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!!

How did you manage to shop for over six hours without getting polish? I have to physically avoid the nail polish aisle(there is half an aisle dedicated soley to NP) to not buy any!

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).
