Monster Mash

By Bobby 'Boris' Pickett. I have to admit, I didn't just randomly get this song. I picked it.. haha! Anytime I think of Halloween, I usually think of this tune as well. If you have never heard it before, youtube it! You're in for a fun treat!!

So.. Halloween-ish title.. Halloween nails oui? Oui!

I seriously had so much fun doing this one! Sadly, it only lasted two days while I worked in the dishpit, but oh well! My nails are naked right now.. I am fighting myself mentally to NOT paint my nails!! GUH!! There is no point in painting them until Tuesday night.. But even then I am back to doing dishes on Friday.. We'll see. I do not think I can hold out til Friday night!!

I am also really excited that a new month is just around the corner. I have plans for this lil blog here! Time for a change in layout n such. I have some other fun little things I want to add.. So yeah! Be on the lookout for that. (Of course I would pick the beginning of November to deb…

Crying Over You

By Platinum Blonde.. Ahh.. Good ol 80s tunes!!

Sorry x 85 that I have disappeared again!! Things got pretty crazy around Thanksgiving.. My favourite uncle was here.. I had to work a bunch.. Spend time with him and family.. THEN! I was scheduled to go to some appointments in another city that is about 2 and a half hours from here (it is called Regina).. My mother was supposed to come with me.. But was called in for her knee surgery on a cancellation.. Which was great, she needs this surgery, but it threw me into some crazy zombie mood.. Luckily the uncle was still here so he was able to take me to Regina because he was going that way anyways.. Phew!

I got home on Friday, which means I should have posted up a look or two.. BUT.. I spent Friday in the mediclinic with my brother.. Thursday night he took a puck to the foot while playing.. Once they were on their break between periods, he took off his skate to check out the damage and there was no way that skate was going back on. His foot wa…

Eyes On Fire

By Blue Foundation. Now, I have mentioned my love of soundtracks before. I might have mentioned my love of books and most likely my love of movies. This song actually is a tri-relationship with all of these things. Yes.. I am a guilty 'Twi-Hard'.. and this happens to be off of the Twilight movie soundtrack. AND! It is my favourite song from the soundtrack. Sigh. OK! Back to reality!!

I decided I better snap a quick photo and post this up before I go to bed because I traded to work in the dishpit tomorrow.. So that means these bad boys will be destroyed.

This is a look that I do quite often. Actually.. After my sister and I started doing designs on our nails this was my go to look when I couldn't think of anything else to do.





I used Quirius Wicked and Orly Glitz for this look.. Uusually I do it with some brighter colour then half white and black polka dots.. But.. We are into fall now, so why not toss in some autumn-esque colours oui?

Also.. Thank you all for wishing me a good…

Quirius Swatches (Pic Heavy)

I am really not one for swatching polishes, but it was asked for, so I will do it! I am super sorry to have to show some really sloppy polish applying.. Please look past that fact - PLEASE! Anyways, on to the photos..

All of the pictures are clickable to be enlarged..




3 coats; a bit streaky and dried rubbery - a white base might be beneficial here!



2 coats.



2 coats; rubbery and vnl BUT a super easy removal.



2 coats; a chocolatey purple - love it!



3 coats; rubbery and you could see all the brush strokes..



2 coats; 1 more coat would have gotten rid of the brush strokes.



3 coats; could use more as at 3 coats it felt like only 1 - super quick drying time!



3 coats; LOVE THIS COLOUR!!!


Now I am actually going to have to find some time either tonight or tomorrow to actually paint my nails. Plus I had mentioned Christmas came early.. Well, it really has! My favourite uncle is arriving here for at least a week tomorrow! WOO!

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..



Jamaican Dream, Lucy Diamond, Purple Pas…

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 o…
