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!!

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
