31 Day Challenge: Day 30 Inspired by a tutorial

Day 30... YESSSSS! 1 more day! 1 more day! Seriously, I did not think this would be, um, as challenging as it actually has been. It is kind of a bittersweet point in time: it has been really great posting every day, but, I kind of hate that overwhelming, deadline-y feeling EVERY DAY! I only like that for assignments and exams.. Anyways.

One discretionary note.. This tutorial is incredibly adorable.. My take on it? I could not draw a star to save my soul tonight. I apologize. Blah!



I think one thing this whole challenge has taught me is: I need to work on my skillz. I feel like a good 25% of what I posted was not very good work. I better get my butt in gear and come up with some quality posts.. I want to end the year off on a high note!

So, for tomorrow.. Recreate your favourite challenge.. Is it what I have done? Someone else.. I have no idea! What would you all like to see me do again? I have an idea of what I would like to do again.. but please, let me know what you'd like to see! Then tomorrow, when I get home from work, that is what I will spend a solid chunk of time doing!

Til tomorrow my dear readers..

Oh wait.. I was able to snap a cute photo of Ben this evening.. He was actually not squawking at me.. He might look a little disheveled here.. I woke him up for a seed and I love when I do that and he curls up in my hand.

I think this looks great :) What kind of animal is Ben? He looks like a cute little rascal. And you got yourself a new follower :)

@Sirena - Thank you!!

@Helga - Ben is a degu.. So, he looks rat-like, but he is actually more closely related to a rabbit. He is quite smart and, yes, he is a rascal! And thanks for following, happy to have you!!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

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).
