Baby, It's You

By Smith. It is from the 'Death Proof' soundtrack.. I swear Quentin Tarantino either has the greatest music selector ever or he himself is beyond amazing. I LOVE pretty much all the soundtracks to his movies. /endfangirlrant.

Sooo yesterday was a lazy day. Technically it is my 'weekend' right now. Finally around 5pm after getting out of a reading coma, I decided that I have given my nails a lengthly rest period and wanted to paint them again. Yesterday it was all gloomy annnnd I went with a darker polish look..

It is CG Joy, which is an amazing colour all on its own, but then I decided to bust out one of the two konad plates I have.. I think this was more of a test then anything else.. I didn't know whether I wanted the flower more so on the side or filling the nail - too many decisions!!

Ahh well, I might just end up changing things tonight. It is sunny and will be sunny for the rest of the week/end!!

Then I was playing with settings on my camera (I have had it over a year, you'd think we would be well bonded.. Well, we're not!) And came up with this.. The only one that I enjoyed on this photo anyways..

Whelp, I think that is about it. Maybe I will head outside and read for a bit.. What I really want to do it dive into bed and read, but I know I will fall asleep! What a blah feeling - hope everyone else is having a swell day!

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…

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!
