The Sister's Haul

Hey everyone!!

Sorry I haven't posted yet this week - I honestly do not know where the week went!

I have a photo to post of the polishes that my sister hauled recently. She was out and about (aka shopping) and had phoned me while I was at work to let me know she had bought some China Glaze pack and an OPI polish. Once she told me it was from the Christmas collection, I was immediately asking her if she saw a polish called 'Party Hearty' - she had. She didn't buy that one though, she had bought the trio pack with the two greens (Mistletoe Kisses & Jolly Holly) as well as a gold (Midnight Kiss). She was also pumped because they had a display for the Burlesque collection - she picked up Sparkle-icious - which I was really happy about as it was on my list to buy!

So, starting from the top: CG Midnight Kiss & Mistletoe Kisses, OPI Sparkle-icious, CG Party Hearty & Jolly Holly.

Oh, wait - what is that? You see Party Hearty when I said she didn't pick it up? Yeah. I asked her (maybe a little forcefully..) to go back in and please please please pick up Party Hearty! And she did (:

These are the nails I am currently sporting. Sorry, a pre-clean-up photo!! I actually filmed a bit of a tutorial for them. I e-mailed the genius mind behind SuPa Nails to make sure it is okay to use them/make a video about them. We'll see!

I am going to a wedding tomorrow, and I think they will complement my dress. It is just a dark purple.. So I might as well have fun with my nails. Oh, and well, my shoes. They are cheetah print flats. What can I say? I don't really go to weddings (:

I hope everyone had an amazing week! AND that you all will have a great weekend!!

  • Pretty - Thankies! I am feeling tres better now!!
  • shortwidenails - Yeah, I have no idea what it was. It was definitely flu-esque and terrible! Yet, I didn't really pass it on to anyone? Maybe it was specifically designed just for moi! I do use a tiny brush. I should probably snap a photo of it one of these days. It is basically my best friend for nails.
  • Sylvia - Thankies (:
  • Lacey - I wish I had her creative mind! Thankfully I can just copy her ideas and hope for the best!!
  • Zara - Thank you and thank you (:

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!
