January Polish Days - Try Something New!

Hey everyone!!

Something a little different to bring to you today.. I came across this 'Polish Days' monthly themed blog participation.. ehm.. thing, and thought that it sounded fun! I had a really long time to figure out a new technique to try, but of course, I'm a master at procrastination and left everything to the very last minute.

Of course, at the last minute, I'm busy.. but I did need to paint my nails for work the next day (aka today).. SO! I figured if I paint my nails with an untried polish, that counts as something new (it even says in the description for the month that you can just use an untried polish).. I stay within the rules AND get to test out a new polish..

And that polish is..

Deborah Lippmann Let's Go Crazy

So, let's!




This is 'Happy Birthday' in a fun grape jelly base.. and I really, really like it! This is two coats.. it dried super quick, I'm happy with it.. All in all, I'd say it is a winner. My last two Lippmann purchases have been awesome in my book! To date, they are the most expensive polish in my collection.. but.. if I have my way (with myself.. that sounds weird.. ummm) I will add a Chanel polish in to my collection next month. I really, really want it. And I'm on a "no-buy" for the rest of this month.. Anyways, I'm babbling!

Make sure to check out the other posts for today - they look gorgeous!

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.
