Inspired by a Green Dress
I guess I've always been a matchy-matchy kinda gal. I remember in high school, I was chastised by a friend for matching my socks to my shirt while wearing my Chuck Taylor sneakers - because no rebel would match their socks to their shirt, right? Well, this rebel does what she wants - and this dress called for some green and blue eyes and nails!
I was also feeling a little rebellious because I paired this look with Colour Pop Ultra Matte Lippie in Bumble, a rich and bright terracotta color. Colour Pop has really outdone themselves with these lippies. So pigmented, so long-lasting. At $6 each, everyone needs at least one.
I swatched the Makeup Geek Foiled shadows that I have a while back, so you can check them out here, if you like. I love how the yellow-green of Jester brings out the yellow in my dress. I darkened up the outer corner with Houdini, and used some of the Catrice metallics on the inner corner for some golden glow.
I'm obsessed with Z-Palettes, too. I really prefer picking up a palette instead of individual eyeshadows. (Colour Pop, I love you, but I'm looking at you!)
I used the dry-brush-grunge nailart technique to create this patchy/striped nailart. I was trying to evoke the pattern of the dress. What do you think?
It was also pretty easy, and something I could recreate on my right hand without too much trouble. I love that all the nails aren't exactly the same, but they're similar.
Bottle shot: White (mix of different whites), Zoya Pippa, Butter London Sozzled, and Sally Hansen Salon Dark Knight.
I think I picked up that Elephant necklace on Groupon. I love it!
Do I have a jungle vibe going? Maybe a Suburban Jungle vibe, more like?
