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.

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.
