Clinique #FaceForward: Sneak Peek + Nail Art

Clinique #FaceForward
The lovely folks over at Clinique recently sent over a few new skin care products. Even though I am absolutely buried under skin care products to work through, I am super excited to try them because Clinique has been on their A game for new products. The iconic yellow lotion is now available as Dramatically Different Moisturizing Cream for more intense hydration, and there are some new masks to play with: Pore Refining Solutions Charcoal Mask, Even Better Brightening Moisture Mask, and Turnaround Revitalizing Instant Facial.

Last month, Clinique launched their #FaceForward global campaign, which celebrates passionate, daring women and their aspirations. Clinique is encouraging us to ask ourselves, if you could give your future self any advice, what would it be? and share the answers over Twitter. (Not sure what kind of lofty goals I can create for myself though, considering I'm struggling as it is just to establish regular sleeping patterns @__@) In any case, I was charmed by the cute, playful drawings on the accompanying campaign postcards. Of course that means...

Nail art time!
I took a few elements from the card and doodled on my nails while binge-watching Scandal on Netflix.

Are you getting tired of white base nails yet? Sorry, not sorry; white is the perfect base for anything and I'll never get sick of it. I used Sephora Formula X White Matter, with Layla Ceramic Effect CE84 Yellow Submarine for the stars, Clinique Pinkini for the heart, lipstick, and lips, and black liquid acrylic ink.

It's not my usual style but I really enjoyed trying it. The lips are my favourite in the set. It's probably because I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out to be recognizable as pair of lips rather than a pink monstrosity...

Woot it's Friday! What are your plans this weekend?
