Creme De Menthe

Hello everyone!

Before I do a little intro on what I will be sharing with you today, I first want to kind of ask a question of you all.. I posted on the blogger help forum, and have yet to receive any type of response.. Anyways.. I feel like a total jerk.. I keep going on to other people's blogs with the full intent of leaving a comment.. but after I have typed out my comment.. and hit enter.. nothing. It is like I'm signed out. I check now when I load up a blog. The top right corner stays to sign in or register.. yet I am "signed in", but I cannot comment or anything. It is very frustrating. I don't know if I picked up some sort of, well, some sort of something.. but if I come across something in my blog roll, and want to leave a comment, I want to LEAVE A COMMENT, and I cannot. I use firefox as my browser and refuse to use anything else. Help? Has anyone had a similar thing happen? Any fixes? I'm desperate! Who has two thumbs and just fixed their problem? THIS GUY!

Ok. On to the good stuff.

When I spoke about Silly Lily Polish J-E-L-L-O the other day, I did mention that I bought another polish from her.. and I am going to share it with you all right meow. I was scrolling through her items, and saw a few that could have been my second polish, then I laid eyes on this gem and it was all over. It is Silly Lily Polish Creme De Menthe and I personally love it.

Nail Life Gripper (base coat)

Cult Nails Wicked Fast (top coat)




A pale green jelly base, green, green, and green glitter, and matte white glitters? Um, I feel like this was designed for me!

My application might not have been the best - I honestly need to thin it just a touch (mental note: do that asap or you'll forget!) but I honestly just love this polish. I did get a few compliments on it - and some one thought I did all the little white dots by hand. Apparently people think I have some serious talent!!

Now - I want to just talk a bit more about these bottles.. I really like them! I like the shape of them, I like how they were packaged, I just liked them a lot.


 First, when I took them out of the box, they looked something like this (obviously much nicer.. I ripped them out of the little baggies before I could take photos.. I'm impatient!) - I already liked how they were wrapped in bubble wrap and then placed in a little bag.. it seems like some thought was put in to rather than 'whelp, bubbled wrapped - slam dunk in to the box!' (I'm not complaining about that either - the main thing is bubble wrap.. I just like the extra thought here).

Next, I like the bottle shape. They aren't round, or square, they are octagons! I love it! I don't have any bottles that are in an octagonal shape - and I really quite enjoy it! I know.. what a loser getting all worked up about a bottle shape, but it is just delightful!


I'm a stickler for little details.. might I mention this one.. a little sticker on the top of the cap? I pretty much geeked out at this point. There are indie companies with  beautiful bottles, labels, etc, but this actually warmed my heart.


 Oh, and then, when you have a child weeping (which he does pretty much any time I'm not focusing all of my attention on him) when you're doing "work", you bring them over, and they photo bomb every shot until you give them your hand and allow them to scope out the camera. Bennie, why must you be oh so cute?

I was not sent these polish for a review, I bought them on my own accord, I just wanted to share with you all how pleased I was with these polish. Even the shipping to Canada seemed quite quick - which is always a plus in my books! Check out the shop HERE - there are some absolute gems over there.

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!
