Lights, Camera? Pirouette My Whistle!

Lights, yes, Camera? Nah.. Well, I took the photos with a camera.. Technically? And Pirouette My Whistle.. Yeah. I honestly am the most loser-y person I know most days.. Moving on..

I picked Essie Lights the other day and was EXTREMELY excited about it.. It just looked so jazzed up and amazing in the bottle.. And I'm on a strange kick/fascination with all things neon lately.. It lived up to my expectations.

During that same shopping trip, I grabbed a couple of polish from the OPI Ballet collection.. Even though I wasn't too thrilled by the whole collection, seeing these two gems in person made me really, really want them! One of the pair that I nabbed is Piroutte My Whistle.

I had been playing with some nail wheels.. And had PMW over Lights.. And immediately I took off what I was sporting and slapped these gems on. It was basically like having heaven on display on my nails for a few days. Yeah, these two together made me THAT happy.



Ahh yes.. and looking at these photos - this was also the day I clipped down my nails again. I just love me some short nails! I apologize for not including my index finger in the shot.. I clipped it out.. That finger was covered in green nail polish.. I was working on something (:

This was actually Essie Lights over Orly White Out (I prefer to put neons on over a base of white.. I feel it makes them look more awesome and opaque!), then a coat of OPI Pirouette My Whistle. I seriously love this and almost want to just do this again. Actually, maybe it will be my next pedicure!

That is all for today - see you all again real 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).

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!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
