French polish that doesn’t chip… This is a before and after using the Manicare Nail White pencil.
Trim nails and tidy up, file, buff, clear coat… Then wet fingertips and dip the pencil “lead” in water, before filling in beneath the nails.
Leaving some of the white product under the nail seems to help the effect last longer, it will wash away eventually.
The first I’ve heard of Grace Choi’s project, and her TechCrunch presentation, was via a Stuff article linked by a friend.
Mink was completely missed by both my friend and the commenters on Stuff who instead focused on the image mapping video at the lead of the story. Sure, image mapping is cool and advancing it to track with facial movement is pretty incredible, however until there’s plausibility to us walking around in the dark with a rig and projector attached, it’s not “the future of makeup”.
Mink, however, might be. It’s taking a new step in printing, and breaking makeup down to it’s (cheap) components - pigment, and base, so that consumers can control what they have access to in terms of shades.
Haul! The outlet pharmacy at Dressmart in Onehunga is my favourite place to ferret for beauty gems and bargains.
There are gifts here for my sister, friend and a a couple for myself (of course).
I was particularly excited to find the Tangle Teezer brushes for about $23 each. Hoorah!
My latest iHerb haul! I’m really excited as the Mineral Eyeshadow Primer is the first shadow primer I have found that actually seems to work on my exceptionally crease-prone lids!
Several face masques in this lot, many discounted trial items including a retinol serum I’m hoping will help to erase some acne scarring on my face.
The Eco Tools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge is quite nice for a gentle cleanse/exfoliation with my usual cleanser. And I’m loving the Mane n’ Tail Herbal Gro Spray Therapy - it’s a leave in treatment that helps with detangling, shine, and condition and it smells nice too!
