The Need For Orange Nails

Hello everyone!!

So, yesterday was a crazy and sad day. Most of it is work related, and I don't really want to delve in to it, but, I will just say, yesterday (during the day) sucked! My evening was a lot better.. I got to spend it with one of my favourite persons.. And we did a lot of talking before our movie watching.. Somewhere in our babbling, I excitedly said 'I have 200 followers on my blog!!' and she had said she noticed the other day I was at 196.. And that I should have a giveaway. I completely agree. We are going to be hanging out again tomorrow and we might do some shopping - either that or next weekend, SO! Watch out for upcoming Giveaway announcements!

Now on to this 200 followers biz.. WHAT?! How!? Seriously?? I remember when I first started this blog and I got to 1 follower. I thought I had really made it. AND it wasn't someone I knew.. I actually didn't start telling people about my blog for the longest time.. I am still not sure why - maybe I thought people would think I am even more weird? Who knows! Anyways, what I want to say is: thank you. Thank you to each and every one of you that has clicked 'follow'.. It means a lot to me! I honestly wish I could send everyone items to show how much I appreciate each and every one of you.. But until I start buying lottery tickets and successfully win the lottery, you'll just have to accept my sincere words of gratitude!

Geez, onwards to the good stuff already!!


Last weekend, I was at Shopper's Drug Mart with my siblings.. And saw that they had Essie Mink Muffs and Chinchilly.. Two of my lemmings.. Seeings how I only seem to find Essie polish there, I should have just bought them.. BUT Shopper's retails Essie polish at $12. A tad steep. Fast forward to Tuesday.. I am heading home from my hair appointment (buh-bye gross roots!) and stopped in at the mall.. I was looking for root volumizing powder.. Couldn't find it at Zellers, so I hotfooted it over to Shopper's.. I did get what I wanted.. But I also bought these two as they were on sale for $9! I can handle that..



I am most excited about Chinchilly - so I swatched it on last night with the plans that I would do some nail art today.. I was pumped.. Got this photo.. Went to my bed.. And tossed and turned for hours. Finally at 4am I got out of bed. I knew what the problem was. With my horrible day mixed with some massive headache, I had stopped listening to my thoughts. I wanted orange nails. I could not sleep without having orange on my nails. Has that ever happened to anyone? Not necessarily about a nail colour, but just that you need to have something so badly that you cannot sleep.. Be it a conversation, listening to a certain song, maybe having some type of snack.. Maybe I am just really strange.



I removed Chinchilly (which I loved) and slapped on Orly Sol Cabana. I am still shocked that I only have a small bottle of this polish. I love this orange. Once it was applied, however, it just wasn't enough.. Something was missing. I grabbed CG White Cap and slapped a coat on. I am pretty sure I sighed with content and then shut off my lights and went to bed. I know, I didn't do a clean up, but I was so excited to photograph these when I got up that.. Well, this is what you get!

Also, when I was outside taking this photo.. Yes, I went outside to take it - not sure if it looks better (also I was trying for a super shot!) - but I liked how the sunlight makes them sparkle! Anyways, about being outside to take this photo.. While out there, I discovered two goons...



2 of our 4 female rabbits remain. I believe these clowns are 6 (maybe even 7?) years old.. Top photo is Cow (aptly named huh..) and bottom is Lakai. Maybe when the lone male rabbit is outside tomorrow, I will snag a photo of him. (side note: as I type this, Bennie is frantically jostling his water bottle.. I think he might be jealous).

Anyways, that is all I have for you today! I am sorry I lied about having a video up by the end of the week.. I couldn't think of anything creative to do (even my inspiration folder failed me!) - I figured I would ask if there is any look I have posted that you would want to see a video of? Let me know and I'll happily do it!

I am going to go out and transplant the pumpkin plants soon.. Wish me luck!! Oh, speaking of plants.. The SpaRitual seed card that I planted has yielded one sprout thus far..






Have a great day everyone!!

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
