Casey's Song

By City & Colour. I like to think that my iTunes shuffler really seems to know me. I have been listening to tunes for the past hour and it has played more slow tempo-saddish songs for me. Because it knows how blah I feel. Dallas Green is a super talented artist.. City & Colour is his solo work, and it is really great. Have a listen!!

So this demon illness that I have has changed its course. I figured it was a sinus infection due to the fact that my head felt like it was going to explode. Now it isn't so much about my nasal area but my throat. Which worries me the most. If I get a head cold and stop it before it gets to my throat area, I'm in the clear. Fingers crossed for laryngitis or brochitis.. I am not interested in pneumonia right now.

I know I should be resting, but I was asleep for 12+ hours already. I spose I could go read.. Have a new book, yay!

Oh riiiight.. Nail polish!! Just a quick photo of a quick look that I put together so that my nails wouldn't be nekkid during work yesterday.




Yes, that is the 'broken' thumb nail.. It is lame because no matter how much SH Hard As Nails I put on, that little part is.. squishy? Mainly because it isn't really nail. Urgh! Ahh well.. This look is just CG Liquid Leather and CG Doll House. I am kind of in love with this glitter polish!! Later today I will try that aluminium foil way to take off glitter polishes.

I hope everyone is having a marvelous Monday!




  • gildedangel - It doesn't really hurt, it just sucks! I guess I will have to wait for my nail to grow out a bit then cut it so that it is all nail. The waiting game is no fun!!

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
