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).

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!
