Lake Placid on Acid + Goodies

I just got home approximately 40 minutes ago and figured I should make a quick post!

I recently ordered some polish from Lacquistry and I have one of them to show you right meow!

I ordered Lake Placid on Acid, partly because it is amazing and partly because the name of it is excellent! My pictures do it no justice and my nails look turrible (yes, I do mean turrible), but I am going to post them up anyways.



I received a plethora of complements on this gem while we were milling around Edmonton. I am also a huge fan of it. I put Revlon Royal underneath, but I think I could have gotten away with just the polish alone. I will test that out next time!

Now for some goodies I picked up while in Edmonton. Nail polish is definitely what I bought the most of..


I nabbed the other half of the Back To Boho collection from Color Club (it includes: Boho Mojo, Nouveau Vintage, Voodoo You Do, Artsy Crafty, Blue-Topia, and Rebel Spirit), I grabbed two Deborah Lippmann polish: Lady Sings The Blues & Happy Birthday, two China Glaze polish: Make Some Noise & Sweet Hook AND I figured I would try that Out The Door topcoat.. I still love Seche, but I just wanted to check out this bad boy.

I also did buy 2 items from Sephora.. I can post up more about them if anyone wants, but I bought a YSL lipstick (kind of a monster splurge!), I bought it in Rose Opera (#29) - seriously the silkiest lipstick ever! I also bought the Tarina Tarantino Dollskin Cheek Palette. I am a NARS blush snob now, BUT, this palette looked stunning. Plus Vampy Varnish made a post about it a few days ago.. And I wanted to check it out, then once I saw it and swatched it on myself, well, it was a done deal!

Anyways.. I am now possibly dying (a nice cold to end the weekend.. great!) and I have meetings to attend tomorrow and I still have to paint my nails. Some of the shades in this Back to Boho set are screaming 'snakeskin' to me.. I think I will give in!!

Hope everyone had a great weekend and will have an awesome start to the week!!

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…

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!
