Killer heels

18 Aug

Much has been written about the relationship between girls and their shoes. And I must confess. I do have an unexplained love for what I can only describe as stripper heels burlesque. Outrageous, Red, Deliciously Extravagant, Glitter, Sky High and all but sensible.

I recently discovered some great brands in this department. So here’s just a small portion of my wishlist:

 

Leg Avenue

 

Ellie Shoes

 

Tuk

 

Pleaser Shoes

 

Iron Fist

 

The saddest thing? I do not own any of these… yet.

Divalicious nails

7 Aug

Time to put the diva to the test! I’m still not sure what I should call this colour, red, purple, pink, berry? It’s dark and mysterious, luscious, shimmery, sophisticated and all kinds of sexy.

One coat does not give a very even or covering result. Depending on the light being forgiving or not, IF aplied with a lot of care, one coat could work. Clearly, not for me.

 

Two coats of polish makes the lucious colour stand out and covers nearly perfect. But the light I had in this picture still shows some bumps and bruises.

 

So I did what I never do, apply a third coat. And what do I get?  Perfection.  Nothing less, except for the mani, but that’s hardly OPI’s fault.

Of course the storemanager told me to always apply a base- and topcoat, which I clearly didn’t. Maybe that’s why this time three’s a charm. I love this colour, but I’m not sure how much I’ll use it. Unless I learn to get it perfect in 2 coats. So, off to practice!

 

One day later: It seems to be impossible for me to stop staring at my nails. I just HAVE to check out the colour whenever I’m in an other room. LOVE it. That’s definitely worth applying up to 3 coats of polish. What was I thinking 🙂

*WOOTwoot* I got my very first O.P.I. nailpolish!  Because of a Facebook action, I paid only half the usual price, so I got it for only €6,98. After MUCH considering and debate, I choose Diva of Geneva from the O.P.I. Swiss collection. Because who doesn’t want to be the Diva, right?  I also love the colour, “a vibrant pink-red that’s anything but neutral”. Want a product review? Coming soon!
