I dyed my hair a fiery red.
First I gave myself chunky highlights at home, which would have looked nice, if they hadn't had a yellowy "caramel" cast. Yellow looks awful on me. If my hair is blonde, it has to be ashy.
So, I went over my highlighted head with "intense light auburn", and got beautiful Jello-red thick chunks, and the rest of it turned out the way the box suggested. I am happy with it. I really love having BRIGHT red hair, and this isn't fading as fast as the semi-permanent Special FX dye I usually use.
I've tried taking photos, but the camera doesn't capture the candy-apple red; it just looks like an early Tori Amos dye job, which isn't quite accurate. Sigh.

In other super-exciting beauty news, I rediscovered Fyrinnae eyeshadows (www.fyrinnae.com). This is a small indie company that makes exceptional loose shadows. Many of them are dye-free. The colors are unusual and multi-dimensional; for instance, "Digital Faerie" has a deep sky blue base with green shimmer, so it appears as a complex teal. "Meerkat" is a pink-purple with gold shimmer and sparkles. My eyes are one of my best features, so I'm looking forward to some serious eye glam to make them pop.

I've had a light golden-green shimmer polish on my fingers for 3 days called "Cha Cha Cha" by China Glaze. It hasn't chipped or dented at all, which is remarkable. And I'm enjoying the color too much to take it off, which is also remarkable. See, I have so many polishes in my collection at this point that I'm driven to change the color almost daily. What is it about this weird springy green that I like so much?? It's such an optimistic shade; it reminds me of new leaves. It contrasts well with my dark purple clothing and coordinates nicely with my green clothing. It looks nice with my fiery hair. It works with my skintone even though it seems like it shouldn't.

Ah well. As obsessions go, nail polish and eyeshadow are pretty harmless...although, I would like to shift back into art and/or jewelry making.
