I'm On A Boat

By The Lonely Island feat. T-Pain. Wow.. I just opened iTunes so I could click the play button to see what my title would be.. And it chose this. The reason for the wow? My nails are blue.. Blue.. Water.. Haha.. Ugh! I have been up since 8am.

Yesterday after I finished posting, I decided to remove my last look because it was so badly chipped and basically illegal. As I was removing the polish, I was looking at some of my nails.. They have some splits on the sides and one of them had this weird break that basically made it look like rolling hills. Anyways, I got crazy with the clippers. Goodbye nails! New Year, fresh start? Right? Yeah, I'm going to go with that.

I am not overly impressed with my work here, but I am so happy to be back in the nail painting saddle again. It feels better. I feel better! FINALLY! I think I can hear a hallelujah choir behind me.

Photo time!









And, because my nail paintage wasn't the greatest, I will toss in two photos to up the 'cuteness' factor on here.




These are our new pets - they are degus and their names are Bennie (bottom) & Jet (top). They are lovely little creatures. My mother, sister and myself stopped into this petstore one night.. just to look around.. And we saw these two. We instantly fell in love, but we didn't really need any new pets. After we got back into the car, we all looked at each and pulled back up to the entrance of the store. It was well after 9pm, so they were closed and the employees were all going home, but we told them we would be back. It had to be these brothers, or none. We found a cage, bought a bunch of treats/supplies, and got them. Coming up with names was the hardest part.. Then we were up with them.. And I said 'What about Bennie and Jet?' - they work perfectly - except Bennie is like a Jet and Jet is more calm like a Bennie. Phew, enough story hey? Oh, just one more thing. I am sad that Bennie is missing some of his tail (his mother probably got a hold of it when he was a baby) but at least we can tell them apart!!

Oh, and something new! I decided that since you lovelies take the time to comment, that I should take the time to acknowledge you.. You're all the reason I came back. Thank you all.




  • gildedangel - Thank you! I agree with you, the first one in that post was my fave as well!!
  • Lucy - Thank you doll - it is great to be back!! My skin has been pretty brutal, even my prescribed 'lotion' isn't working. I actually tried some Aveeno lotion again the other night, and my hands are hand-model quality.. Well.. almost. heh. AND! You'll have to let me know what you got in your order!!
  • Doo - Thank you - that one is my fave as well! I am glad you like that polish - it is amazing! I decided to order one other suede (or it might have been two..) but I really like them!!
  • Skye - Thankies (:

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…

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!
