Pink and Pink

Just a somewhat quickie post.

I am starting to make myself get up at better times (I can go to bed before midnight and not wake up til 2:30pm the next day.. And that is giving you the earliest time I could wake up at). I am starting to actually be more beneficial to my body after surgery. Finally I am starting to get through my head all the changes that have already happened and will happen. Craziness. I am starting to snap out of my funk! Woo! Plus it has just been over a month now.. Time flies when you're not having fun as well!!

Side note.. The other night, my bro had some of his pals over.. They were drinking and wanted to snap some photos of, well, anyways.. They borrowed my camera. Now, my camera isn't high quality, but I didn't want to get a new camera til around Christmas time as that would be my gift to myself.. I may have to invest earlier than I thought. It doesn't focus like it used to.. You have to take the photo and cross your fingers that it isn't too blurry. Plus it makes weird noises when you try to get it to focus. My brother says I am just trying to blame that on him.. But he does have a history of wrecking cameras.. Who knows what happened.. I just know that ever since he 'borrowed' it, it hasn't been the same. Prepare for sucky photos!!


Ok, so, what you're looking at is CC Warhol with Island Girl Hawaii: Pink sponged on top. Actually, Warhol reminds me of the Claire's mood polish I have.. I might have to do a comparison between the two. The two pinks don't look very different in either photo, but the top one is supposed to sort of show how they differ. IRL you can tell, honest!

And now to toss in a photo of Bennie because.. I went to check on him the other day.. And he had wrapped himself in his blanket.. Plus he is smiling.. Makes me chuckle!

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!
