Two of Hearts

By Stacey Q.. My enjoyment of soundtracks has come up a time or three.. And here it is again. This is from the Hot Rod soundtrack.. It is used for a punch-dance inspired scene that I never get bored of! A fun dancey kind of song. Visit the music player off to the side to hear it if you're interested at all!! **Edit: Apparently mixpod doesn't have the song.. Plus I might have already named one of my blogs this.. whoops!**

Sooo.. I bought (a replacement) bottle of SH Insta-Dri polish in 'Lightning' the other night.. I was getting sick of not having my go to yellow anymore..

But what to do with it? I was just going to do this cute look with alternating black and yellow nails with the yellow nails having black dots.. Then I rememberd the 'Insert-colour-name-here Insanity' looks..

A quick reminder:







Thus, my current mani was born:










I really am trying to get back into the groove.. My skills are a bit lackluster still, but I'm trying!! I will probably have to re-do them either tomorrow or Sunday evening at the latest.

The idea originally comes from a youtuber by the name of LOVE4NAILS, she posts video designs weekly, so make sure you check her out if you haven't done so already. Also, I know what I do isn't exactly like hers, but this is my take on them.. It works for me (:
For now I am going to relax and probably head to my bed to continue my reading of 'The Lovely Bones'. I spent 6 and a half hours out shopping today (I know, crazy) - want to know the CRAZIEST part though? I didn't buy any nail polish!! BAH! What is wrong with me? Oh well, my craving of nail polish should be satiated this week (Transdesign order countdown!!). Phew. Loooong day!!

I hope everyone had a FANTABULOUS (yes, I did say fantabulous) Friday and will have themselves a WARM weekend (I say warm because apparently we're going to warm up to -7C, which is about 19F.. better than this -30 business, bleh).



  • gildedangel - Thank you doll!! I adore them!! I actually bought them a new toy to play with again.. Although I keep buying them toys with bells on them which they love to ring at all hours of the night. I am not complaining though! And thank you, I don't really have a problem with short nails, I love them, I just get mellow about them sometimes because I'll have this beautiful long nails and one will break and there goes all that growing out work!!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
