Metallic 4 Life

This is a polish that my sister bought my for my birthday.. And I love it! I had seen it awhile back and she has remembered me commenting on it (clever girl!) and I am glad that she did. It really doesn't seem THAT exciting.. Black base.. Silver glitter of various sizes.. Ho-hum.. But I kind of feel like it is.. Magical.



I apologize that my nails were a little beat up.. I either take a photo right after painting before clean up time, or too late.. After I have done activities and my nails look like garbage.. I can never "win"!

Anyways, this was 2 coats of OPI Metallic 4 Life.. Then.. On a blog the other day (I went back well over a week in my blog roll and could not find it - she used Lady Muck as a base.. And purple over top.. With striping tape.. Anyone??) - but I was like 'oooh.. I will accent nail this up with the striping tape and Silver Shatter! It will be all criss-cross-y and shatter-y'.. Nah. It didn't shatter.. But I still kind of like it. And I did receive compliments on it from strangers. Mission complete.

I actually have 2 other posts all saved up.. Ahead of the game? What! That is insanity.. Look for another post soon - until then, take care!

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.
