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!

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!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
