Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Purple on Purple

Hey everyone!

I have to apologize for stopping my Halloween posts - I had two severe nail breaks, and since then.. my nails have been an absolute nightmare. FUN! I don't mind doing nail art on short nails, but my nails are also doing this new thing where they either keep breaking or chip/peel within a few hours.

BUT! What I have been doing is going through my collection and just painting my nails. I discovered a shade the other day that I have literally had for 6 years.. never used it.. am obsessed with it.. so, I might as well share those with you for now.

Today, though, I did run by Winners and found some real steals. Two of which I am sporting on my nails.

I found a Marc Jacobs polish for $5. Five bucks.. seriously?! Zoiks! And this other gem for like.. $2.99 to use on top. Shall we?

Countdown to Halloween 2017: Cute Ghosts

Hey everyone!

Something a little less 'scary' for today.. unless you count how dry my cuticles are.. I will show myself out.

Back in 2015, I did a recreation of some nails that TinyTangereines had done.. and I went with that again.. but just full out cute ghosts. And some glam dots.. because, me.

Countdown to Halloween 2017: Gross Nails

Hey everyone!

Not sure what else to call these.. other than gross.. these are the nails I imagine some sadistic swamp-dwelling mother of mutants to have.. yeah, that.

Countdown to Halloween 2017: Blood Splatter Nails

Hey everyone!

As per the last.. few years, I have tried to do a few posts of Halloween-esque nails leading up to my favourite day of the year.

This year will be no different.

I am going to have 7 manis to share.. starting off with a classic: Blood Splatter Nails.


The real scary part of these nails is how hard red stains during clean-up.

Marble + Pink Nails

Hey everyone!

In theory, these nails were going to be amazing. And, I feel like IRL, they are.. but in the photos I took? Nope.

BUT!

I will share this one regardless, because, why not?


I also apologize for the dryness of my cuticles. Sigh.
