Day 12: Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid, NYC Big Money Frost, Pure Ice Celestial, Sinful Colors Unicorn, Spoiled Pet My Peacock

Ohh yeah, this is happening. 5 untrieds in 1 post.

As I write this, I keep looking at these nails - because to me, in real life, they look amazing! Yet when I was looking through the photos, it looked kind of.. not amazing.



It all started the night before. I could have been a day ahead with posts.. But.. I had just painted my nails with Celestial, and topped it with Pet My Peacock. It was just sort of.. blah.

Then I was like 'why not peacock feather nails?!'.. then I hit the internet for inspiration photos. I stumbled across this POST - and I knew I had colours to match.. and they all happened to be untried. YESSSSSS!!

Started with My Kind of Cool Aid.. Then I did some "feathering" with Big Money Frost (thankies Danielle!), then I used Unicorn (thankies Des!!)((edit: whoops, apparently I have used this gem once before.. well then..)), then some Celestial activity (thankies Collette!).. Then I just felt it wasn't finished.. It needed some pizazz.. So Pet My Peacock came in to play.. (thankies again to Des!!)..

Again, I feel the photos don't do this any justice.. But I think it looks rad.. Eh, you win some and you lose some. I won this round.. my camera makes it almost feel like a loss. Merp!

Take care everyone - see you for day 13! And remember to go see what Silver posted up for today!!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
