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!!

Oh no! The break doesn't hurt too much does it? That mani is so pretty; it's a shame that it got ruined!

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).
