NOTD: O.P.I Vampsterdam!

I have splurged on something during my tight budget and one of the things was this OPI nail polish from the Holland collection. It was on sale though, so I got a nice deal and took it home with me :)

It's a gorgeous dark plummy color with microshimmer. It looks so pretty! You can't really see the shimmer on nails but it looks really shiny nevertheless, it think it looks frosty in different lighting too.

The quality was a tiny disappointment, I was expecting for a good coverage but the first layer was striky and didn't look good. Two layers was ok but I would say three layers is definitely needed with this one. But look how pretty!

Thanks for reading!

I see pan :) + update!

Wow it's been a while!

I've been on a tight budget lately and that has been the main reason for the lack of posts during this year.  I can't buy anything really and therefore I've lost my intrest to explore all the new beauty stuff out there. Can't buy so why look?

But now, there's some pretty great spring collections and new exciting stuff out there and I think  I smell a comeback :) Stay patient, I can't control my no-buy forever, right?

As a result of my shopping ban, I have used the items in my collection so heavily that I can see pan in products that I thought were impossible to use up!

My beloved MAC MSF Soft and gentle has been in my daily routine for the whole beginning of the year and look what happened...

Also coral blushes have been loved and used with a heavy hand as you can see...

Also nude eye shadow is being used on daily bases, these look so dirty and ragged, I desperately need new ones...

Also one NYX Powder Blush in Taupe is totally gone and I don't have a back up..I'm devastated!

And my all time favourite highlighter is showing pan too...

Here's the thing. I think it's time for a new blush. And a highlighter. And some new eye shadow and a base, my Too Faced eye shadow base has run out too. I think I'll be back soon :)
