I am on a green kick, I think it must be my favourite colour at the moment. Earlier this week, even though my work uniform is predominantly red, I wore lime green eyes and nails. It's how I get my kicks these days.

On my nails: Illamasqua Radium with Andrea Fullerton 'Gemstone Overcoat' on top. I use Essie Good to Go to help it dry faster. I'm halfway through my second bottle, I looooove it.

On my eyes: base was UDPP and a dab of Pixie Epoxy (hope they don't stop making this, I know they're struggling recently and it makes me very anxious).
Eyeshadows are Sugarpill Chromalust in Absinthe (lid) with UD Naked palette colours in Virgin (inner corner), Naked, Buck and Creep (blended in the crease).
Despite using my go-to black liner Illamasqua Precision Ink in Abyss, this day I chose to use my Revlon Grow Lucious mascara in brown/black or black/brown or some such (I know I need to throw this out soon, but I haven't used it all up.)
 My go to blush for work is currently either Mighty Aphrodite from MAC or Illamasqua Cream Blusher in Rude, so this is one of those two (probably the former, by the looks of it). Basically, any peachy colour.

While we're on the subject, I really would love to get Sleek Pan Tao but 1. I have three peachy blush colours now and I feel that's excessive and 2. It was out of stock when I picked up the Paraguaya iDivine palette from the same collection at Superdrug a couple of weeks back. (That was an exciting trip anyway because they didn't carry Sleek at my nearest Superdrug previously and I had to travel to a choice of two shopping centres or the next city... now it's so near I can practically smell it. Creepy! - ???)

  1. Wow, that mani is amazing! It looks... well, toxic, ha ha! Absinthe looks really pretty too.

    And oh, god, I know this is slightly melodramatic but if they stop making P.E I will cry!

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one Robyn haha! I have lots left but if I can't ever buy it again... whatever will I do? x
