Day 9: Essie Fiji, NYX Dynamic Glitter, and Wet n Wild Stars & Stripes

Yes, you have read that correctly: a 3 for 1 deal.. and I am not going to lie, this is extremely cutesy and girly and lovely.

I pinned a photo of this POST from Neverland Nail Blog - and I think she got it from somewhere else.. and.. well, where ever this did originate from - you're a genius!

I loved the purple.. and I happen to have a lovely lilac purple to use from my untrieds.. but I didn't have any purple glitter (that I felt was good enough to use)..

As I was perusing what I could use.. I spotted Essie Fiji.. Yup, I wanted to use that adorable pink. Sitting close by was NYX Dynamic Glitter.. Hey, awesome! I will do another glitter accent mani - nbD - two birds, one stone. I was jazzed about life. Then I was scrolling through pinterest.. saw the mani again and I thought.. why not do it with the pinks?! AND GET STAR GLITTER FROM WnW STARS & STRIPES! kjhbkxjdgfhkdjg.. I have momentary spells of genius-dome.



Adorable, right?!

I did 3 thin coats of Fiji, then I used one of my trusty little brushes to do some "swipes" of Dynamic Glitter, then I used a dotting tool to pick up just the stars from Stars & Stripes. Perfection.

I abso-freaking-lutely love these! It is going to be a sad day for baseball when I have to change things up tomorrow. Le sigh. Thems the breaks, right?

Remember to scope out Silver's BLOG to see what she has posted up for today!!

P.S - This is my 300th post. 300th!! Yay!!

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).

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!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
