Colourful Zebra Fade

I obviously could not come up with a better title of this bad boy..

Besides that, hello everyone!! I hope you're all doing well!!

I figure I should get a post up today as I will have at least enough content for another post sometime before the week is done. I am starting to get to a place where I don't have to paint my nails and post up the same day.. I am starting to get a bit behind.. (much to the displeasure of my bff! Sorry Gordo!)


These were the nails I have been sporting for the last few days.. I swear Rebecca of Rebecca Likes Nails is my muse or something. She used a stamp to make hers much, much better.. But I don't believe I have that particular stamp (I have another one, but it just wasn't the same..) - I freehanded it.. And I might have been drinking at the time, so please do not judge too harshly!! (:


These are the gems I used. Of course I forgot to snap a photo of another child.. But, you're all pretty familiar with him.. Anyways, these kids are: OPIs: Shorts Story, A Grape Fit, Ogre-The-Top Blue & No Room For The Blues. I also used CG Liquid Leather. Technically I should have used the sponge technique to make this look even better, but I just painted them on.. No fuss!

Speaking of my 'bff' (I use that term in quotes as, well, we ARE, but I need to find a better term for it..) - she has been working crazy amounts of overtime, so she got yesterday off.. Mondays happen to be my Saturdays, so I got to spend the whole day with her! It was awwwwesome! Of course we went shopping. I will show you the non-nail polish goodies I bought (look for the nail polish bad boys in an upcoming post..) - If you are strictly all about nail polish and do not wish to look at anything but, you can close up the window now.. BUT, I have a huuuuge love for nail polish and an almost equal amount of love for other cosmetics (make-up, bath and body products, etc).. I think most of us do, but hey, some don't! Onwards we go..



I will start with the bath/body goodies.. I went to two 'rival' shops.. For a few reasons.. I used to have serious issues with scents.. I still do, but I can handle more now.. Little bits at a time.. Anyways, we stopped in at LUSH and for once the store wasn't extremely overpowering in its scents - win! I really wanted to get a lip scrub from them as my lips have been peeling a lot, and I don't help as I bite them constantly. The items are: Dragon's Egg bath bomb that smells AWESOME! Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly (it smells like jube jubes!!), Bubblegum Lip Scrub and a Charity Pot lotion.. Notice how I went for one thing and came out with more. I'm such a sucker. Oh, the Sweetie Pie Shower Jelly is amazing! So is the lip scrub.. Tested them both out last night.

I also wanted to quickly stop in to The Body Shop.. I was visiting the shop that a friend works in the other day (I wanted to get a candle.. and I get an awesome discount!) - as I was leaving, I noticed they had a new scent (at least to me..) LEMON! I am a sucker for lemon scented items. Of course it would be 4 bottles for $16, so you're getting 50% off. Done. I snapped up Sweet Lemon, Pink Grapefruit, Satsuma and Strawberry. All of them smell fantastic! I didn't see my good pal Raspberry in there.. I hope it wasn't limited edition.. I will have to ask my friend!! Anyways.. I love the shower gels.. They smell amazing and leave your skin nice and quite soft.


Also, while we were out.. I needed to stop at the MAC counter. The other night I used some of my Blacktrack fluidline.. I hadn't used it in a long time.. And I think it might be 6-7 years old.. Yikes! Time to replace. I was good there. That is all I bought. Then, later in the evening, the mother wanted to do a quick Shoppers run.. That is never a good place for me. I always buy some type of cosmetic. I have been wanting to get a bronzer as I do not absorb any colour during the summer (ok, maybe a shade darker.. and by darker I mean pinker).. I of course loved this one..


I did apply it a bit heavier so you could see it.. Notice the shimmer? I love shimmery products. I know they may seem silly and childish, but I don't get sick of them. I will probably be in my late 40s wearing shimmery eyeshadow (even though they are unforgiving with wrinkles..)

And that is all for today.. I hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday! I shall talk to all of you sometime again during this week!!




  • Claire - Aren't they adorable!? LOVE them also. Thank you!!
  • The Nail Buff - Thank you very much (:
  • A Polished Touch - Thank you! And thank you so much for following (:
  • Minty - Thank you!! I love the colour alone, but I really felt it needed an extra kick.. (:
  • Doo - Your orange franken is sooo lovely! I love the holo action to it!! I actually think the one you made is closer to what I wanted!! It looks so awesome because of the lemons.. That is my story and I'm sticking to it!!

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.
