FOTD, NOTD - Smokey Black and Pale Lilac

Sometimes I think I am a good example of the "Green Frog" character.
What am I talking about? ;p
"Green Frog (aka 청개구리)" is the beloved(?) character from a Korean folktale, and it is commonly used to refer someone who does everything opposite. The folktale itself is usually told to teach lessons for kids to listen to their parents. lol
(I found a modern version of this folktale on amazon for those who are curious. ;) )

So obviously, I was rocking the vampy wintry nail polishes when it was so sunny and almost summer like, and now I HAVE to wear super pale pastel shades as soon as the weather returns to normal (meaning cold and windy). ;-/

Revlon Lilac Pastelle

I love love this color and I remember I hunted six different drugstores down to find it with it's matching lip gloss back in 2010 spring. (Now that's what I call passion!)
This is one of those shades. 
It is so perfectly pretty it makes my imperfect human hands look ugly.
(I still love it!)

While I was pulling this beauty out of my polish box, I found two more sisters of her, which is another proof I am a sucker for this type of color. ;)

The matching Revlon Super Lustrous lipgloss in Lilac Pastelle and the Bubble Gum lip butter are the perfect complements to this nail color.

Didn't I tell you before that they are the same shade?? ;p

See the swatches

I was inspired by Candice's recent eye makeup look, so I tried a modified version using the two darkest shades from Wet 'n' Wild Greed palette.

I paired it with green color contacts since I love the pale pink + green color combination.
