One Less Lonely Glitter Shattered + Nautical Nails

I know I should really hold on to one of these 'posts' so I can spread them out a bit.. But if I do that, I will forget to post them and they will be lost in a sea of other photos. So, you all get two different looks in one post.

I am going to start with One Less Lonely Glitter, which is in the Nicole by OPI Bieber collection. My sister, her bff and I were out shopping last weekend.. And we stumbled over the Bieber collection.. I wasn't overly excited by any of the polishes (don't get me wrong, they are lovely.. but.. I feel like I have a lot of the shades in my collection already..) Then I stumbled upon OLLG and fell in love. But I didn't pick it up that day.. I just kept thinking about it. I ended up back there a couple of days later and snagged a bottle of it!





Now, you all know by now that I am not just a swatch kind of person.. Nor am I one to really just wear a polish and be happy. There has to be something else to it.. Although I did love this all on its own. What to do.. Oh right. OPI Black Shatter.
I wore this for 4 days.. And had some minor chipping going on (see the thumb..) but I really did enjoy this combo.

Then, I decided to listen to the ideas of my favourite friend and try nautical nails. Now, when I think of nautical nails, I think of this POST and how amazing her nails look.

I tried my best..
Of course it doesn't look as amazing as hers.. But.. I still kind of like them! The only thing I would change is the gems that I used. I think if I used smaller gems, I wouldn't have picked them off so quickly and ruined everything. I did get quite a few compliments on them though. Maybe I will try again some day.


I used: CG White Out, Essie Lollipop and Revlon Royal. Also used is my trusty little brush and some gems I received from Born Pretty.

Well, that is all for now! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend and has a good start to their 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.
