Here’s an electric blue made from a hideous old eyeshadow. Unfortunately, you can see the lumps on the surface but it made a better nail polish than eyeshadow. This was from the Japanese dollar store. I have no idea why I thought I’d wear this on my eyes, but it was such an alluring shade that I bought it. Unfortunately, as my makeup collection is overflowing, I have to say goodbye to some of these wacky impulse purchases.
So if you’ve got any old eyeshadows laying around and you can’t bring yourself to dump them, try mixing them in clear polish and seeing what you get! This eyeshadow was very pigmented, but I was surprised by the glowiness of the reslting polish.
I hope everyone had a lovely Valentine’s Day. Mine was mellow as usual- I baked bread (OK, OK it was in the breadmaker but still delicious), made some chocolate fondue with mutant strawberries that were bigger than ping-pong balls, and watched Matlock on Youtube. I don’t know if it’s Yankee thriftiness or agoraphobia, but I hate paying double at really crowded restaurants and watching uncomfortable couples on Valentine’s Day, plus it all seems so commercial. Yay for making cards at home and watching cheesy reruns!
Oh, and I’m going to make a “Matlockian Silver” franken. I’ve been thinking that the color of his hair/suit would be good for a spring color…
