FOTD with Flamingo Pastel Hair, NYX India, Etude House Palette

I already reviewed new gorgeous palette from Etude House Rose collection here.
Now it's time to show it in practise- I used Blossom, Petal, Gloomy and Poison
It's a perfect fall palette and goes well with my new hair color.
I also used infamous Nyx Black Label India lipstick which is a gorgeous light peachy shade and a touch of pink lipgloss.

Since I love playing with pastel colors on my hair I wanted to try bright flamingo peachy-pink hair.
So I bravely mixed up Directions Hair Color in Carnation Pink and Apricot (name tells a 1000 words).
I was quite generous with color amount...yet I got out only a pastel version of flamingo color.
I think I reached the highest level of tolerance for blond hair- it does stain instantly but you can't get rich longlasting pigment into bleached hair. 

I like my new hair color yet I hate it. 
Looks somehow cheap and brassy yet goes well with my skintone.
I think I'll give it another go after I finally visit my hairdresser- roots just don't make my life easier.
I'm curious how will I transfer back to silver.
What do you think?

  8. I didn't realize that you have naturally dark hair! I do too, but my natural color literally looks like poo! I love the chestnut brown strips you put in your hair last Fall, I want to go dye my hair that color now! I seriously cannot get over how gorgeous you are! <3

  14. I love your hair! I think it's a nice soft pink, a good change from the harsh icy pastels or neons that a lot of people go for and it definitely suits you very nicely :)

  17. Back when I had colourful I did a lot of experimenting to get the perfect shade of pastel pink, I mixed a little bit of hot pink with a bit of purple shampoo (and conditioner of course) and the colour came out beautifully, very soft and pastel pink without any brassy tones. If you haven't got a toning shampoo then a little bit of purple dye worked for me too. Maybe that will help improve the shade you want? ^_^
