Zombie Zest Shattered

Hello everyone!

Sorrrrrry x a whole bunch! I have not been a very good blogger lately. I actually just have not been good at doing my nails lately. Everything I seem to even attempt is a pretty serious fail - so much so that I don't even want to scale down the images and post them. (They are really THAT bad!)

I had worn CG Zombie Zest with OPI Black Shatter for the Skrillex show on Tuesday evening.. And it actually held out until today.. Then, once I returned home from work I realized I had pulled a 'derp' move and never took a photo.

You get to see some tip wear and some chipped polish due to me doing dishes at work and my forever hate relationship with wearing gloves while doing the dishes. (seriously, it makes my hands much, much worse!)


The only reason I am sharing this is because I actually think it is a great combo! Halloween-ish, while not going over the top. A "safe bet", if you will.

AND! One more day to enter my little giveaway.. I cannot believe the response to it - you're all awesome for entering AND for actually reading what I wrote and telling me what you like (or don't like) about my personal favourite month: October. I cannot wait to find out who the winner is!!

Annnd I should also be painting my nails tomorrow as well. I'm hoping that I will actually do a good job.. Unlike the fail job I did with my Freddy Kruger nails - yikes!

Have a great evening everyone!

EDIT: I ended up buying an extra set of Revlon polishes as a bonus due to the volume of people entering the giveaway. I got the 2 winners via random.org on Friday (ok, Saturday at 12:05am) and e-mailed them. No response from either winner.. SO.. I have used random.org again to select two people - I am e-mailing them right now.. Hopefully I will hear back from these two so I can send off these gems!

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!
