|Orly Bonder, 2 coats OPI Senorita Rose-alita, Seche Vite|
Hi all, today I finally bring you a picture of my NOTW lol. It’s probably the simplest one I’ve done in quite a long time. So… originally I really wanted to wear P&J 02, but unfortunately that one is quite sheer and took 5-6 coats to get rid of my visible nail line (VNL – you know, the white part of the nail) and just refused to dry. I think it’s meant to be worn sheer (it really is so beautiful) so I’ll just have to find a nice opaque neutral to wear it over. So instead, I decided to do something nice and easy out of my untrieds and picked OPI’s Senorita Rose-alita which I received in swap a few weeks ago. It’s a lovely medium rose pink with gorgeous gold shimmer. I like it so much in fact, that I’m wearing it on my toes right now too. :D

And I wasn’t going to post this today (I wasn’t even planning on doing a FOTD today since I haven’t left the apartment LOL) but I just loved it so much I decided to anyway. Here is my second MAC Spiced Chocolate FOTD. I found Temptalia‘s Autumn Delights look using the Spiced Chocolate Quad yesterday when I was looking up release info for the Cult of Cherry Collection and liked it so much I just had to try it out myself. My compliments to Christine, because as you guys know, I rarely ever, ever like a look enough to copy it. In fact, this is the second time I’ve ever done it in my little over a year of wearing eye makeup.
I tweaked her look just a tad by using UD Half Baked along the tearduct and on top of where she used Nanogold on the lid since I love gold and because Nanogold just blends like crap. So, that would be UD Baked on the inner 1/3 of the lid, Brash on the outer 2/3, and Sweet Chestnut in the crease and outer lower lashline. I also added a bit of Spiced Chocolate in the outer corner and on top of Sweet Chestnut on the lower lashline to deepen the look a little. My eyes aren’t as deep set as Christine‘s so I really need the extra definition.
On my cheeks I’m wearing LM Nectar and Orange Blossom blushes, and on my lips I’m wearing LM Baked Earth stickgloss. I actually tried out Rosewater and Poppy first, but they were too pink and too red respectively. Baked Earth is just right though.
I think this might just be my favorite FOTD ever! At least I can’t think of one I like better than this one at the moment. I’m probably going to wear it again tomorrow when I’m actually going to class LOL. What about you guys, do you have a favorite FOTD of your own?
