Jipaban - Accessories, bags and shoes!

Super happy to shop at Jipaban because there are so many shops in a website! :D

(Top from candy stripper! WO HEN XI HUAN!!)

How can anyone not love studs! Haha I'm such a studs-lover I actually got myself two of this bracelet.

One mint and one black :D

Anyway, I was looking for neon bracelets but I couldn't find any nice ones.
So happy to find this skull and peace neon bracelet from Jipaban!

One is a bit more loose than the other because I took out the beads and fixed them back into a smaller bracelet. Missed out one bead for the peace one so it looks tighter lol.

More neon accessories! No more boring old black moustaches hahaha.

Some of the shoes from Jipaban!
This pair of Nicki Platform Boots are soooo pretty I cannot get my eyes off them. *_*

It gives me the height that I yearn for HAHAHA.

Anyway, that camera strap is also from Jipaban! Papier Rever :)

This pair of shoes IS DA BOMB. Wtf. It's not entirely flats because the base of the shoe is quite thick! It's MAD comfortable to walk in. O_O

 Dust Pink drawstring bag! It's the right size for me. :D

Go shop go shop now!

FOTD: Summers not quite over yet...

I've been on a real neutral kick lately, so after a bit of prompting from my lovely friend Jane i whacked out some of my gorgeous Inglot shades. To put it bluntly, we've had a real shit summer here in the UK, so mostly I've not been feeling very colourful in my makeup so having the chance to have a mess about with some brights was a nice change! I didn't have to leave the house today, as i probably wouldn't have been as comfortable with such a bright look but i really do love how this turned out! I just LOVE Inglot.

MUA - Eye Primer.
Mac - Phloof!, Omega.
Elf - Liquid Eyeliner.
Urban Decay - 24/7 Liner in Zero.
L'oreal - Volume Million Mascara.
Inglot - Matte 362, Pearl 441, Shine 39, AMC Shine 17.

Nyx - Slim Lip Pencil in Edge Pink.
Mac - Lustreglass in Wonderstruck.

Missha - Perfect BB Cream.
Maybelline - Stay Matte Powder
Nars - Laguna Bronzer.
Accessorize - Wowzer Blush.
Mac - Lightscapade

Looks a tad messier than i had hoped for in the second picture, and my hair was not being obedient that day, but overall I'm really happy with it! I even had a compliment from my Dad about it whose normal reaction to eye makeup is "it's too dark"... Happy times!

Have you been wearing brights lately?
What are your favourite shades?!

    To Glitter or Not to Glitter

    Most of us who follow various bloggers or who spend lots of time and money searching for that special polish shade know that glitter comes in countless shapes, sizes, colours and qualities.  Whereas some glitters look elegant worn alone, others really need a base shade to make them pop like they were intended to. 

    I think opinions are quite divided on whether to add that desired bling by adding a coat of glitter or whether to allow the polish to shine and impress on its own.  Personally, I have been fascinated by the Luxeffects by Essie worn on several different polishes - on all 10 fingers or as an accent on my ring finger.  Each time bling was added in the form of glitter I received rave reviews from my admirers.
    Today I would like to show you one of the Nailwear shades that will be featured in a fantastic kit on TSC tomorrow Aug. 31st.  So all you Canadian fans and friends - you might want to check this out at 12, 4 and 7 pm EST.  It will definitely be worth your while......
    Step 1:  Always coat your nails with a high quality clear base coat.  It protects your nails from the strong pigments contained in the polish (benefit of this -little or no staining) and it provides a good base on which you can then apply your polish.
    Step 2:  Seen here - "Peach Opal" by ASK Cosmetics.  As the name implies it has a peachy undertone and a frosty sheen to it like no other.  Very nice as a stand-alone day-time polish.
    Step 3:  After applying 2 - 3 coats of polish I always treat my cuticles with an application of TIPS Nail Conditioner.  When doing a manicure I always keep the polish well away from my cuticles as it dries them out.
    2 coats of "Peach Opal" on Clear Base Coat by ASK Cosmetics and TIPS Nail Conditioner as treatment for my cuticles while wearing polish.
    Joining the group now is Essie's Luxeffects - "A Cut Above" glitter to jazz up my manicure.  To be completely honest, I was somewhat nervous about combining these two shades.  Here is the result....
    It is quite visible in this photo how I stay clear of my cuticles.  This product by Essie is so easy to apply and create an even look - really a dream as far as glitter is concerned.

    A close-up of my thumb to show the glitter particles. 
    So, what you do prefer - polish alone or the special effects added to a manicure through a coat of glitter?
    Hope everyone is enjoying the day!  The skies are blue and the weather is simply gorgeous in my neck of the woods.  Til next time, Lisa M.

    Sorry but this is going to be a SUPER short post.

    Creating your own Nail Art Tools

    Nail art has taken the polish world by storm.  Who can resist with all the stunning lacquer shades available to us on the market nowadays?  I know I have tried my hand at some easy designs - the odd hit, but the odd miss too.  Up to now I have not invested in any nail art tools, but I have been rather creative and used things around the house.  One fellow blogger "Enigmatic Rambles" was so kind to give me a tip about using the end of a pin for dots.  Recently I saw an idea on Pinterest, which I had to test as well.

    Here is the product of my creativity yesterday:
    I started with a base colour entitled "Abalone Sand" by ASK Cosmetics - 3 coats seen here.
    For the first set of dots I used the rounded end of tis brush, the same one I use to remove any polish that is "outside the lines". 
    The second set of dots in grey were a bit out of control as I was doing this nail art with my left hand and I am usually right dominant.  Note to self:  do not drink so much coffee before attempting this.
    This was the idea I took from Pinterest - by simply sticking a pin in the eraser end of a pencil you have an inexpensive dotting tool.  How cool is that!
    This is the end product of my dotting adventure.  And here is a photo of the shades I chose:
    From left - right:  Abalone Sand by ASK Cosmetics, Spanish Moss by Revlon, Chinchilly by Essie and Colour Club (name unknown).
    All Nailwear by ASK Cosmetics is Big-3 free, Camphor free and vegan-friendly.

    For all you Canucks, don't forget to tune in to The Shopping Channel Aug. 31st @ 12pm, 4pm and 7pm for awesome deals featuring all the ASK Cosmetics products, in particular - Nailwear shades, Revival Nail Polish Remover, TIPS Nail Conditioner, TIPS for Toes as well as the Skin Conditioning Milk and haircare products too.
