Kelly Meets Latticed Lilac

And got totally destroyed by a mini-monster who has an affinity for shiny items.

Quite the intro, wouldn't you say so?

I know I would!

Now for some explanation.. It was 2am.. I had an appointment at the bank at 10am.. I needed to have SOMETHING on my nails.. And I needed some sleep in there somewhere. THEN I remembered my newly acquired bottle of CG Crackle Latticed Lilac. I also remembered testing it on the nail wheel over Zoya Kelly. PERFECT!

Not going to lie.. I love this combo.. So, before I could capture it in a photo AND do cleanup.. I visited with Bennie.. He is a degu and has shown up on here many times before.. Anyways.. Apparently degus like shiny things (or he does, at least).. My nails happened to be quite shimmery.. He tried to steal my nail.. It wasn't like the time he bit me out of anger, he didn't even do any damage to my nail.. Just the polish..


You can plainly see the damage that was done.. Rascal! Ohh well. It was only going to be a one day thing anyways as I had to do dishes the next day. Though I do think this will be the next combo for my toes - I love it!

Now, even though Bennie was a nail wrecker, I still allowed him some hangout time with Fonze. I, of course, nabbed a photo for all of you to enjoy..


That is about all for now.. OH! Except hello to my new followers (: 261?! WHAT?! AWESOME! I appreciate each and every one of you, always!

Hopefully I will have something rad on my nails mid-week to show. And I am hoping to film another tutorial soooon!

Have an awesome start to the week everyone - I know I am!!

OH! Also, I know I shouldn't ask.. BUT.. If you don't know anyone else entered in that Styled On contest (on facebook), or, you like my entry, please vote for me!! That would be great!! VOTE HERE

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…

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!
