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!!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
