Make Some Noise + Shine of the Times

Hello everyone!

So, the title isn't anything creative, it is spelling out exactly what you're going to get within this post. I'm sorry. It has been a rough week. Yesterday I wasn't feeling so death-like, I actually felt well enough after writing my exam that it was time to paint my nails. I knew exactly what colour I wanted to paint them in.. But I didn't have any idea what to do nail-art-wise. Once I checked in with my sister for ideas (she also didn't have any for this particular colour, but gave me a rad idea for next week - awe yeah!), I decided to just bust out some luxeffects and call it a day.



So, we have got China Glaze Make Some Noise which is a stunning blood-orangey colour (at least to me..) topped off with two coats of Essie luxeffects in Shine of the Times, which is basically like SH Hidden Treasure.. Still absolutely gorgeous!

I really like these two gems together.. I am actually happy about them because they make me feel less like death and make me feel almost warm. Kind of a nice feeling for right now.

I HAVE to be feeling better by Wednesday.. I have the City & Colour concert to go to, and I refuse to be hacking up a lung in the vicinity of Dallas Green as we plan to be as close to the stage as we can be. REFUSE!

I hope everyone had a great week and that you're all in better health situations than I. This "cold" is a dozy, thankfully my whole family has been down and out with it.. I think I sort of made mine turn in to laryngitis, just a real great treat! Bleh. 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).

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!
