Just Quickly

Sorry I haven't been posting too often here.. I don't really have a legitimate excuse, other than the fact I am a super procrastinator. I have an out of the city doctors' appointment on Wednesday, and all the stats I have been keeping on myself are not complete. Ugh. I had planned to start (heh) them on Friday, and work on them after work during the weekend, but of course that never works out. Now I am in full panic mode!

I just need to sit down and finish it all up, should take an hour or three, just, when can I take that hour or three? Now.. After I update here of course!! And them maybe after I che- see how this happens?!

Anyways! On to the slightly more fun stuff..


I wasn't too impressed with this, except for the fact that it was SUPER bright. Lucky for my it chipped the next day and I had a good enough reason to take it all off - yay!

I slapped something else on, but didn't get a photo before I had to remove it. I have big plans for either tonight or tomorrow sometime of what I am doing to my nails, so I will try to post that before I go on Wednesday.. I mean, getting up at 5am, driving for 2+ hours, appointment, lunch etc, driving for 2+ hours = one tired Dee!!

OH! And is anyone else dying from allergies? I was so bad last week, then we had this blizzard, so they stopped (hallelujah choir pipes up..) and now, since said blizzard snow is melting, welcome back Mr. Sneeze and Mrs. Super Watery Eyes and silly runny nose. Grrr!!

I hope everyone will have a magnificent Monday - ouu.. GG tonight.. And I said I would make nanaimo bars.. I really have to finish this stuff first.

Your Comments... ANSWERED!!!

  • Tierney (Mar 25) - Thanks doll! You should try it out, it is simple and effective!! The polka dots would have been cooler if I would not have failed so hard.. Next time!!
  • Tierney (Mar 26) - I think there is actually something wrong with it to make me punch myself.. It keeps getting all swollen and such after I sleep.. And yet I have tried everything (re: cleaning pillow cases/bedding, changing makeup, cleaning everything that goes near my eyes - I even got new contact lenses! It is craziness!) I should probably get it checked out. Blergh! But thank you, at least something can look put together right now!
  • ThRiSzHa - Thank you!! It was super fun to do!
  • Tierney - Thank you for the birthday wish! It really was a great birthday! And thank you about the nails - they were lots of fun!
  • Kae - Thank you for the birthday wish!! I was really happy to find that tutorial as it was exactly what I wanted to do/what was asked of me by residents!!
  • ch3rryco1a - Haha thank you! Although, I think you have to put up with it waaay more than I do!! It only happens to me everyone couple of years, still stings though! And thank you (:

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…

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!
