Headfirst Slide Into Cooperstown On A Bad Bet

By Fall Out Boy. I have been on such a FOB kick lately. I have always liked their music, but have stepped it up alot lately. To listen to this track, click play on my music player to the left and enjoy!! I have probably listened to this song 100 times within 3 days. Seriously.

Ok.. So! Last Friday was pay day, a pay day I was dreading because I had been super sick.. I had asked for $350 from my vacation pay balance so that I would have a pay cheque and be able to pay my bills and live quietly til the next PD. Well, my boss is amazing and found out I had some stored sick days (I didn't even know this!) plus I had picked up a few hours here and there.. Anyways! I walked away with a VERY nice pay cheque. What do I do when I have extra funds? I shop.

What did I want though? Well.. I wanted new jeans, so I bought a new pair of jeans that I LOVE! Plus two black long sleeve shirts, fairly plain for the most part.. but that is so that my new scarves take center stage! I have always loved the scarf look, but didn't think I could pull it off.. I can! Yay!




I bought these two beauties at a 'going out of business' sale for $5 each. I am unimpressed with how the scarf on the left photographed! It has this amazing gold threading throughout it and it is shimmery. Ahh well!

Then.. my mom wanted to go to 'Dutch Growers', which is supposed to be just a flower/plant superstore, but it is actually a supplier of Konad here (weird eh?).. so I agreed to go with.. AND! They had the OPI holiday collection.. I was super pumped and got my mitts* on Sapphire In The Snow. I also picked up my third replacement bottle of Alpine snow. Plus another scarf. Two are pictured here because the next day my sister and her friend went, and I asked her to grab this other one I was eyeing up.. Anyways!




The only thing I am disappointed about is the nailpolish price! They weren't listed, but I figured MAXIMUM $10.. No.. $12. It is waaaay cheaper for me to order polishes in. But whatever. I NEEDED these two. Hah!

I am in love with SITS - I swear it was made for me! I cannot stop looking at my nails! I had them just plain for a day.. But realized plain polish is not me.






Sapphire.. met A Grape Fit! I love them together! My two favourite purple-y polishes united? LOVE!

*I mentioned mitts up above.. My mitts that I had ordered from http://www.etsy.com/ arrived awhile back.. I LOVE THEM!!! (I am full of love lately.. huh).




They are made by iLzeDR - and let me tell you, she is amazing! I messaged her about their warmth factor because I live in a place where we can see -60C (-76F) and I want my mitts to be WARM so my hands don't freeze. She offered to make them out of wool and add liner inside. Let me tell you, these bad boys keep my hands TOASTY!! I also like the length of them! So great!

Anyways.. That is my massive update post. Have a wonderful Wednesday everyone :D

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!

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.

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
