leopard print+!

masquerade ball!  i wore a leopard print mask (of course) n_n

originally i was very much against the idea of buying a pre-made mask, because with 1100 people attending the same event there are bound to be others with the same one.  i thought about making my own before realizing i could draw one on with makeup!  i was inspired while reading another blog, though the name completely escapes me.  (i think it's written by a pair of women, and they're very high profile.)

anyways, in the end i ran out of time so i went to diddam's and picked this out of the mardi gras section for $13.  there were about 3 or 4 other girls with my same mask, and many more with it in other colors.  oooooh well.  i did see a few go the makeup route and it looked awesome!  i wish i had taken pictures.

i volunteered for the first hour selling tickets.  they sold 1000 online and i sold the last 100 tickets in 24 minutes.  o_o  so, after that i played customer service and had to tell new people over and over that were totally sold out and couldn't let anyone else in.  ):

i don't have dress photos, but i had leopard print nails! they were fake glue-ons.  why?  because i know i would really go nuts if i tried putting this design on with my awkward left hand:

i made them!  c:

Asami just did a review on the sally hansen nail art pen in white, and i agree that the texture and payout leave a lot to be desired.  you might be able to see that the leopard spots aren't solid black in some places, but for this look it worked out perfectly.

i actually own these pens in seven colors, as a birthday present from a very generous (guy!) friend:

top to bottom: black, light pink, hot pink, blue, red, silver, gold

the bottom three are metallic, and i believe are more pigmented than the others.  i know these are old but i can't seem to find any blogger swatches of them, besides Asami's.  o_O  if you want swatches or a more thorough review, let me know.

finally, i want to share the song love story by jewelry:

they're crying because this is their last stage performance before the group breaks up. T_T it's such a pretty song though, right?

Love your nails! By the way, how did you avoid air bubbles when applying the false nails?

I've been wondering about those nail're right, I haven't seen many reviews on them. Swatches would be lovely.

Thank you so much for the mention! Your nails turned out super cute, (I LOVE interesting French tips) and it looks like the black Sally Hansen pen is much more opaque than the white.
