Body Language

BY QUEEN!!! WOO! I have been on such a Queen kick lately.. (Probably because 'Glee' (which is an amazing show) reminded me of my love and lack of their tunes). I just love this song. And for some reason my nails remind me of the retro colours that were worn during a dance done to this song on SYTYCD. Phew.

I think picture two is the closest to the correct colouring. Everyone that catches a glimpse of these bad boys stops me to ask where I got them done.. I love peoples reactions when you tell them you do them yourself. Luckily they don't get right in and look at them. These photos and my eyes show me my mistakes.. But whatever.. They are so much fun. My sister and one of her friends wants me to recreate this look on them.

I actually got the idea from BeenaBop on youtube. I am calling them 'Tropical Zebra'.

Also.. I haven't been keeping up with make-up collections, but I saw some photos of the MAC Style Black collection and am seriously drooling over two Mineralize Shadows. I would go and try to see them irl at the MAC counter we have here, but pretty much all the time they never have what I see online. I seriously want these two badly.. But I am much too pale.. Maybe I'll buy one of them (the purpley one) and if it doesn't work out I can paw it off to the mother.. haha.. She has a darker complexion and can pull off dark looks.. Lucky so and so.

Young Punk has stolen my heart. This is hard because I told myself no ordering anything else until I pay off half of my CC bill.. URGH! Stupid obsessions!!

I hope everyone had a super awesome weekend and gets off to a great start of the week. I am going to go and try to get rid of this rink chill, woo! Hockey season!!

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!
