Innocent Mani

I would have to say that this is probably the most innocent looking mani I have ever seen.

I always loved the konad stamp that I used for this look. I was so excited when I realized it was on one of the plates that I won.. I feel with that using that image over this green looks.. Well, innocent. I cannot think of anything else to say about it.

I feel like a young girl about to have a tea party with her stuffed animals or something.

You might also notice that I clipped off my longer nails. I went back to work this past weekend, and while none of my nails were broken, there were a few chips and I just think it will be easier to have my nails a wee bit shorter. Right now they are a bit shorter than I would like them to be, but I must admit that typing is MUCH EASIER!

Now to the photos..


I used 2 coats of CG Re-Fresh Mint, then stamped with Konad special polish in white and sealed with Seche Vite. I am really pleased with Re-Fresh Mint, it is everything I thought it would be and more! I quite like this shade of green.

Now it is just time to rest. I went on some weird cleaning rampage today.. I think it was because I am feeling guilty. I was back to work on Sunday and Monday.. Today? I slept until really late in the afternoon. Whoops! Back to work again tomorrow, then some time off until Sunday again. I am tired just thinking about it!

Hope everyone is having a great day - and had an enjoyable long weekend!!

  • shortwidenails - Thank you! I actually do seem to be going through a lucky streak lately!! I actually really like the double ended stamper.. It gives you two options size-wise. I use the larger red stamper for full sized images (except for on my pinky nail as it is quite a bit smaller), and the little green stamper for smaller images as it gives you more placement freedom. All in all, I would say it is a good investment. If you're really thinking about getting one, let me know! I have a spare kicking around that will probably only collect dust!!

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!
