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!!

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!
