Talking In Your Sleep

By The Romantics.. My love of 80s music comes out again!

I have had some serious trouble with typing lately.. So if there are a ton of mistakes in this bad boy, I apologize in advance!!

So, my last "manicure" only made it through one day.. I traded to work in the dishpit and ruined two nails in the process. I actually meant to post this last night but was too tired and went to sleep instead!

Inspiration picture here: http://nailart4fun.ning.com/photo/2277784:Photo:86?context=latest

Theeeeen.. I was getting ready to watch a whole bunch of episodes of 'The Guild' and decided that it would be a great time to work on my nails.. And after I scoped that photo I was like 'I love polka dots'.. I own two pairs of shoes, 2 shirts, 1 camisole, 1 bag, my makeup kit and various other articles in black and white dots.. So why not do something like that on my nails? Plus I had a managing shift and it looks some what sophisticated (I am rational.. seeee?)

And this is my take:



Photobucket
Photobucket
Left Hand
Photobucket
Right Hand


I decided to take a photo of my left hand and my right hand to show that I do the same on both ;p Although trying to snap a photo of my right hand is pretty tough.. And that is with my awesome ambidextrous-ness!

OH! OHHHH! I would also like to point out that I actually made an effort of cleaning up around the nails before posting.. I know, please pick your jaws off of the ground!

I hope everyone had an awesome Monday and is ready for a super Tuesday!

*Side Note*: I forgot to snap a photo of my bobby pin, which is what I used to make the large dots. I am forever greatful to that youtube video for showing me the way in using a bobby pin as a perfect dotting tool! <33

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!
