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!!

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!
