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!!

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…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
