True Love

By Brokencyde. I found this band by a friend telling me to listen to this 'guilty pleasure' song called "Bree, Bree" by this band.. They are obnoxious/rude, crass and strange.. Which is probably why I enjoy their songs on rare occasions. Screaming is a plus.

OK! So, I said I would keep everyone updated on that Dead Sea spa care package.. I have been doing such a bad job of that. I mentioned it on July 20 and it is now August 7 (AYE! Time flies!)..

Anyways, I have been using the system faithfully everytime I have a few days off of work thus giving my nails time to breathe between polish action. I sadly haven't noticed the yellowing disappearing except for when I cut off the growth of my nails, which thankfully grow fast.

I am beginning to wonder if it wasn't nail polish that stained my nails but something else.. It is weird because sometimes I SWEAR the yellowness is gone.. Then a few hours or a day later it is back (probably just lighting.. I like to pretend to believe otherwise though!)

The reason I keep using this stuff though is that the cuticle cream is AH-MA-ZING.. Plus paired with the lotion (which somehow my super sensitive skin accepts, yay!) your hands just feel awesome!! Plus I like the buffing system on the nails, makes them smooth and polish application is just great!

Ok.. Enough blabber eh!

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…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
