Haulage

Yes, a quickie 'haul' post. My co-worker that is also a hairdresser loaned me her card for CosmoProf, so of course I took advantage of that!

I didn't take as much as I wanted (which is probably a good thing..) But I did get a few things.. Take a look!

Couple of empty bottles (Only .75!! How could I not?!) Because I have been wanting to try frankening.. I would have bought more, but they only had the 2 (sadface). Then CG Fairy Dust, which I have seen a few times layered over polishes (over black looks UH-MAY-ZING!), CG In The Lime Light (Neon).. Um, it is green! And neon, perfect! And they only had CG Matte Magic in mini bottles, so I figured I would try it out as well. 
OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender.. A super pretty lavender.. Love the colour, hate the scent.. So nailpolish is perfect for that! OPI Need Sunglasses? looks so gross in all the photos I took. It looks like a soupy orange-tinged mess, but looking at it right now as I post, it looks like a brilliant yellow!! And OPI Shorts Story.. I love this pink, I am not sure why I didn't buy a full size bottle a long time ago!! And, that bottle of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat was in the sale bin! I know I just bought one a month or three ago, but this was on sale! Way cheaper than at the other store... I can justify any purchase!!

The one thing I didn't pick up, but should have, was a replacement bottle of OPI No Room For The Blues.. I have to thin it out on every use now and I just adore that blue. Next time. I didn't invite my best pal co-worker with me this time because I had other stops to make, but she told me she will want to make a trip soon, so that will work out for me.

I always get nervous when I go up to the till with the card.. Thinking they are going to question me.. But luckily I still had my awesome nails done (they made it through the whole weekend, no chips! Work didn't ruin my nails for once!!) so they were too awestruck by my nails.. And then I can make up stories. A win for everyone!!

Hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday!!

you are the luckiest friend ever. I wish I had an cosmo. friend.


will you do swatches for fairy dust? I would love to see what you come up with for layering it on other colors.

hello hello!

Can you please swatch fairy dust over purple with a purpose,any black, and over china glaze OMG?


does fairy dust make things suddenly appear holographic like...it rainbowish?

you know how holos at certain angles they seem dull but other angles they are gorgeous. Versus glitters (i.e. atlantis) any angle you see a rainbow in it. So I was wondering if you add fairy dust to OMG would it make it rainbowish/ holo at every angle.


thanks a ton. I'm debating if fairy dust is worth buying. i've been a bit disappointed with the holos, i keep expecting more from them. like holographic at every angle

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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!

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).
