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!!

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).

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!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
