Pink Zebra And More

Ok, so first.. I will post a pic of my latest nail creation. It actually wasn’t thought up by me rather than by this gal on youtube (she has awesome videos!) You can check out the inspiration by clicking on this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfdERmAX7Q4&feature=channel_page

I need to find a new way to pose my hands – very unflattering! Haha.

Theeeen, this morning I woke up to a package waiting for moi! It was my order from Trans Design, Inc. I was quite happy with how fast it got here!! My only mistake in this order was OPI A Grape Fit! I already had the mini size and wanted to get a full size. Of course I ordered the mini size. Oh well, I am going to the beauty supplier on Friday and can get all the OPI greatness that I want.

Anyways, the order included:
OPI A Grape Fit
CG Custom Kicks
CG B-Girlz
CG Breakin’
CG Adore
CG Pink Voltage
CG Golden Opportunity
CG OMG
Orly Glitz
Orly Mini-Tiki Time 4-pack (which includes Teeny Bikini, Calypso Breeze, Sol Cabana & Mint Mojito)

I have read some good things about Orly, so hopefully I will like it as well. I quite enjoyed ordering from Trans Design - will have to do so again soon!!

I will have to snap a photo or two once the battery for the camera is done charging. Time to play with some nail polish!!

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).

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…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

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