Migi Nail Art – Paint Splatter

migipaintsplatter

Hey guys! Here is my first shot at the Migi Nail Art pens. I honestly cannot even begin to tell you how AWESOME these are. I wanted to do something that was quick and easy but used as many colors as possible, so here you go! I used every color in the black set except for the peach.

Each set of nail art pens comes with a small booklet that has a practice page in the back. I’ve come up with a few things that I will definitely be letting you guys know about soon, so keep an eye out for those!

Calypso Minerals Swatches

EDIT January 2010

As you may know, Calypso Minerals has sadly become an untrusted company. This post is from September of 2009, where I completely encouraged ordering these shadows, as they really are amazing. I could have never possibly known what would happen to some of you guys, several of you out large sums of money. I have received more than one comment telling me how wrong and unfair it is to still support this company by leaving this post up, but I will not be taking it down as you can no longer buy the products anyway. I may recommend something, but it is based on my personal taste and experiences with something. It is up to you to make the decision to purchase something, and you are always buying at your own risk. Any comments regarding this will be deleted promptly.

The last I have heard, Jen is working on refunding people or sending their products to right the situation.

Hey guys! This is my very first package from Calypso Minerals, and I can not even begin to tell you how excited I was to try these. After watching vintageortacky open her package and seeing her first reaction, I knew these shadows were not going to disappoint. I placed my order a couple of weeks ago, and since Jen was so backed up she was kind enough to include some extras! To say I was floored when I started swatching these isn’t good enough..I can’t believe the quality at such a great price.

Beauty from the Earth Swatches

L-R : Copper Cauldron, Wizard’s Wand, Rant, Peacock, Karma, Grape and Blueberry
These were all swatched over my NYX jumbo pencil in Milk.

Hey guys! I just got a package from Beauty from the Earth, and I could NOT wait to swatch these! Let me start by saying that everything was packaged very nicely, the six pots were in a ziplock baggie and then wrapped in tissue paper, and then Blueberry was a sample baggie stapled to a business card.

For those of you who follow BFTECosmetics on Twitter, you’ll know that they had a contest to name their Fall 2009 collection not too long ago. They picked two of my names, so I won six colors! The two that were picked were Copper Cauldron and Wizard’s Wand, and I can’t even tell you guys how proud I am that they liked two of my names! Both of those colors are BEAUTIFUL, you guys really have to check out the fall collection when it comes out!

As for the shadows in general, they are very soft, pigmented and have the prettiest glow I’ve ever seen from mineral shadows without being a shimmer bomb. They’re super affordable, so if you guys haven’t tried them yet..I recommend them totally! Be sure to follow them on Twitter, you might end up naming something from their next collection!

Candy Land : Plumpy

plumpy1

Hey guys! This is a themed series I’ve been wanting to do for a while now and I finally got my butt in gear! First up is Plumpy, the furry green monster with a plum tree. For some odd reason MUFE #92 photographs as an almost royal blue color, but in real life it is a GORGEOUS vibrant purple. I hope you guys like this series as much as I’m going to!
