Game of Thrones makeup series- House Martell

If you follow GoT at all so far this season,
you know that House Martell of Dorne is becoming increasingly bigger players.
(if you've read the books, then you REALLY know what's going on!)
In honor of that,
I wanted to use House Martell as the inspiration for my next installment
in my GoT makeup series!

Here's their sigil:

Based on their colors,
I created the following look!

I used:
Too Faced's Shadow Insurance
Sugarpill's 'Love+' & Lime Crime's 'Siren'- crease
Sugarpill's 'Flamepoint'- highlight of crease
Lime Crime 'Circus Girl'- inner corner
BFTE 'Tangerine' & 'Wacky'- middle and outer lid
Covergirl Line Exact liquid eyeliner
Covergirl mascara

I freaking love these fiery combos together!
I feel like i've used a lot of reds, golds, and oranges in this series,
but there are prevalent within the GoT world!

I actually wore this look out in public. Twice.
I love it.

Easter polishes!

Today is the day the Lord has made :)
I will rejoice and be glad in it!

Praise God for such a wonderful day today.
Also, I have some exciting and adorable Easter polishes for you!
Both from Pop Culture Cosmetics!

This is 'Bunny Trail' over Essie's 'To bUy or Not to Buy'

Secondly, 'Easter Dress' over Sinful Colors' !


Pop Culture Cosmetics- 'Happy Daisy'

My second PCC polish is this happy, festive top coat.
Here's 2 coats of 'Happy Daisy' over 
2 coats of Sinful Colors' 'Unicorn'.

'Happy Daisy' is a clear top coat filled with all sizes of yellow
and white hexes. There are a couple white daisy glitters in there,
but their super hard to get to, even with a toothpick :/

Despite that, this is such a happy, lighthearted mani that I don't even care
if the daisies come out or not-
the combo is still adorable!

What do you think?


Pop Culture Cosmetics 'Smart & Sassy'

I haven't had a Pop Culture Cosmetics polish in awhile,
but when I saw their new Spring/Easter polishes-
I had to have some.

Here's the first of several,
'Smart & Sassy' over Sinful Colors' 'Cotton Candy'

'Smart & Sassy' is a light pink jelly filled with large blue stars,
Large blue, neon yellow, and pink hexes, small & square iridescent glitter,
and yellow, blue, & pink micro-glitter.

I was quite pleased with this polish?
It's super adorable and great for Spring :)


Revlon Matte Balm Stain- 'Audacious'

Sorry it's been almost/over a week since I posted last.
I've had so much going on with job fairs, wedding planning,
and now moving houses!

ya'll know I'm in love with Revlon's Matte Balm Stains,
(see a full review of them here)
and now that it's Spring/close to Summer,
I was ready to pick up some brighter colors :)

Here's 'Audacious'!

'Audacious' is a bright, peachy-orange shade.

It's much brighter than these pictures can show,

As always, the formula and wearability of these balm stains are incredible.
I HIGHLY recommend you scoop one or two of these babies up for the coming season,
if you haven't already!


Game of Thrones makeup series- R'hllor, The Lord of Light

In honor of that, I'm so excited to pick back up
my Game of Thrones makeup series!
(See HERE for all my Game of Thrones looks last year)

Today's look is based on R'hllor, the Lord of Light.
"For the night is dark and full of terrors."

In case you don't read the books or watch the series,
this is an increasingly popular and apparently strong
or 'real' God in Westeros. 
His most prominent disciple is
the lady Melisandre, who's a freak in and of herself,
and who's also the guiding force behind Stannis Baratheon's movement.

Here's my look for R'hllor:

I used:
Too Faced's Shadow Insurance
Sugarpill's 'Tako'- browbone
Lime Crime's 'Siren' inner corner
SYN Cosmetics' 'Ruthless' -lid
Sugarpill's 'Flamepoint', SYN Cosmetics' 'Blaze'- crease
BFTE's 'Lemon' and Sugarpill's 'Buttercupcake'- waterline

Although the yellow on the waterline turned out a bit too bright,
and the inner corners are a little sloppy,
I still like it.

The Lord of Light is all about fire (obviously),
and often blood sacrifice, so I think the reds were definitely a good choice.
What do you guys think?

'Everything But the Kitchen Sink'

I have my second polish from the new (to me) indie maker,
Indie Polish.

Here's 'Everything But the Kitchen Sink' :)

'Everything But the Kitchen Sink' is a clear topcoat filled with various sizes
and shapes of glitter: hexes, shreds, micro glitter- everything :)
If not black, the colors of the glitter were all Spring-like,
which is what prompted be to buy the polish now.

It's a super cute top coat :)


Grass is Lime Greener

I have my last polish from China Glaze's City Flourish collection to show you today.
It's easily my second favorite of the bunch.
This bad boy is essentially a neon and SCREAMS awesomeness.

Here's 3 coats of 'Grass is Lime Greener'.

'Grass is Lime Greener' is a (shockingly!) neon lime green creme.
Totally perfect for the coming summer.
I can already tell I'll be wearing it to every show I got to :)

What do you guys think of this polish?
I freaking love it.


Metro Pollen-tin

This could not be a more appropriate polish since my eyes are RAVAGED 
by the pollen from everything blooming right now.

Anyway, here's another polish from CG's new City Flourish Spring collection.
This is 3 coats of 'Metro Pollen-ton'.

'Metro Pollen-tin' is a rich "marigold-yellow".
This is one of the few yellow polishes Ive seen hat actually looks good on your nails.
It wasn't streaky, simulating the color of poop or fungus...
it's just a solid polish :)
