Squares

I stumbled across an image on this tumblr (it was on page 2 during my search) and I instantly saved the image and could not get it out of my mind.. Then I remembered I had some new Butter London (seriously, I feel like they should just create the polish line at my place.. so I can test them all out first.. That is how much I love them!) polish that I had my eyes on to use!!



I used Butter London Cheeky Chops (yellow) and Slapper.. I have said this before, and I will say it again right now.. I freaking love Butter London nail polish. I know it is a bit on the pricey side, but seriously.. So worth it! The only one that I have that I am not in love with is 'No More Waity, Katie'. If you're thinking about getting one or five - please do yourself a favour and get it/them, you will love this brand. Ok, I will stop my fangirling there!

You might have noticed that I clipped down my nails. They were all doing fine, no breaks or chips on EITHER hand, but I had a moment of, well, whatever, grabbed the clippers and nipped them down. There is just something about short nails that I love!

I also got to do something fun on Friday evening before date night with my 'bff' - I got to do 3 sets of nails at a little get-together/going away party. So, 'S', if you're reading this - I hope you and your friends enjoyed your nails and that they survived through the weekend! I had fun doing the nails - and it was kind of crazy. I'm used to doing one set of nails.. But three? Insanity, but a good time none the less.

Ooh, and I had mentioned some untried Butter London polish.. Well, two of them are now tried, but anyways..


This is Lady Muck, Cheeky Chops, The Black Knight (I always want to write 'The Dark Knight' - curse you Batman!) and Slapper. I also recently "acquired" Branwen's Feather, but that will be coming up in a different post at a different time - how ominous!

I hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday - it is time for me to go and hit the books some more. Exam tomorrow. Yikes!

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…
