Extra Large Update + Reader Challenge!

I will try to keep the type-age about day to day life to a minimum.. I have a bunch o'photos to share. Here goes..

Here are the nail decals I made to go towards my Valentine's Day mani, buuuut.. I used them and I love the idea of making your own, but I ended up taking off the look because I absolutely hated it. It was almost 11pm the night before (I had to work at 7:15am) but I needed to have my nails painted.. So..
These gems were born. I am suuuuper sorry I didn't get a better photo of these.. I finished at about 11:30 and went straight to bed. I was quite happy with my hearts (made them with my best pal, the bobby pin!)

These were the nails I sported just before my V-Day mani.. I wanted to try out that whole toothpick deal.. I actually really liked this and could not stop looking at my nails. I love when you do a look that you cannot stop looking at. I will do with different colours and such some other day.. Plus I think I might want a base colour first.. I'm thinking red with the black and white.. We'll see!!


My new children! I have actually had this for over 10 days!!!! and never posted them.. Horrible, I know! I am still trying to think of the perfect look for JITNB and DSP.. But I decided I just HAD to try For Audrey, so here is what happened..


I am a little ticked that I put on my top coat so quickly on my left hand (re: smudging on my thumbnail) but I wanted to return to the living room and watch the rest of the hockey game.. Urgh! Ahh well.. I posted my left and right hand because this is a look where I like the right hand better.. AND! I love For Audrey on black! So excellent! Speaking of For Audrey, I think this polish was overhyped for me. I was sooo pumped to finally get my mitts on it.. And I was thinking when I slapped on this polish that time would stand still.. It didn't. I like Mint Candy Apple more. Ahh well, I am still pumped to have this gem as a part of my collection!!


I did receive a challenge! It was from Tierney and it was to try and do cupcake nails. This is what I came up with.. Is this is sort of close to what you were thinking of, I will totally post a tutorial - let me know! If not, I have one other idea..

Phew! Update complete!!

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.
