My Christmas Nails

I finally did some. Took me long enough!!

Here are the nails that I have been sporting for Christmas.

I got the idea from WAH Nails. I am pretty sure the first way I saw them was with green, but they have a bunch of photos with the candy canes on a gold background.






Now, I cannot hear you gasping, but in my mind I can hear it. Why? Well, because of the extreme whiteness of this photo. My dad gave us a bunch of cash for Christmas (he also bought us a blu-ray player AND an xbox, plus the kinect.. it has been an amazing holiday season for us!!) - so, with some of the $$ he gave to moi, I bought myself a new camera.

I haven't mastered the settings on it. Which could explain how white my hands are. BUT. I kid you not, that is seriously how pale I am. All. The. Time.

NOW! Besides that.. I like the photos I am seeing from this camera. The images are very sharp/crisp and I love that!

Oh. Polish used.. CG Jolly Holly, OPI Alpine Snow, Essie Lolipop, CG Liquid Leather and CG Party Hearty.

Downfall? I filmed a tutorial the other day on my roses mani.. And uploaded it.. Or so I thought. Then I deleted without checking the folder, because, well, my other camera ALWAYS put EVERYTHING into said file. The new kid needs to be trained. Needless to say, tutorial video is gone.

BUT! I will re-film. Maybe even tomorrow. We shall see!!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I am kind of considering a nap. I worked this morning, came home, played kinect sports and now am tired. Heh.

Talk to you all again soon. I think I am going to change my nails this evening (:

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.
