Sephora Grand Opening Haul + My Sad Start To Halloween Nails

Ok, so, I will keep this no secret: I love Sephora. And, I love it even more now that was have one here! I swear, this is a tremendous day in Saskatoon history; horrible day for my wallet.

I went with a few of my faves for a full out event evening - and it was so worth it! I actually stayed under my Sephora budget, so I also bought myself the Katy Perry perfume as it smells amazing. Annnnyways..



I didn't have anything I particularly wanted.. And I was good - I put back the UD Book of Shadows palette.. BUT.. I found a different palette to purchase. A Tarte palette inspired by True Blood. Le sigh. And the colours seem to be quite pigmented. Swatches? Anyone? And the rest was just.. added bonuses. Ok, I lied. I did go wanting something in particular: Makeup Forever Smoky Lash. And I got it - yay! The only thing that I wanted that they were out of was a NARS blush.. I will get it next time, I guarantee it.. I mean, I will basically live there.

Now you can see my sucky first go at Halloween nails for this year. I apologize in advance, I didn't even clean these up as I was going to take it all off.. But I then saw the clock (midnight, yesterday) and was like 'ehmmm.. go to bed, you write an exam in the morning!' And they stayed. And people actually seem to like them. Weirdos (:


My red lines are too thick for the most part. I am dying without my "special" brushes. There is just no replacing them. Ugh.

BUT, I do have something exciting for my next post - which will be asap.. Eeee!!

Take care til then!!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).

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!
