Guest Nails Vol. 2

Technically this should be 'Guest Nails Vol. 3', but I mislabeled my other guest nails.. Whoops!

I mentioned in my last post that I got to do my sister's nails and my mother's nails the other night.. And I said I would try to get photos..

I mean, obviously I got them.. Or this post wouldn't exist.. Right?!

On to the nails!!


First up are my sister's pokeball nails.. I cropped out her chipped nails.. So you don't get to see the whole hand.. I did it as a favor to her! They are actually really cute and fairly simple to do!! I used Essie Lollipop, CGs: White Out & Liquid Leather.


These are the nails I did for the mother. She told me to do whatever. So I did. The flash on the camera really changed the blue.. It is hard to believe that is Ogre-the-Top Blue. I used: CC High Society, OPI Ogre-the-Top Blue & CG Liquid Leather.

I think I will close this post with a Bennie photo, as it has been awhile since that rascal last made an appearance.


I think that about wraps it up for now. I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready to start an equally great week!! Til next time..

OH! I wanted to say that I received the GREATEST bbm AND photo from my favourite friend this evening.. She cheetah-upped her own nails! Using a toothpick! I LOVE them! Maybe I will get the photo on here (with her permission, of course) as I am extremely pleased with what she did! Gordo, you did me proud!! (: x 8000!!




  • Swaafie - Thank you! I honestly think that I will play with that colour on Tuesday evening! I am glad someone else shares my love for lime and yellow colours.. Specifically a hybrid of the two, heh.
  • Li Lian - Thank you so much! I always think they look like, well, crap, when compared to other people's nails. This is a HUGE compliment. I just use the brush, but to preserve it, I always put it back into the yellow polish.. I find it keeps the bristles together. I would be lost without my skinny brush!!
  • Zuzu - Thankies!!
  • rmcandlelight - Thank you so much!!
  • Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes - Again, a HUGE compliment! I am glad that you were able to tell what they were just by looking at them - my mission is complete!

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!
