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!!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).
