Hello Waffle Cosmetics Visage November 2016 Unboxing & Review


Hello Waffle Cosmetics November 2016

Hello readers,
Today I have Hello Waffle Cosmetic's November visage to share with you. I'm a bit late with this one as it is clearly December, but swatching the Howl lipsticks took over my makeup swatching time for a little while. November was the second anniversary of the visage subscription and was inspired my Joseph Jacob's The Buried Moon. The colour palette features a mix of cool tones, shimmer and sparkle. Let's take a look at what was included.

Plum & Silver Nail Art


Purple stamping polish

Hello readers,
Today I have quick nail art look to share with you. I love mixing finishes and colours with a stamped accent to create pulled together look. I started with China Glaze Crimson on my pointer and pinky fingers along with Julep Missy on my middle and ring finger. Then I used China Glaze Crimson and MoYou London plate Pro XL 06 to add a floral design to my ring finger. I sealed everything up with a coat of CND Super Shiney top coat. Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.

A Little Bit Of Everything Purple Nail Art


Marble nail art

Hello readers,
I've made it to week three of four for Beautometry's Next Top Swatcher competition. For those of you who voted for me in past weeks, thank you! This week's theme was 'purple' and you know I love purple polish. I couldn't quite decide which nail art technique to focus on so I mixed a little stamper marbling, some gradients and some stamping to come up with this look.
