Random Tip

No, not a song title.. I will save those for nail polish posts.. This post is just a random tip!

So, my mother was watching 'Oprah' the other day and Dr. Oz (I hope that is the correct name..) came on and was giving 'beauty tips'. ANYWAYS! The one my mom paid closer attention to was the one about foot care.

If you have rough skin on the bottom of your feet, or even worse, the white flakey/chalky skin (I was closer to this category, gross, I know!)

What you need to get rid of the yucky whiteness is use Oxy/Stridex/Clearasil pads (any that have the 2% salicylic acid - which is pretty much all of them..), vaseline or cocao butter and some socks.

-Start off with a clean foot (preferrably) and swip all over with the pad
-Slather on your vaseline or cocao butter
-Slap on a sock
-Repeat to other foot

I have been doing this for five days now.. And HUGE difference. I spend a lot of time on my feet/walking around, especially with work and everything else. I really never think twice about the damage done to my feet. Now that they are not rough or with all that buildup of skin - they look awesome! I am so excited and reccomend this to anyone.. Hopefully this will help someone out like it has helped me.

I was pretty much the tester in my family. Now that my mom and sister have seen the results, they are like 'oh, maybe I should try this!'

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
