The Reader Challenge + A Quick Look


Reader Challenge.. I can hear a you all asking ‘what is the reader challenge?’.. Well, I am not so sure it is a challenge, but more so for some reader input!

The Challenge is for my lovely readers out there (yes, you!). Have you ever come across a nail art image that you are too scared to try/just don’t know how to go about doing it? WELL! I will try it out for you. I can post up tutorial pictures of how I went about doing it so that you can either just see it done (to the best of my ability) or learn some easy routes to trying it out yourself.

I don’t believe in difficult methods. I think things should be simple yet effective. In my perfect world (aka my mind) I feel being ‘challenged’ at least once a week would be great, but I’ll settle for every once in awhile. I will leave this challenge up on the side bar so that it will always be a constant reminder.

There are a couple of ways to go about this. First, you either have to send me a photo of your idea or just explain it and I will draw it out and double check to make sure it is what you were thinking of. Second, sending your idea and or picture to me – it can be done via e-mail (delaynee88@hotmail.com) or just leave it as a comment and I will get to it.

I am not sure what the response will be on this, but I was working on my nails last night while gaming and figured I would issue this ‘challenge’ and see if anyone would take me up on it.

I don’t care how difficult it is.. I will post the photos up even when I fail – I am trying to have no shame!!

I think it could be a lot of fun.. So please, any crazy/fun/silly/pretty/ugly nail art designs you have come across.. Challenge meeee!! I have a lot of images myself, but I’d like to see what others can come up for me to try.

Thankies for your time!


Now for some quick looks.. My mom had asked me if I would paint her nails for her.. So of course I did! It is like a sickness.. I will people to ask me to do their nails! She said I could do whatever with whatever colours.. But the last time she said that and I tried to use red, well, it didn't happen. Using CG II, Orly Glam Rock, Black SilkLine and my trusty bobby pin..





She is really happy with them and so am I. It allowed me to practice 'cheetah print'. Then, since painting her nails again reminded me of the red nail polish debacle, I decided to use red on myself. I used Essie Lollipop, OPI Alpine Snow, Black SilkLine and my trusty bobby pin..




The bows are not too impressive.. Anyways.. There was my quick (massive) update!
 
Enjoy the rest of your magnificent Monday!!

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!

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…
