China Glaze The Hunger Game Capitol Colours Collection

This. Post. Could. Not. Wait!

I had originally planned to post up some other new stuff I got the other day and the nails that I did with one of the newly acquired colours.. BUT! When I picked up this package today and saw it was my order from Nail Polish Canada, I knew that post was going to be put on a back burner.

Okay, first, I have to make a confession. When I did see the swatches for these gems online.. I wasn't overly thrilled. I just knew I'd be ordering them all anyways because I loved the book series so much.. I know, a sad reason to have a bunch of polish that you aren't overly excited about. In this case, however, I am really glad for my inexplicable reason to own them all. They. Are. All. BEAUTIFUL!

I did some swatching on a nail wheel to post up.. I mean, they do not do these bad boys justice, and for that I truly am sorry.

THEN! I had a moment of sheer genius. There are 12 colours.. And just over 12 days before the movie comes out.. PAPOW.. I can do a '12 Days of The Hunger Games' series. (I hope no one else out there has this going on either.. I mean, if they do, let me know! I will link you!) I was so jazzed about my idea, I bbm'ed my sister and told her. She probably thinks I am now crazy. It was either her or my bff I would have to message about this epiphany. I went the sister route as SHE READ the books (love you Gord!) - moving on!






So we have: Fast Track, Dress Me Up, Hook & Line, Mahogany Magic, Foie Gras, Agro, Harvest Moon, Riveting, Stone Cold, Smoke & Ashes, Electrify, and Luxe & Lush.

Again, I know these swatches do not do these any justice.. You'll just have to stay tuned for my '12 Days of The Hunger Games'. My plan is to post everyday using a different polish out of the 12 in some sort of nail design or as a base, you know how it works. I will sort of go from my least favourite to my favourite - though that isn't really a fair statement as I kind of have a new place in my polish loving heart for them all.. I guess it should be the from the polish I feel I will personally use the least to the one I feel I will use the most. Yah, that sounds better.. Right?

I will have that starting on Monday.. I am extremely excited. I scare myself sometimes.

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.
