There is always room for J-E-L-L-O

Seriously, there is.

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you an impulse buy polish that I'm insanely happy to have indulged in.. Though my application isn't the best (I got a little carried away with the polish and my top coat, thus leading to some bubbling.. if you can look past that though - true gem!)





Products Used
Nail Life Gripper (base coat)
China Glaze Lemon Fizz
Silly Lily Polish J-E-L-L-O
Cult Nails Wicked Fast (top coat)



This whole impulse buy started from this POST. When the polish arrived in my hot little hands on Tuesday, I really wanted to use a similar pink for my base, as it looks absolutely adorable, but I just wanted to use my favourite yellow ever and then top it all off with J-E-L-L-O. So I did.

I did end up getting a wealth of compliments on it - probably because it just looks like 'fun' slicked on to my nails. I really like this combo. I legitimately feel happy looking at these gems.

I got my bottle of J-E-L-L-O HERE, and I will do more of a review of it all when I do a post on the other bottle of polish I picked up.. I mean, it felt weird only ordering one bottle of polish..

Also.. a side note: is any one of my amazing followers a Fall Out Boy fan?! If so, aren't you as excited as I am?! I love their new song. What a great week - filled with a ton of work, fun nail polish goodies, and music! Yay!

I hope you're all having a great week so far.. and I will see you all again very soon!

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!
