Urban Decay Apocalyptic Nail Set

OMG, I had the hardest time getting nice swatches of these. Bloggers, what’s your secret to taking AWESOME swatch photos? The only time I can get really great swatch photos is if I takes them outside during the day, but I always seem to forget to take them until its getting dark (and I do most of my youtube stuff at night anyways, so that doesn’t help) rawr!!

Creepy Leesha eye in the BG! boo that the best picture is a still from the video hahah :(

    I wanted to get this set but mainly because I just really like Urban Decay. They actually look like really great colors, though.

    The best tip for good swatch photos is definitely diffused natural light. If you don’t do it during the day a great option is to get an OTT light, which simulates natural light pretty well. And never use a flash. Adjusting the white balance is a great way to get accurate color too. Most cameras will just have you point it at something white and hit a button. You can adjust color afterwards too. I really like that option in Picasa, which is free online (it’s google’s image editing software). Hope that helps! :) Feel free to email me if you have questions. Love your blog and videos!

    You’ve never tried Essie polish?? I use to manage a Regis salon where they carried both OPI & Essie so I become quite the cosmetic whore if you will. If you want, I want to chit-chat with you about some cosmetics sometime!

    I use two light umbrellas to get good photos. Natural light is lovely but unreliable and I wanted my photos to look consistently good. I picked up the umbrellas, tripods and bulbs for just over $100 on eBay.
