Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

80s Music = love. This song is by WHAM! and is a smile enducer!

Sorry I have disappeared for a bit. I am having some strange issues with.. well.. everything. I am tired all the time (even with 12+ hours of sleep).. This happens once every few years, but usually lasts like a day or three with extreme exhaustion.. This has been going on for about two weeks. Blah. No one is here for a health update though eh! On to the nail-age.

I had been lazy in my absence.. We had a cat staying with us for just under a week, and that drives the rabbits nuts and he cannot go into the basement.. etc. I will share a photo of the cat and of the only male rabbit in the house that stands on guard as soon as the cat enters the house. Nails first though!

I followed this video tutorial.. Well, not really followed it.. I just used it for inspiration. I had done something like this years ago.. But it was fun and I got a few compliments on it.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=32GounXRksY&feature=related - check it out!Then I did this one at like.. 6am.. I couldn't sleep. I was in extreme pain, so why not paint my nails instead? Seems like a great idea to me! I saw a picture of something similar somewhere online.. So I used the colours and just went with it. They are crazy and overly dotted and I like them!



Yay cute animal photo! This is 'The Fonze' or 'Fonny' as I like to call him. He was the only male born rabbit in the family annnnd he is orange! He is on red alert when the cat arrives. He stands guard in his cage and thumps his feet constantly. Kind of annoying since my room is the other side of the basement and I can hear his thumping ALL NIGHT LONG! So I brought him out to hang out with me while I read. Then he was guarding my book, so I had to snap a photo. The only thing you cannot see is his awesome white mitt - which we lovingly refer to as his Michael Jackson mitt. So cute.




This is Rick James or RJ or even (Don) Rickles.. He is the arch nemesis of Fonny.. On his last day in the house I let him come downstairs to hang out around Fonze because all the girls were outside (there are five rabbits in total). All RJ did was sit on my computer chair and watch Fonny, so I snagged a photo.

Hopefully I'll start updating a bit more.. As soon as this whole lethargic episode ends. I seriously feel like the walking dead. Blahblahblah! I think I am going to go take off my makeup and nap.. Which by nap I mean sleep, I swear I could sleep through til morning as of right now.

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).

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!

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…
