Salut mes amis! Today's abstract "Tropical" makeup look was inspired by a set of funky Nail Dress stickers by Kiss and was created using some of my favorite products. With all the holiday madness going on right now, I just wanted to conceptualize something different and fun for my kind of holiday season. Not to worry, I will have plenty of Christmas-y goodness coming up after this post -- today, I just wanted to revisit my artistic side and show you something fresh! I don't know about you, but I need a little break from all the ready-to-wear makeup hehe...

Kiss Nail Dress French or Full strips in Eyelet (launching Feb 2013)
Although I consider myself a nail artist, I admit, I don't always have the time to create intricate, hand-painted nail designs. During the busy holiday season, I rely on nail stickers, polish appliqués, and nail art strips, such as this Kiss Nail Dress French or Full set in Eyelet. This double-sided set is one of my favorites and can go on as a full strip or a french tip strip, depending on which side you choose. This feature provides twice the options and is great for adding a few accent nails to your mani.
Application and Wear: The strips apply easily without any major bubbling or peeling and are said to last up to 10 days. I'm on day 3 -- so far so good!
Contains: Each set comes with 22 dual-end strips.
Color / Design: Eyelet
- Shiny black base with colorful, neon brush strokes and tiny textured rhinestone accents
Availability: Kiss Nail Dress French or Full Strips are available at CVS, Walgreens and Kmart, retailing for about $7 per set.
Inspired by the Eyelet design of Kiss Nail Dress, I decided to create a matching dress for my Eye :) Here's what I came up with!
- Lime Crime eyeshadow in Lotus Noir (black) -- Lime Crime Chinadoll Palette
- Makeup Geek eyeshadow in Vanilla Bean (semi-matte ivory)
- Lime Crime uniliners in:
- Quill (shiny black)
- 6th Element (orange)
- Citreuse (yellow-green)
- Lunar Sea (white) -- used for the accent dots
- Prestige Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Big Teal
- Darkness Lashes VZ #K-3000 (similar)
A slight variation on my right eye :)
For the Pop of Pink, I added my favorite lipstick of all time:
I've featured Schiap in countless blog posts and it just never gets old. This hot pink looks great on everyone -- this I promise you -- and is a must-have for every makeup junkie!
The full ensemble!
I'm ready to PARTY!!
