[038] It's an 'Arty' Affair..

13.3.11

Another treat from YSL. Woopsie! Well I have wanted an Arty ring for ages, I was going to purchase one when I was last in Paris but I wasn't wow'd by the colours. When I saw this one it had to be mine, I am such a black and gold girl! I have to say the sizing of these rings is very odd. I ordered a size 6 which actually fits 3 of my fingers.. hmm. Weird. Anyways to celebrate my Arty ring I painted my nails Barry M black, I love black nails! On the ring fingers I added Rococo's 'Gold Leaf' the crackled effect of it goes so well with the ring. I actually took these pictures after wearing this nail polish for the last 4 days, not bad hey.

I was also playing around with my camera settings as I very rarely do (I am so lazy.. I need to start learning!) That is why these pictures all look different. I look so tired in these pics I usually take them before I go out but these were at 2 am when I got home.

I only really wanted to take pictures to show you what the YSL Rouge Volupte in 20 looks like on the lips. I love it, I wore it properly for the first time last night so the staying on power isn't great but hey ho. I didn't wear eyeliner last night (very odd for me) I just wore a smudged out smokey eye. My tan is fading and I have these white patches appearing on my face, not cool. In need of another holiday!

I have a few other posts I'm hoping to get up by the end of the day, Hope you are all having a fab weekend. The weather was so nice yesterday and well today I'm sat in my fleecey PJs looking out at grey skies, I wish summer would hurry up!

  7. You chose the perfect colour for the ring, i wish they made them in silver too because i cant really do yellow gold, and i m a bit tired of them since everyone wears them. Love the YSL lippie on you, you should check #9 in pink caress i think you will love it too.

  11. I've wanted one of these rings for ages! I love how well you matched your polish to the ring, it's a nice new twist on the match-y match-y trend.

  14. This is the first arty ring I've seen in black and ygold, I love it!! You mentioned the sizing was odd, does a 6 not usually fit on 3 of your fingers? Does it run a bit big feeling?? I've never tried them on but have been seriously looking to purchase one..

  16. I'm so in love with the nail polish - ring combination! So gorgeous! I have been lusting for this ring for quite a awhile. Dark blue stone is, in my opinion, one of the prettiest I've seen yet. :)
