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!!

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.
