NOTD – Catrice, Nearly Blacks, Noir Vert swatch!

Hey there, Internet!

So it seems I’ve been ignoring the makeup racks at my local DM for quite some time, when I went last time I was not happy with the nailpolish colors at home so I had a closer look at the ones by Catrice. They obviously had a very goth-card-approved collection, the nearly black noir laquers. 4 different dark shades (rouge / red, cassis / purple, bleu / blue and vert / green) 10ml (0.33fl. oz.) bottles for 2.75€ each! Had some argument with my bank account because I definitely spent enough on makeup this month already so I only took the green one with me.

I have to admitt that those new wider brushes most companies use these days are not my favourites but this one actually did work quite well for me! They said one would have an opaque, even color with one coat, for me I needed 2-3 layers to get an even color, sadly then you would not be able to see much of a green shine, the polish appeared to be a plain black but was extreme shiny, more than my common blacks. Did dry pretty fast as well  and I managed to spend more than a day without any visible damages which is pretty good since I was deconstructing my furniture, repotting my plants and all that stuff! I really think that a nearly black collection is a great idea and probably will go for the other colors as well soon, maybe those have a bit more colored pigments than the green ones has!

Did you grab any of these polishes yet? Which one woud be your favourite? Have a nice evening!

Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-07 (II)

Hey there, Internet!

There are not a lot of days that I consider being too warm for a jacket of some kind, but that day definitely was. So the DIY shirt from last post got its first se already because it is one of the thinnest fabrics and loose fit which both are perfect for this hot weather. Still, sunblock on, fan was added to the bag and off to the city, spent that entire day off outside, catching Pokémon!

Would Sunblock and Shadow from whatever we could find count as accessories?

Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-07

Hey there, Internet!

Actually, nothing special was done that day, being lazy, watching DVDs, skype, cleaning the flat and that fuzz. But as you were able to read a few days ago, I slowly am getting back into my old shape which means my corsets and other ‘tight fitting’ clothes start to feel better on me again, who could resist putting them back on asap?

Today’s Outfit & Makeup 16-06 (II)

Hey there, Internet!

Another day off that I spent with that friend from last time and Pokémon X/Y, it definitely will be a tough challenge because we both started with generation one and both maybe a tiny bit obsessed. Really looking forwards for the next few weeks, will be visiting a friend in northern Germany soon so maybe some long overdue clubbing night!
