Cocktail Manicure

A little while back, I viewed a post on Rebecca's blog about the China Glaze cocktail manicure, I loved the idea! I looked through the shades that they had listed.. And I had either one or the other, but not both.. Except for the "Manhattan" - I happen to own both colours needed! Awe YEAH! It says to paint your left hand with the one polish, and then your right hand, or cocktail hand, has the other polish applied to three of the fingers. I obviously had a DERP moment when painting my nails.. I should have reversed, as I hold my drinks in my left hand.. Thus that should have had the fun time colour. Next time..

So, since this was something a bit different, I took my photos a bit differently.. With the help of my sister!


I used China Glaze Make Some Noise and China Glaze Electrify.. I was enjoying some "Orange Dream" blended beverages with my sister.. And this is how they make me feel..


Yup, you guys get to witness the classic 'Delainie' look..

I hope everyone is having a tremendous weekend! I will be back with some swatches this week or a new to me brand (aka I have recently started acquiring them, and I kind of think they are amazing) - so be on the look out for that!

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).

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..
