Slow Life

By Gizzly Bears (featuring Victoria Legend - at least on my version..) Yes, a soundtrack song. From 'New Moon'. I think it fits today kind of nicely. Slow, mellow, etc. Because, when I look out the window, it is gray, snowy, windy, rainy, disgusty.. Blah.


This is all I have to offer photo-wise for today. Nothing super great. Pretty basic actually.. I will try to do something more fun next time. The weather has been le suck, so I haven't been too amped up about anything lately. But, I do plan to have awesome nails for awhile after this.. I am working a bunch of shifts up front, so I want to have snazzy nails. That is the plan.. Now let's see if I can execute it.

I actually have to venture out into the storm today.. Although I just wanted to curl up with my book (The Girl Who Played With Fire), eat some Chinese food later (my sister's birthday supper choice, yum!), have some cake, and sleep. But nooo, the animals need some more sacks of food.. And I need a new headset. GRRR! When you cannot yell at incompetent gamers.. Things are not well! Anyways..

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…

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!
