Quick Update-Esque Post

Hello everyone!!

I feel like I haven't updated in forever.. Which is mostly true.

I think my lack of posts is due to the fact that I just haven't really been doing anything with my nails. I know, extremely boring!!

If I do wear polish, it has to be something glittery as the glitter adds some depth to my nails, blahblahblah, I'm trying to find excuses for my laziness.

I mean, it was my favourite friends birthday on Saturday.. And I ran out of time during the day between work, picking out new glasses and showering that it came down to either taking a nap or painting my nails. Nap won. I went to an event with naked nails. I actually feel really sad writing that. Ugh. NEVER AGAIN!




These are the photos I currently have to post up. Boring, right? I am currently sporting Across The Universe.. And we're not the best of friends. There is extreme shrinkage AND tip wear all in less than 24 hours. Mer! I also think next time I use it, I will base with another polish. Live and learn.

Earth Matters. Green. Glitter. Love!

Ahh that reminds me!! I will have to snap a photo for the next post.. The seed card I planted.. Totally has a tiny, tiny little sprout! I ran around the house like a crazy person showing off that sweet, sweet baby to anyone that came in to my field of view. I'm so proud!

I think with my work schedule the way it is.. I will be painting my nails way less.. But I am going to have to designate days. I think I will have to do something Saturdays, as I work more outside of the kitchen on Sunday.. And then something again either Sunday evening or Monday during the day. Otherwise I will never paint them.. Which would break my heart.

Ok, enough sad update-ish post!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week! This "week" is always crazy for me.. It is a week of birthdays.. My FF on April 30th, the ma on May 2nd and the sis on May 4th aka today - Happy Birthday Lee-Lee!!

OH! Something else I wanted to mention.. I went for my first ever pedicure with my FF earlier in the evening. It was an excellent experience.. One I plan to actually keep up - especially for the summer! I am sporting CG Ruby Pumps, which, oddly enough, is a polish I do not own.

Alright, now I'm done!



  • Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes - I actually loved applying that polish.. I can see why it is one of your favourites!! I also cannot wait to see what that GOSH polish has to offer me.. Soon!!
  • JQ - I own 3 SpaRituals, but so far this is the first I have used and I have to say: love! I think you will really enjoy the brand once you get your hands on some!!
  • Minty - Thank youuu!! And thanks for the award! I will think of some facts and post something up soon! I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!! Thank you!!
  • Swaffie - I am quite pleased with what I have purchased in the past couple of weeks as well! And thank you, thank you! I will get to work on that award asap as well!! Muchly appreciated!!
  • shortwidenails - And swatches you shall get! Next post, I promise (err, don't totally hold me to that!) - But, what I can tell you from using both a few times: I am in love and I am extremely happy that I ended up purchasing both. In the long run, the Natural is more what I sway towards, but have been using the Naked palette WAY more!!

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.
