Nails: Alternative / Goth Wedding Inspired

A little while ago I did some traditional wedding inspired nails, and so I thought I would do something a little more 'me' and do them in black rather than just white. More of a goth or alternative wedding inspired nail art.


Tip Polish: Kiko - Black 275
Sheer Polish: Miss Sporty - Goth Me Black
Stamping Polish: MoYou - Special Nail Polish - Black
Stamping Plate: Born Pretty Store 02

Make Up Collection: Concealer and Contour

Concealer and Contour
We have reached the final few make up draws which are more of a mixture of things rather than specific draws. This one contains three concealers and contour products.

Collection - Lasting Perfection: I have both shades 1 and 2 of this, [full comparison post here]. I do think that shade 2 is too dark for me and there could be a 1.5 shade. It lasts and has good coverage.

NYX - Blush: Taupe, this is a really light brown grey tone, which is good for pale skin tones. I like this as it is the only one I have used which doesn't make me look muddy or dirty in some way. Blends out easily but is buildable.

Illamasqua - Cream Pigment: Hollow, this is another good product for pale skin tones. It is a cream contour which I still haven't fully managed to master. It does look natural I find if I use it over a liquid foundation but before a powder. Makes the contour look more like a natural contour than something sitting on top of the skin.

ELF - All Over Cover Stick: Apricot Beige, this is quite a thick waxy product. Another shade which is too dark / orange for my skin tone. If I had a colour match then I think it would be a good one for blemishes.

Stamping Plate: Born Pretty Store - BP02 Lace


Last year Born Pretty Store came out with there own stamping plates, as soon as I saw this lace design one I knew I had to get it.

The plate itself is backed with paper, so no sharp edges. It has three full nail images and eight single images. The full nail images are quite small, you could get away with the large tree and the scene images but if you have longer nails then then snowflake plate would be tricky to work with.


The images stamped really easily, I really like the lace designs and they are quite versatile as you can use all different colour ways.

I have used the stamping plate a couple of times and you can click here for all the nail art using the plate.
