My Mini Pirate Polish Collection

Hello everyone!

A bit of a different "post" today.. But it will still have some rad polish included, so it works!

Last weekend, I was at a salon/boutique here in Saskatoon called Alchemy.. While looking at all the awesome items within the shop, I came across some indie polish called 'Pirate Polish', so of course I was studying the few bottles in stock and ogling the nail wheels.. One of the gals came over and explained that the creator of the polish was local.. like.. here.. in the city. Seriously!? I nabbed a bottle of 'Radioactive' and a card, went home, and went to the etsy shop immediately.

While I was paying for my bottle of 'Radioactive', the gal told me that her favourite polish was a gem called 'Borsch'.. I was sort of sad when I didn't see it up on etsy, so I took to e-mailed Tara (aka the creator of Pirate Polish) to do some inquiring.. a few e-mails later, and I was going to be hooked up with four beautiful bottles of polish.


 Look at these beauties! I am in some serious like with all of them.

 

 Before I acquired the other gems, I used Radioactive in a slight gradient mani with Floam.. The pictures do not do the super brightness of the polish any justice, but let me tell you: it is in your face bright and lovely!

And I'm currently sporting 'Leeloo', because, well, how could I not?


 I got to meet Tara briefly yesterday when I picked up the polish.. and I honestly cannot wait to do more business with her. I have used two out of my five Pirate Polish now, and I am quite pleased with them. I am super excited to try the other three now!!

Have you picked up some Pirate Polish yet?? If so, which do you own? I'd like to know so that I can decide on my next purchases!!

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!
