Happy Birthday To ME!!

Technically it is on Sunday, April 4th (aka Easter Sunday.. overshadowed by a holiday.. blast!) But no big deal, I am still super pumped!!

This evening, during supper, my sister was like 'want to open your gift from me?' - My family has never been one to wait to give gifts to each other..

I was SUPER SUPER SUPER EXCITED when I removed the tissue paper and there in front of me was..

I know, it isn't nail polish, which would have been amazing as well, but no.. It is something that I have wanted for such a long time!! I have my ipod 30G classic.. But I really wanted an ipod touch.. oh gosh, she is so pretty!! I am doing this now before I have to go setup and play with this gem!! OH! And metallic green comfort fit ibuds! woo! The buds they send with the ipod products hurt my tragus piercing.. Anyways!!

These were my nails from a couple of days ago.. Just something easy to get through my managing shifts. This was after three days of work.. Including dishes and laundry and all that fun stuff.

And now my Easter nails! I was excited to find this tutorial on youtube (BeenaBop I do believe!!) I knew I was going to do 'Easter eggs', but one of the residents requested chicks on my nails, I said we would see.. And then I saw this and it was perfect! The application, not so much.. I rushed it to game for a bit - what a nerd!!

Anways, I hope everyone has a terrific Thursday and have a Happy (Hoppy!!) Easter!! I am going to chow down on some delicious mini eggs (that will now be available all year.. I am going to have to improve on my exercise program!!) and get my new baby working!! Woo!!

I will answer all comments on my next entry, promise!!

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!
