Sailor Moon's Miracle Romance Cosmetics

In celebration of Sailor Moon's 20th anniversary, Bandai is releasing various Sailor Moon inspired cosmetics.
First to be released was a reproduction of Sailor Moon's transformation compact. It appears to come on a golden chain so it can be worn as a necklace.
Even the pressed powder inside is reproducing the inner design shown in the anime.
 The second part which hasn't gotten quite as much media attention is a nail polish set recreating the colors shown in the transformation sequences. I understand that it's not as recognizable in practice, but personally I would find it more useful.
The individual bottles are super cute, so I'd probably end up trying to recreate the colors and refill them if they ran out.

If you can read Japanese, you can find more information here, and the bottom of the page has links to other anime inspired cosmetic lines.

back to painting my nails

I got like, super duper tired of having long-ish nails because they chip a ton so I decided to cut them short and paint them because why not.
This time's it's Tiger and Bunny, my current obsession:

These pictures were taken before I cleaned them up around the edges and did topcoat, because after that I always forget. You would be surprised by how many times I've done geeky nails and forgotten to take a picture until they're chipped and not pretty anymore.

Outfit of the day (from a week ago)

So, a while ago I ordered a super cute pair of tights with ghost pokemon on them and they arrived soon after I moved home. I finally got a chance to wear them after I finished Otome week and decided on an outfit to wear them with.
pretty plain but still cute. Black and white is totally a thing when it comes to my wardrobe.

The tights look a bit faded when worn, but what to do, you know?
By the end of the day, the tights relaxed a bit and the pokemon now lay just above the knee. I was afraid that the design might end up too high up my legs to wear a skirt with them. It made me super happy that this skirt ended up being the perfect length to go with the length of the design.
If you want to get a pair of these tights, check in at BatCactus periodically. Sadly Siren doesn't have anything currently up because she's been busy, but she will probably start selling them again.
