Konad Plate m84

I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by Michelle at Nail Polish Canada - and she asked if I would be interested in reviewing a konad plate.. When I saw the photos of them, I knew immediately which plate I wanted.. m84 - the middle image was all I really saw: STARS! I love them.. And have a tremendously hard time actually paining them (oh, you'll see..)

It showed up to me late last week, and I have been thinking a lot about it ever since. I had a bunch of non dish washing shifts this week, so I knew it would be the time to bust out that beautiful plate and test it out.



Now, after my adventure with Half n Half nails, I wasn't quite ready to give them up.. So I went with half China Glaze Lemon Fizz and half China Glaze Sweet Hook. I liked them already.. Then I had to go in with my sub-par stamping 'skillz', but, believe it or not, this has netted me the most comments by people so far this year.. I also was impatient and have some dragged areas - but, the image itself is amazing. As you can see.. via my thumb.. I had an area of blank space, and instead of trying to just stamp on some stars, I freehanded.. With a dotting tool. Not so pretty, but no one really seemed to notice.

I love the idea of the stars.. I can see me adding this in to my next go with galaxy nails!

Also, when I was first glancing at the plate when it arrived, my mom pops around my shoulder and says 'can I get you to put those bows on my fingers?' - I was like 'what bows?!' - yeah! Adorable bow on the plate as well. Geez! See? I was so enthralled with the stars that I didn't even notice the other images. The bow, some really gorgeous flowers and some hot lips. Not going to lie, I lucked out!

I think it would be a really great plate to own, especially with spring right around the corner - the flower images scream spring manis with pastel colours - just saying!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
