Absence

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to get in a quick post explaining why I have not been posting too much lately.

It isn't because I don't want to be. Honestly, I would much rather be doing my nails everyday than not. No, the reasons I haven't been updating a couple times a week are: work and being extremely sick.

Now, work happens. Extra shifts happens, etc. Usually no big deal. BUT. With those added shifts, I just decide to skip doing my nails as they get wrecked right away anyways. I think the month of March returns to normal for me though.. Well, near the end of the month it will get crazy, but that is quite a bit away.

I was actually sick not too long ago.. Now I am sick once again. I figured this was just a sinus infection, but now I am thinking it might be something a bit stronger. Ugh. I really do not like going to see a doctor when I am sick as I always feel I would be taking up someone else's time who might be worse off than me. I know it is stupid, especially since I am pretty much in physical agony right now.

Oh well, such is life. If I still feel this miserable by Friday, I will try to make an appointment with my doctor.

I am also house-sitting for a friend right now. I did bring some polish along. I finally received OPI Black Shatter, and have been dying to do the rainbow nail underneath the shatter-y goodness! I am hoping to do my nails by Friday as well. Fingers crossed that I can stop blowing my nose and hacking up a lung long enough to do so.

Phew. Long update. Couch and netflix - here I come!

 I hope everyone is having a great week and is in good health!!

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!
