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!!

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…

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!

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).
