Colourful Plaid featuring Revlon Pop Art

Hello everyone!

Today I bring you some colourful plaid nails.. inspired by.. myself!!

Ok, well, actually, my BFF first inspired it by talking about plaid nails a few weeks back.. Then I picked up Revlon Pop Art and thought 'this could look great for plaid nails!' and I then I thought of the plaid nails I did 'back in the day'... and then this was born... reborn?





Products Used
Nail Life Gripper (base coat)
Revlon Pop Art (blue)
Zoya Pippa (yellow)
Revlon Pop Art (pink)
Orly Liquid Vinyl (black)
Orly White Out
Cult Nails Wicked Fast (top coat)


I really love these. Again, I feel the lines look a little wonky in these photos, though I can't not smile while looking at them.

My only minor complaint.. the blue from Pop Art completely stained my nails! Like, really badly. I know that some times when I read that on a blog, I go 'well, I have that particular polish, and it has never stained my nails!', this could very well be one of those times.. which is why I said 'stained my nails', maybe it won't stain for everyone. In fact, I was so upset by the staining, that I cut all my nails off. I feel a bit better about it all now.. Just a teensy, tiny complaint.

Also.. I have it on really good authority that if you come back tomorrow.. there will be a photo tutorial on how I did these.. I know people.

Have an awesome day everyone - see you soon!!

P.S - I have been having some trouble with commenting for people.. I will explain my issue and then one of you gems might be able to answer it for me.. When first come on to blogger, everything is good, I'm signed in, I go through my blog roll, reading posts.. and then, when I go to post a comment, I am logged out, and despite logging back in (numerous times) I cannot leave a comment. I feel awful because when some one does something great, I want to leave a comment expressing my like for what they have done. And now I can't. Does this happen to anyone else? Is there some way I can correct this issue? Help?

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!
