Firstly, a big thank you for more award nominations! Il Ruinante Sir Isaak of Visual Aristokei Core and Duskrose Dreaming of The Midnight Ballroom have also nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award. And Sada of Dressology HQ awarded me the One Lovely Blog award. Thanks so much, Sada, Sir Isaak and Duskrose Dreaming!
And now, on to the Gothy fashion!
We decided not to hold a grudge against the Retro Industrial Dance club that failed us so miserably on April Fool’s night, as described in my previous post, Good Outfit, Bad DJs. We had attended this club once before that shameful night and quite enjoyed it, so we considered this trip the tie-breaker. To our great delight, they actually played Retro Industrial Dance music. And so we danced.
I tried to do my eye make-up a little bit differently this time, so my readers don’t get bored. I used a shimmery magenta by Ben Nye in the crease, and black on the entire lower lid. I also finally perfected the application of some fabulous false lashes, but I forgot to add mascara until after I finished the photos. So you can hardly tell I have lashes at all, except in the second photo below.
I also got a bit fancy with my nails, since I finally went back to acrylics. I can never get polish to stick to my natural nails for more than two hours (I’ve tried every trick and outrageously expensive product in the book!)… But thanks to Perseus’ several surgeries as discussed in this post, I gave up acrylics about a year ago to save some money. I am SO glad to have them back! Now the creativity can begin.
Anyone want a tutorial on this nail design? 😉
