Gold Fingers

..Sort of?

I saw this post on Chalkboard Nails (I was linked there by my pal Silverinator), and I knew I had to get my mitts on that top coat. I am really, really thankful for my birthday group (more on the lovely people in that group soon!) right meow, because I was able to use an address of one of the members (thankies Ro!!), then she sent it onwards to me. It sort of sounds like a bit of work - but I'm going to say it was completely worth the work! Most of which I didn't have to do.. Just had to do the paying (:




On chalkboard nails, she used a turquoise base, and I thought it looked stunning.. But she also said it looked badass when used over black.. No brainer!! I used Orly Liquid Vinyl and Essie Turquoise & Caicos followed with some Gold Leaf top coat.

I. Really. Love. This.

It is beyond simple, but that gold top coat takes it just a smidge on the edgy side, and I think it looks 'badass'.

There is a link to an e-mail address to get in to contact with the creator of this top coat.. I am not entirely sure if she still has some available - but if you're a person that just wants your polish to go one step further, you should really try to get your hands on this! And the bottle sticker is kind of amazing also.

I actually received more fun nail mail to play with.. AND.. I may have started to get goodies for a giveaway.. I see I am getting MIGHTY close to 400.. SAY WHAT?!

Well, that is all for now - take care until next time!

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!
