Peachy Pink

I finally got around to using my CG Peachy Keen polish.. It has been sitting in my untried drawer for a few moments in time..

I started off by painting my nails with it and just figured I would decide what to do after painting it on.. And omigosh! What a colour!! I didn't think it would be so.. bright? I figured it would be a touch more brilliant than CG II, but it is totally different! I actually kind of love this polish..

Once it was dry-ish (I am not a patient person when it comes to drying time on polish), I decided try and gradient pinks.. I used this Essence gem that I got in the Elfster Secret Santa exchange.. And I notice it when I look at my nails, but it was very faint, so instead of work on the gradient effect, I just grabbed a sponge and sponged on OPI Elephantastic Pink. I actually really enjoy this subtle yet in-yo-face look! It is perfect for summer.. Now if we could only begin summer here..


Now a question.. I do believe I have reached a plateau with my cuticle cream. It just doesn't seem to be doing as well as it once did.. Here in lies the question.. What cuticle creams do you use/like/have heard good things about.. I have read quite a bit on the Lush cuticle cream.. And according to friends we actually have one here situated in a mall.. I could venture out and get it.. But of course I want to check with the polish crowd first. Lemme know!

I hope everyone is having a terrific Thursday and will continue to have a wonderful week!!

  • Tierney - Thankies doll! And I am seriously not worried about when it gets sent out.. I just know that one of these days I will have it in my possession and all will be well! I picked up a 'thing' or two for you, so hopefully I will get those gems shipped out asap as well!!
  • ThRiSzHa - Thank you (: you flatterer you (: Actually, this works out well because I always love the creations you post!!
  • shortnails - Actually, I stuck fake nails on to my nails.. Only because I knew I would be using large amounts of glitter and I did not want to cry during removal - heh! BUT! Awhile back, on a blog somewhere out there.. They posted about the 'foil method' for removing glitter polishes. You put your polish remover on cotton balls, apply said cotton balls to the nail, then wrap the fingertip in tin foil and let sit for a couple of minutes. Afterwards, you just take off the tinfoil and the polish should basically all be removed. I did use this method and it seriously works! I think there were two nails that I had to 'scrub' for a swipe or two. So much better then taking an hour to remove manually!!

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).

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!

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…
