Curry Up Don't Be Late

I seriously think that is the best name of a nail polish ever.

Sooo.. Yesterday, I did the look I had drawn out, and it just didn't work out like I thought it would. Maybe if I didn't rush it would have better, who knows! Yes.. I will post a pic of how it turned out before I actually fixed things up. I then didn't let everything dry and we all know how messy that can get.

See.. kind of blah! I will try it again someday, but take my time on it more.
I then removed it last night due to its ugliness and sat down this afternoon to do one of my favourite designs that I also get compliments on.
We shall take at look at what I used..

Sorry, I am really short, stubby, sausage like fingers.. /tear - oh well! Ohhh.. and background to doing my nails.. I just have to post this because I am such a Twilight fangirl:

Smokin' Fox right there.
Anyways.. That is how my nails look at the moment. Of course after I hit the shower later, the nail areas will be so much cleaner as always.
I am also awaiting a shipment of nail art pens. In 24 fancy colours! YAY!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

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!

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…
