Olive Mod

Hey everyone! Sorry it has been a little while since my last post. I have been busy and then extremely sick. I am still the latter part.. Fun times!!

I never did get a photo of my last manicure.. Super annoying. I really didn't like it, but I did get a ton of comments/compliments on it. I will have to do it again. I used a polish that I quite like and need to order more of.. ANYWAYS! Onwards to today..
***Not My Photo***
I kept looking at this photo in my inspiration photo.. And wanted to do it.. And I knew which purple I would use, etc. Then I remembered my 'untried' polish drawer calling out to me..

So I yoinked Essie Sew Psyched out of the drawer.. Grabbed a white (OPI Alpine Snow) and a green (CG Jolly Holly) and got to work.


And this was born. I really like Sew Psyched, I am not so psyched on the overall look though. I really wanted to use black and white, but that is so safe! Oh well! It has been fun to wear regardless. I will probably have to do something new tomorrow anyways. I have a bunch of cage cleaning, tidying up, cooking and baking to do today.. Plus more death coughing. I feel that entitles me to painting my nails tomorrow.

I hope everyone is having a great week!!

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.
