Last year I shared with you all plenty of fun and creative nail art designs, perfect for the festive season. This year I have decided to continue with this, although I won’t be producing as many designs as last year and this year’s Christmas nails were not created by my hand either. I went to my nail technician with some Christmassy ideas, and this is what we came up with…
With Christmas around the corner I have been itching to try out some festive make up looks and I was quickly inspired by Vegas.com to create something bold and sparkly. In today’s post I am going to be transitioning a neutral makeup look from day to night, so that no matter the time of day, or what you’re doing, you can be Vegas ready with a festive spin, so whether your Christmas parties are in Vegas or not, hopefully it’s a makeup look we can all wear.
I love making lists, so I thought a good way to start off blogmas this year would be with a Christmas Wishlist! I made one last year and a few of the items I luckily and gratefully received, but it’s been a whole year which means there have been a lot of new product releases as well as discoveries of older items which I am lusting over, so an entirely new list is necessary.
In last year’s wishlist I began being really specific and as I got further into my list it became more vague, so I will hopefully do better this year…
I have been equally bad at staying on top of both my favourites and my empties these past few months, but I have so many wonderful things to share with you guys that despite the fact I have so many products building up, I am still determined to share everything with you all.
Due to the fact that empties are simply empty products I know I will no longer have any use for, I decided to begin getting on top of these kinds of posts by filming an empties video because not only will it free up physical space in my bedroom, but in video format I will be able to get through each of the products so much more quickly and concisely whilst still being informative.
I love Halloween, but I cannot promote my Halloween blog posts all year round and there isn’t enough time around Halloween to post all the Halloween blog posts that I want to. As a result of this, I thought it would be nice to share some previous Halloween blog posts I have written which you may have missed.
Also, I would love it if you would leave in the comments links to your favourite Halloween blog posts on your own blog or someone else’s for me to have a little read!
Halloween is less than a week away!
Obviously, I have to have Halloween themed nails over Halloween, so yesterday I went to the salon and had them done especially. I have done some nail designs for Halloween using regular nail polish, but I wanted gel overlays for actually over Halloween so that I wouldn’t have to worry about them and they would last. It would also mean that I could have some Halloween designs that I would not be able to replicate myself.
I love Halloween and while I’m not a big fan of dressing up and costumes, I do love applying makeup. As a result, over the weekend I did some experimenting with makeup to create this Halloween inspired look.
When I think of Halloween, several shocking colours come to mind including bright oranges and deep, dark purples, so those are the colours I focused on incorporating into this look. I had recently bought an orange liquid eyeliner with Halloween in mind and I have an abundance of purple toned lipsticks, so it was no mystery what way round the orange and purple would go…
I’m still suffering with some reading struggles at the moment, so I don’t have a book review to post today unfortunately. I just don’t feel like I have enough time to read lately and it sucks. Nevertheless, it’s blogtober, so I couldn’t leave you guys without some kind of blog post. As a result, today I am going to do a life and blog update kind of post because I don’t do those particularly often.
When I wrote my Lipstick Love post last week dedicated to autumnal lip shades, I realised that there are so many I adore that I would have to create another Lipstick Love post. This time I am focusing on Halloween and I’ve included shades that are on the darker end of the spectrum which would be ideal for both Halloween and autumn in general, as well as some more brighter and unusual shades which I would strictly use for Halloween.
Last year for Halloween I posted a few nail designs on my blog, so this year I decided to do the same again, but obviously with different designs. Also, all the designs for this year are in black and white, unlike the slightly colourful mixture of last year’s, so no dripping blood this year, or Frankenstein’s, but hopefully you enjoy these designs nonetheless.
A couple of the designs in this post are actually inspired by some of my favourite Halloween movies and if you’d like to hear more about what my favourite Halloween movies are you can click here. In the meantime, let’s get into the nails!
My first design probably doesn’t stand out straightaway as being Halloween themed, so I suppose it’s a more discreet option for those of you who don’t want to go too wild for the occasion. So, these are my Beetlejuice nails, inspired by the film:
