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).

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!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
