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 (:

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).
