AFK

I feel like I have been AFK regarding blogging for a loooong time! Reason? I have been lazy.. Actually, that isn't really fair. I have actually been back at work quite a bit.. And after not being there for 6 weeks, a single shift weighs me down!! When I have a day off, I sleep for a least 10 hours (max has been set at 14 hours). I know, that is probably bad, but I was told that if I am tired, I should sleep/rest, so I am!!

I just wanted to pop on here quickly to post some photos for Li Lian. She asked to see a swatch of CoverGirl's NailSlicks in Khaki - and, with that, your request has been filled!!


A photo with flash and a photo without. I actually really do like this shade.. I thought it would be a bit darker, but it is more goldish than anything else. Both of these snaps are using three quick and thin coats of polish. The next time I use it, I am going thick.

I was debating posting a photo of myself that I just took moments before because I actually (for some weird reason) feel really pretty right now. Maybe it was from feeling super gross all day long and then feeling a bit better and messing around with hot rollers.. I don't know.. I guess maybe next time.. We'll see - I don't want to scare anyone away!!

Now I have to run.. It is my brother's first exhibition hockey game of the season! Hopefully he'll make the team (like they have a choice.. he is amazing!!) - Have a great night ladies!

Expect some nail artage next week. I am in the dishpit at work for the next 4 days so painting my nails is redundant!!

yay!! thanks for the awatch. For some reason I just really like the nailslick colors. I think they are really unique..this one included. i'm going to post a picture of my bottle later...it's all evaporated and empty but I don't have the heart to throw it away.

what is a dish pit? do you work in a restaurant?

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).
