Clowning Around

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you a post that I wouldn't normally want to share.. but what has happened has been very strange to me.. and I'm also kind of wondering if it has happened to any one else before.


Notice the bubbles? They didn't show up until day two of wear. Seriously. And, there wasn't too many.. this photo was taken on day four of wear. Lots of bubbling - and, if you look at some of the glitters (like the neon yellow on my pinky) the polish underneath is being eaten away.. Weird?


Again, just all the bubbling. I am not sure what happened.. Or if it was just a bad mix all around? I found this very strange because usually I'm a "speedster" when it comes to nail polish/nail art. I don't ever wait for things to dry. This time, I waited in between coats of the base white, waited for it to dry completely, then added some Clowning Around, then waited for that to dry, and then used my top coat. I don't know if I should try my normal method next time.. So strange. Though from far away, it is adorable and super summer-y.

I used two coats of China Glaze White on White, a coat of Lush Lacquer Clowning Around, and topped it all off with Seche Vite.

Oh, and it looks awesome when glow bowling.


Has this ever happened to any of you? Bubbling a day or two after application? And the polish being eaten away?

Hey - love this look!! How old is your topcoat? I find when my topcoat starts to get a little old and is gumming up a bit, it will cause delayed bubbling. Try some new topcoat for your next mani and it should be ok! I think heat can make that worse too.

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

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).
