12 Days of The Hunger Games: Day 2

Pop quiz time my doves..


You have to be me, and if you've been following me for awhile, you should get this.. I see this colour on my nails and I need to DO something with it.. What do I do?

I think I can hear some of you shouting the correct answer..


Oh yeah, I snakeskin it.. Of course!

I used China Glaze Agro as the base, followed with some stamping (BM plate 215) of WnW Black Creme and Orly Glitz.. I'm not going to lie.. I love this.. And I think it will be something I sport.. A lot!

Day 1 tomorrow.. And the official opening day of the movie.. For those keeping track.. What polish will it be tomorrow??

EDIT: I just wanted to mark this day as a bit of a downer. I'm out of town at the moment.. And received a phone call around noon today from the mother.. My sweet little baby rabbit (Lakai), was put down this afternoon. I still call her a baby, yet she, along with her remaining siblings, just turned 8 years old. In a way I'm glad I wasn't home at this time.. I'd be a mess just taking her in. Though at the same time I'm happy.. She was suffering. I just wanted to thank all of you again that left kind comments the other day.. Losing a pet at any point in time is awful.. This one especially stings as she was born in our house and we have been around her since day 1. Ugh. Must. Stop. Writing. Tears. Forming.

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.
