new/updated (.vix) nails!

howdy! it’s been a while, huh? in fact, it’s been since valentine’s day since i made some new stuff if you can believe it. but i’ve got a *ton* of new things to share, so let’s just jump right in!

eight new nail packs are available — six are updated older releases && two are brand spankin’ new! and all of them can be found on my marketplace store!

the two newest sets…

french glitter is a set that matches the previous (and newly updated!) french mani/pedi set.. except this time, there’s glittery tips, oooh~!

and the fruit basket set is something i’ve wanted to do for ages now! something fun ‘n’ summery, with lots of color and glitter too! apples, oranges, watermelon, strawberries.. all the fresh, delicious fruits you can handle~

as for these older sets, all of them have been updated with maitreya && omega compatibility, as well as still having slink appliers as well, with *new* textures!

a staple nail style is up next.. lovely, simple french manicures and pedicures.. which, as i said above, match the new french glitter set!

one of my most popular sets (that is a collab between me and my good girlfriend vivienne who is featured in the ad!) is mr. panda. cute pastel tips with adorable hand drawn panda face nail art!

to go along with mr. panda, is a set called spring pastels! these are the same color palette as mr. panda, just without the panda face. awesome for slink hand users to create accent nails with!

next up.. the nails i definitely wear the most, personally, are the updated blackened tips set. i always grab for these, they are by far my number one when it comes to something easy && something cute on my fingers ‘n’ toes (and, it features my girl pumms gorgeous face in the ad!).

and lastly, two sets that go hand in hand (har har). both the pastel creams && the pastel tips sets are in the same color palettes, and are great for mixin’ and matchin’. one is a solid nail color (pastel creams) and the other is tipped with a complimentary cream color (pastel tips)~

if you’re curious, come check ’em out! ♥♥

new vix nails!

/me dusts off the cobwebs

hellooooooooo everybody!

since my new blog with my girls, current outfit, has taken over most of my bloggin’ time instead of here.. i’ve decided to convert *this* li’l slice of the interwebs into an update blog for my store, .vix!

and since you’re seein’ this, that means there’s new stuff to be had!

new (.vix) nails!

there’s *three* NEW nail sets out, as well as an updated older set — and all four include slink, maitreya & omega appliers! the older set, bright solids has been updated with new textures as well, which is awesomely exciting (to me at least, shh).

if you’d like to check ’em out, then you can find them on my marketplace store.

taste my rainbow

suggestive title is suggestive. 😉

but there’s a good reason for it!

taste my rainbow

and when i say “good”, i really mean.. naked. there is a naked reason for it.

you know, when i first started blogging in sl.. in fact, my very first fashion blog post was a rather racy outfit that included a short skirt, a see-through top && nipple pasties… but yes, when i first started blogging, i was more… free shall we say with the looks i did. and then the longer i blogged, well.. i didn’t become *conservative*, but the posts on my old fashion blog that included, say, my bare nipples are few ‘n’ far between.

lately, though? i dunno, i’m feeling more comfortable in my own skin — and yes, that means both sl && rl. i feel like i’m more apt to take a snap in the buff these days. i mean, not counting the pictures on my own flickr stream where i’m nakie, but i’m on other flickr streams in the nude. …hell, it’s more than once, even.

it’s liberating, i have to say. and i can still tell myself that it’s tasteful because i’m not doin’ anything pornographic, i’m just naked. naked in new rainbow hair ‘n’ heels and feeling fantastic, thank you very much.

who knew that new colors from one of my favorite hair designers would inspire a *nude* photo? suppose that says a lot about how my mind works!

#selfie

after we go to the bathroom, can we go smoke a cigarette?
i really need one
but first,
LET ME TAKE A SELFIE

#selfie

so i have an excuse for this particular round of vanity — i have a new skin. and if you’ve followed my blog for any amount of time, then you will know that i’ve *lived* in pink fuel‘s alyx skin pretty much since skin fair last year (which was around this time, too!). alyx just… is pretty much perfect. i loved the face, i loved the lips, i loved the makeup options, and lately.. since i’ve grown accustomed to wearing crazy colored hair, i loved the option of having a browless skin to layer colored eyebrow tattoos over.

needless to say, it had to be an *exceptional* skin imho for me to wanna change. and mochi killed me with this teaser of hew newest skin, sora that i put my beloved alyx on the back burner.

it’s eeeeeeeeeeeeverything. it is giving me LIFE. i am so in love with everything about this face, but most importantly, it’s those lovely pastel brows that i am enamored with. they’re the perfect shades && i love that they’re on the skin itself, because i can fill up all five makeup layers *so* fast if i have to wear my brows there too~

i’m rarely apologetic about my bouts of vanity, but this time? sorry, SO not sorry. i’m lovin’ my face today and i just wanna stare at it.

feel free to listen to this while you’re staring at my face, too! ;p

new couple/friend poses @ (.vix)!

hellooooooo everybody!

two posts in two days, i must be on a roll. ;p

however, i’ve got some shameless self promotion to take care of. ’cause ya see, i’ve made some *new* couples && friends poses that i’m just itchin’ to show off~

new releases @ (.vix)

the first pose, called please? (on the left!), is a.. slightly racy 😉 couples pose. well, i suppose it could be racy.. it depends on what you’re asking please for!

the second pose, called stay with me (on the right bottom), is a sweeter, intimate couple pose. park yourself right on your partner’s lap so they *have* to stay put with you, bwahah!

and lastly, the *big* group pose, called got my sisters with me (on the right top) is a reeeeeally fun one. i know from personal experience that finding larger group poses can be difficult, so i included five poseballs with this set! however, i made the poses in such a way that allows you to drop one or two or even three off the set for smaller group pics, if needed! very handy~

as always, all three poses are located on my marketplace store, just sort Age: Newest First to see them easily!

or you can hitch a ride here, to the (.vix) inworld location to test all the poses for yourself! ♥

an experimentation with color

sometimes, i like to experiment…

an experimentation with color

it could be with anything, really. experiment with makeup or different skintones or “styles” of dressing. but sometimes, it’s as simple as changing what hair color i have for the day.. and the results can be surprising.

lately, i’ve been really *loving* the sort of unnatural look that crazy colors of hair can give you. hair color has been something i’ve experimented with in the past and, for the most part, the results have always been the same. while i have no problem donning a different hue of hair (which, most of the time, feels like i’m wearing a wig!), especially when i’m trying to go for a certain look.. i always end up coming back to the bright, white-blonde that i usually have. it was more frequent when i had a strictly fashion blog, but even as recent as a few weeks ago did i experiment with my hair color && step outside my usual range. even for the blonde colors — they’re not the typical bleach blonde i wear, but darker and more golden shades.

but there’s just somethin’ i can’t shake about a good blue hair. or pink. or lavender. or teal with lime green tips. or any combo of those colors, all at once. and i think, if i ever decided i was completely 100% tired of being the lightest of blondes, that *these* kinda colors are the ones i’d go for. not black or white or ginger or brunette… but deep, rich plum and neon hot pink and yellow so bright it rivals a highlighter marker. there’s something edgy and fun and different about these sorts of hair colors && i really, really am loving how i look in them.

plus since i found these fantastic tintable eyebrows, i don’t even have to be limited by the brow colors i can find. and since my skin of choice (alyx, from pink fuel, which i have a really hard taking off, if you couldn’t tell) has an option to go brow-less, only the sky is the limit on what kinds of cray cray hair colors i could pull off.

now, mind you, all this could turn right around and bite me in the ass when tomorrow… i decide nah, i’d rather be blonde again, but! for now, i’m enjoying the different look it’s giving me. and that’s all that matters, yes?

of course, only *i* could ramble this long about hair color in second life……………………. dunno if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, really. ;p

all about family

the longer i’m in second life, the more open minded i become to other ways to experience our virtual world. there’s more to it than just shopping and posing (though you’d be hard-pressed to realize that if you read *my* blog!), and the longer i’m around other avatars… the more i realize this.

the family communnity in sl is something i’ve shied away from in the past, but that was simply because i didn’t understand it. i am still learning, but i have a better understanding now of the what and the why.. and it’s all thanks to making poses, believe it or not.

the last time i made family poses was my first *real* exposure to that side of sl.. and since then, i’ve made more friends in that community. and i cannot deny how absolutely adorable kidatars can be.. especially when they act just like you think they will && make standing on a static pose for a while to take a vendor snapshot incredibly difficult.

but! if you can wrangle them long enough, the results are pretty darned cute..

so yes, indeed, i’ve made some more family-oriented poses… this time, a round of four. one for just the kidlets, two for an adult + two kids, and one for two adults + one kid. cute, silly, cuddly, and all around sweet. i had a lot of fun making these!

all four pose sets are currently listed on my marketplace store (sort Age: Newest First to see them easily!) and of course, they’re available at the (.vix) inworld mainstore, where you can test out the poses for yourself!

cutie booty

i was pretty slow to give into the mesh body-part craze. i mean, feet.. yeah, sure, i bought those pretty fast. the default avatar feet are awful && i’d been wearing franeknfeet for a long time, so when the avatar enhancement feet from slink hit the grid, i was on them *super* quick. but the hands.. boobs.. and the azz, for some reason i was slow to jump on the bandwagon.

but the other day, the cute azz from luck inc was released… which is pretty much like the phat azz‘s li’l sister.. and i knew i had to have it.

my ass is faaaaaaaabulous. not that it wasn’t pretty fabulous before, but now? it’s *extra* fabulous. i can’t stop staring at it && i am not sorry at all.

meet victor

i decided not too long ago to make myself a new account in sl. no no, i’m not jumping ship or switching main accounts or anything like that, but just another account to dress up, basically. some new pixels, some *manly* pixels to play around with when the mood strikes me.

’cause it’s not like i don’t already do enough shopping on my own, i totally need a secondary account to go on shopping sprees with…….

/me coughs

anyway, meet victor!

little bit of cosplay

i know i’m not the only one, but i am *definitely* not immune to gacha insanity. i love them just as much as the next sl resident.. and it doesn’t matter which event it is, i will most likely find something in a gacha machine to go crazy for.

so when bff vivi && i saw some sailor scout inspired lingerie sets from tsg at an event called omgacha, we knew we had to collect them *all*. no ifs ands or buts about it — we had to have every. single. set.

we are both HUGE fans of sailor moon.. it reminds us so much of our childhood. the english, dubbed version of sailor moon came on every day on cartoon network after school and i rarely missed an airing. i was always fondest of sailor mercury && sailor jupiter, but there’s a sort of *nostalgic love* for all the inner and outer senshi. i’ve seen just about every episode, the movies, have read some of the manga — i think *obsessed* is even putting it lightly. so seeing these sets, with their butt bows and adorable sailor collars.. i think i went completely out of my mind with wanting all of them.

so, naturally, vivienne and i plugged our lindens into the machine until we did, in fact, get every last pair.. and that inspired a cosplay photoshoot that is just too awesome not to share!

moooooooon priiismmmmmmmm POWEEEEEEERR~!!!
