Stop Crying Your Heart Out

By Oasis... Another sigh-worthy song. I absolutely love this song - I sing it quite often, haha!

This weekend has been extra awesome! Friday night the 'crew' from work decided to have a bowling night.. We didn't have as many people as usual - but we had some old favourites show up.. Plus added drama at the bowling alley - who knew eh? That all was really great, but what tops that is that one of my good friends and co-workers returned from her 3 month work stint in Victoria, BC. So happy to have her home!

It was great to spend hours with her before we went bowling, but what was even more awesome was that she was really excited to give me a gift (ok, my sister and I!).. Anyways..

SERIOUSLY! Look at these! Aren't they gorrrrgeous?! She was chuckling as I was basically drooling over them. She was at a market (apparently they have tons in Victoria, so it was either there or Seattle.. not *quite* sure) and saw these polishes and figured we would love them (and we do!) she said she spent forever choosing colours for us! Such a sweetheart!

*Side Note*: My sister and I were laughing because my camera apparently didn't like 'Passion Pink' - every photo I snapped was blurry-ish on my camera just of that polish. So now I figure it will be all 'Final Destination'ish and I will die in some freak nail polish incident when I use it. Heh. I am a dork.

I have decided to dedicate my next few polish-doings to these gems. I pulled the yellow out of the bag first, so I figure that will be the one I use first.

I am not super happy with this look, but I am not that upset by it either.. Again, forgot cleanup before photos - I will learn, I promise!

I think the consistantcy of the 'Neon Yellow' and 'Power Up' are similar.. I had to put three coats on before it stopped being too see-through.. I think with 'Power Up' I will toss on a coat of white before hand..

Also, 'Marine Life' didn't photograph properly with flash or without.. It is a darker more turqoise-ish colour.. Hopefully when I do a look with it, it will show up better.

Well, I spose I should go pass out for a bit before my shift. Two more then a few days off! And excellent movies are released on to DVD this Tuesday - YAY!

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
