The Dotted Ribbon

Sorry, just have time for a quick post. Feels like forever since I used a song title for my post. AND answered comments. I promise (for real this time!) that I will catch up on all the stuff next time.

I was super pumped to show off this look, but upon closer inspection of the pictures (and after getting a couple hours of sleep instead of being up for 40 some hours..) I am disappointed by all the black dot 'dragging'. I really need a new black nail art pen, BUT, the brand that I like hasn't been restocked in a loooong time at CosmoProf, makes me extremely worried. Plus I cannot find them online. Scary!!

Anyways, another mani that looks better in real life (and from a bit of a distance) I still like it. Every time I glance down, I am reminded of something but can never bring to words what it is that I am reminded of. Grr!

The base colour is OPI Dim Sum Plum, which, of course, didn't photograph as it should. It is truly an amazing shade. I cannot believe I waited so long to test it out.


Gah! Silly black!! Ruined it.. Ahh well, I still like it.. OH! And, I have come across so many nail art magazine downloads.. It is scary. I am going to try and post one at least once a week (maybe twice once I get going) See, I want to change my polish everyday, but I already get strange glances from the two times I do it a week. Oh well, that is just something I will have to deal with!

I will shuddup now! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday.. And I will talk to you all soon with a proper post!!

P.S - I snipped my nails down a smidgen.. I decided to snip them before one of them got caught on something ridiculous and ripped off down to the quick. I know, genius!

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.
