Lush Lacquer: Slumber Party, Cruisin 4 a Bruisin, and Snow Globe

Hey everyone!

I received these gems in the mail a couple of weeks ago (I will include links for you to go scope them out and possibly purchase from etsy, where I purchased mine).. and I wanted to use them all in a mani before I posted about any of them. I finally have that task completed.

I think I now have a solid 6 (7?) polish from Lush Lacquer, and I just absolutely love them. I especially like the three I am about to share with you all - so, let's take a little looksie!





We will start with Slumber Party. When I saw THIS post over at Chalkboard Nails, I needed to have this polish so I could wear this combination. And I'm really, really glad I did get my mitts on it.

This polish is a lovely mix of tiny white (matte) circular and square, circular black, circular blue, hex blue, hex purple, and large square pink glitters.

I used two coats of Slumber Party over a coat of Orly Mirror Mirror.. I was going to leave it with one coat (because it did look amazing) - but I wanted more pink square glitter! For some reason that just makes this polish for me. All of the other colours mixed together are swell, but then it is like 'BAM! Pink squares - you're welcome."

I had no trouble applying it either - which is how it usually goes for me and my polish from Lush Lacquer: zero application problems.



Up next is Cruisin 4 a Bruisin - the name alone is awesome - I guess it is pretty great that the polish coincides with the name. When I first opened these gems, I knew I needed to wear Slumber Party immediately, and I told my sister she could wear either this one or Snow Globe, and she went with this one. She painted Essie Mesmerize as her base - now, she said she should have gone with a lighter base - but I thought it still looked quite nifty.

When I went to use it.. I had a minor dilemma: what colour to use as my base? I immediately figured pink.. I thought it would look really 80s-like (I feel I was correct).. Then I was like 'oooh wait, a light blue!'.. When I was collecting a light blue from my shelf, I scoped a yellow and was like 'that could be fun!' I painted each base on a nail wheel, topped them with 2 coats of C4AB and posed a question to my amazing birthday group beauties - and everyone agreed with a colour, or two, or all three. Then I though "ooh, gradient!" but, I wanted to do a gradient right after wearing (aka Friday) and I didn't want to do to two gradients in a row (though there is nothing wrong with that!).. Then it occurred to me: alternate. Duh.

The pink is China Glaze Sugar High, blue is Essie Bikini So Teeny, and the yellow is Sinful Colors Unicorn - all of them topped with 2 coats of C4AB. Fun. 80s-esque.. aka my dream.


Lastly, Snow Globe. Lovely, right? I immediately knew I'd be wearing this over black. It looks amazing. What is not to like? Tiny white glitter, and an array of colourful activity mixed in: hex and squares in red, yellow, blue, purple, pink.. This is 2 coats over China Glaze Liquid Leather.

I loved all of these combos SO much that I made polish earrings out of them.. I took photos, but they all looked rough - I shall try again and edit them in.

I absolutely love these 3 newly acquired Lush Lacquer nail polish gems. Do any of my excellent readers happen to own any LL? Or if you could own any - what would you like to have? I noticed on their etsy page that they have their holiday polish up.. Must. Be. Strong.

Take care until next time everyone!!

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.
