Stripper

By Soho Dolls.. I am not entirely sure why I enjoy this song so much.. But I do! Maybe because the female singer is almost monotone? Who knows! Oh, plus it ties in to my love of soundtracks.. It is from Gossip Girl and it is on the OMFGG Vol. 1 album. If you're interested, check the music player off to the side there.

I am going to keep this post to a minimal.. I am currently trying to nurse myself back to health. I have some doozy of a cold. Bleh. BUT, I just wanted to say that my transdesign order arrived! Yay!


Essie: Lollipop & Mint Candy Apple; OPI You Don't Know Jacques! Suede; ORLY: Mirror, Mirror, Glam Rock, Iron Butterfly & Solid Gold; CG: Doll House & Solar Flare.

I know these are all polishes that have probably been posted to death, but I am quite pleased with my random order (:

My mom grabbed Doll House and was like 'this will be a expletive to get get off..' and then brushes some onto her thumbnail and 'oooooh'ed'. I am pumped to try them all out.. I did get to test out Mint Candy Apple. I had wanted to get away from showing you all my chipped nail polish action, but I decided to show you all this one because I had a nail accident at work and this happens to be the only picture that sort of shows it off..




Ok, I circled the 'accident' in pink there.. When I work managing shifts, you're in charge of laundry for that part of the shift (normally about 3 loads..) The housekeeping staff was a bit behind during the day, so I figured I would be super helpful and do an extra load or two.. WELL.. When I was putting rags and such into the washer, one of the snaps from the mop cloths grabbed a hold of my nail.. And tore it. It looks like a polish chip, but I am actually missing a chunk of nail. There is a definite ridge. It took a layer or three.. Not too impressed.

I am going to try filing it down and I am going to use CG Liquid Leather and CG Doll House and hide it for a few days. Sigh.






  • gildedangel - Thannnnk you.. I am looking forward to getting my mitts in on all of that stuff as well. Once I am feeling better and can actually sit and play I will be happy!!
  • Velvet - Thanks doll. She is still holding on. It makes me feel bad.. BUT! She is being enticed to eat with her favourites (bananas, Ritz crackers, apples and nibs). I am looking forward to getting to play with all of that stuff as well!!

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).

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!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
