Dee's March Favourites

I have seen a bunch of youtube videos about ‘enter month here’ favourites, so I decided that I kind of want to just incorporate that idea to this blog.. Now, I know that this is my polish endeavours, BUT! My ‘enter month here’ favourites will be about anything, be it nail polish, make up, books, etc – just whatever I was loving for the past month. I am going to try to keep up with it for a bit.. And if anyone else is interested in writing this type of entry, go for it! I will love reading them just as much I do watching them! Here goes.
Dee’s March Favourites
  1. CG Lemon Fizz.. Every time I go to do my nails, I seem to constantly be reaching for that gem, then I have to remind myself that I have other colours to use and then choose something else. For me, it is thus far, my favourite yellow!
  2. CoverGirl Clean Makeup foundation for normal skin (technically I could use oily and/or sensitive, but I went with ‘normal’, and it is perfect!) – I instantly loved the fact that it smelt like Noxzema cream (ahh.. sweet teenaged years spent with jars of that gem-like cream!) Aside from loving the smell, it has actually been working wonders on my skin! I am, of course, the lightest shade, which is Ivory 105.
  3. CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 4-Kiy Shadow in Coffee Shop. I pretty much always reach for this, but stopped for awhile because I was using my MAC shadows, but during the month of March, I used this pretty much everyday I wore makeup – specifically eyeshadow. I love it and I am going to have to replace it soon!
  4. Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in Vintage Pink.. Ok, I have never been a lipstick wearer, let alone a coloured gloss wearer, but I do love this! Funny story, my sister, my brother and myself ran into Shoppers later one evening and my sister dragged us into the makeup section.. My brother saw the Rimmel stand and the lipstick tubes (they are an amazing purple colour) – he said that I should own those because they look awesome, so I whipped mine out of my purse.. And now everytime I use it (which is whenever I go out) I think how my brother actually said I makeup item looked ‘awesome’.
  5. Spectro AcneCare Deep Pore Vanishing Lotion.. I hate the pores on my nose/surrounding area, they are huge and gross (and clogged!) I have been using this lotion for almost a month, and I can actually tell there has been a vast improvement! I am actually quite happy about it. One of the main reasons I use full makeup for my face is because of these HUGE pores, which is ironic because that will only make them worse. I want to get to the point (hopefully for summer when it is quite warm!) where I can slap on some tinted moisturizer and call it a day!
That is about all I can think of that I really turned to for the month of March on a consecutive basis. Sadly it is all beauty-related items. Maybe April will be different!
What are some of your go-to products? I would love to hear about them!!

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…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
