Guest Nails Vol. 1

Hey everyone!

I feel like I haven't posted in FOREVER! For that, I do apologize. Work has been kicking my ace lately.. And now that I have a few days off, I am totally slacking. Ugh.

Yesterday, my friend (and awesome co-worker) Amy stopped by. She had asked if I could do her nails for Halloween. I was pretty excited to be asked because I have only done one other persons nails.. aka my mom. Ok, and I have helped my sister.. Once.

ANYWAYS! I do believe her and some of her friends are dressing up as The Pussycat Dolls (awesome) and she wanted her nails to match this smokin' cheetah print bra she has.




The nails photographed a bit brighter than they really are! And I left her a bit of a mess due to the sponging! We started off with OPI Dim Sum Plum, then we sponged some combo of Quirius Purple Passion, CC Warhol, Island Girl Hawaii Purple and CC Mrs. Robinson and this is what the outcome was.

She said she likes them and I do as well! It was fun to do someone elses' nails for once - plus, it doesn't hurt that she has GORGEOUS nails to begin with (:

I will probably back later with my final Halloween nail post.. Unless someone goes wrong tomorrow and they chip horribly.. And I will have to do ANOTHER Halloween themed mani.. Not that I would complain!

I will also answer past comments on the next entry - Take care til then!!

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).

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!

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…
