Strolling through CVS, where I saw the Essence of Beauty Premium Blending Brush, I also checked out the Spoiled polishes to see if anything was new. Trust Fund Baby caught my eye. It's not a new polish, but one of Spoiled's hits.
Holy crap! Trust Fund Baby over black is Everything That Glitters on crack! ETG has smaller, more dense turquoise, pink and gold glitters in a black base and $17.50. TFB has larger more sparse glitters in a clear base and $1.99 at the drugstore.
Do you have either?? What are your thoughts?

I used a few coats of Nubar's Violet Sparkle and accented each nail with Spoiled's Jewelry Heist.

First let me show you my favorite purple, sparkly polish right now.... Milani Purple Gleam. PG is the jewel purple tone from the one coat glitter formula of polishes. It took a bit more than one coat to get an even application, but it's ok. (This design was based with OPI's Midnight in Moscow.) The dense glitter makes me happy when the sun or candle/moonlight hits my nails! I'm always on the hunt for an awesome purple glitter and I've found a few... I've been meaning to do a post on that very subject! This particular glitter brightened my day since Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia didn't strike my fancy much back when I tried it. It was very murky as the glitters were swamped in the black base. Instead of having ruby slippers to click, I feel like I have amethyst tips to ... idk, stare at!
Next, I have an FOTD I did when I was going out that I liked alot. Wish I had recorded a tutorial video to go along with it. By the way, how are you guys liking the youtube channel? Are the vids helpful? Enhance the blog? Let me know! Anyhoo... I was excited about going out because it was part of my plan to 'See and be seen'. You can't meet people and have fun if you don't go out, right? Meh...
(Remember my Nneka Saran purse I got a while back? It's my first time wearing it ...0_o)
October Favorites Vid. My other favorite product that I should mention is my L.A. Splash glitter liner in Gold. Love it! Some times you need a little sparkle to set off a look and the glitter liner was to the rescue! I use it in my inner corner, bottom lash line and on my lips! Chunky glitter .... I'm all over it! Fragrance: Gucci Guilty.. it was the black and gold packaging! LOL Nice fragrance, overall.
=( I will start doing my foundation first, lol
Here's a similar outfit to the one I wore that night:
Rachel Gilbert mini cocktail dress, $640
Emilio Pucci blazer, $915
Promiscuous pantyhose tight, $32
Supertrash platform booties, €250
Citrine By The Stones gold citrine ring, €77
ASOS metal jewelry, $18
Givenchy enamel earrings, $45
Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Trio, $40
Now I'm all excited and want to Polyvore some New Year's outfits!!

Check out my pics! I really liked this FOTD.. so my style! Sorry to those of you that already saw these on FB.
Also, this was a day that I left my regular, old faithfuls in my makeup bag at work. Armed with just my personal brush set, mascara and liquid liner, I had to rely on my kit. *groans*
Revlon ColorStay in Rich Tan mixed with a bit of Face Atelier's Zero +
MAC Studio Scuplt in NC40 under my eyes as concealer and highlight
Ben Nye loose powder in Fair to set concealer, topaz to set face and Ebony (?) to contour
L'Oreal Hip Paint in Witty? to base
A bit of NYX Milk shadow stick on my lid
MAC Gesso in inner corners
MAC Bisque on lid
MAC Texture and Swiss Chocolate in my crease
MAC Carbon in the outer v
Revlon liquid liner
Milani Color Brillance Pencil in Aqua on bottom lid
Ben Nye Sparklers in the outer v
Ardell Wispies lashes
MAC Zoomlash mascara
MAC brow pencils in Strut and Lingering
Boy Girl brow set
Victoria Secret concealer to sculpt/highlight underneath the brow
MAC Breezy blush
(before I ate them off)
MAC 2N lipglass
MAC Playing Koi lipstick on top
MAC Cremola lip pencil
Yes! I was still able to make do without my old faithfuls!

The no chip, eternal shine properties of this acrylic glitter was very enticing. (Women love this so much they get it on their toes. -__- Uh, no acrylic on my toes...) Knock on wood, I've never had a broken nail with this type of acrylic. Remember I've had this before. Twice actually.
All in all, I like it. Next go round, I'll be back to my regular polishes, I think hehe. I have way too many to not wear. Thinking of Valentine's Day nails...

Do you have this? Any of the glitter liners? What do you think of them?

Here's blurred swatch of the Sally's Lavish Lavendar glitter.
Now, on to the look:
Ok, so this definitely wasn't a Pixiewoo or Face from Aziajs, but it was fun working with the glitter, lashes and Lavendar Whip!

Of course my fave nail Flickr account had a picture of the polish. Thanks Lextard! Check out these other awesome shots of Pot Of Gold from Steph at Steph's Closet and Pretty and Fabulous. Will this hold me over?

I could use China Glaze's For Audrey in the Winter

I wanted Lancome's new mascara with glitter, but it didn't prove to be as fascinating as trying Ardell's falsies with built in glitter! Save quite a few dollars and get REAL sparkle!
Then I found this...
One large set.
One smaller set.. both $4.99? I guess so!
Finally, I get to see Ellen Degeneres putting in work for CoverGirl! I know I don't need the moisture that this product offers, but I'm so curious! Tried this?
Let me know if you seen any of this? Tried it?

Thanks for making me a winner! Thanks HB! I won a MAC gift card and went Heatherette hauling (for some more stuff! lol)
***CAUTION! WARNING! If you are over, nauseated, tired, bored or all of the above with MAC's Heatherette collection, don't go any further!***
I picked up: trio 1 and the good girl lashes (I thought I was a bad girl, but I love the glitter reflects in the lashes.) I bought some staples like Woodwinked, Dollymix and Pink bronze pigment. However, the pink pearl pigment and 3d glitter are calling me back! (Got gold reflects glitter and some lippies already.) I swear I have a dupe for pink pearl pigment, but it's a powder and a bit more chalkier than going on smooth and shimmery. They were out of the liners (the Blue Pop one was on my list!)
I have not done an FOTD yet, though I had ideas. I haven't done one yet because I'm so dang busy looking at other blogs and youtube vids =( So here's what I found... some hotness! I love sgtigress, her looks and personality. I'm not quite the advocate of females calling each other bitches... but you gotta take the good with some bad. Lucky for us she did looks for both trios. Friggin A! I might have to go back for trio 2!Trio 1
She shares my love of glitter (worn the good way, adding definition to her look.. did you see the glitter in my holiday fotd above?), paint pots, rhinestones, drama and she uses the mysterious 223 brush (that I bashed for a while)! I might have to get that too. Instead of doing nothing (like we said in our brush discussion hahaha), it may just blend enough, but leaves enough for definition in a look!
Hope you enjoyed and I hope to get to my posts up; the ones where I actually have to do more work like taking pics of stuff and uploading on the dreaded blogger.. womp womp.. until next time babes!
