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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
