That Time LTHP Met Sutan Amrull (aka Raja Gemini) at #TMSOrlando!!

Random post time!

  Last weekend I got to attend The Makeup Show in Orlando. That is where one of my dreams came true. I got to "meet" Sutan Amrull, of ANTM and RuPaul's Drag Race fame. He might be better known to some of you as the amazing Raja Gemini, winner of Season Three of RPDR. I got to watch this man in action and it was incredible. I also got to turn into a bumbling idiot in front of him, but who cares?!! I actually met one of my idols. I got to watch him work and the entire thing was just incredible.

Sutan and James Vincent go way back to working together at the first M.A.C counter. It was really surreal to have exposure to such incredible talent in one place.

Cult Nails Mish-Mash Nail Art for @TheMakeupShow #TMSOrlando

(**Press Samples**)
Good afternoon my loves!! 

  Today I feel slightly hungover. No, I was not out drinking last night. I don't drink, ever (more like can't)... Anywho, I was at The Makeup Show in Orlando all weekend long and it was a beauty high for the ages. If you follow me on Instagram(@L_T_H_P) you may have gotten a glimpse of the madness that was this amazing show. I will be doing a few posts dedicated to the show. There was a lot of amazing things going on, and I really want to share some of my experiences with you guys. 
 Since Cult Nails had a booth at the show I decided to do a mani that mish-mashed a ton of Cult Nails shade into one amazing manicure. I wanted to represent for Cult Nails, not only because I consider Maria a friend, but because they are a brand that calls Florida home and I think that is pretty neat. Cult Nails also produces an amazing product, they never disappoint, and they always think outside of the box in their approach to seasonal collections. For me, they are a breath of fresh- air with every new collection because all of their color are always so different from everything else that is on the market at the time. SO, yeah.. I had to pimp some Cult Nails, and this is what I did :D. This look features shades from the Dance All Night, Road Trip and All Access Collections.

I will have reviews of Road Trip and All Access up very soon! I think it would be easier to break down this look by fingernail so.. let's do this!!
-Thumb and Pinky Nails: Feedback over Dance All Night over Mayhem over Wack Slacks. This was also done on my Pinky nails and you can see just how beautiful this layering turned out. They looked like some kind of jewel. 
-Index Nail: Two Timer over All Out over Grunge. This layering created one of the coolest and most unique shades I've ever rocked! Maria didn't believe me when I told her it was all Cult Nails heehee. In the photo above I am holding All Out. You need this polish. I also did this same layering on my Ring fingernail. 
-Middle Nail: Walk of Shame over Center of Attention over Be Loco. OMG, OMG, OMG. Ok, yes, so I LOVE this. I wish I had taken a macro of this nail because it was seriously so pretty and so girly and just SPARKLY!
 For the stamped details I used Bundle Monster plate BM201 for the zig- zag pattern. For the geometric pattern I used Cheeky Plate CH13. I used Konad Black special polish for the stamps. I finished my whole look off with a coat of Wicked Fast, except for the stamped nails for which I used Seche Vite to avoid smudging the stamped designs.
 During the show I had actually accented my nails with some Nail Veils by Chronicle Stones, but I didn't manage to snap a good pic of that. So here is an "ok cell" pic. I do want to go over the Nail Veils soon. I just adore these pieces. They are so edgy and different. 
 So here is a crappy cell pic of these awesome pieces. I will have an actual post soon! Oh and I ended up accenting my index with moons in You're my Dandylion and Inglot glitter stripes. I already had quite a bit of shrinkage going on at this point ahaha. 
 You can find out more about Nail Veils by visiting their site http://nailveils.com/. The pinkie piece with the dangle is one of my faves. It makes me feel very "old school glam". Or maybe like something Effie Trinket would wear. The piece on my middle finger can be customized by adding gems to the centers of the flowers. Su, the creator can make them with genuine gemstones or you can get them blank so you can use your own stones. These, semi-precious metal pieces are re-usable which would allow you to change the gems in the Flower veil piece. If you follow celeb nail artist Pattie Yankee, she is a huge fan of Nail Veils, and even had her own custom line created for NYFW this year. 

 Below are pics of my base colors which I will be reviewing soon they are Grunge, Be Loco and Wack Slacks. It is always so much fun for me to see the transformation of my nails from canvases to completed look.

 Oh and for fun here is a sneak of the awesomeness that went down at The Makeup Show Orlando. This model was painted by the artists of the Makeup For Ever Academy. I always look forward to their booth because their demos are surreal, and their creature concepts are always beautiful and beautifully executed. This model was working the heck out of this look!! She was sparkling from head to toe.
 My outfit, which pales in comparison to the beauty standing next to me, is all Black Milk Clothing. I wore The Awesome Suit as my top sine I wanted to show off my back tattoo. The skirt is the Purple galaxy skater skirt and I am also rocking the flapper hosiery. I went with simple converses because we had to do a lot of walking, but I liked it that way. The kitty ears are by Locketship.

 This year's show was an insane amount of fun. I met so many amazing people, and I got to show of my technicolor, armored nails all day long Saturday and Sunday. It was fun to wear my crazy makeup and not get stared at and it was even more fun to discuss all this beautiful makeup and all these new innovations with people who are just as passionate about this industry as I (we) are. 

 I'm really looking forward to sharing a few more posts about this show, because it really is an amazing resource for people in the industry or people trying to get into the beauty industry. That, and it was just too much of an amazing experience not to share with you guys! They are so welcoming, and they really give you the opportunity to be exposed to some of the most amazing influences in the MUA community.

Thank you so much for stopping by today my painted beauties!! I hope you enjoyed my Cult Nails mish-mash :D.

LTHP Style! Black Milk Clothing Leggings!

Fashion! Turn to the Right!!! 

 Alright guys... first "fashion-y post".. Here we go!! I've decided to dedicate this post to one of my new-ish loves; Black Milk Clothing. 

  Ooooohhhhh Fashion!! Anywho, now that "that's out my system... It is absolutely no secret that I am obsessed with all things nylon, shiny, tight, obnoxious and awesome. Few brands cover all these bases better than, Aussie-based, Black Milk Clothing. I remember the first time I saw a picture of a pair of Black Milk leggings, I was blown away by how vibrant and just plain spectacular they were. It was a picture of, their very popular, Purple Galaxy leggings. Now, I know my style is definitely not for everyone, and I totally get that.  
 So back to BMC, I remember being all like "WHOA dem bitches are expensive" lolol... Needless to say I caved in because EVERY single photo I saw of Black Milk Clothing items was just amazing... And I HAD to find out what all the hype was about. I was done in from the second I got my first piece. Which was actually purchased for me by my amazing husband as a surprise. It was the Rainbow Galaxy dress. I was so blown away by how beautiful and colorful it was.
 I love Black Milk Clothing because in their clothing I feel confident and like I can take on the world. It may sound silly, but wearing their clothes has so boosted my confidence. As a girl who used to struggle greatly with body image; this means the world to me. They are definitely a treat, but what a treat! I mean, IDK what sorcery is in these legings... It used to be I thought everyone who wore Black Milk had/has amazing bums.... No, it is just Black Milk sorcery (though I'm sure some of these gals really do have fantastic bums :). Sorcery I tell YOU!! 

  All of these pics are phone pics :(. And if you follow me on Instagram (@L_T_H_P) you may have already seen quite a few of these photos. However, I really wanted to do an "introductory post" to what LTHP style is like ;). As I said, I want to give you guys a glimpse into more aspects of my colorful life. I don't necessarily want to discuss the outfits, I mean it is pretty clear in the pics what is going on hahaha. I guess I want to create a funky "look-book" of sorts? Who knows! I just want to have fun with these posts, be gentle haha. So, in a way I really love these pics. They are "real", they are me, and I feel they really capture a bit of my essence. A huge thank you to my amazing husband, Daniel, who always is such a good sport about taking these photos :D. We have a lot of fun doing these.

  This outfit involves a few of my favorite things. A tee with a kitteh on it, my holo Purple BMC mermaid legs and my converses. My BFF got me the tee and I think she found it at Wal Mart :D. Have fun with you wardrobe!! It is MEOW or never!!

 I also love to jump in my photos haha. For several reasons: 1. It's fun. 2. It's fun. 3. It shows the clothes in "action".  The top in this shot is from Target and my sandals from amiclubwear.com.

 You guys remember this shot right? Remember the post where I matched my nails to these leggings? That was fun... I should do it with my Purple ones too!! I think Glitter Gal Purple holo might just be the perfect shade for that! Or maybe Zoya Aurora.

 One of my first BMC purchases were their original bone legs. I just love these to bits. They are a bit big on me now, but I dont care haha. I stil love them so much. Every time I wear them I get tons of compliments. The top is from American Eagle and sandals from Ami Club Wear. I am also wearing the BMC Wet Look bandeau, but you can't really see it haha.

 And another of my favorite BMC pieces are my Hex Code leggings (these were very limited however, i think they are no longer avail.). How awesome are these!!!! The blogger nerd in me needed these the second I laid eyes on them!! They are so perfectly "me" haha. I just love that I can wear pretty much anything I want with them since they do have a full spectrum of colors on them. The tee is from Tee Fury and it features Pam from Archer. Where my Archer fans at!?? *sploosh!!* hahah
  These are just a few of my fave pairs. I do have a few more, but no real good pics of them yet lol. It feels weird typing a post not about nails or makeup haha. But it also feels really good!! I know a lot of you come here for nails and makeup, but please, for the love of all that is good, don't be mean if this post is not up your alley. I know not everyone is interested in fashion or what I am wearing, but as a girly- girl and a general human being.... It feels good to write openly about some of my other passions. And if can inspire someone to really be themselves and dress how they want, because it makes them happy... my job has been done :D. 

 Well, this has been fun but I am actually off to swatch a lot of awesome Halloween collections! Like, REALLY, AWESOME! I am so impressed with what China Glaze and Dollish Polish did for Halloween this year and I cant wait to share swatches of those! I really hope that you guys enjoyed this post though. I hope to continue doing them, even if just for myself. 

 Do any of you guys own any Black Milk Clothing pieces? Any faves?

Because Matching your Nails to your Black Milk Leggings is a Thing Now

(**China Glaze Press Sample**)
Hello darlings and happy Wednesday! 

  It is a dark, Grey and gloomy day here in (what is supposed to be) Sunny Florida. I don't know about you guys, but bad weather makes me a sad panda. I get so lazy, slow and just plain out of it. I know I can't be the only one lol. Anywho, if you follow me on Instagram (@L_T_H_P), you know of my obsession with all things Black Milk Clothing. I am simply addicted to the shiny nylon goodness. Everything they make is so unique, fun and colorful.

  I own about Seven pieces from Black Milk Clothing. Two of my favorites are my mermaid legs. I own them in Purple and Silver holo. I seriously want everything in this fabric, in all colors. I am so obsessed with anything mermaids. The "scales" are craaazy holographic. It was very hard to capture in my photos. Every time I wear my Black Milk pieces I always get so many compliments. I just adore their clothing to pieces. 
  So I really wanted to match my nails to my Silver mermaid legs, because you know, that is entirely a thing.

 I had to take this pic in weird lighting to get the holo to come out, the Sun was long gone at this pont. SO, for my mermaid nails I started with a base of China Glaze's Cosmic Dust from the Hologram collection. This is a lovely shade of light Gunmetal grey holographic awesomeness. For my mermaid scales stamp I used Red Angel stamping plate RA-111 and Konad Black special polish. I topped off my nails with some Seche Vite and called it a day. They were a perfect match to my fierce leggings.

  Here is a shot of my base color Cosmic Dust. This holo has a nice-ish formula. As it applies it looks a bit frosty and streaky, but as it dries the streaks and frost disappear and turn into holographic awesomeness. I used Three thin coats to achieve evenness and full opacity. In the photo below I had not top coated my nails yet. When added a top coat, it did mute the holo finish just a bit. Sorry about my weird-looking skin here, I had a hard time capturing the holo effect properly.

Do any of you guys own any Black Milk clothing pieces? They are seriously amazing. Oh and for shiggles, here is a pic my husband took of me last time I wore my Silver mermaid legs. I had the huge honor and fangirl moment of having Black Milk share this photo on their Facebook fanpage. That same day they had also shared one of my photos on their Instagram as well. It was so surreal having my favorite clothing line share my photos with their fans!
 Oh and for the record, there was no photoshopping done to this photo. This photo is a cellphone pic. I am naturally slim and will not make any apologies for it. People called me anorexic, a bad role model because I'm "too thin" blah blah blah.. WHATEVER. Us girls can't win.. We're too thin, we're too fat.. What is right then? Me, I'm happy with myself, I am happy with my body and I will flaunt it while I have it. My tattoo was done by tattoo artist Robbie Ludders of Sarasota, Florida.
