Cherry Nails + Tutorial

Hello everyone!

I finally did it.. I recorded another video tutorial!!

I bought a lovely new yellow polish the other day.. Like I said, Rebecca is basically my muse.. Actually, maybe her blog is a dangerous place for me as I really like every polish she uses.. Anyways..

I was really excited to use this yellow.. But how?! Ohh wait, I have been loving things with Cherry prints lately.. Why not do that to my nails?


Of course I couldn't just do an adorable cherry print.. I had to add a cherry print in reverse...


I used: Orly Spark, Essie Lolipop & OPI Green-Wich Village. I also used one of my trusty dotting tools (provided to me by Born Pretty) and my wonderful little brush.

Want to see how I did these? Visit this LINK. I am changing my youtube channel to my own personal account. It was just too much work going back and forth with sign-ins. This should be way easier!!

Oh, and a photo of my right hand.. After ONE FREAKIN' DAY! This is what I got for not using Seche Vite.. My left hand was still in pristine condition..


The dish pit at work also took chunks out of my nails.. Good thing this isn't my "photo" hand. Stupid steel wool.. If only I would wear gloves..

Anyways, thanks for checking out my post. OH! AND! 225 followers?! WHAT?! I am seriously going to have to cap a number for a giveaway (I am going to start collecting goodies for that starting........ now? Well, the next time I am out shopping!!) - Maybe 250? That seems like a good number (: Thank you to all of the new followers.. I hope I don't bore all of you (:

Have a great night/day/evening/whatever time of day you venture over here at - have a good one!!


  • A Polished Touch - Ouuu - did you post photos!? I am going to go scope after I finish answering these comments! Hard wired, maybe.. I am an extreme copy-artist as well though (:
  • Tierney - Yay! I'm glad!!
  • Miki - Zebra is one of my first loves.. I often forget about it though. Glad you like the colours as well - such a good combo!!
  • rebecca - Well, thank you for being such a good inspiration (:
  • Jade - Thaaank you (:
  • MaryBeth - They are always a crowd pleaser!!
  • Minty - Haha, ugh, if only I had really been drinking.. I said that only because I felt my lines were a bit of a mess like I HAD been drinking.. Whoops!!
  • Swaafie - Haha, I think if I had actually been drinking, my hands would have been painted and my nails would have been left bare.. This might be a worthwhile project..
  • Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty - Haha - nope, I am a definite Canadian blogger. I am one of those weirdo prairie kids! You so should - I am kind of in serious like with it (it isn't love.. yet).

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…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
