Pink Cheetah Fail

One of these days I swear I am going to master cheetah-print-esque nails on myself. Sadly today is not that day.


Sooo, this will be my last entry for a little while.. I go in for surgery on Monday and will be in the hospital until Thursday.. Once I am released I get to travel back home (about 2 and a half hours) and prepare for my 6 week recovery. Bleh.

That is why I haven't been posting anything this week. I have just been relaxing, making sure I get everything in order for at least next week as I am not sure how everything will turn out.. I had to travel today and go for my pre-assessment appointment.. Went over things to expect AND I got to meet the man that will be making me go to sleep for a bit.. Pretty intense. Then had to have MORE blood work done.. So my hand will be nice and zombie like tomorrow.. And on top of all that.. I have been on my liquid surgery prep diet for 13 days now.. So I am excruciatingly tired.

Anyways, enough of my whining! I should go and rest. Last day of work tomorrow. Then traveling on Sunday.. Surgery at 8am on Monday.. phew!!

Oh.. And like I have been telling everyone that isn't immediate family or a very close friend: do not worry about the surgery I am having. Just know that it is happening.. I don't really wish to discuss a bunch o' details about it.. That is all!

I hope everyone has an amazing week!!

P.S - Since I was in Regina today.. I made a quick stop in at the Dollar Giant as Deez Nailz mentions these polishes by the brand Billie that she always gets there.. I was all pumped because her photos show these lovely displays of the polish.. Yeah.. The Dollar Giant in Regina looks like a bomb went off in that area. There was ONE single bottle of this milky coloured Billie polish.. But I didn't even bother with it as it was half empty. Sigh.

Your Comments Answered
  • KarenD - Thank you.. I figure that it lasts long enough for me to take photos and I don't have to mess around with glues.. Simplicity is usually my friend! And thank you.. They are not as good as the webs I did at Halloween, but I tried!!
  • Meeka - It was such a tough book to get through! I really did think it would be a quick and easy read as the book is quite small, but no. I write down all the books I read, as well as start and finish dates. I started it sometime in April and just finished it up now.. I mean.. I read other books in the mean time, I just lost serious interest in the book. She isn't a great writer to begin with, but that was basically garbage!! And YES! You got it! Haha, I love that you changed the lyrics in your mind as well (:
  • shortnails - You totally should.. It is beneficial when you just don't want to paint your own nails/you already have something done. And yes! HT IN CANADA! I had been told it wasn't coming here either, so I had a swap sort of set up.. But running across it in the store was like a dream! You'll have to keep your eyes open for that gem!! Well, the liquid diet is for my surgery prep.. It is just this protein drink.. It isn't horrible.. But what I wouldn't do for real food at this point in time I tell ya!!

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
