Shellac Nails with MAC eyeshadow blend... crazy

I have been getting my nails Shellac'd for over a year and a half now, and I can honestly say they are in the best condition they have ever been! 
I have tried everything to have nice nails in the past from acryllics to gel nails to stick on nails to just plain polish, but nothing has even come close to shellac.
My nails have become so much stronger and when the shellac comes off they are still in amazing condition considering they have been under a few layers of paint for weeks.
I get my nails done locally with a lady that has become a good friend to me over the past year, and as I walked into her home the other today I found her sat with her own nails in her UV hand dryer. I had to wait a couple of minutes to see what she was doing, but when she finally pulled her nails out I saw that she had red nails with one solitary nail painted silver with red blending from the bottom a bit like mine.

I had never seen her do anything like that before and so obviously I had to have mine done like that!
The most amazing thing was the way she did it,  after painting on my base coat and two layers of shellac I found that she hadn't used a nail product at all to create the blending colour effect, but had used a mac eyeshadow powder pot and blended it with an eyeshadow brush. She then covered my nail with top coat and put it in her UV dryer and hey presto pretty nails.
I LOVE my nails and have had so many people comment on them already and would highly reccomend anyone to try this... you wont regret it!!

First Post eeek....

So this is my first post, I'm so excited!! 
I'll start by introducing myself...
This is me... I'm Sophie, Im 22 and in my third year of my Drama Studies degree :) I love blogging and love sharing my experiences with people so I'v set up this blog mainly as a hobby for myself but also because I love reading people's blogs and hope that people will enjoy reading mine.
I thought a great way to introduce myself would be to answer the 21 introductory questions tag; so here goes!!

1. Are you named after anyone? I dont think I'm named after anyone with my first name, but I do know that my middle name 'Toni' came from my Grandad who was called 'Tony' so thats cool.

2. When was the last time you cried? I cried lastnight, Im a sucker for watching sad videos or vines that set me off, I cry about the most menial things but when it comes to times when I should cry I usually don't 

3. Do you have kids? No.

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Yeah! I think I'm a pretty odd person, but who want's to be boring and normal. I like to keep life interesting :)

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? YES! I'm the most sarcastic person ever. It's pretty bad actually, my new years resolution this year was to be less sarcastic... It didnt work out too well.

6. Will you ever bungee-jump? I'd love to, but i hate the feeling of dropping without having any control over what is happening. So I think I'd have to conquer that fear a little bit first.

7. What’s your favorite cereal? Weetabix minis Chocolate chip. YUM.

8. What’s the first thing you notice about people?Im a pretty outgoing person and always put myself out there when meeting someone new. So their reaction towards me always sticks in my mind, and I guess I always focus on whether people look me in the eye when im talking to them or not because I think eye contact says a lot about a persons confidence.

9. What is your eye colour? Hazel

10. Scary movie or happy endings? Both. I love happy endings and I get so scared at scary movies but I love the thrill. I'm a massive wimp and won't sleep afterwards but I'm always up for watching scary movies!

12. Summer or winter? Summer, My skin get's so much better in summer, I get a little eczema which always clears up in Summer and I just genuinely feel happier looking at all the blooming flowers and green grass. I do love winter too though... can't beat a bit of snow! SNOW DAYSSS

13. Computer or television? I hardly ever watch television, I don't know why but unless I plan on watching a film I will probably never watch tv, however I'm always on my computer... usually attempting to do assignments but I get distracted :)

14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home?Probably Tunisia. However I am going to New York next year for my Masters in Shakespeare ;)

19. Favorite movie? Aghhh this is difficult... P.S I love you (gotta love Gerard)

20. Do you have any siblings? Yes…I have 2 younger brothers and and older sister :)#

21. What do you want to be when you grow up? Happy. I want to work doing the things I love and have a happy family and lifestyle. I don't care about having lots of money just as long as I am happy in what I am doing :)
