Bahama Mama & The God of Destiny

Hello everyone!

Today I bring you Essie Bahama Mama with some accents of Rainbow Honey The God of Destiny..

Many of my favourite youtubers have been mentioning Essie Bahama Mama.. So when I stumbled across it at the store, I immediately purchased it. I love Essie polish.. but I think this is the first one (formulation wise) that I haven't been in love with. It is extremely runny.. I have never had that with an Essie polish before. Maybe it will be better.. who knows.. AND! For such a "dark" colour, it took three coats before it was even deciding to be opaque. In my mind, it is very similar to OPI Miami Beet.. I will have to compare.. I would much rather use Miami Beet if I want this particular shade on my mitts again. Dangit!

THEN! I got my new set of Rainbow Honey's Chrono Cross Collection in the other week.. I was going to swatch them all and do a big review post, but I figure I will just use them and show you how I am actually wearing them, and then maybe do a big ol' post at the end showing them all off. Yeah, that sounds good!


One thing I will say about Bahama Mama.. It is really, really glossy! Even without topcoat.. I guess it does have some redeeming qualities. 3 coats of Essie Bahama Mama (4 on some of my fingers..), then 3 coats of Rainbow Honey The God of Destiny on my middle and ring fingers.

Super simple, but a nice way to showcase some glitter. I like the combo!

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).

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.
