Post 100 (Pic Heavy-ish)

My 100th post.. I spose it isn't the most impressive milestone, but I am still pretty happy about it!!

All I really have to post about is all the goodies I have acquired lately. And by goodies, I mean polishes!!


I bought these gems before I went away for surgery.. Actually a week or two before.. I just had them hidden away in a bag.. Until now! The photo (from l to r) is OPI Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees Suede, OPI Manicure/Pedicure Papaya Pineapple Scrub (this smells amazing! I used this before I went away for surgery - cannot wait to use it again..) & a backup of CG Strong Adhesion Base Coat (seriously, I love this bade coat!!!)


I snagged these two bad boys from London Drugs last week.. Notice something with the bottle of OPI Alpine Snow? Right at the 'O', the serial number has been filed away. I *almost* put this back, but I was in desperate need for another (yes, another, this is bottle 4..) bottle.. BUT! The main reason for going to LD was to get Seche Vite  as it is the only store in my city that seems to carry that beautiful stuff. Yeah, that is my third bottle. Technically I am working on bottle 1 and 2, but it will never hurt to have another backup.. Right?


Last, but not least, is my TD order. It showed up on Friday - YAY! 2/4 deliveries of my recent online shopping spree are here - glad this was one of them!! From l to r we have: Orly Viridian Vinyl, Orly Purple Pleather, CG Ingrid, CG First Class Ticket, CG Midnight Mission, CC High Society, CC Warhol, CC Mrs. Robinson & CC Twiggie (not pictured is the large bottle of lotion I also ordered)


And this is what my nails currently look like. I had about 30 mins to do my nails before running out and doing errands.. So of course I had to attempt to do something to my nails. I couldn't resist Twiggie's calls!! I am none to pleased with my mani-action, but that is ok! It was just something to cover my nails for a day or three.

I will also post up what WOULD have been my PHD challenge entry had I remembered to actually try to somehow photograph them. I am sad that I couldn't figure out a way - I kind of adore them. PLUS they made me make a FRANKEN POLISH!! I will probably get that post ready for Monday or something.

For now, I have to finish off this 1/2c of Peanut Butter Chocolate Explosion protein drink (even with this bad boy, my protein intake for the day will be too low.. GRR!! I don't want my hair to fall out!!) and then most likely pass out with my book. I am eh so sleepy lately!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!

  • jaljen - Thankies! I am glad you agree (:
  • Tierney - He is my adorable little fellow! He is so ridiculous now.. We discovered he LOVES sunflower seeds, so.. I would give him one to shell and while he was working on that one, I would shell another for him.. I bought a HUGE unsalted shelled bag last night.. He basically runs to his bars anytime someone comes down and begs for a sunflower seed!!
  • Niki* - Thankies! I love him!! And the nails aren't too shabby either (:
  • Pretty - Thank yoooou (:

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!
