Urban Decay: Pulp Fiction Collection- Be Cool Hunny Bunny.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the cult classic, Pulp Fiction. Urban Decay will be launching a Pulp Fiction collection to commemorate such an event. The collection is based off of the character of Mrs. Mia Wallace, played by Uma Thurman. 

This collection is limited edition and is expected to not last for very long. So if you like what you see be sure to buy it while you can.

This collection is bold & sassy, filled with lots of deep Reds.
I also like that this collection is relatively small with only five essential items. 



Below you will find a break down of each product including pictures & pricing...

Nails... Blue-Ming Leopard Print

As much as I loved my neon Blue nails I can never stick with a basic manicure for long. So to switch it up I add a leopard print pattern.



To create this design I used Color Club's Blue Ming as my base coat. Then using Sally Hansen 3D polish in Laser I created the coloured spots. Next I used Sally Hansen's I love nail art pen to add the black around the coloured spots and in random areas on the nail. I then finished the design off with a quick drying topcoat.



This is one of those nail designs anyone can do. It may take a bit of practice but can be mastered in little time. Hope this inspires you to try something bold & new with your nails.

Peace & Luv

Nails... Color Club's Blue-Ming

Yesterday I got myself a fresh set of acrylic nails, painted in a bright Blue called Blue-Ming.

Blue-Ming was created by Color Club. It was featured in their Blossoming Collection from Spring 2012. 

 

This shade of Blue is a perfect color for any summer day.

Stay tuned for the decked out version of these nails... Leopard Print. Blog to come soon!

Today's Look... Sparkling Green

The look was inspired by another gorgeous eye I saw stumbling around the internet. It was filled with green shades and gold glitter. I wanted to do something super fun and different from what I had been wearing recently, so I decided it was time to bust out some sparkles and pair it with a bold red lip. (The red lipstick and lipglass I am wearing are from the MAC Maleficent collection.)

MAC Maleficent Collection Review

Disney's most iconic villain, brought to life in this summer's epic new film, inspires a limited-edition colour collection in specially designed packaging to delight the most demanding of dark sorceresses. Intensely admired for her evil elegance, despite her efforts to instill fear in the hearts of generations, this icon casts a spell of absolute adoration with sensuous shades so wickedly gorgeous, who needs beauty sleep? -maccosmetics.com

A little over a week ago I was happy to receive my Maleficent collection package from MAC. I was super excited about this particular collection so of course I ordered it the morning it launched online.


   

This collection was one of the many MAC collections that didn't sell out as a whole. A couple items did which are listed below. A lot of the items included were either already available in some form or variation and were very stylized to the particular look Angelina had worn through out the movie, making it a pretty simple (yet elegant) collection. It is still available online or in select stores.

Nails... Miso Sparkly

Recently I had my nails filled. I wanted to get my nails painted a shade I didn't usually go with, so I chose OPI's Miso Happy With This Color. After a few days I needed to mix it up a bit and of course add some sparkles.

Nails... OPI's Miso Happy With This Color

Today I got myself a fresh manicure painted in OPI's Miso Happy With This Color. 

This shade is a very pale pink, almost a nude. I love this color. I think it's very pretty and girly but so sexy at the same time.

This polish was apart of OPI's Japan Collection in 2005.

Unfortunately is an older black label OPI polish so a lot has changed with the formula since it was made. When this polish was applied, it seemed to apply smoothly. However when it started to dry I noticed that it would begin to streak or clump up in some areas. 

All seemed to be smoothed over with a top coat. However it did take the polish a good amount of extra time to dry while using a fan, UV light & finishing fast dry spray. 

 

This polish is a rare polish to find. The best place to find it would probably be online. 
Pricing ranges from $8-$12 CA.
