Comic Talk

Hello everyone - looooong time no post. For that I do sincerely apologize! I have been doing so well after surgery that I figured that feeling of 'wellness' would just continue.

Wrong.

I hit a WALL this past.. Well, 10ish days. It has not been fun. All this amazing colour that I had (seriously, my eyes and cheeks and skin were all AMAZING looking, even without makeup) now I sort of look like a walking corpse. I would say zombie, but zombie are rad and I am not lately. I actually scared myself the other evening. I was washing my face and I swear my eyes were colourless and lifeless. I could go on and on about how terrible I have been feeling AND looking, but I'm here to discuss that.

A few posts back, Li Lian mentioned the website http://wah-nails.com/, so of course I had to check it out. They do some really fun nail art.. Most of which I find somewhat simple to replicate. I of course had to test out at least one of their designs asap.


Sorry the photo suuuucks! I really didn't want to stand around a whole bunch to try to get a decent shot. I think this particular design is a lot of fun. My sister did see some of the other photos from that site that I saved in my inspiration folder - she wants to test them out as well!! Oh, duh, the colours used are (from thumb to pinkie): OPI A Grape Fit, Essie Mint Candy Apple, CG Heli-Yum, CG Lemon Fizz & Orly BLANK because I cannot remember..

I keep meaning to post on here because I really do miss it AND all of you.. Just. So. Tired!

Anyways, just a quick update from moi! I hope everyone has had a good start to August and that it continues. I will try to post up again asap!

  • shortnails - Awe, thankies for checking up on me! I really do appreciate it! Like I said at the beginning of this post.. I felt pretty amazing for the first little bit, since then I have basically fallen apart. I am starting to monitor myself more.. Just so I won't have to slip into this 'funk' again!! Now I am off to catch up on your blog (:

isn't wah nails neat? they are simple designs that we can all do and it gives us great ideas. another website you might want to look at when you have time is http://wowwownails.com/gallery.html

they are only konad designs but still the color matching and layering is pretty inspirational

I hope you are feeling much much better now. I tagged you in my post but of course not need to do the tag (especially since you are feeling still quite weak) but I just wanted to let you know. =)

I saw that you have bad romance on your wish list. I have across the universe on mine. why is it so hard to get good polish to canada? ms. d. lippmann just won't ship to canada

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…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
