Sticks 'n Stones..

May cause me to go in to perma-happy mode? Oh, that isn't how that how thing goes.. Well, it is now that I have Cover Brand Sticks 'n Stones.

I actually based my use of this amazing polish off to two looks.. One was based off of Thriszha's amazing post from a little while back.. and the other bout of inspiration comes from a gal in my birthday group - Tina; she doesn't have a blog yet, but once she does - look out!!



See.. Thriszha had really vibrant colours.. And Tina used more pastel-ish colours.. So I kind of met them in the middle? I feel like this is actually kind of amazing.

I used a base of Orly White Out, then I did random stripes of colours using: NYC Lexington Yellow (which is a polish I acquired through one of my SnS muses *grin*), OPI What's With The Cattitude?, China Glaze Electric Pineapple, China Glaze Sugar High, and China Glaze Sweet Hook. THEN we have the pièce de résistance, which is Cover Brand Sticks 'n Stones aka my new love. White and black mixed glitter in various shapes and sizes? YUS PLEASE!

I was able to snag a bottle from ninjapolish a little while back.. As a matter of fact.. I was able to snag TWO bottles.. Because.. as I pointed out before.. I'm extremely close to 400.. not that that extra bottle has anything to do with that, or anything.. Wait, what?

Hope you're all having a fantastic day - and I will talk to you all again very soooon!!

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.
