Poster Sale

I know.. Not a song title.. Actually, it could be, but if it is, I have never met this tune!!

I used the title 'poster sale' because I went to a poster sale this morning with my sister. The university here holds an annual poster sale.. I have never gone and neither has my sister.. And she REALLY wanted to scope it out. So I agreed to go with her.. And it was AH-MAH-ZING! I quickly snapped some photos of my purchases.. But first I will show you my nails..



I wanted to use OPI Mad As A Hatter, but wasn't entirely sure how.. So I went accent nail. This was boring to me, so I added a diagonal stripe of MAAH.. And silver tape.. The tape came off before I went to sleep last night.. I didn't even snap a photo because I was so angry. I was even angry enough to painstakingly take off the polish without using the foil method. Anyways, a new look I will put on later this afternoon. I am thinking red.. with dots.. and bows.. I have seen some new YT vids (:

Ok.. Poster pictures! I am really excited about these. My mom was like 'why would you buy a bunch of posters?' I told her they were an investment in artwork for my future home/apt/condo/etc.. Plus I told her we'd be framing them soon.. That seemed to get her to leave me alone about them!! I only bought 4.. well, it should have been 5.. But when I got up there to get my posters, they were sold out of one of the images that caught my eye the most! Grr.. Oh well.. I could probably recreate it myself whenever I feel like picking up my paintbrushes for something besides my nails. My sister bought a whooooole bunch, but I will just show mine!


This was the first poster I chose.. Now, I am not one for blatant advertising.. Nor am I the type of person to have my home littered with images supporting companies that I hardly own any of.. BUT! The lady walking in that amazing plaid skirt and jacket? LOVE! Plus it is a black and white print.


Here is the second gem I chose. I have actually seen images similar to this one.. But I needed to own it. Again, black and white with a pop of colour.. Totally my thing!


Third choice.. Umm.. The green in the background matches my walls perfectly! I was like 'eeehhhh.. I don't really need it..' and my sister was like 'it matches your walls, plus I know you want it, write it down'.. So I did. And am super happy that I did!


Anyone else notice a trend in what I like? Pops of colours! I looked at so many NYC skyline prints and posters.. And was like 'I don't really need them'.. I probably saw this one in 5 different sizes.. Then when we were waiting in line to hand in our tickets, it was displayed once again.. It was like a sign. I had to have it!

The whole morning was amazing! I am kind of disappointed in myself that I have missed out on this sale the past few years.. I have never seen so many great images on display in one place.. Unless it was a gallery. I cannot wait for next year!!

I hope everyone has a FIERCE Friday.. OH! I should be getting my polishes today.. I requested 2 colours from the new OPI collection.. And CG polish.. I am not going to announce colour names - I don't want to jinx myself!!

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…

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!
