Line Time

Hey everyone!

Just a quick post, as I am fairly sure these nails will be gone-zo after tomorrow, which makes me a sadface, but such is life. I apologize for the chips already. Work.. Ruins everything.. But I also like money.. Such a rude cycle!



I got the idea for these gems HERE and came up with.. well, that which you see above! I like that her lines are more.. free? Despite my best efforts to not follow a pattern, I still see a slight pattern. I can never just let go! Some day.. or week.. or month.. year maybe?

Also.. Watermarking.. The little corner watermark that I used in these or the old diagonal action I used in some of my old posts.. Lemme know!! 

I used: Orly Mirror Mirror, CGs Peachy Keen, Re-Fresh Mint and Lemon Fizz as well as OPI Shorts Story.

The reason I tossed in my base polish and top polish is to show I have swapped for now. I usually use China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat - and I still absolutely love it - but I am seriously falling for this Nail Life Gripper polish. Lesigh. So nice! I will be going back to my Seche Vite top coat asap though.. This Barielle speed dry is just not cutting it! Also, with Seche, I can do my designs/art and instantly apply. With this bad boy, I allow my work to sit for a few moments before applying (to give it a fair shot) and it still DRAGS the polish. Lame!

Also.. I am such a genius (note: sarcasm) I LOST the battery charger for my new camera. I have seriously searched every conceivable place for it.. So disappointed in myself. For now I have to use my old camera (which I had graciously handed over to my brother, then not so graciously took it back.. for now!) I went to Best Buy to try and buy another charger, but they are ridiculously expensive (plus, at the time, I was extremely sick and had a gross coughing fit in the store.. I keep it classy).. Thank God for ebay is all I have to say. I am hoping to get the set I ordered some time next week.. Fingers crossed!!

I hope everyone is having an amazing weekend!!





  • jaljen - Thank you.. I think I agree with you.. I am glad to have been unsafe for once (:
  • Zara - Thanks.. I agree, the design that was made was amazing.. I am happy to be able to do a slight replication!! And with colours that I really like!!
  • Danielle - Thank you, thank you!!
  • DesertNails8 - Haha! Yes! That is exactly what it is! Coughing up a lung with the ever so classy 'lung butter'.. The cough isn't as frequent now, but it is still just as terrible. I am almost thinking I am dealing with pneumonia.. Fun fun!
  • Lacey - Thank you, glad you do (:
  • shortwidenails - Ask and you shall receive.. I do warn you though.. It is pretty scary! I tried to organize it a time or three.. Serious business! I don't have done out in deco.. I was going to use A Grape Fit (as it is what I have) - Did I mention a polish that I love that I need more of? There are many!!
  • ABOP - Yay! Thank you so much.. I am happy that my recreation didn't disappoint!!

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…

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!
