I know that’s it’s a bit of a trend of the moment (really when isn’t this in trend?) to have one accent nail of a different color, so I wanted to share my current cream & glitter Mani! I’ve been curious about the Milani one coat glitter polish for a while now, and I’ve got to tell you- it’s pretty awesome! It’s not too hard to remove and it has a matte finish (the pictures here have a glossy topcoat). As for the “one coat” claim- eh, I’m not sure. I’d say with a base color, yeah, these do the trick with one coat. Maybe they would also be one coat with just a base coat. I don’t know, I’m a nail polish amateur. As evidence see my poor application and dry cuticles. Hey! I use hand sanitizer maybe 20 times a day (and no I don’t have OCD; I’m a makeup artist, so it’s necessary)
Today I’m finally sharing my swatches and thoughts on Inglot shadows! For those of you who are out of the loop here’s a brief breakdown: Inglot is a makeup company that started in Poland about 20 years ago. They’ve been in the US for a while (though they’ve only had 2 stores, and until very recently no way to buy online) Luckily Inglot recently launched an online store for the U.S. – YIPPIE!

Sometimes I get asked a question and while I’m responding to the comment, message, or email I realize that an answer or topic might be helpful a lot of people! I know that sometimes it may seem that Gurus Blogger/Vloggers in the beauty community are speaking their own makeup-crazed language. No one has all the answers, but I know a thing or two, and I’d like to be your tour guide So I’m going to start a new series called Ask Cora. I have a few back-logged Q & A’s but if you have a question you’d like answered, please shoot me an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org **. Remember there are no stupid questions- makeup doesn’t come with a manual
“Dear Cora: How do I avoid eyeshadow fall-out? It’s just i haven’t a clue and it bothers me when I have some foundation on and then I have to run a make-up wipe over my face and re-apply it D: So anyway… thanks - Googlyeyesrule”Continue reading →
I just wanted to touch bases with you on a couple of things: I know Mr. VOT and I were supposed to do our “reverse” husband tag video (wife tag?) this week but our schedules conflicted all week so we’ve had very little time together much less time to film a video together- but it’s coming. Better late than never eh? Speaking of better late than never- My REAL Inglot review is coming up, but it looks like it might have to wait until mon or tues. Review videos takes a bit more for me to organize my thoughts and edit etc and I work all weekend though Monday, so yeah, that whole time thing. Don’t we all wish we had infinite time? I swear I’m not intentionally putting it off!
If I show you pretty swatches will you forgive me?
aaaaaaaand another angle
These were swatched DRY with a flat shader brush, over some concealer as a base.
