Creepy Mannequin Polish

So I decided to leap upon the band wagon and test out 'mannequin' hands. The reason I bought the polish? One of my co-workers came up to me yesterday at work and was like 'the new OPI Tokyo collection is out.. you should pick up some of them' and slapped her CosmoProf card down on the table. I pretty much gasped.

Sadly, when I arrived, the collection isn't going to be available until Wednesday.. So I grabbed CG II and Liquid Leather (replacement) and a few random top coats and base coats. I was a bit underwhelmed by their selection this time. OH! And I also bought a replacement white silkline polish. I might remember to snap a photo or three later on.

When I arrived home from that venture and starting to get ready, I had about 2 hours before my friend and I were going to see a movie, (we saw Legion by the way), so of course I had to do my nails. And of course I grabbed CG II.



This actually freaked me out.. In some lights, it did look like mannequin hands. When I reached out to grab things, I seriously scared myself. So.. I added some quick detail..




It helped. My nails didn't bother me as much anymore.. I took it off when I got home. Has that ever happened to anyone before though? Actually being bothered by the polish you're wearing? Leave me a comment and let me know.. I mean, I know I am a little strange, but I cannot be THAT strange.

Oh.. And.. The other night my sister was saying she had no inspiration for her nails.. So I welcomed her to check out the bulging folder that I have of nail art ideas. She was so pleased with what she had done.. And I was happy with how excited she was. I asked her if I could snap a photo and post it on here. She said of course.



Tuxedo nails! Cute huh? She is suuuuper pumped with her work.. So those of you reading this, if you have the time, leave her a comment that I can show to her!!

I hope you all are having a magnificent Monday - welcome to February!!

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.
