Today I'm showing you Funky Fingers Snakeskin. I'm sure this one is a dupe for some Color Club shade, but I don't know which. I got this at Five Below quite a while ago. Now, just a little caveat/excuse. I'm at my apartment now and in my haste to leave my parents' house I forgot my little digicam. Meaning today you get iPhone pictures. I did my best, but iPhone pictures are just never as good. I'm sorry D: Also, I had to cut off my nails. They were peeling a lot from working and much longer than they normally are.
These were all taken indoors, obviously. The light outside is horrible and gray. I have to say...I absolutely love this color. It's a metallic pewter with gold shimmer. It looks less metallic-y in the bottle than it does on the nail, but it's not brushstroke-y. This was two coats, but I probably could have gotten away with one. This polish is that awesome.
Here you can see that it looks really metallic when you can't see the gold shimmer. I don't know why my skin looks so red. I think because I'm freezing in here. It's the weirdest thing...I don't control the heat in my apartment, so most of the time it's REALLY HOT. My boyfriend and I have been sleeping with the window open, and there has even been a let's-create-a-cross-breeze conversation involving the bathroom window. However sometimes the heat doesn't go on AT ALL, like right now. I am freezing. So, at the end of my ramble my point is this: I think my skin is red because I'm really, really cold.
So purdy! I'm really into this color.
Yesterday I had kind of a bad afternoon so what did I do? I hauled a bit at MAC. The Cham-Pale and Stylishly Yours collections made their debuts yesterday. Honestly, I would like all of each of these. The collections are in direct opposition to one another: Cham-Pale is frosty, light, shimmery and sparkly. Stylishly Yours is bright, creamy and loud. I love them both. But here's what I got.
Vintage Selection Paint Pot, kind of a medium taupe-y frosty color.
Chilled On Ice Paint Pot, a very light, iridescent gold that sometimes has a pink-ish look to it.
Virgin Isle Cream Colour Base, a bright coral. This can be used on the cheeks or lips, but not eyes. Although why one would want this color on one's eyes is absolutely beyond my comprehension.
If I had tons and tons of monies I would buy up both of these collections. But I just had to pick and choose. Virgin Isle is actually part of the permanent collection and is available at PRO stores. Anyway, that's all. What do you guys think of Snakeskin? Is it on your to-buy list? Is anyone else thinking of picking up anything from Cham-Pale or Stylishly Yours? I'm tempted to go back to MAC soon...
