Day 24: ToughAsNailsLacquer The Baconian Method

Hey everyone!

I don't think I have ever officially said it, but I will not just to clarify: I freaking love indie nail polish! I was trying to explain it to the ma the other day.. I don't think she really understood it - but for those of you that don't know.. It is awesome gals (and guys!) that make polish on their own.. and they are always amazing combos - whether it be colours with glitters, just glitters, just colours, shimmers, a mix of everything, whatever.. AND the names always make my heart smile! In fact, there are a few that I have bought solely because of their name. Seriously.

I was really excited when I saw a post about 'The Breakfast Combo' polish.. but, at the time, she wasn't delivering to Canada. I had told her in our conversation that if she ever changed her mind and would ship to Canada - she should contact me. I expected to never hear from her ever again. A few weeks later, I received a message from that the polish was now being shipped to Canada. I immediately put in an order.. and these have been just waiting to be used.. I have used 2/3 now - my ma voted for me to use "the bacon one" first. Uhh, yeah!!


I am majorly in love with it. Though I should have photographed it BEFORE work - please forgive me!!

"The Baconian Method is a brown glitter topcoat. It includes brown, orange, red, black, and white glitters in hex and bar shapes. The Baconian Method can be found in the lab, tirelessly experimenting to develop the next great waffle topping."

I put two layers of it over Orly Liquid Vinyl.

I think I almost like the addition of the little white glitter the most.. It helps to add more depth.. I don't know - the whole thing just makes me smile!! So great!

I ordered mine HERE.

Remember to check out Silver's blog!!! See you all tomorrow!!

Have an awesome day everyone!

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…

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!
