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 (:

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!
