Bridget Jones's Diary Inspired Nails

Actually, it was the second film, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. I was watching this movie the other night and passed out with about 40ish minutes left. Of course I could not leave it unfinished.. So I watched from about that point onwards the next afternoon.

In one of the scenes (where Bridget finds out she will be working with Daniel on his TV show...) she is wearing a light blue blouse with either black or brown dots and some peachy-pink dots. I instantly knew I wanted to paint that on my nails.



I was rather annoyed that during the painting process - well, just before I was getting ready to apply top coat.. That there was some cotton fluff attached to a dot on my index finger. Of course I grabbed it and of course it would drag across the brown and ruin my night. Ohhh well!!

I still really loved how this turned out! I also really liked all the colours together!!

I used: OPI What's With The Cattitude?, Essie Little Brown Dress, Color Club Pardon My French (I think) and a dotting tool which was provided by Born Pretty.

I should really make little labels for my Color Club polishes.. They came in a set and are not labeled on the bottle. Kind of annoying as I also have to look back to see what they are called!!

Well, I am off to go paint my nails with the franken polish I made for the contest over at More Nail Polish - if you haven't seen it, go check it out! You have until June 2nd to enter.. Plus, as this is technically my third (I basically made the same colour on my first and second tries.. Anyways..) - it was nice to have a reason to do some frankening!

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday.. I have been cleaning. all. day!


  • Enigma - Yay! I am glad I am not the only one (:

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!
