The Nail Polish Tag

The rules are to answer the 10 questions, pass this tag onto 5 bloggers, and to make sure the bloggers you tagged know about this!

1. How many polishes do you have?
I would say under 200. I am currently working on a spreadsheet, so hopefully I will be able to give a legit answer soon!! EDIT: Hah.. ugh. 248 + 33 that I took out because I don't ever use them.. plus many, many minis. A lot more than I thought I had. Whelp, time to add more!

2. What is your favourite brand of polish?
I am going to have to say China Glaze.. But I do hold Orly in high regards as well.

3. Do you like crackle nail polish or do you hate it?
I quite enjoy them.. I just don't use them too often. Only when I'm in a rush and need something to toss on to my nails to make them seem fun!!

4. What is your first nail polish brand?
It was probably Maybelline.. Or Cover Girl Crackle polish way back when. I saved some of my babysitting money to purchase it.

5. If you were to have your own nail polish line, what would you call it?
I would call it G&G.. It reminds me of the days playing Railroad Tycoon with my dad (aka me teaching him how to play!) and we always named our company G&G (Gloeden & Gloeden, our last name).. I feel it has rad name. I guess that is what my company would be. A line though? Something nerdy and referencing movies or books. I would probably name the colours after my favourite movie murderers.. awkward?

6. What nail polish colour does not compliment you?
Actually, my Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air does not suit me at all! It makes my pale skin look too zombie-esque when worn alone. I layered it over What's With the Catitude? and it looks better..

7. What nail polish colours do compliment you?
I don't really hate any colours on me.. But that doesn't mean they compliment me.. BUT, I figure I'm a "winter" colour wise, so, any rich tones.

8. Name two of your best nail art friends.
I would say my sister for irl nail art friends.. Though I do have friends that are getting more in to painting their nails and such - it seriously makes my heart smile! And online? I'd say Li Lian of shortwidenails - she is such a sweetheart! We have had some good correspondence over the years..

9. What was the best nail polish gift you've ever received?
I'd say when I won the Polish or Perish anniversary giveaway. I don't really enter too many giveaways, but I did enter that one and won.. I got so many nail polishes - and brands that I would otherwise never get my mitts on!

10. Make a speech about thanking the blogger who tagged you.
Alex won one of my Revlon nail polish giveaways.. It finally arrived to her! She is a sweetheart and I was happy to be in contact while we anxiously awaited those gems to get to her! Not only did I get to know her a bit, but I found a new blog to follow - always a bonus!!

Now for the five blogs.. well, you all should know by now how I am with these bad boys. If you're reading this and haven't been tagged YET, well, then, TAG! Do this (:

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!
