KB Shimmer Berry Christmas + bonus makeup/hair

Hello again, I have another Christmas-y polish for ya, again from KB Shimmer. I wore this one to the boyfriend's company Christmas party. Needless to say we were the best looking couple there ;)

This is Berry Christmas, featuring one of my favorite color combos: red and purple. There's a lot going on here and I love it! Obviously this polish can transcend Christmas time and be used any time of the year. The first two pictures are in direct sunlight, the third indirect sunlight, and the fourth in the shade.

Here are two pictures of my makeup from that night. Pretty simple eyes (with falsies! WHOA) to go with the red lip. I also had just redone my hair with the Wild Orchid from Pravana on top of what I had before which was a mixture of Violet and Wild Orchid, so now it looks more pink but still purple, if that makes sense. I didn't do the roots at all because I'm lazy, I just put the color on top and that's it. I received a TON of compliments on my hair and I was by no means the only person at the party with colorful hair. Which brings me a pet peeve of mine... when girls DO NOT fill in their brows AT ALL. I don't get it... why wouldn't you make it look like you have eyebrows?! You look like an alien without them... and I know they're there, I can see tiny little hairs where your eyebrows should be... make an effort!!!!!! Ugh.

I think those are all the Christmas polishes I wore, I'm really lazy when it comes to nail art or anything of the sort so I usually just slap on some glitter and that's the extent of what I can do most of the time.

Thanks for looking!

KB Shimmer All Decked Out

Hey again! So, you know the drill... I'm sorry for being away for so long again. The thing is, I get kinda depressed time and again, and honestly you're the only person I tell dear blog! The boyfriend doesn't even know how sad and useless I feel sometimes. Mehhhh.... so I guess I should be more faithful to you, dear blog, since you are always here to distract me. One reason I'm depressed and a good reason why I haven't been blogging is because I'm still jobless and I don't have monies so A) I feel useless and B) I don't have monies to buy pretty nail polish. I know, I know... #firstworldproblems. Anyways, here's a nice Christmas polish to cheer us up! From the always wonderful KB Shimmer, All Decked Out.

Ooooooh I love you Christmas tree on my nails. I wore this for our Ugly Christmas Sweater party. I layered it on top of China Glaze Holly-Day. I know it probably would have become opaque with enough coats but A) I want to save up as much polish as I can and B) I kind of don't like it when the glitter looks like it's drowning under all the multiple layers. Layering over something already opaque saves me the trouble.

Behold the ugliness! I really love this picture, we totally match and weren't even trying to, the boyfriend just happened to find this sweater at Goodwill this year, while I found mine at a different Goodwill last year. We're adorable, I know.

SO adorable, you need another picture! YEAH!

Ahh yes... so there you go. I know I say this every time, but I will try to blog more often. :)

Thanks for looking!
