Nail Wheel Swatches

I finally figured out what to do with the package of nail wheels I bought..

I normally buy a few new (to me) nail polishes every month.. Sometimes I mention them, sometimes I don't. What I am really good at, however, is hiding them in my 'to try' drawer and totally forgetting about them..

Today, while out and about, I happened to stop in at Winners.. And right in the 'beauty' section was a set of Color Club polishes (the Pardon My French collection) - I have never seen them available there (although I have heard of them being around from time to time..) so I immediately snapped them up.. Even though I wasn't a HUGE fan of the shades. There was also a trio of e.l.f brand polishes.. I hummed and hawed over them, but ultimately ended up purchasing them.

Now, after being home and putting a swipe (or three) of the polish on the nail wheel.. I am extremely happy with my purchases.

Now on to the photos..

 The pretty CC polishes.. There is: Pardon My French, I Believe In Amour, Hot Couture, Oh Naturale, Turn The Other Chic, Take Me To Your Chateau and Si Vous Please.
 The e.l.f polishes.. They are: Moonlight, Royal Purple and Dark Navy. Also, I for some reason, took horrid photos of the wheel, so cut-off there is CC Pardon My French.
 Shown here is CC I Believe In Amour, Hot Couture and Oh Naturale.
 Shown here is CC Turn The Other Chic, Take Me To Your Chateau and Si Vous Please.

 And this is what I am currently sporting. It is CG Sea Spray. I knew I would probably be racing around running errands AND I really hate running around with naked nails.. I didn't do any designs/nail art because I knew I would probably be painting later.. But I do really like this colour and want to add a little something to it.. What should I do!?

Now time to address comments as I haven't done that in awhile. Sorry for the lack of nail art in this post.. I will try to get something else up by the end of the week - I promise!!

Comments from Cheetah Madness
  • Steffie - Thank you.. I also like them.. A nice subtle approach.. Although I cannot complain about rainbow-in-your-face cheetah print either.. Hmm..
  • Vixxan - I do too!!
  • shortwidenails - Bah! I knew I was forgetting a photo of something in this post! I will definitely snap a photo of it.. I actually really hated the pen at first.. But after playing around with it (and remembering to go over the design a few times for coverage) I kind of like the pen. I should get it in white as well! They have a wealth of different colours available!

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
