I am so in love with this dress! The colours remind me of the sunset reflecting onto a mermaid tail, which is where I got the name from. A lot of my looks will probably include pieces I make and also include my creepy low hallway into my studio. The lipstick I'm wearing is from one of my favourite indie brands: Impulse Cosmetics. Handmade and vegan, can't go wrong!

It's been almost a year since I've posted last! It was nice taking the time off to really focus on my clothing line: Tooth and Eye, but I miss blogging. This isn't really anything special, just a quick look I wore to the post office and to grab a coffee. I have a slight obsession with velvet leggings and wearing multiple scarves. Hair: combo of Manic Panic Ultra Violet and Special Effects Cupcake Pink diluted with conditioner.

Review | Cult Cosmetics Black Box October 2013

Hello lovlies! It's been a while! As a lot of you know I spend a majority of my time sewing clothing and crafting accessories for my clothing and accessory label: FoxTale, so I don't have time to blog as much, but I'll try a little harder for you guys!

October was a super busy month for me, but I discovered a new subscription box and had to share:




What I like best about this box is that it's all nail polish and nail accessories! I buy so many nail polishes so this is perfect for me. My first box was 50% off and then it's $25USD a month after that.

What Blackbox promises:

- 3 seasonal nail polishes
- a professional nail tool
- always on trend



What I received:

- OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps in Blue and Gry Rattlesnake
- MASH 2400 Piece 12 Color Round Nail Art Rhinestones
- OPI Liquid Sand in "Jinx"
- Color Club Nail Lacquer in "Beyond"
- Essie Polish in "The Girls Are Out"
- KDS Nail Glue

Now for more photos and swatches!

OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps in Blue and Gry Rattlesnake




"Made from real nail lacquer OPI nail apps combine the ease of a decal with the beauty and art of a salon manicure. Each pack contains 16 pieces and is good for one application with a few leftover pieces to account of varying nail sizes."


Price: CDN$13.75

Animal testing: No, but parent company does

I've never used nail stickers before so I'm a little excited to try these. A lot of people have been raving about the quality and how long they last. Snake print isn't really my jam, but I think it'll be cute as an accent nail, or cutting them short to look like tips.


MASH 2400 Piece 12 Color Round Nail Art Rhinestones




"These new rhinestones have an elegant ROUND (simple rhinestone shape) design to increase the amount of nail art options available to you. Each wheel contains 100 rhinestones of 12 different colors for a total of 1,200 rhinestones allowing you to create endless patterns by adding shiny colors & sparkles to your nail art."


Price: USD$5.99

Get it here
Animal testing: Couldn't find any info, but didn't really look that hard to be honest so if you have info please comment and link below!

These are as basic as you can get when it comes to nail are rhinestones, definitely a nail art junkie staple! The packaging on this clearly blows, as you can tell all of the rhinestones got mixed up. The lid is attached pretty good so I'll have to dump them all out and reorganize them...or not because I'm too lazy. The glue that came with everything is perfect to use for this!

 Now onto the polishes!


OPI Liquid Sand in "Jinx"





"A semi-sheer coral base with definitive pink undertones, filled with gold and coral glitter in varying ultra-fine to small sizes"

Price: CDN$8.95
Get it here
Animal testing: No, but parent company does

This polish is pretty sheer so it would be amazing as a top coat over a deep orange or coral. It definitely has a soft sand like texture that I am in love with! Feels like velvet nails, but less fuzzy. I used two coats for the swatch.


Color Club Nail Lacquer in "Beyond"





"A deep, warm, smoky gray-black with holographic shimmer."

Price: CDN$10
Get it here
Animal testing: Cruelty free AND vegan <3

I am so overly obsessed with the hologram trend so I freaked out a little when I pulled this out of the box! It's rainbowy, glittery, holographic radness! Major bonus points for being cruelty free and vegan! I'm definitely going to buy more from this brand! I used two coats for the swatch, but it's so rich and creamy you could get away with one coat no problem.


Essie Polish in "The Girls Are Out"




"A vibrant, fuchsia pink with soft white/silver sparkle suspended in it."

Price: CDN$7.95
Get it here
Animal testing: Cruelty free AND vegan <3

My swatch came out a little dark and the glitter didn't show up that well, but most of the other swatches I've seen online make the polish seem way more pink than it actually is. This is the most lacklustre polish in the trio, but it's still so cute. The fine glitter makes it different from anything else I have in my collection. I used two coats for the swatch.





One of the niftiest things about the Blackbox is it came with a little inspiration card. Thanks to the little rhinestones included I can recreate all these super cute and totally doable looks!



Oh I also got a little Cult Cosmetics sticker in the box, I love little freebies like that!

I hope you enjoyed my little review!

Until next time Dolls and Cats,
Bisque

Mini Haul | UrbanOG.com - Shoes and Accessories

This was a much needed shoe haul and of course I had to throw in a couple accessories for good measure! I had been wearing the same two pairs of shoes for a couple months now and they were starting to get a little... unpleasant ha ha ha eww! Overall I spent $100USD after shipping and with a coupon code.

I've ordered from UrbanOG.com before and love their array of extremely affordable shoes. I haven't ordered clothing from them yet, nothing has really caught my eye, but their shoes! Love them!

My sort of "theme" for shoes was definitely the 90s hologram style!



These are pretty amazing in person! So iridescent/holographic and beautiful! They're listed as $11.60 so definitely affordable! They're quite stiff and take a little bit to break them in. They fit true to size. They're not the most amazing quality, but they're under $15 so that's to be expected.



These are identical to the silver, but obviously in the black version! They fit the same as my silver ones so their size consistency seems to be dead on. There is also a gold version I might pick up next time. I also feeling like re-buying all the colours so I can modify them <3



I love these, but they fit a little small and won't be good for wide feet. These are listed at $24.20 and I highly recommend ordering a half size up especially if you have wide feet. These will take a little while for me to break in, but they definitely stand out, I've had many compliments on them!


Sadly the sunglasses and the earrings I bought aren't available anymore :(

I am in love with round sunglasses! I feel like not many people can really pull them off, but I love them and have been buying them for years! And of course I got pentagram earrings! They have no symbolic meaning to me, but I love stars and I feel like wearing pentagrams is the only way I can wear stars without feeling like a little kid ha ha ha!

Have you ever bought anything from UrbanOG.com before?
Let me know your experiences and what you bought!

If you do order from them check their Facebook page often because they post coupon codes quite frequently. I ended up using a 20% off code that's now expired, but like I said they post them often.

I'm touching up/fixing my hair this week so I will be using all my new goodies in outfit posts in the future!

Until next time Dolls and Cats,
Bisque

PS I live in Canada and UrbanOG.com uses UPS which if you live in Canada you know that means major customs and brokerage fees! I ended up paying an additional $35 for customs fees, yikes! This is obviously out of UrbanOG's control, but I emailed them and they said that people can request USPS instead on the customer notes part. Definitely doing that next time!

Outfit | Lazy Cleaning Outfit

Today was a cleaning day, but I decided I'd take a break and play around with some sort of indoor setup for taking outfit photos. As you can see I'm definitely no pro!


I love that top way too much and wear it much too often! It's just so comfy.
