black moon nails

Photobucket

Ohh, my eyes are so swollen. Especially the right one. Really distorting-may-face, affecting-my-vision swollen. (Veeeery attractive, hehe). But I still need to leave the house. So: high heels, a beautiful dress, and... how to detract from the scary eyes? I won't wear any eye make up until they're better (mmm, great) so, some high hair and bright pink might help. And I gave my nails a pale pink and black moon manicure. I was inspired by the lovely they'd have called me the bar nothing to paint the moons another colour. I like it! I am going to get some little stickers, though, to make the moons perfect – I am really fussy about neatness when it comes to my nails, and my freehanding... well, it has that human touch..!

Stunning! Those nails are gorgeous... It's a pretty mani to do. I'd just like to say I wish I looked good on a dress, puffy eyes and all ;) Danielle (DivasPolish)

I had a similar eye problem a few weeks ago, and it was awful! No eye shadow, mascara, or liner for days, and everywhere I went I felt like people were staring at my scary red eyeballs.

Hope they get better soon! You still look gorgeous, as always :)

So pretty! You really did that manicure freehand?! Much better than I would have fared. I love that vintage look with the moons left bare or painted a pale pink--it's so feminine. I know just what you mean about the puffy eye blues--something about pink lipstick always makes me feel better when I have allergy-face too.

Miss Emmi said...

Oh dear, do you have any idea what may have caused the reaction? Hope you get better soon! At least your hair, nails, lips, dress... well, basically everything bar your right eye looks stunning!

Natasha said...

those nails are really cool, definitely an incentive for me to stop biting mine! You're hiding your right eye, but I'm sure it's fine, your left one looks normal to me? Anyway, you look lovely, as always, and I really like that lipstick colour on you :)
