My Birthday Shindig Nails

For my birthday shindig, which was last Saturday.. I already knew what I was wearing clothing-wise, but I wanted something that was sort of matchy.. Because I wanted to use Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday as my accent..

Then Butter London Trout Pout came in to my life. I honestly could not be happier!! It is an amazing colour by an excellent brand. I actually think Butter London is quickly climbing to the top of my favourites list.. Which is great and sad - mostly for my wallet. That weeping you hear - yeah, my wallet.

Though, as most people say: you get what you pay for. Yes, I have to shell out for cash for the Butter London, and I believe I get less in the bottle compared to other brands, but, I love it. The formula is perfection.. I have a few more on the way.. I think my eyes just glazed over.

Enough with that hmmm.. I do apologize.. These photos were taken the day AFTER my shindig.. There was some intense games of quarters going on.. My nails are a little hurting, but you can get the general idea of this simple mani.



I actually HAD to order a few more that I've been wanting lately because the Canadian website recently launched the 'lippy's and I knew I needed the trout pout gloss.. and another polish (or 3.. yikes!)

Take care til next time (:

OH! And.. Happy Friday the 13th! I am going to be spending the evening with my bff.. I'm hoping that means that something awesome will happen to us because of this day.. Here's to hoping, right?!

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!

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…
