Shiro Swatches; Dark Browns

The end is finally here!! I nearly gave me a breakdown swatching all of these eyeshadows, maybe doing them all at once wasn't such a good idea... But it has made me start using different eyeshadows, the last three days I've used shadows I've either never used before or hardly used.

Shiro Swatches; Browns, Rose Golds

Finally near the end of all my Shiro swatches, there will be one more post of my dark browns after this one. I put my rose gold colours in with my browns as I find myself picking them up even if I don't use them as they work so well as a neutral type colour for me.
When The Thrush Knocks//Mockingjay//Genius Billionaire
Bakers//Honey//Ossuary//Doge//Not A Planet

Bakers Boy and Sweet Honey are my most used browns, in fact they are the reason I ended up swatching all my shadows as I use one of them every day along with Farewell Where ever you Fare (which will be in my next post). Bakers boy is a amazing light everyday brown, everyone needs it in my opinion.

Shiro Swatches; Yellow, Orange, and Gold

Gold eyeshadow is something that I love wearing as it looks wonderful with my blue eyes, which is why I was so surprised that I owned more oranges than golds, I hardly ever wear oranges. The yellows are swatched in a terrible photo, I'm so sorry, but I didn't realise how the photos looked until they were on the laptop.

Shiro Swatches; Pinks and Purples

Quite a few of these are eyeshadows I've never even worn, yet. Little bird is a colour I think would look lovely on, why haven't I worn it? I've heard it also make a wonderful gloss colour. As always these are swatches over Rimmel Exaggerate primer, and all applied wonderfully, as do all shiro shadows I've tried.
Wildflowers//Little Bird
Destinys Princess//Chiefest of Calamities//Unforgettable
Some of the purple photgraphed blue, and I couldn't convince my camera that they were purple. and the editing of them looked terrible, So I've stuff with the blue looking photos. Smell ya Later is a lovely bright lilac colour, and Elite Four is a deep purple.

Shiro Swatches; Blues and Greens

I was going to do the greens on their own, but the I realised I have 4 blues... These swatches are done over Rimmel Exaggerate Primer. All shiro shadows are very pigmented and go on creamy and easy.
Bubblebeam//Zora Sapphire//Tardis//Rebellion
I also dont have that many teals, and all of them are pretty much the same... Why did I buy them all? Anyway they are all gorgeous even if I didn't really need to buy them all.
Farores Wind//Maiden Queen//Kraken
And now the greens! I have more than I thought I did, as I'm a person who never wears green eyeshadow. Well I haven't even worn anything other than neutrals and brown for about a year...

Shiro Eyeshadow Swatches PT.1

I have no idea how many parts it'll take to swatch all my eyeshadows, but I'll try to not do a million of them. I do plan to keep them colour co-ordinated as much as possible, but as I've got mostly browns and neutrals I won't be able to do them all in one post with it being super long. There won't be much to explain in most posts as all the Shiro shadows are all pretty pigmented and go on so easy.
Whiteout//Kaepore Gaebora//No Men Like Me//Malacath//Hypothesis
Little Brother//Gift of Mercy//That Man is Playing Galaga
The first part I've done the taupe type colours, along with the grays and blacks as I don't have many of these type of colours because I usualy stick to boring browns. Swatches are done over Rimmel exaggerate base. I've included the links to the ones that are still available.

Some Shiro Swatches

I haven't done any nail art for a few weeks now, as I still haven't got any acetone, and the nail art I want to do is all messy... I've been toying with the idea of doing swatches of my Shiro Cosmetics things for a while simply because I always use the same few things. I'm hoping that by having some swatches to see will help me use different things. Although I've got almost 100 eyeshadows by them, so it might take a while to swatch them all, with this in mind I've done all my lip things first.
Not all of the things, I've swatched here are still available. Nyan Cat, Magnets, Wormswort, and Rickrolled are no longer available. Why not Zoidberg has become one of the tinted balms and is now called It's Called Love.

Paint Splatter

I've only ever tried splatter nails once of twice before, and I just remember them going horribly wrong for some reason. I don't remember what they looked like, just that I was angry about them. So when I tried again, I was fully prepared to hate them and go on a massive ragequit, that is usually kept for watermarbling. 
Although I do love how these turned out, I wish I'd chosen a different time to do them. I am completely out of acetone atm, and I can't currently find it in any shop near me, so I had to do the clean up for these with regular nail polish remover... As you can see it didn't work too great. And I used glue around my nails to peel most of the mess off.
