Hi, everyone! Today I have for you my NOTD and FOTD from yesterday, when it was Christmas. For nails I decided not to do a classic red (like I wore it last year), but to do a white and gold combination. I used Essie Blanc and Essence Joy to the World topper.
I love this combination and I definitely need to wear white polish on my nails more often. Here are 2 photos with our Christmas tree behind.
I got Essie Blanc with a 50 % coupon. I was thinking for some time, if I should get it or not. I use white polish for a nail art a lot and I though Essie is just to expensive to use it for nail art and finish it in few months, so I decided I'll get it, but wear it only as my full manicure and for nail art designs I'll use tempera painting or cheaper white polish.
Essie Blanc is a perfect white creamy polish (it's not like She, which has more watery formula), applys a bit streaky, but with second or third coat (it depens, how thin coats you use), you can correct mistakes and make it look perfect. I used 3 thin coats here.
As I mentioned in yesterday's post, that look was an inspiration for my Christmas look. I didn't do it so dark, but I did it very sparkly. I did my lips red, but only for photos, because I used lipgloss and it went off, when I ate soup, so I just applied balsam on my lips after that.
I applied L'Oreal Bronze Goddess over a whole lid and then I used Paper Bag from Sleek Ultra Matts V2 palette in crease. Then I applied Romance in Rome from Sleek Vintage Romance palette in outer V and blend it in crease. Because I felt, like it isn't dark enough, I used Noir from Sleek Ultra Matts V2 palette and applied it over Romance in Rome. Under my eyes I used Orbit from Sleek Ultra Matts V2 palette and then blend it with Noir from same palette. In inner corner I applied Dune from Sleek Ultra Matts V2 palette and in the end I used She glittery liner and applied it all over the lid, in inner corner and on 1/3 of my lower lashline. As a highlighter under my brow I used Alverde Vanille.
