No Song Title

Yes, I am being extremely lazy today! But I just wanted to do a quick post before I decide to read, do art or game.. Or nap. Yeeeah.. LAZY FRIDAY!

I went out to do a little birthday shopping (not for me.. that is next month!) but for my daaaad! But of course that means I have to do a bit of shopping for myself. After hitting up Sears, I decided to stop in at Dutch Growers.. Which I mentioned back in the day.. They are a konad supplier and after using konad (well, technically I used an Essence plate last night..) I decided to treat myself! Plus one of my friends has a birthday coming up and she told me that she likes using konad - yay! I did buy one plate for her (she likes the french tips only..) but I might have to keep it for myself.. and get her something else.. We'll see.

 
I bought plates M70 and M45.. Oh, and my camera really hates me today so I apologize for the terribad quality of photos.. I think I snapped about 20 photos of everything and just nothing was working. Blah! I also bought the double ended stamper because I like the idea of using that small side for the smaller images.. and full images for my baby sized pinky nail.
After going there it was time for a quick run to Zellers.. I actually didn't want to go to the cosmetics section because I didn't want to see nail polish.. BUT.. I went because I needed my favourite exfoliating scrub and such.. 


 
I nabbed the Art Deco nail art 'lacquers' first.. I have never tried this brand, but figured I would give them a whirl.. Plus I read somewhere that you can use them with konad? That would be super as these were $2 compared to the $7 konad polish (again, I paid through the nose for the konad stuff, so next time I will just order online!) Then, as I was leaving, I noticed these Wet n Wild polishes on the bottom rack.. And this cute little bottled colour caught my eye! It photographed lighter than it actually is.. It is like a smokey purple.. LOVE IT! It is called 'Bite the Bullet' - I cannot wait to try it!
 
My nails currently.. Kind of suuuucky, but oh well! I used OPI Sapphire in the Snow, an Essence image plate (thank you Secret Santa exchange :D) and CG Devotion. It is a cute idea, I just need to work on my stamping skillz! It will be nice to just use a stamp sometimes instead of trying to paint everything!
Once I returned home it was about 2:30.. Finally at about 3:04 I decided to check the amazon website because I was expecting a shipment today.. But figured maybe they date changed it and it would arrive Monday, nbD as long as it arrives before Thursday aka the dad's birthday.. I ordered him a DVD along with some books for myself.. Anyways, check the website..

 
Delivered? SAY WHAT! I race upstairs and my mom is on the phone to her mom.. I of course interrupt this conversation.. 'Did someone ring the bell?' 'No honey, what's up?' 'It says my package was delivered.. So weird..' 'Well, there was a dark haired guy looking around.. Yes mom, the one I told you about..'.. I open the door, look around, nothing.. Look at the mailbox - PACKAGE! Yay! Now I don't have to wait and worry about it being delivered. Plus I finally have reading material again.
Wait, didn't I say this would be a quick post? Geez! I'm done now!!

Have a fantastic Friday everyone (:

Your Comments... ANSWERED!
  • Tierney - I still have to shorten them.. Or maybe I'll just have to post them up novel style - and I really liked yours, they are all wonderful things!!
  • gildedangel - It was one of those things where I didn't really feel it until I saw it.. I knew moving that book shelf that a nail had broken, but then I saw it and it STUNG! Of course my brother was like 'you're such a girl!' but for once that actually hurt. Boys.. And thank you! It can use some work and I need to tell my sister to keep the bottles neat.. Polish all over the place!!
  • susies1995 - Thankies doll!! It was kind of nice to see all my gems face to face at the same time, haha!

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.
