Periwinkle Squares

Yes, I'm back. Two days in a row!

I think I am just super pumped because last night I actually got to put in an hour of reading.. with minor discomfort! Yes!

Oh, plus I have some photos of my little Bennie at the end - enjoy!


Here is what I used.. CG Secret Peri-Wink-Le & CG Liquid Leather. I was going to use a purple like the image does, buuuut.. I have a few untried and I really don't want them to become too many.. So CGSP it is! Also, I have been using two 'base' coats. I added OPI Matte Nail Envy into the mix because my nails are quite long right now.. And the crazy part is that they are all basically the same length.. I am just trying to avoid a nail break.. Once that happens I will clip down all my nails and start over again. Sigh. It is just nice to have these nice long nails again.

Inspiration picture..

My take...

These were actually kind of easy to do.. For the most part. A few of the 'squares' were filled in (like my pinky and ring fingers), but I just dabbed some black and tried to fix it up. Now, in the inspiration image, I do like the little gems and such they use.. But, I don't really like wearing little gems.. I find them to be impractical.

Ok, now the promised photo of Bennie. I think awhile back I said I wanted to get photos of him in his dust bath because it is amazing.. Well..
I had to toss in the last image.. He was so into his dust bath, he didn't notice his favourite non-toy: my camera. Then, mid swivel in the dust, he stopped and stared straight at me.. Then he tried to grab the camera cord. I adore him!

Whelp, that is all I have got to say for now.. I hope everyone will have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend! See you all next week (:

Excellent job. The jewels really aren't workable, I agree with you.

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).
