Goodies

I know.. This will be a post filled with goodies instead of nails - BUT - I will post up some nails tomorrow.. Today is about items I have bought and received in the last couple of weeks - yay!


So, a couple of weeks ago.. I came home to not one package - but two! Which is THE BEST! Since I already knew what was in the Sephora box, I of course had to open the package from Li Lian of shortwidenails. She had contacted me earlier about having some extra (duplicate) image plates and the first person she thought of was me - awe, yay! BUT she also tossed in some extra items and a sweet note!


She sent me the 3 plates: m56, m60 & m73. She also included a wealth of fimo canes and a set of amazing gold press-ons with rad musical note & stars glitter/confetti! Thank you Li Lian, you're a doll! I will be playing with these items soon!!

Then, of course, I opened up my sephora package.. some body wash, some face wash, some freebies, the naked palette.. THE NAKED PALETTE! Yes, I know I am a bit of a late comer on to the Naked palette train, but hey, better late than never! And my god.. LOVE me that palette!!

Actually, I am also really excited as there is a Sephora opening up here in the city next month! Eeeee! I cannot waaaaaait! We are going opening day. Seriously. I. Cannot. Wait! Oh, and this palette has a shadow called 'Creep', so of course I am in love with it!

Then, last weekend, while out and about, I picked up a few goodies..


I honestly did not know that Aldo sold polish! I snagged this glittery bad boy called 'Gold Digger'.. Then I am a sucker for the mini OPI Halloween sets.. Actually, pretty much anything to do with Halloween I need to own. I love the names they chose also.. The orange is 'He's My Boo', the white is 'Mummy Knows Best', the black 'I Only Date Werewolves' (my favourite name of the bunch.. queue Alcide flashbacks..) and the glow in the dark green 'Zom-Body To Love'.

In a way it was good my sister met up with us.. She talked me out of a bunch of other shades saying we had colours like them already.. But.. but.. Ugh. Next time!!



Then some swatch action for you all!

Well, hope everyone has an excellent Thursday night! I am going to go get some more school work in.. Bleh. This go to work and come home and do school stuff in a killer. No wonder my sucky immune system is failing already.

Bye for now!

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!
