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).

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!
