My Little Couture Box

Last week so I got my Little Box. As they announced it in July, the "Little"  is no longer a beauty box, but a "life style" box. 2 beauty products, one fashion accessory or design, and goodies.
So this month, because of Fashion Week, the theme is Couture. 
What will I find in the box? :
  • Shopping bag designed by Kanako
  • The accessory of the month will be: Peter Pan collar 
  • A book "My Little Couture Book" where we can find the story of the little black dress, a selection of designers on Etsy etc. ..
  • Coca Cola Light by Jean-Paul Gaultier (i gave to my boyfriend. I hate sodas haha)
  • NoteBook Fiat 500 Liberty (I love it, I have something like 5688 at home haha)
  • Mini-Cards to send drawn by Kanako
  • Paper cut dresses
  • Badge created by designer Miss Emma
  • foot cream , Anatomicals
  • A black pencil/Khol Vera Valenti ( This is definitely something that im getting in every box.... i have a bit stock for the year now)
  • "surprise card"  to participate to the Jean-Paul Gaultier  Fashion show (but I didnt win. only one subscriber will have this opportunity)

Conclusion: Well, I keep the subscription for now. Just to see what it's gonna be the the next few months... For now, it is not great. But it's still decent (and this is their first "lifestyle" box .. so I wait a bit)

Nail : Shade nail polish with a sponge

I wanted to try this famous thing that some girls do, with two colors of nail vanish with makeup sponges.
For this, I needed:
  • a base coat
  • nail polish white (or pearl like mine)
  • dark blue "petrol" Marionnaud
  • Kiko blue
  • a mat top coat 
  • Make up sponges (H & M)
  • a plastic film (to put the colors somewhere else than your table haha)
  • some sellotape (to protect your fingers!)
Ready? here we go!
We put the base coat and the white / pearl. 
Then protect your fingers with the sellotape.
Put your 2 colours on the plastic sheet & get ready the sponge.
then press on nails, pass several times if needed.
you can clean the mistakes on the fingers with a cotton swab with some solvent on it. Wait a bit then put the mat top coat.
Et voilà !

Which one of you has this application called Instagram ?
If you have, this might interest you .. I discovered few months ago the website "Stickygram". It connects your Instagram account and you can print off your photos on magnets! (9 magnets board. You can leave them all attached if you wish). The quality of the 9 small magnets is great and the (free) delivery is quick!
and as I am a very nice person, I'm giving you a coupon code for $ 2 off for the first order: FRIEND8ADP
