As I pack up my life of the last 5+ years, I keep finding weird things I’ve bought and never used. I have tried to be more conscious of this and really only buy what I need, but sometimes I get a case of “wow, look at this strange Japanese thing!” Cosmetics are especially dangerous.
Case in point: I keep buying eyeshadows. I hardy ever wear them. I’m practically blind and I have to wear Coke-bottle thick glasses. I’m pretty sure you can’t even see my eyes behind them! I do have contacts, but found that I couldn’t wear them all day and stare at a computer screen without my eyes feeling like the Sahara. So…eyeshadow is pretty much wasted on me, yet it draws me in with its glittery goodness.
So, I found another dusty eyeshadow in my drawer- Revlon Diamond Lust in Starry Pink. I did wear it once, and it looked like I got beat up by a fairy. Pink eyeshadow generally doesn’t work on me, but this one is exactly the color my eyes turn when I have a cold (minus the glitter, of course.)
Luckily….you know what happens next! It made a really nice polish.
I used an eyeshadow brush to loosen the shadow into a silicone baking cup, added some clear polish, and mixed it up. Sweet and simple.
I’m not really a baby pink kind of girl (yes, I know I did buy this polish and I make some pretty frou-frou nails!) but I liked this one. It looks nice and clean. But since I can never leave well enough alone, I added some quick white French tips and a little rose on the ring finger.
Please forgive the crooked tips, I haven’t had my caffeine fix just yet.
All right, back to cleaning, packing, sorting and all that not-so-fun stuff.
