This Week's Etsy Finds

I spend a lot of time on the internet looking for fun accessories and clothes. I always check out websites such as Etsy and Boticca because you can always find such unique things on there some cheap and some expensive. Etsy has a lot of items on their website so sometimes it's hard to find what your looking for so I thought I would share with you guys every week a few of my favorite Etsy finds. This weeks finds are the following:

Kylie Jenner's Tuxedo Nails

A few weeks ago I posted Zooey Deschanel's tuxedo nails (here) and when I found the top picture of Kylie Jenner's tuxedo nails on Instagram I thought I would recreate this look as well. I like both tuxedo nails and they were both very easy to make. If you would like to see a tutorial on how I made this tuxedo nail look leave a comment below!

Jello Shots in Oranges (Recipe)

I never had jello shots before so when I found this recipe on Not Martha I decided I would make these jello fruit shots! They came out delicious and I can't wait to make them again! On Not Martha you can find really good detailed instructions on how to make these. 

Step 1: Take your oranges and slice them in half. 

Step 2: Use a sharp knife to cut out the pulp from the orange but make sure to keep the orange intact. 

Step 3: Make your jello and pour it into the oranges. Make sure to put them on a glass or a muffin tin so they stay up right. 

Step 4: Put them in the fridge and let them become jello. 

Step 5: Once they are done, cut them in half and eat them!

Can't wait!

Sweet Pea and Fay

My latest obsession is lip gloss! I was on Etsy and I found a shop SweetPea and Fay. They sell make up and the colors are gorgeous and they have a really wide range of eye shadows on their shop and yes hey ship internationally which is always a plus. I bought 4 lip glosses and an eyeshadow. One gloss and the eyeshadow will be in a package for a giveaway I have coming up. 

Moving on.. The 3 glosses I got are Heliotrope, The Gilded Lady and Ranunculus from theire J'adore Les Levres collection. The collection is out of stock but on their facebook page it says it will be back mid January. I love the names of these products especially Ranunculus! I don't know if its a word but its amazing! 

The lavender colored lip gloss is very smooth and shiny I absolutely love it and it is called Heliotrope. The pink lip gloss gives more of a matte finish (and I lately prefer the matte lipsticks over shinier ones) and it has the lovely name Ranunculus. Last but not least is the amazing out of this world goldish bronze color which is The Gilded Lady. I love it because its not your typical lip gloss but it is still wearable!

Being the polish-aholic that I am I had to recreate Zooey Deschanel's nails at the Golden Globes. So cute! You might know Zooey Deschanel from a new show, New Girl. If you don't go watch that show because its funny!
For my recreation I stuck to the classic black and white to make it my own. I absolutely love this tuxedo manicure and it was so simple to do. If you would like to see a tutorial on this nail look please let me know.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Anime Lip Tar

In my previous Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics post (here) I wrote how I was waiting to receive my Anime lip tar, well it is finally here! My god am I obsessed with OCC lip tars and if you want one get Anime! Its such a gorgeous bright color and its just to die for! In the Netherlands you can get them at Pro MakeUp Store. They have a wide selection and also OCC pigments. These lip tars cost €10.75 each. But its worth it trust me but do make sure you have a lip brush because you can't use the lip tars like a normal lip gloss.

New In: MAC Cosmetics

I stopped by the MAC counter a few days ago and got the Sketch eyeshadow. I saw Nikkie Tutorials use it in one of her tutorials and it looked gorgeous and so I went to get it. I love it and I can't wait to use it!

Urban Decay Naked Palette

I finally decided to get myself the fantastic Urban Decay Naked palette. I was lucky that Sephora had a 25% discount on all make up purchases so I got it for cheaper, which is always a plus, right?! It comes with a mini Eyeshadow primer and a Karma brush. I didn't make any swatches because I figured almost everyone owns this palette or they have seen it all over the internet but if you do want swatches let me know and I will put some.

Violent Lips Again

I gave in and bought myself some more Violent Lips tattoos as you can see in the first picture. They recently came out with some new ones which I also wanna get, hehe. Will see what the new year will bring for me and whether I will get them or not. I got the red glitterrati, the pink stars and the pink bite. You can check out my previous post about Violent Lips here

I actually ended up trying my rainbow one a few days ago. It didn't come out perfect but its ok because I plan on testing them out again on Christmas. I will say for the first few seconds it feels a little weird on but then you get used to it. Also it wasn't so easy for me to put them on but practice makes perfect!
