Atlantis Zebra

Hello everyone!!

Hope you all had a great week! The start to mine was a bit crazy.. For some reason I decided it would be rad to work two shifts on Sunday.. Basically 16/24 hours worked. It has led me on a strange path of sleep deprivation aka destruction of my life. At least my next pay cheque is going to UHmazing. I need to start saving for Edmonton anyways..

Now that the intro is out of the way, let's move on to what I am currently sporting on my nails..



There is a definite possibility that I took 43 photos and these were the two that I liked the best.. And they are still not so great. CG Atlantis was being a major pain for photographing. BUT! I am happy to report that my new camera is back in business! Thank you ebay for saving me $44 (plus taxes) for a new charger PLUS spare battery.






These are the gems I used: Nail Life Gripper Base Coat, CG Atlantis, CG Liquid Leather, Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, and my handy nail art brush.. That I still keep in the gross yellow polish as it keeps the brush in tip top shape.

I hope you'll all have a great weekend! The next couple of weeks are going to get a bit insane via work, but I am hoping to still sneak in at least one post a week! Also, I have been working on getting a swatch of each polish I use. Not only to keep cataloged on here for all of you, but also to ease my troubled mind.

Take care til next time!!



  • Swaafie - You really should! You would do such a great job with it!!
  • shortwidenails - I will show you a close up of the brush that I love! I did buy a set of brushes last month, but haven't really used them.. Anyways, the brush..


is like that.. nothing too serious.. Sometimes I have that happen to.. I still do designs even when I know they are going to get wrecked the next day. I cannot help myself!! Oh, and here is a photo of the SH Nail Art Pen - it is like working with a permanent marker, basically..

  • Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes - Thank you! I thought so too (:
  • Alyssa - Hah, I thought about it after and wondered if I should just have put 'A' - as long as it is ok, your name will stay as is!! Bah! If I would have known you were looking for that gem - I would have told you!! I found it once at a Shoppers, and then saw that display at 'The Store'. I am just glad you have it now!!
  • amelia - Well, sometimes I am not so creative, but I am an okay copy-artist (: But thankies!!
  • JQ - That is an awesome comparison! I would have never thought of that!! Thank you!
  • Musicalhouses - Thank you for thinking they are neat! I was right next to displeased with my work, but, it seems that people really quite liked it (:

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.
