New Year's Eve - 1st post of the year.

Hello & happy 2013!

I hope you're not superstitious and are not looking at 2013 reluctantly and with a bad feeling, 'cuz that's not the best way to start the year ;) I mostly believe that what goes around comes around, karma and all that stuff. I am safe. Sort of. 

I have to admit I had some trouble sticking to the Spanish tradition of swallowing 12 grapes, one for each stroke before midnight. I was laughing because I put 13 grapes on The Boyfriend's cup and right in the end he exclaimed "fack, I lost count!". In summary, I ended up with around 8 grapes on my mouth because I couldn't swallow quick enough. Hilarious, but I hope that won't make 2013 any shittier than it is already, potentially.

Enough bla bla, on to my simple make up for New Year's Eve; face washed and black liner. I swear I had some blush on, but here's the proof I have the skin of an undead.
As for the nails, I opted for a re-version of Dita Von Teese's nude half moons and added grey french tips. I used Anny Open my Heart (that somehow I always want to call Rip my Heart Open; yuck!) as a base and China Glaze Stone Cold for the tips. Fist picture is matte Stone Cold, next one is topped off with Poshé.
I matched my dress somehow :)
So again, special occasion makes me show my face in here not once, but twice! Happy new year, ladies! Take care!

  11. That is a neat tradition of 12 grapes at midnight, it gives you something to do instead of yea! it's midnight, go to bed.... I have to say I was a bit negative yesterday... sighing over the house mortgage... mort - gage, = dead - pledge.... my husband said "yep that's a nice way to start the new year honey". LOL!

    Anyhow, you look very pretty, love the nails and they are AWESOME with the dress! I will take your advice and be more cheerful. Happy new year!

    1. Haha, well you know in Spain everything starts at midnight, that night! Drinking cames and then disco, it's tradition. Bed can wait until 7 or 8 am, usually. Excessive!

      Ah well you were not on the best of moods then! Stop rambling about bad things, don't call the bad weather as we say here.

      Thank youuuuu!

  13. Happy New Year!

    As a former Goth, I am super jealous of your 'pale as death' skin. That dress is killer and your nails are fabulous! I hope those grapes were small, lol.

    1. :D thank you! The grapes were bigger than what I am used to because I pick the tiniest ones. This time... no choice! Hence the fail :p

  15. I wish you a Happy New Year, better than all the other ones, my all your wishes come true! First of all I love your dress and that you made a matching manicure that makes it much more elegant and attractive! Your story with the grapes is very funny, the tradition is similar here too, but I can not eat now grapes :(
