Grey Scaled Cheetah

Or Grey Scaled Leopard.. Who knows.. Something from the cat family..

I was sorting through my untried drawer (well, I have some polishes that are untried in a drawer along with some other nail art/polish supplies.. I don't have enough new stuff to need a whole drawer.. though that would be kind of neat.. and intimidating.. anyways!) and I saw that Essie Cocktail Bling was still hiding in there. Um, Dee, why? You love grey polish.. I obviously had to do something to remedy this non-usage of this grey bad boy.



I used Essie Cocktail Bling, followed with some dots of China Glaze OMG and accenting/dots with my trusty China Glaze Liquid Leather (Orly Liquid Vinyl is hiding on me.. and it displeases me greatly!) and I also used a dotting tool that was sent to me from Born Pretty.

I have to say.. Cocktail Bling is a very intriguing grey to me.. It is almost hints at a lilac-y colour in some lights.. And I am not a huge fan of lilacs, but as a colour, I like. And I feel somewhat dismayed.. OMG is sitting at the 50% mark.. I think it will have to go in to hiding and only be used for special occasions, unless I come across another bottle somehow.. The stress!!

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.
