Merry Christmas!!

Good afternoon/evening/whenever you happen to be reading this..

MERRY CHRISTMAS! How the freak did it get to Christmas already? I swear this whole year was on ultra-speed mode or something. Insanity!

I am not sure about the rest of you, but the weather here has been extremely nice.. I don't ever remember having a winter quite like this. I mean, we're taking care of a dog right now.. And I was out in the backyard with him.. In a t-shirt. Here.. In Saskatchewan, Canada.. Whaaaaat!? And there is next to no snow. I mean, I have always been a firm believer in a "white" Christmas, but this was a really nice change of pace.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas - I know I have! I actually just got back from work, and, I have to say, it was a great shift! Now to just relax.. I can handle that!

I decided to not do a bunch of Christmas nails this year.. Which is kind of upsetting in a way.. I should have still done them. Ahh well, next year, right?! BUT! There was some posted up a little awhile ago that I knew I had to replicated.

The Nailasaurus posted these adorable reindeer nails.. And yeah, instantly knew I needed to have those painted on the old nails. Done.. I wish my Rudolph nose was a little more.. noticeable though. Ahh well.




I was trying to make some of the shots rad and take them in front of the Christmas tree.. Not my greatest of choices, but ehh.. The thought was there!!

And I'll include a photo of Bennie.. Because he is adorable and was loving the camera lately.


Alrighty, again, Merry Christmas! And have a great rest of the day (:

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!
