My Three Favourite Polishes

Huh.. To narrow it down is pretty much illegal.. I will go with polishes that I own that have very little left.. Here goes..





First off I will go with OPI Alpine Snow. I am currently working on my second bottle of it. I love doing my nails half one colour half white with polka dots.. Or.. Well, I even have nail art pens in white, but I usually just use a skinny brush with Alpine Snow anyways.. I absolutely adore it.. And if you're just looking for an attention getting white for manicures, this would be it!














Next would be China Glaze Rich & Famous. I absolutely adore this pink! I originally bought the set of pinks because it was to raise funds for Breast Cancer that is something that I am absolutely terrified of. I basically started collecting polish at the time I ordered that set and was soooo happy to receive this gem! I think I have a smidge less than a half left.. And I will probably replace.. Because although I have a ton of pink polishes, none of them get the same attention from me as this one!










Last would be OPI Curry Up Don't Be Late.. I pretty much bought this shade because of the name.. Then once I wore it I was hooked! I have honestly used this shade a base so many times! I have exactly half a bottle left. I own a few others from the India collection and this one is definitely my favourite!







Well I am doing this random entry, I think I will post this 20 question deal that I snagged off of another blog. I just sort of showed up and didn't say too much about myself.. So here goes, read on if you'd like!
Q: Things you cannot leave the house without?
A: I am going to go with cell phone. I am paranoid of getting stuck somewhere.. Even though it seems that cell phones do not have service when you most need them :\

Q: Favorite brand of make-up?
A: I LOVE MAC! But I only splurge for very few items, which means I have studied them extensively! Otherwise I am a drugstore make-up queen. I swear that between my sister and I – we have tried everything the local drugstores can offer. I LOVE Maybelline eyeshadows.

Q: Favorite flower?
A: Calla Lilies.

Q: Favorite clothing store?
A: I don’t really have a favourite.. I guess where ever I can find stuff I like!

Q: Favorite perfume?
A: Allergic to 99.457% of them.

Q: Heels or Flats?
A: Flats! Or sneakers.. I love me some skateboarding shoes – they are insanely comfortable! Plus I have them in fun colours like green, purple and polka-dots!

Q: Do you make good grades?
A: Yes. Even when I would totally forget about a project and spend an hour or two whipping up a report I would still get 80s – 90s whereas some people spent weeks and would get 60s – 70s..

Q: Favorite Colors?
A: GREEN! Followed by hot pink then black and white.

Q: Do you drink energy drinks?
A: Only Monster, and only when doing a jag-bomb.. Which isn’t tooo often!

Q: Do you drink juice?
A: Sure. I love Orange, Apple, Cranberry/White Cranberry annnd Iced Tea. Oh! And Banana Coconut Fuze.

Q: Do you like swimming?
A: Sure, it is a lot of fun!

Q: Do you eat fries with a fork?
A: If it is poutine I do.

Q: Favourite moisturizer?
A: Dove.. Just a really simple one.

Q: Do you want to get married later on in life?
A: I always said absolutely not.. but now if it happens, cool, if not, awesome – I am not going to base my life on whether I got married or not. Ugh, these questions always get me all amped up and I feel like I have to give an essay!

Q: Do you get mad easily?
A: I am quicker to just smile or shrug things off, but if I do get mad, it can be dangerous!

Q: Are you into ghost hunting?
A: Naaah.

Q: Any phobias?
A: Spiders terrify me. And breast cancer.

Q: Do you bite your nails?
A: I don’t bite.. I pick.. Which is basically the same thing.. I just like my teeth too much to subject them to nail biting!

Q: Have you ever had a near death experience?
A: Not really..

Q: Do you drink coffee?
A: BARF. Absolutely not.

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!
