Lush Lacquer Birthday Cake

Today I have a little "swatch" to share with you all.. That and at least it is something to post - right?

I have been on a bit of an 'indie polish' kick lately.. I haven't even been paying any attention to.. name brands? lately.. I have a wealth of new babies coming soon.. So I figure I should actually start sharing them!

I ordered from Lush Lacquer mostly because of my birthday group - July's lady said she doesn't own any indie polish, so I scoured Etsy, looking at so many pretty polish.. Then I stumbled on Lush Lacquer.. Awesome! I ordered a couple of me and a couple for her.. And now I am going to share one of the couple with all of you!


This polish actually does remind me of those "funfetti" kind of cakes.. I love it! This was also just two cots of the polish - I didn't even put a base. I figure though, if I did put some white underneath, it might make the polish pop more - but I feel like it does a great job all on its own..

You can check out more of the awesome polish at lushlacquer.etsy.com - and their shipping to Canada is very reasonable!


And remember you still have a little bit longer to enter my Sticks 'n Stones giveaway! I am off to the lake after work today - I hope everyone has awesome plans for the weekend as well.. Or at least enjoys themselves (:

Talk to you all again 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.
