...not good! Maybe I should use a primer?

Love the nails! Especially the frog haha! So cute :D

Talk to you sooooon! Xoxoxox

Thank you for mentioning my blog on your post im very graceful~!

Next time when you do the frog or any animal nails make sure to do it with toothpick. Cut of the pointy thornpart and use the rounded side to creat a circle shape :]

T_T crying because I would never in my life would be able to hand draw a cat on nails. My hands are naturally
shaky, so have to stick with konad. LOL.

Anyway, both versions of the cat are cute! The first one look like naughty cat, the other one look like fluffy fat persian ready to be hug.
