Retro Nails

Honestly, all I can think of when I look at these nails is the era of my favourite music: the 80s. That makes me feel that calling these "retro nails" is fitting. Go with it, ok?

My lines are very shaky on these bad boys.. I blame it on the fact that I did these at 2 in the morning (Saturday) AND Big Brother after dark is suddenly on a channel available to me.. And I hadn't watched the premiere episode yet.. and I wanted to see the 4 returners.. And I was angry that Brittany was one of them.. Then I was okay because Janelle is back.. So you see.. I was distracted!!


I got the idea from this PHOTO I had seen via tumblr.. I wish my lines were more crisp, but when I'm not studying my picture of them, we're good - and I quite like them!

Also, I owe an apology! Apparently my blog has been giving malware warnings? I had no idea until it was brought to my attention the other evening. I checked with google security and did these verification things, but it claims that everything is fine. To be safe, I removed my blog roll.. I also read that sometimes it can pop up because of links as well.. Hopefully it won't pop up anymore? If it does - please let me know so I can look in to some more!

This week marks my "I'm going to start being extremely busy" time.. I think I have plans for the next five weekends in a row? I'm tired already (kidding - it is going to be awesome!) I'm going to try and at least still update once a week.. I mean, I'll be going out and doing things, so I will have my nails done - it is just to remember to snap photos within the anarchy.. I got this (:

ALSO! Watch for my post tomorrow.. I'm thinking in the am.. oooh ominous - have a great night!!

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.
