Contest Winner

The lovely ladies over at Polish or Perish were holding an anniversary giveaway a couple of weeks ago.. I decided to add my name into the mix.. At the time there were 600+ entries.. Draw date comes and out of 873 names, mine was chosen.

I FREAKED OUT! I might have even fist pumped..

Anyways.. Last Friday (the 13th.. ooo!) a package showed up for moi.. And I'd like to share the contents with all of you..

Earlier today I posted a swatch photo using these beauties.. Minus the GREY polish of course. The brand is called 'Brucci' and I have never heard of them, but I love them. They apply nicely and are perfect with two coats! From L to R: Emmi & Olli Go Bananas, Sheri's Pistachio Creme, No Label, Gianna's "Rockin" Blue, Roberta's Green Garden and Alexandra's "Hot" Gray (it kills me to write grey with an a).

I loooove Sheri's Pistachio Creme polish. It makes me want to make pistachio cake.. Maybe I will surprise the family with that sometime this week!!

Here we have Denim Creme and Funky Frost

 These bad boys are: Steel Creme, Concrete Creme, Marble Creme and Mosaic Creme

 These are: Khaki Frost, Purple Rage and Blackened Teal. I am actually really excited to try out all three of these. So is my mom. Sigh.

These guys are all mattes.. They are: Matte Galaxy, Matte Blue, Matte Olive, Matte Plum and Matte Grape.

And now some solid randoms: Barielle Ultra Speed Top Coat, Essie Wicked, Essie Matte About You, Essie Show Me The Ring, OPI Thoroughly Modern Millie, OPI Mini? and Seche Vite Top Coat.

I usually do not put my name is for giveaways (or too many..) but I had to for this one. I really wanted Essie Wicked and Matte About You. The fact that I won is still surreal to me!!

Thank you x a million to the lovelies at Polish or Perish - you are all amazing!!

  • shortnails - That would be amazing if they did have them!! I don't have one here (sadface!) and thank you.. Everyday is just another step in the right direction.. Or some other philosophical saying!!

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
