Humblebee

Hey everyone!

First and foremost - sorry for the slight disappearing act! This whole month has kind of been a bit of a blur. I feel like I have barely had time to even sit back and scope out any blogs on my blogroll - let alone blog! Insanity!

I started working a new shift (well.. it isn't new, nor necessarily new to me.. but "new" as my "shift".. yeah..) - but it is going to be a good thing! I will probably have to paint my nails every other day due to tip wear.. So that means you'll be seeing more posts of just polish, and a lot of times with different little top coats/glitter/shimmer. I will save "nail art" for the weekend.. I can probably promise at least 2 posts a week starting soon. Plus I have a little challenge starting up with a fellow amazing blogger next month - stay tuned for that!!

Phew, ok, now on to a quick snapshot of Humblebee. It is originally done by Nail-Venturous, and now Ninja Polish is producing it with her permission.

Now, my photo should have been taken this morning before work.. You will see the tip wear and a little bit of shrinkage and a spot where a speck of glitter flaked off - but I think you'll get the general gist of this awesome gem of a polish!!


Again, not the greatest of photos and it doesn't do this polish justice - but at least it is something.. right?!

I got a wealth of compliments from residents today though.. Any time I receive any compliments I feel that either the polish or nail art is a win. Awe yeah!

ALSO - are any of you getting a malware warning when visiting my blog? I had someone say they were, and yet when I checked on the site security - it gave me the all clear.. Just wondering!

Take care everyone - see you all again very 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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
