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!!

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!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
