St. Patrick's Day Nails

This post is going mostly be about my St. Patrick's Day nails.. But I had to mix in some other random photos/stories as well.. Which I usually do.. Anyways, onwards to the post!


Since I am doing St. Patrick's Day themed nails, I obviously have to do something with my favourite colour: green. I personally love every shade you can throw at me.. Even the crazy 'puke' greens. I can never get enough green! For the look I did, I used: CC Twiggie and OPI Jade Is The New Black. I also used a dotting tool that was sent to me for review from Born Pretty.


And here they are. Hopefully you can tell that I TRIED to do clovers.. I don't hate these, but I don't really love them either.. And some look half decent.. Others.. Erm, not so much! But whatever, I tried!!

Oh, and, Happy Birthday to YD if you ever stumble across this post! Your date of birth is totally and completely fitting of a 'holiday' for you!!

The next thing I am going to talk about is the perfume I bought the other day.. Now, my sister, her friend, YD and myself are all heading to Edmonton next month (I am extremely excited!!) - so I have put off my order from Sephora as we're going to be going to one of their actual stores (they are also building one here.. just not sure when.. anyways!) - I really wanted THIS perfume.. Because I heard it smells like green apples, which I love. Then I remembered Shopper's Drug Mart and their perfume selections. Went there. So glad I did not order that perfume. I would have disappointed. It smells terrible to me!! I was stumbling around the rest of the fragrances slightly upset, then this caught my eye and I remember hearing that the Harajuku Lovers perfumes actually smelt really great.

And.. This one does! It smells extremely coconutty to me, which I love! Also, I am scent sensitive and this has yet to make me stuffy/coughy/sneezy/bitterly angry.. Perfumes always seemed like the ultimate girly thing to me.. And it just so happens that lately being extremely girly is exactly what I am going for. I just wanted to type about my happy findings with this perfume!!


Finally.. These little darlings showed up!! I am really pleased to have them all in my possession. I personally really like the crackled trend. I find it looks like you've done something really fun and interesting with your nails when you haven't really done anything at all aka they will be perfect for my lazy days.. When I don't want to do nail art!! Pictured are: Fault Line, Black Mesh, Crushed Candy, Lightning Bolt, Broken Hearted and Cracked Concrete.

My sister actually had CC Twiggie with Fault Line (purple) over top on the other day.. It looked amazing together!!

Anyways, that is all for today! I hope everyone has an amazing day! I imagine I will probably have another post up before the end of this week (:



  • Swaafie - Thank you! I know she used gold sequins, which I was going to do.. But I wanted something a bit different and more button-y!
  • Minty - Ooooh awesome idea! I totally accept the challenge! Expect a post about that soon!!
  • Tierney - I knew you would like them!! You should totally do something like that for one of the yacht club parties!!

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.
