Yule Shoot Your Eye Out

By Fall Out Boy. A Christmas themed song because today was like a Christmas morning to me..

My long awaited package from Quirius arrived today!! I was suuuuper pumped to get it.. Not just for myself, but that package contains 12 polishes.. 6 for me and 6 for someone else (I cannot say for whom though, just in case!)

First, I have to talk about their packaging.. It is done up really nicely!! They are safely tucked into these little boxes that are wrapped in some serious bubble wrap encaved by packing peanuts. I fell in love with this company just at that point.

Then I finally got to the part where I was allowed to open the boxes.. Now, it says each box contains 6 polishes, yet I had 3 boxes (I will answer the mysterious box question in a bit (does anyone else chuckle at the word box? oh my immaturity strikes again!)). I checked on box two to make sure it was correct for someone, it was.. Opened my box (heh) and this is what I found..

Now for box three..

Caribbean Turquoise & Autumn Bronze


GIFTS! I had to show the stickers on top because they spelt my name correctly!! Even when I fill out documents with my name, an 'i' is always missed, or a 'j' is tossed in (true story) so this was tres exciting to me. They can get my name right but the government cannot.. I'm just tossing that out there.

The pictures in flash change the last two colours quite a bit.. Caribbean Turquoise is much darker, and Autumn Bronze looks like a dirty metallic aka not so gold.

I don't know if anyone noticed from tiny glimpses in the photos, but my nails are naked.. So there will be a polish post asap!!

Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday, I know I am!!

I don't have any of this brand. There's many I would love to have! Pretty colors you picked out. One with my name also. I'll have to get that one sometime. I just bought Zoya's polish with my name. It looks like skim milk to me. I'll have to try it on. I'm not too much a fan of white polish. I can always use it to layer other polish. Hurry up and swatch. That's really nice that you get extra polish for free!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).

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!
