Green Nails & Crazy Lashes

I thought I should finally get around to doing product highlights of the week. The ones that have kept me interested throughout ;) First up, is Eyeko's Vintage Polish. I know it's not green, but oh well. It's a gorgeous Minty pastel shade which is cheerful to stare at. This is my criteria for polishes. It has to be pretty to look at, not gloomy like the Barry M Grey.

However I come across a lot of cringing from people around me when I sport this color. It's like I am deviating from the tribe. I know pinks and purples are the usual feminine colors to sport on nails but I really like such colors too. The funniest one I came across was that this color would 'look nice on walls, not nails' lol.

Another unusual product we have here. I can have a wacky week right? These are D110 by Eldora. They are criss-cross which I love, as they provide texture to the lashes. They are beautifully made and I am very impressed with the quality.

The silver lining on the top gives the lashes a lot of oomph. I love how it instantly brightens my eye and adds a sparkle to them. The length may seem radical but trust me they can be easily wearable for parties or night-outs and would look stunning!

The only problem I had with them is that I could not get the end of the lashes to stick in the inner corner properly. Maybe the band is slightly thick and could have been thinner. I guess it has to be kept thick for the glitter line to be seen clearly. I have blended my lashes with them using a mascara.

I know I should have placed them slightly inwards so that the gap in the inner corners is not evident. I am pretty useless with eyelash application really and need a LOT of practice. But I thought I should post this picture so you guys can have a look at these gorgeous lashes :)

Yes - Another red lip in a week considering the fact that I am a 'neutral' person with my colors, it is pretty shocking. But I could not resist slapping this baby on. It is a blood red color and gives you cherry red lips in a swipe.

It is highly pigmented and needs no lipstick for a base. I have never hidden my love for Victoria Jackson Lip glosses and this is another winner.

A surprise package greeted me a few days back and made me a happy bunny! It's from the lovely people at Aussie. Oh by the way, I am officially an 'Aussie's Angel' now hehe. I love the super cute terminology they use. I chose to be in the 'Miracle Moist Tribe' hence received a starter kit accordingly.

I have tried Aussie's products before and have loved them. We are yet to see how well the 'Miracle Moist' works on my dry hair. Will keep you updated gurlies.

Hope you like my 'more pictures, less nonsense' post :p

What are your products for the week? Anything you particularly loved?

I love the look of the Eyeko polish, and those lashes are awesome :D though I think I would be obsessive and have to add glitter liner or silver gel liner to the inner and outer corners to make sure the band was concealed.
