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).

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!
