Collective Haul Post

I had a wealth of photos stacking up with items I have 'hauled' lately.. I figure it was time to post them all up before my camera gets angry about having so many photos stockpiled within it.. That and I feel like I need to make a post for the week.. (read: I am procrastinating from schoolwork on my day off!!)

I will start with these gems.. My first ever order from Butter London showed up yesterday! I decided to finally give them a shot - and, from my swatching, I am incredibly happy with them! Now to actually wear them.. Soo pretty though!

We have: British Racing Green, No More Waity Katie, Wallis, Knees Up, Toff, & Bluey. I was honestly most excited for British Racing Green as, to me, it is the green colour that is my dream car: the classic jaguar! It lives up to what I wanted!!



Then I have some polishes I picked up two weeks ago (!!) - they are: WnW Prowler and Blue Jitters; Quo by Orly Celestial Star; Borghese Euro Green and Stellare Notte.

I found the WnW little gems in Zellers and they were the last of their kind. Which basically translates to: must buy. I had read a post over at Sparkled Beauty awhile back, and she had mentioned that Shopper's had a Quo by Orly collection out.. Of course I had to check! The colours are lovely - but, as she said, they mirror some Orly shades. I figure I didn't have one like that so I was allowed to purchase it. Glad I did - it is lovely! Then, also at Shopper's, they were having a sale on Borghese polish. I don't own any of them and the $13.99 price tag never enticed me either for colours that I wasn't overly interested in.. BUT $7.99 polish does entice me a bit more! I nabbed these two shades.. I seemed to be in a glitter/shimmer mood that day!

Here I have the last of my hauled polish as of late.. They are: OPI Crown Me Already, Love & Beauty Mauve Purple and Mauve/Purple/Silver (yeah, they don't have clever names, sadly).

I was hoping that the mauve purple polish would be like any other polish I have bought from F21 and be extremely sheer as I wanted to do the glitter sandwich mani - but noooo, this one just has to be opaque and gorgeous.. My life - soso hard (:

Now on to a non-polish haul that has also been amazing to me.. I am talking about Bath & Body Works!! I am in love and cannot wait to make another purchase from them.. Plus they are going to give me another 20% off with a coupon code.. It basically eats up the shipping cost so I don't have to feel as guilty!





Candles, soaps, a wallflower system and wallflowers.. I really love the wallflower skull - I have an affinity for skulls and I feel it is perfect AND it glows in the dark.. Yeah. Awesome! Plus, my room smells like frosted cupcakes.. I haven't tried the other scents yet - but I definitely love my room smelling like that!!

AND now, if you made it this far.. I am going to post a nail photo. I honestly didn't know what the freak I was going to do with my nails.. So this Harringbone-esue mani was born and poorly executed..


I also have this thing about including a blurry photo lately. I like them? Strange.

Well, I hope everyone is having an amazing day! Talk to you all again soon!!

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!
