bareMinerals Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 The Finer Things for Holiday 2012 Swatches & Review

Bare Minerals The Finer Things

This holiday season bareMinerals wants YOU to have The Finer Things. And The Finer Things just happens to be the name of their new Ready Eyeshadow 8.0 palette.

This palette features eight nicely pigmented eyeshadow, a large mirror inside, a dual-ended applicator brush and a mini Prime Time Eyelid Primer.

I believe this is my first experience with bareMinerals eyeshadows and let me say right now I am really impressed with the texture and pigmentation of these. Most excellent!

China Glaze Holiday Glitter Tipped Nails Featuring For Audrey

China Glaze For Audrey Holiday NailsOK

Last week when I was playing around with China Glaze For Audrey I decided it might be festive to do a glittery tipped nail look with it as the base.

I kinda sorta like what I came up with. This was my first attempt at doing this kind of nail and it’s really pretty straightforward. I did learn that you have to use a nicely contrasting shade for the tip and also ensure the glitter is large enough. Initially I tried a different silver glitter and it was too fine and “sugary” so it didn’t show up as much.
