Checking Out

By She Wants Revenge. Interesting musician who some say has the same kind of sound as Depeche Mode.


Oh, um, hello! How are all of you? I cannot believe how long I have actually disappeared for. I see my last post was on December 2.. And I am still coming to terms that I haven’t posted anything in a month. That is ridiculous! If I happen to still be in some blog rolls, then thank you for that, and if not I totally understand.

I could try to explain things that were going on, but it basically comes down to me not feeling like actually doing my nails for awhile there. I would slap on a colour and that was it – if I put on any colour at all. I was in that whole zombie-mode that I had talked about once before. Then one afternoon I looked at my nails and saw how boring they were.. Then I realized that I missed doing that little extra.

I am wondering if it is just the Christmas-y time of year that I go through some sort of ‘funk’, who knows. Not to say I didn’t have a great Christmas, I totally did! My favourite Uncle was here, I rekindled a friendship, I hung out with the sibs (playing wii), I bought 2 nail polish (haha.. but seriously.. a replacement ‘Alpine Snow’ and ‘Russian Navy Suede’ – which I love by the way!!)

I was actually watching ‘Julie/Julia’ with my mom and sister on Saturday night, and while she was blogging, I realized that I missed blogging.

I am hopping that I am going to be back and just booming with activity, but we’ll see. Hopefully at least once a week for now!!

I finally charged the battery on my camera and found out I had some photos from two other looks before I took a hiatus. OH! And we also got pet Degus, I will snap some better photos of them and then tell you all about them. They are FANTASTIC!

Ok, on to the photos..








I apologize for all the chip-age. Work (in the past month especially) was a beast to my nails! I have actually noticed my nailpolish chips easier now. My sister has said the same thing about hers, even though we both use top coat. Time to change brands I spose.

I have an order from Trans-Designs being shipped out today, and I basically have my next order already made out.. Will post more about that when it arrives!

OH! Also, I have been looking at Zoya polishes more now, I want to try them out!! Does anyone know of a site that will ship to Canada that also sells Zoya polishes? I think that is about the only way I will get my mitts on them. Guh.

Have a magnificent Monday everyone!!

P.S - I will add this song to my music player a bit later. I hear the wii calling my name!!

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!
