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!!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
