A Whale Of A Good Time

I am a HUGE fan of the nail art over at Mad Manis and have a wealth of their work saved in my inspiration folder. The other night as I was perusing through, I saw my saved photo of the Whale mani, and knew that is exactly what I had to copy!



Ok, now, I really love them.. BUT.. I kind of feel like they are more like psychotic killing whales.. They have that crazy look in their eyes! I'm also really glad that people seemed to know what they were.. They actually sort of remind me of 'Boo' from the Mario games.. Sort of.

I used China Glaze First Mate, OPI No Room For The Blues, Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink, Orly White Out, Orly Liquid Vinyl, and a dotting tool that I received from Born Pretty.

Oh, and as I write this, Ben is ringing his 'attention' bell (we call it something else, but that is kind of inappropriate, so I will save you all from having to hear what it is really called). It must mean he wants me to share a new photo of him with all of you.


Bennie, well, degus in general, have an affinity for shiny items. Apparently nail polish with some shimmer is no different. He tried to steal this and put it in his man cave. Don't worry though, I saved the polish!

Have an awesome Wednesday everyone! See you again soon..

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…

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!
