Day 28: Lacquistry Lake Placid On Acid

Hey everyone!!

THE LAST DAY!

What an absolutely crazy (and wonderful!) adventure this has been.. and a little tiring - but in a really great way!

I said the last two days were going to be polish that I was really excited to share with you - now, I get to use this on a complete technicality.. which I am going to explain.

I had the "original" bottle of Lake Placid On Acid.. and I thought it was great. I did read about Jenna having to remake some polish because of bleeding, etc, but I honestly didn't think anything of it. Then, a couple of weeks ago, there was nail mail waiting for me.. and I thought "strange, I haven't ordered anything lately.." - it was from Jenna and it was a replacement bottle of LPOA.. I honestly didn't think I could like the polish anymore than the original. I was wrong.




So. Beautiful!

I put two layers of LPOA over a base of Butter London British Racing Green.. and I absolutely love this. I did happen to have a photo of the original LPOA on my nails. Not a great photo.. but, I can definitely say that I love this reformulation a lot more than the original. This was a polish that I bought specifically for its name - and I will be forever glad I did so.



Also.. my last day of the challenge.. did anyone notice anything?

I cut my nails right at the very beginning.. a quick refresher..


And I just let them grow to what they are now.. that is 28 days and now they are beastly long (at least as far as I am concerned). As badly as I want to chop them off - I will just leave them until there is a seriously crack/break/I cannot live my life with them.

Thank you all for checking in with me everyday, or every once in awhile.. We are about to head in to October aka my Christmas.. Expect at least one Halloweenicure every week (:

How about a quick overview of my 28 Challenge of Untried Polish..



 See you all again very soon!

OH - and - Silver is finishing up the challenge over at her blog - make sure you go check it out!!

Take care!

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.
