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!

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..

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
