Chanel Malice

Hey everyone!

Today is just a "swatch" post. A couple of weeks back.. I had to make a rather difficult decision to have one of my pet rabbit's put to sleep. It was an awful day, and an awful experience (though the vet and his assistant were absolutely lovely people - so their decency was very appreciated).

She would have been 10 years old in March. It hurt even more because she was born in this house, and now.. she is no longer around.. There is just her brother left from the group of five babies, and, well, there is Bennie, but he doesn't count for anything *grin*

The next day, while scoping out things on the internet.. I came across a site that was selling Chanel Malice.. A colour that I have been wanting ever since seeing a swatch of it.. But I had held off.. until the day after my sweet baby girl's death.. In a moment of absolute weakness, I ordered the polish.



When it arrived, it was a bittersweet moment. Here was a polish that I desperately wanted! Yet to justify my buying it, I was an emotional wreck. I obviously needed to put it on pretty quick.. I wasn't disappointed.

Le. Sigh. It is just exceptional. I wore this all on its own, and I received SO MANY compliments on it.. It is that captivating of a colour..

Yes, it is the most expensive polish I own (hopefully ever.. it was rough realizing what I had paid after escaping my emotion stupor) and I wish that I could say that it wasn't worth the price, that it was horrible formulation, that it was awful.. I'm sorry, my doves, I cannot. This was exquisite in every sense of the word. It applied like a dream (could have been a one coater - but you know meee!!), the brush was great, it dried wicked fast, it wasn't runny or too thick, just a real treat of a nail polish!

Now, I would be happy to add more Chanel to my collection, but it will be pretty difficult to fork about that much cash for a nail polish.. it will have to be pretty special!

Have a great Monday 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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
