MAC Viva Glam 2012 Campaign

Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj in the M·A·C Viva Glam 2012 campaign visual shot by David LaChapelle. Every cent of Ricky and Nicki's Viva Glam products, on-counter February 2012, goes to support the M·A·C AIDS Fund.

I'm looking forward to trying out the line!



Shellac Layering - Barbie Pink


I've never been so happy with Shellac layering before. I got the idea from I Heart Cosmetics blog to layer Gotcha & Strawberry Smoothie. What did I get? Barbie pink!

Here's what I did:
Shellac base coat - cure for 10 seconds
1 coat of Gotcha - cure for 2 minutes
1 coat of Strawberry Smoothie - cure for 2 minutes
Shellac top coat - cure for 2 minutes

This looks a lot like Zoya's Barbie shade. It may be very Spring/Summer, but will sport it for 2 weeks in the Fall nonetheless.
