Connect The Dots

I decided to scour through my Nail Art Inspiration folder, and found this fun and simple look! I thought it would be perfect after a bunch of Halloween nail art (:


I used: CG Lemon Fizz, Essie Mint Candy Apple, CG White Out, OPI A Shorts Story, Finger Paints Leonardo Da Vin-Pink & Essie Mesmorize.

Simple and fun! I even clipped down my nails again - just a smidge. I am really enjoying shorter nails.. For now!!

I hope everyone has had a great start to November!!

  • Freshie - He is very adorable! I am glad that they do seem to get along as they are both alone all the time! I let them be together for a few minutes every few days - seems to keep them happy!!
  • Zara - Thankies! I agree!!
  • JQ - I figure I might as well be honest.. Not everything I do is photo-worthy, but I figure I can show that I do some terri-bad stuff as well - I am human!! I am going to have to keep my eyes wide open at Winner's from now on!! I would have probably passed it completely!!
  • Lily - Thank you, you're sweet!
  • shortwidenails - Haha, well, thank you! I suppose they weren't the worst things I have ever done! Pumpkin carving is so mean to thee ol' nails! I think we had a grand total of 25 kids, but I handed out about 30 bags of candy, I started to toss extras to kids (when I say 'bags', I mean I make mini baggies - this year they included: a candy necklace, a ring pop, a mini chocolate bar, Hot Tamales and a mini movie time treat) - they seemed happy! I think I have watched 'Hocus Pocus' twice this year. I am going to have to add it to my random old movies to purchase off of Amazon list!!

  • shortwidenails - Haha - yes! I have been tagging them for awhile now. I notice it is sometimes hard to see, and other times it is really in your face.. Probably why you haven't noticed! I don't even know why I do it.. I guess so that I won't have to worry about anyone taking my photos and posting them as their own - especially of my pets!! I was like 'you have beautiful nails! ugggh!' - My nail damage is much better. The trap door is gone!! I am sorry to hear about your chip though - that is always terrible!! Especially on square nails ):

  • Zara - Thaaaank you! I try.. This year I went with smaller details.. And I didn't screw up (too often..) - I was really pleased with them!!
  • April - Thank you and thank you! I also love Halloween as well.. I have only added to decoration ideas I want for next year, it is like a sickness for me!

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!
