The Way I Are

By Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson & D.O.E. I used to listen to this song everyday repeat x 5.. Now I still enjoy it, but in very small doses. But D.O.E's part always makes me chuckle!!

SORRY FOR THE ABSENCE!!

I don't really have an excuse other than the fact that I have been feeling tres blah and every look I have done with my nails has just been terribad. Embarrassingly so. I finally did this look and feel a sconch better about myself, haha!

I used a tutorial that JulieG713 posted HERE. I was a smidge disappointed when it was based off of a Rihanna look, but it is still amazing and I just had to copy it! JulieG posts some pretty nice nail looks. I also find that she doesn't try to confuse people when explaining things. (I have seriously watched thousands of YT videos, and some of the nail tutorials could be explained so much easier.. I understand them, but I could see someone trying to learn and just giving up all hope.. When they shouldn't! /endrant).

I think it is time for a new layout here.. I will have to work on that..

ALSO! This is pretty much breaking news.. OCTOBER IS A DAY AWAY! WOO! My favourite!! I love that October is pretty much Halloween themed through the whole month. Time to decorate, pick out pumpkin patterns, decide on a candy theme.. And of course.. nail art! Yay!!

I hope everyone had a good September, sorry I wasn't around too much this month!!

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!
