Borsch & Borsch With Sour Cream

Hey everyone!

No.. I'm not going to share my ma's expert Borsch recipe with you all (I say expert according to everyone else.. I'm not a borsch fan.. oops) - but I am going to share two Pirate Polish with you that have those names - that has to count for something!

When I had contacted the owner/creator behind Pirate Polish (Tara), I told her that I was told about this nail polish called 'Borsch' and that I had to get my mitts on it. She said she had some bottles available, they just weren't listed on her shop at the time - awesome! I was going to get one. She then informed me that she had a polish called 'Borsch With Sour Cream' that was to be a new release, etc, etc - would I be interested in that too? Uh. Yeah.

I have had these two gems sitting in my untried drawer some time now.. The other night I was like 'swatch them.. together..' so, I did.



I'm going to snag her description for Borsch: This lacquer has a beet-red base colour (broth), small burgundy glitter and red hexagonal glitter (chunks of beets), and metallic green bar glitter (dill, of course). Please note that the green bar glitter pulls slightly blue-green in the red base, but the intended effect is still achieved. 

And for Borsch With Sour Cream - all of that.. just a lightened base.. you know.. because of the sour cream - I know, I'm quite possibly a genius.

These two gems are a lot of fun - and exactly what I would expect from polish created in the likelihood of borsch!!

I don't see any bottles listed on her shop right meow - but I'm sure more will become available at some point in time.. until then, you can go stalk all the awesome goodies HERE - you've been warned, there are some pretty rad polish available!

Take care until next time!

Ohhh right - and remember to entry my GIVEAWAY going on right now - you still have 8 days to enter!

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.

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…

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!
