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!

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.
