Vampy Fall Leaf Mani

 This is my current mani; I used vampy purples for the base and fun metallic accents in fall colors of red, gold, green, and bronze. I used striping tape on the accent nail to look like a leaf. I love how it turned out :)

 Products:
Wet N' Wild base coat
-Wet N' Wild Mega Last polish in Disturbia (deep almost black purple cream)
-Spoiled polish in Vamp 'n' Vinyl (shimmery plum purple jelly)
-Fresh Paint polish in Sugar Crush (rainbow flaky on all but accent nail)
 -Color Club polish in Wild and Willing (orange/gold/red/green shimmer on accent nail)
 -nail striping tape (used on accent nail for "leaf")
-NYC In a New York Minute quick dry top coat
-Color Club mattifying top coat

This mani was already around 4 days old when I took these pics. I love how it looks with the matte top coat which dulls down the shine so you can really see the metallic flakies and the different tones in Wild and Willing. 
I just got Vamp 'n' Vinyl recently and wanted to use it because it's really pretty; the accents cover up the shimmer a bit but you can see the purpley color in the first pic. All together, I love this combo!

Thanks for reading!♥

DarlingGirl EotD: Taystee Girl


 This is an eye of the day from last month which I never got around to posting. I used mainly Darling Girl Cosmetics; please check below for products and details, and don't forget the pics are clickable. ;)

Eyes:
-Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper*
-Milani Shadow Eyez eyeshadow pencil in Almond Cream all over lids as base
Darling Girl shadows in:
-Taystee Girl* on lid
-Hidden Garden to blend out all edges
-Adoration on browbone and inner corner
 -Slocked* on tearduct/browbone for extra highlight
-theBalm Meet Matte palette, Matt Gallagher in crease 
 -Wet N' Wild Creme Liner in Black
-Prestige My Blackest Lashes mascara

I can't remember if I used glitter glue on my lids or not.. but even if I didn't, the shift is still quite visible. Some angles the shadow looks like a lilac/periwinkle, but move slightly and it looks pink. So pretty :)

I have a friend who was a tomboy growing up but wants to wear makeup for special occasions and such, so she asked me to take her makeup shopping and recommend some products. I wore this look makeup shopping with her and my 2 sisters, and then I gave her a makeup crash course. If you're curious what products I had her buy, Urban Decay's Naked Basics palette was on the list, as well as a Wet N' Wild blush (Heather Silk), Maybelline Color Tattoo (Soft Brown I think it's called, from their Leather collection), and a sample size of Laura Gellar's mascara from Ulta which I've tried and is quite nice. We also got her a bunch of e.l.f brushes and a Real Techniques brush, the pink retractable kabuki one. Plus a ton of other stuff haha ;) It was a fun day!

Bonus pic!
