I'm Not Cool

By Sohodolls. I don't have a mani to show off today, so I decided I would use a song title! It has been quite some time.. (sidenote: the website that I update my blogs' music player is acting lame.. hopefully I can add the song later!)

My bestie bought me an iTunes gift card as part of my 'Get Well' package.. So of course I did a little music shopping and it recommended this song for me.. and I actually really like it!

That isn't the only shopping I have been doing.. I am not back at work til probably September.. And I did sock away a pretty good sum of $$, but really.. I shouldn't be 'shopping'.. Cannot help it! I bought the two seasons of True Blood off of ebay for $40 altogether.. AND! I put in an order at TD.. oops.

So, since I don't have anything MANI-wise to post, I figured I could post what I ordered. I will doing my nails in a bit for the PHD Challenge, so I will post that either tomorrow or Friday.. Anyways!


There are all the goodies that should be in my possession in the very near future! Yay! Oh, the little polish 'blobs' are Color Club polishes. I have never owned any, so why not now?

Anyways, that is all for now. My gross protein drink and the sims2 (I totally went back to the sims 2 after abandoning it for the sims 3.. nerd) are calling my name - talk to you all later! (:

  • susies1955 - Thank you! So far so good.. I haven't even been taking my pain meds.. I figure that is a good sign! And I will scope out the giveaway (:
  • Deez Nailz - Thank you! I hope for a quick recovery as well. I was tidying up the house earlier, and had to take a break every few moments. Very annoying! It is funny you say that.. I was telling my dad (after we left the store) that there is this blogger (you!) and she posts these amazing photos of the displays/how nice everything looks.. Maybe I will give it another go when I am in Regina again!
  • Tierney - Thankies doll! Me too!!

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!
