Been busy with the lack of posts recently, here’s a quick post to show you guys these amazing leggings. These have been in stock for awhile but I have yet to do a post on them. It’s got such a nice 80s – 90s dirty grunge vibe about them. Only a few pairs left, so a grab a pair while you can at LULUCHERIE.

Dark, gothicy shades, with tones of grey and deep wine red. These are the sort of colours and mood I’m feeling for this December. I’ve still yet to pick up my deep wine red lippie, and possibly a dark royal purple one too?

Stargazer Liquid Metal Foil Nails

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Some of you guys asked me in my previous posts where I got my “metal-looking” nails from, well here it is. The nail polish is Stargazer and can be easily found on Ebay, where I got it for no more than £5.

I’ve been looking everywhere for a liquid metal nail polish. It only requires 1 coat and is quite easily to apply. It does chip fairly easily but I’m not too fussed about that as I tend to change my nail colour frequently.

As far as I know, Barry M has recently released a similar polish and I will probably end up picking up the Barry M Gold version of this. What do you guys think of these polishes?

Some hair inspiration I’m feeling for this A/W. I’m not very good with doing hairstyle, but will definitely give these inspirations a go. Have you guys tried these styles?

Gareth Pugh for MAC

Being a fan of Gareth Pugh’s work, I was anticipating for his collection for MAC.

I  love the fierce looking eyes/lashes and the dark purple-black lip shade on the model. I’m still trying to find my perfect lip shade for Winter.

What do you guys think of the collection?

DIY: Newspaper Nails

IMG_0864

(…during the process of DIY newspaper nails – (without the top coat)- )

Been eager to try this out after seeing it on the Topshop blog. It’s ever so easy to do and looks great! My friends were pretty amazed that it wasn’t some kind of nail sticker.

To do this, you will need:

- Nail polish in a light shade (preferably in white)

- Clear Nail polish

- Rubbing alcohol (I’ve read that vodka works aswell, but I haven’t tried that personally)

- Small pieces of newspaper

- Small dish to pour some alcohol into

 

And just follow these steps..

1. Apply the base coat, and allow to dry.

2. Pour a little bit of rubbing alcohol in a pot or dish, and soak a small piece of newspaper in the alcohol.

3. Press the piece of newspaper on top of a nail, and gently press to allow the transfer of the print.

4. Peel back slowly.

5. Repeat this for each nail.

6. Apply a clear top coat.

And Voila! Have you guys tried this easy nail trend yet?

Have you ever worn mismatched shoes before? I found these somewhat creeper-like platforms, but not as gothic/grunge. They were perfect for me to wear with some socks and a sheer net maxi. So I ended up buying a pair in each colour.. (yes, now I have the remaining pair lying around now… not quite sure what I’m going to do with them!)
Anyways, I think it looks a hell lot more interesting wearing the studded platforms mismatched. Opinions?

Visionaire 61 : Lagy Gaga

Lady Gaga graces the cover of Visionaire. The combination of mermaid vs. Lady Gaga seems so perfect for me, as I’m a sucker for mermaids and any mythical creatures. Ever since my childhood days, I’ve been watching and re-watching Disney classics like The Little Mermaid, and later on to an older take of the classic story in Splash (starring Tom Hanks).

Gaga is drenched in oil as the thick sludge is smeared over her bare chest to waist. I love the contrasting colour in her hair and the minimal make-up to dramatize the whole look. I’m left staring at these images in awe.

The cover is photographed by the amazing Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. I love their work!
