Cranberry Splash with a touch of Frozen Flame

Hey everyone!

First, a touch of an apology. I'm truly sorry for the minor absence on my part. I have kind of been in some strange "funk" lately. I am still not sure what exactly happened, nor do I want to bore you all with details.. But I think I had a little bit of a shutdown period. BUT. I feel like I'm getting myself all rebooted up.. and I'm ready to join my regular life again aka blogging. I knew there was something really "off" with me when I was wearing the same horribly chipped nail polish for 3 days. Whenever I get a chip, it is immediately off when I return home. Finally, going in to day 4, I was like 'ENOUGH!' and rectified the situation. I did do a nail look that was awesome, but I didn't even photograph it. I will have to do so again soon. It was using some gems that Silver sent to me. Once I use one of the gorgeous polish she sent me (again) - I will do a full post! So.. sometime this week!

Ok. Moving on!

Saturday night.. during one of my study breaks, I decided to cut my nails riiiight off. I decided that after snapping out of my "funk", I should do a proper restart with my nails. Clipped right down. It always makes me really, really happy when I have super short nails! Less chipping.

I didn't know what I wanted to use.. and I didn't really want to not be studying (re: cramming) for too long. Then I remembered that I had a couple of polish in my untried drawer. Snapped up China Glaze Cranberry Splash and Rainbow Honey Frozen Flame. Yes and yes.


Side note: My hands are EXTREMELY dry these days. I put lotion on at least 10 times a day, cuticle butter, and I even wear my special medicated (eczema steroid cream) at night, with gloves, and they are still unbelievably dry. I am probably dehydrated. I so apologize for that. GROSS!

I really wish I would have snapped a photo of Cranberry Splash on its own. It is exceptionally gorgeous. I have been lovvvving red polish lately. I am glad I got this and With Love from the Holiday 2012 collection. They both make my smile.

I used two coats of Cranberry Splash (even though one coat would have worked just as well) and followed that up with two coats of Frozen Flame. Love. They are very festive feeling. I like it.

I got China Glaze Cranberry Splash HERE & Rainbow Honey Frozen Flame HERE.

Talk to you all again 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).

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..
