Paper Planes

By M.I.A.. I really did like this song, but I liked it before it was SUPER popular and used on the Pineapple Express trailer and then used on a bunch of other things. Ahh well!

ANYWAYS! It is good to be back and have an update for all of you! I think I mentioned before about my crazy sleeping and just lethargic behaviour.. I was finally starting to feel normal, then something happened on Tuesday, and I went back into a serious funk. I am tired of being tired. Life sucks, blahblahblah, etc, etc, cry me a river eh?!

Last night (Thursday) as I was happily watching Big Brother.. I was like 'I should do my nails!' and I did. I also have to say.. I haven't snipped my nails in approximately two weeks, and the growth is AWESOME! Annnd.. this is nailage where I actually would say my right hand > my left hand. Scope the photos..

And I made a mistake on the ring finger.. Well, no one *really* notices it until I point it out. Are any of you bad compliment takers as well? Anytime someone compliments me on anything, I will always point out a flaw. I can never just be like 'awe, thanks so much!'.. Well, in real life anyways. Guh.

I really like this hand (my right) better on this design. I have no idea what I was going for.. I just grabbed my black SilkLine and went to town. I figure this is what my mind is seeing lately. Gibberish! Oh.. And I'm wearing Orly Teeny Bikini, which is a gorgeous colour all on its own. Plus I can tell people I am sporting a teeny bikini.. heh.

When I got to work this afternoon, the admin assistant told me my Avon order was in. YAY! I ordered a bent eyeliner brush (I have been oogling these bad boys for a long time now!)

But I didn't want to *just* order the brush.. So I ordered a satin gel liner as well. I own MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, so I decided to go with a brown.. More day time appropriate. The colour name is Brown Pearl. When I first opened it.. I wasn't impressed.. But then I did a swatch at work (didn't snag a photo though).. BUT!

I am not sure if you can pick it up on here.. Or if it just looks greasy.. But it is SPARKLEY! WOO! I love sparkley glittery stuffs. I just bought a Lise Watier Glitter liner in Amethyste (purple).. I also have Smokey Gold.. Anyways.. Love glitterness! I think I need more sparkley glittery polishes.. Well.. Sorry for the super update! I figure I will blog, then go pass out before work again.

Have a super weekend all!!

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!
