Color Accent

Here are is my Color (I seriously want a 'u' in there!!) Accent entry for the PHD Challenge

I actually liked what I did. I can honestly say they looked better irl, but oh well! I wanted to wear the look for a few days, but for some reason my one and only grey polish seems to be missing!! Grr!! We (being my sister and I) know that she used it last.. And we literally looked everywhere. I am not impressed. 1 - it is a perfect grey to me and 2 - it is Orly.. that brand is not readily available to me.. I have to order it in. Guh. So not impressed.

For this look, I used OPI Alpine Snow (will need a third/fourth backup asap), CG Liquid Leather & CG In The Lime Light. I also mixed Alpine Snow and Liquid Leather for the grey. I was going to keep mixing so I could paint up my other hand.. But I didn't want to use a bottle to mix, so it dries super quickly!!


Like I have been saying in my past few posts, I had surgery.. And I'm sort of starting to bounce back.. But I feel so different.. In a good way! Anyways, this part is going to be about friends. I seriously think I might have the greatest friends ever. They have been texting me like crazy to keep me company and dropping in for visits.. But, they also have brought me gifts. My parents are like 'they don't have to do this! tell them!' - my family has always been like that. Of course I tell them that gifts are not necessary, but you know the thing with gifts.. They are kind of nice to receive (:

(not pictured: a book called 'Little Bee', some amazing peach scented body wash and the iTunes gift card)

Ok, the little key chain and lip gloss are actually from my besties trip to France (for the Cannes film fest). The lip gloss is called 'Mood Swing', and apparently the different shades are activated by your emotions (aka your body heat).. So, according to the side, I always in the zones of 'Dirty Thoughts', 'Hot & Bothered' and 'Bask In The Afterglow'. Gosh dang body temp! Makes me seem sort of pervy.. (;

The key chain is also adorable, the container she came in reads 'Kimmi Junior' and she is Daisy.. My friend bought her because she has red hair and I enjoy dabbling in the redhead family hair pool!

She is the one that also bought me that little Zhu Zhu pet hamster. His name is Tex and Bennie (the lovely pet degu) is not too fond of him as he squawks back! She loved the little hamster so much she went out and bought one for her cat to play with. Adorable!

Then, one of my other close friends stopped in last night. First off, the bag she put my gifts in was white with black polka dots - I obviously loved it already!! She bought me an intriguing book called 'Little Bee' - seriously, there is basically no description (she even looked online, same thing) so that amazes me! I cannot wait to start reading it!! She also bought me this amazing peach body wash.. It smells like fuzzy peach candies.. And a really gorgeous candle (pictured above) the casing is so cute and it smells like fresh laundry.. I was burning it for a bit last night.. I plan on doing my nails pretty soon here.. So I will be smelling fresh laundry instead of nail polish!

I am in no way bragging about these gems, I am just really happy about them all! Plus, if my friends ever stumble over this blog, they will know (even more so) how much I appreciate them! They are the best!!

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday! I have to do my nails and go see my doctor.. I have a fairly busy day.. For me.. As of late!

Later (:

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
