OMG I think I duped RBL Scrangie.

More on that later... first, really quickly, my FOTD and outfit of the day.

The makeup isn't particularly special, I just really like the eyeliner. I used Smashbox's Artist pencil eyeliner in Antique Gold and put Mac's Birds and Berries eyeshadow over top. It came out really cool! Like a olivey green blue gold color.

There is a bit of creasing in the closed eye shot as it was taken after I had been running about in 90 degree weather for 6 hours.

Next up, my outfit! I got the top a little while back and hadn't worn it yet. I'm intending to buy a black blazer to go over it, but I wore a cardigan today instead.

The flowered top is from Bebe, the cardigan is from Wet Seal, jeans are Old Navy and the shoes are actually from Payless! lol. Necklace is my mum's, I'm not sure where it's from.

The neat thing about the top is that its a corset...

It's a bit unusual - it doesn't sit against my sides, it flares slightly. I like it, but after wearing it all day, it's a bit misshapen. I may have to get it dry cleaned.



I think I duped RBL Scrangie.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie (you can Google an image, I don't want to steal anyone's) is a coveted color by many polish lovers. I picked up some more clear polish and got to work on a custom color. I wanted to use a certain one, and ended up adding in this, that... and got what I think is pretty darn close.

I used:
- Wet n Wild clear nail polish (poured out about 1/10th of the bottle)
- Fyrinnae Curiouser and Curiouser (about 1/8 teaspoon)
- Fyrinnae Herbivore (about 1/8 teaspoon)
- Fyrinnae Freya (not much, maybe 2 pinches)

This is insanely difficult... near impossible... to photograph. I could probably do okay in sunlight but the sun was setting here and it was not cooperating. When I wear it as a manicure, I will be sure to take outdoor shots. For now, you'll have to live with tons of crappy "close enough" shots. Most are slightly blurred because it was the only way to capture the purple effect indoors.

That's about the best I can do at the moment, sorry guys! I'm really impressed. I can't wait to wear it!


  1. Amazing! It looks really close to the RBL..not entirely sure though since I don't own RBL Scrangie.

  2. That outfit is the cutest thing I've ever seen in. my. life. You hot mama ;)

  3. I looooove that corset! hot stuff! I have corsets that do that, though, don't sit on you quite right. It really depends on what the boning is made of and how you have it laced (make sure it's laced in the middle, not at the bottom.) Often boning in corsets you don't get made is plastic and it just won't not bend, which really pisses me off when I wear them. But I've taken the plastic out and they still bend. Gah! You can get the bones replaced but srsly don't bother, it's stupidly expensive.


    I really, really, really want to play with polishes, now!

  4. hi!
    i just found your blog and i like it!
    please pass by my blog if you have time and follow me!


  5. Love that top and I have the same shoes! I definitely need to break mine in a whole lot more though, they're still so tight in the toes.

    The nail color is awesome. Very creative. I've never made my own polish. Looks like fun!
