Being from a very Scottish family, I think plaid is the norm to wear to any and all family events. We had my husband’s family’s annual xmas reunion this weekend so I wanted to dress up.(they’re Finn and a bit of Scottish)
I got some cool nail art wraps for xmas from avon. I wanted to try them out as it’s been a while since I first used any on myself.
I quite liked these, they are still tricky to put on yourself, I do them for clients all the time so I was a bit more frustrated with myself. They are more vinyl than just a plain sticker, so they had a better stretch to them.
I also received a bunch of the new avon line of their gel nail polish. I only used the gel top coat to seal in the nail wraps. I was actually pretty impressed.
I just thought “Oh they are just using the word gel as a buzz word.. it’ll just be high gloss”.
Nope. It actually works pretty good its like shellac without having to cure it. I had shellac that was growing out underneath and it gave me a fill. Avon coloured me impressed for once.
I wanted to try some tartan art in my makeup as well.
I broke up the regular thick liquid line I use for my cat eye wing tips into just the horizontal lines, as if I was doing a cross hatch drawing. I then used my straight Liner brush for the gold powder and red gel liner to cross into the black liquid liner.
I wanted to wear my beautiful corseted plaid skirt. I have a favourite winter sweater that I actually found at Value Village. its a shoulder cut black sweater that already had ornamental crystal snowflake buttons sewn onto it.
I also had bought these pair of shoes originally for my wedding when I was going to buy a black dress but that didn’t work out. But they look like gothic highland dancing shoes with dark red lace.
well I hope everyone had a great christmas/holiday/yule/haunakah
