NYCC Part 2: Geekified Accessories

 
Happy Hump Day, everybody!

Today is Part 2 of the NY Comic Con series, featuring all of my geekified accessories that I wore over the weekend. They were actually so popular on Tumblr, Instagram, and amongst my friends in general that I've opened up my own Etsy shop. (Okay, that's the only one of my shameless plugs for this post)

First up are the shoes that I wore on Thursday for my photo op with Karl Urban, featuring his character, Leonard "Bones" McCoy, on each shoe. Of course, I had to include the USS Enterprise on the toes!

NYCC Part 1: Thursday Hair, Makeup, and Shoes!



Hello, everyone! I hope that you had a lovely weekend! I know that I most certainly did!

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen that I was out and about at New York Comic Con. The convention took place from Thursday to Sunday at the Javits Center, which fun fact: will be the location for my Bar Exam in July. (Okay, not so fun fact). I was fortunate enough to attend on Thursday and Sunday. Even more fortunately, I was able to not only take a photo with one of my favorite actors, but also have my hair and makeup done by the amazing Valerie Star of Caravan Stylist Studio.

Milani Red Chevron Gradient

Happy Hump Day, everybody!

While I'm in prepping mode for NYC Comic Con, I thought I'd post some nail art using three of the new red shades from the Milani Color Statement Collection.

I've actually never worn chevrons (I KNOW, RIGHT?!?), so I thought I'd do a bit of a chevron gradient because there were a ton of beautiful reds in this collection. I have four more to show you still!


From cuticle to tip, I used Enchanting, Modern Rouge, and Red Label.

Enchanting is a gorgeous blackened-red, bordeaux cream, Modern Rouge is a rich cherry red cream, and Red Label is a bright tomato red cream.

I only needed one coat of Enchanting to achieve opacity, while I needed two coats each of Modern Rouge and Red Label.

These are PERFECT colors for the fall!

The new Milani Color Statement line is now available at CVS stores for just $3.99 or from Milani’s website HERE at just $3.99 each.

Keep an eye out for a future review of the remaining reds in the Color Statement polish collection!

Milani Monday: Funky Teal Daisies


It's a Milani Monday here at Princess Polish! I'm decided to use two of the green-leaning shades from the new Color Statement collection, along with a little gold, to create a look similar to the Antique Flowers I tried last week.


I used Mint Crush for the base, which you can see is a pastel mint cream. Then I used Tattle Teal for the flowers and Gilded Rocks for the center of the flowers.

The new Milani Color Statement line is now available at CVS stores for just $3.99 or from Milani’s website HERE. Truly, these are a great value at just $3.99.

Stay tuned... more Color Statement polish reviews are on their way!
