I LOVE accessories. Cheap, expensive, fake, real, whatever! I love them all as long as I can match it with an outfit and I tend to wear a lot of dark or neutral colors so it allows me to be a bit bolder with my jewelry.
I found this wicked ring on Forever21.com for $6.50 and I had to have it. The only down side to this piece, besides that I feel so badass wearing it, is that the metal lacing catches on to soft fabrics like silks and knits. I gave my friend a hug on the dance floor and it got caught on her silk shirt. Oops :(
This pic was taken with my iPhone outside my apartment waiting for a cab for a night out with friends. I’m wearing the ring with my MAC Kid Orange. I just love how this shade has the perfect amount of orange so that it’s not a perfect red.
Sometimes all a girl needs is some glitter and everything seems to get way brighter and better.
I was visiting a girlfriend in LA and picked up a bottle of L.A. Girl Glitter Addict in Inspire and I couldn’t wait to try it out when I got home. By the way, don’t you just love good inexpensive polish? This bottle only cost me $3.50!
I used Sephora by OPI in Dark Room as the base, then laid on two thick layers of Inspire on top, but it still didn’t feel blingy enough so I added a pop of silver with Sephora by OPI Flurry Up!. When I finished, I kept staring at how shiny my fingers were, then I thought “shit, how am I going to remove all this glitter?”. I’m writing this post a week later so I can tell you that it took me about an entire episode of Friends to take these off my and my fingers were so dry from the remover the next day. Vaseline to the rescue.
**UPDATE** I can’t believe I didn’t think of this before! Several months later, I’m reading a post from Oooh, Shinies! and she shared the perfect tip to remove glitter polish, click here if you want to save some major time!
I found these 3D bows at the night market this summer and even though they’re very Valentine’s Day / Christmas-ish, I thought they’d be the perfect contrast to my recent MAC Kid Orange mani. I also had a wedding to attend and decided to wear my favorite black dress so I thought the red polish and white bows would give it the right amount of romantic pop. I was running late getting ready and there was too much dancing at the reception so I forgot to take a photo of the ensemble before one of the bows decided to start peeling off. Sad face.
But I did take a pic with my iPhone, which unfortunately made the bows look really flat. There’s actually a bit of dimension to them in person. I hope the rest stay on for at least a few more days.
