Stepping Stone

By Duffy. Sigh.. The way she sings this song is just so pretty! I know some people say her voice is too annoying to listen to repeatedly, but I really like it..

Gah.. Who blogs at 4:10am? Stupid insomnia.

Sooo.. A girlie that I work with asked me when I was painting my nails again.. And I said within my few days off.. And I asked her what colours I should use.. She picked blue - wanted something with two shades of blue. Done.

I actually found a youtube video for this look.. But I changed it up a bit because I wanted it to be different. BUT! I did - you know what.. Scope the photo of what I used first:

P.S - Sorry I always snap photos before cleanup.. So yucky!!


The dots were made with a bobby pin! How neato is that? I kind of like youtube and all the little tips and tricks I find! I was going to order some of those dotting/marbelizing tools.. But for now this works. I am trying to be good and pay off some stuff before going back to school.. When all I want to do is spend money on nail polish and makeup.. and books! UGH! /endrant

Well.. I spose I should get some shut eye before shopping tomorrow.. err.. today!

Oh.. And just a quick snap of my make up from the evening.. I liked it.. I mean, considering I haven't been doing my make up too often anymore.. But anyways!

Love the manicure! Very cute and I love the blue. I love Duffy's voice. It's nice to hear a more unusual voice. I can't stand the Brittany type voices. Makes me want to scream! I don't like that genre of music anyway. I'm sure there are plenty of people up with you at 4AM. I'm up any time day or night. I'm glad I have a computer to fill my time.

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).
