Halloween Nails, New Lenses and More.

My new lenses came this week. Princess MiMi Sesame Grey! I loved my MiMi Brown lenses so much I wanted to try another color and I wasn't sure if I wanted green or grey at first. I decided on grey but I still want to try green at some point too!
Comfort: 10/10
Design: 10/10
Enlargement: 10/10
Color: 10/10
Overall: 10/10
(I love these lenses!)
I dyed the tips of my extensions purple. (the short ones, obviously)
I've been meaning to do it for a while but I finally got around to it early in the week. I used Jerome Russell Punky Colour again because I really loved how the Flamingo Pink worked on my hair so I used the color Purple this time. I knew it would come out dark, so I diluted it just as I had with the pink. At first I thought they came out too light though, they almost looked pink and I didn't want that. So I used a less diluted mix and gave them another round of purple and was much more pleased with the color. I also had to condition them very well because bleaching the tips fried them (as you can see in the before picture) I think the transition into purple looks much nicer conditioned and curled.
My real hair is only a little shorter than these extensions now. I need it cut badly though.

As I said in my last post I had planned on making Halloween nails.
This is the first set I've done for Halloween. The middle fingernail is inspired by Kyary's nails. 
 I tried cutting the horns into the nails at first but that just wasn't working. My monster face looks more like Venom with horns's the teeth XD
And guess what? They glow in the dark!:D Crappy quality, I know, but it was in the dark.
I bought some liquid latex for Halloween and did a trial run on my hand for testing burn scar makeup. It worked well but my red greasepaint must've gone bad or something because it cast a very orange hue over the burn that really annoyed me >:| I'll have to use my greasepaint sticks instead I guess.

Meet my twin sister!

Haha okay so I don't really have a twin sister (as if you couldn't tell XD) but I always wanted one so I made this picture in paint/Gimp since I'm trying to get better at the picture editing crap because I really need a new banner. 
Anyway, it was my real sisters birthday the other day and I made her some Kiss nails. Mostly because I was afraid her present wouldn't arrive on time. I bought her a top from her wishlist so she probably liked that more. I had to make these in a hurry because I finally got tracking on her gift the day before and it wasn't scheduled to arrive until the day after :( BUT it did come at about 8 that night! I'm so glad she got her gift on time but that also means I didn't really have to rush the nails.

I had teased up curls...seemed like a good idea at the time. These curls are doing something weird around my face though.
I also had on some pre-Halloween nails on. I have better ones planned for actual "Halloween nails".
I had to take them off that night though because the skulls snag on everything. I had tights on so you can probably imagine what a nightmare that was XD

Here's a derpish faced outfit pic. I was talking to a friend on Tumblr and she asked why I never do outfit rundowns, and really have no reason not to...laziness I guess? So here's one.

Studded Batman shirt.

I finished adding studs to my Batman shirt. I'd been procrastinating doing this for a while because studding by hand is so tedious and boring but I finally finished it up recently.
I think the pattern came out pretty decent considering...well I didn't really have a pattern I just kind of attached them where and and in what order I thought would look best.

The shirt is kind of old now but I've wanted to add studs to this since I saw this amazing picture on Tumblr a long time ago and thought "I'd love for my batman shirt to look like that!". 
I have no idea who the original picture belongs to :( But it was the source of inspiration in this studding so I thought it necessary to include it. 

I did my makeup a darker than usual. The pictures came out darker than normal too because it was a weird time of day where everything looked shadowy. 
Trying to find light at the window and failing miserably.
Made me look tan though so that's cool lol
I also cut up the inspiration for that, it was just random lol. Apparently I think plain T-shirts are too boring. It's still kinda baggy around the waist but I like a little wiggle room XD Sorry I still haven't figured out how to pose for outfit pictures yet :| My apologies.

Sweet Popteen Inspired Makeup

This time around, this look is not inspired by a particular model but just the overall sweet and innocent vibe models like Kummiki, Okarie and Rui Kotobuki are commonly seen sporting. So I wanted to put together a look that would be at home among the lovely ladies that model for Popteen.
This is a step up from the "natural" gyaru makeup I did last time. Whereas that was the bare minimum (more akin to what you'd find in something like Vivi magazine) this is the amp'd up version of a sweet look.
The lashes are more pronounced and elaborate, the cheeks and lips are brighter and the contouring, while still light, is heavier than before and more precise. As always work on that deer in the headlights expression XD
Popteen beauties Kumikki,Okarie, Rui Kotobuki and Natsuko Matsumoto.

Sorry I totally failed at showing the eyeliner step but I do normally hold the skin by the eye taut to apply the liner. But since I always do my left eye for the video (it seems to get better light) and I am left handed doing this always seems to get in the way. So for the sake of the video I never pull the skin straight and I must've just forgotten and done it anyway >.< .

Water Marble Nail Fail, Serina Makeup and My New Laptop.

I tried my hand at nail marbling and it didn't turn out great XD I wanted each nail to be different shades of the same color. Yellow was the hardest to get to marble but the oranges turned out the worst, the polish would NOT spread! I like the way the blue and pink turned out though. I used KleanColor polish and it just sucks at dispersing on the water right. I had to help spread the color with a toothpick for all but the blue and pink polishes for some reason. So I put a glitter polish over them to distract from some of the crumy-ness

I also did Serina inspired makeup because I feel like every gal wants to try this out at one point or another. I didn't do a video on it or anything since I had no idea how this would turn out or look on me. 
Because every gal wants to try Serina's makeup XD
I used these pictures as a reference, since there's also her older blue shadow, gold glitter liner and loooong bottom lashes look that people are also familiar with. I prefer this look on her though.
I don't really think it suits me but it was fun.

I've been out of commission for a while too since a spilled soda on my old computer and had to get a new one. My new computer is so pretty though! It's an HP Dandelion Breeze :D

I usually only buy the Acer mini laptop but now I have a regular sized laptop...and some of my pictures look so grainy on full sized laptops D: I never realized that because I was sizing them according to my mini laptop! Aww man! XD
Well here's one last (hopefully) appropriately sized picture.
