Mardi Gras

Hey everyone,

So, last month, on the 26th, a friend (one of my sister's best friends which in turn makes her one of my friends.. you get how it works!) had her birthday party. It was a super great 'Murder Mystery Supper' and the theme was Mardi Gras!

My character was Bourbon DuPre, he was a struggling and incredibly bitter/angry musician. Needless to say, it was amazing!

Her and her family really decorated it up amazingly! It was perfect! Now I really want to do this for my birthday.. Come on April!

Anyways.. Despite playing a male character, I had to do my nails.. And it was Mardi Gras.. I immediately remembered Emerald Sparkled Mardi Gras manicure. Though mine doesn't even come close to what she did.. The idea of it was there and it looked alright!


It was such a great time! I am quite happy to finally be posting this as I am now re-living all of the greatness that was her birthday!

Well, I better run off.. Finish building my desk, maybe do some homework/reading for classes, PAINT MY NAILS and get ready for the concert tonight! Eeeee! Have a stellar night everyone!!

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).

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!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
