Whisper Down Delainie + Giveaway!

Hello everyone!

A few months ago, I helped out with an Indiegogo Campaign for Joyful Noise Cosmetics - and I chose the 'Name A Product After Me' perk. Now, with this type of perk, I really have no say in the product or what will be named after me.. I just told the awesome owner/creator Laura that I would prefer it to be nail polish. Not only did she name an awesome polish after me.. It is legitimately something that I would ask to be created. Wait until you see it!



Look at that glittery goodness!! Laura lists it as being "an array of pink, teal, and green holographic glitters in small and medium sizes". Sounds pretty good to me. AND! She called it 'Whisper Down Delainie' (side note: she spelled my name correctly.. I will forever be grateful for that - you have no idea how difficult my name proves to be for people!! It is the 'i's, I know). You can get your mitts on a bottle HERE.. Or you can scope out my giveaway activity at the bottom of this blog post.. yeah, that is correct - I am giving away a bottle of this sweet, sweet gem!!!





I included some out-of-focus shots to show off the amazing glitter activity.. -swoon-

My pinky has uno coat of WDD, ring has deux, middle and index have three, and I believe my thumb has four coats of WDD. It is just delightful!

Want to try and win a bottle of my namesake polish? Well, have at it!

When the polish was released - Laura contacted me to let me know.. So I ordered a bottle immediately - though she did say she wanted to send me a bottle as well.. I told her if she sent an extra bottle, I'd use it for a rad giveaway, so thank you muchos Laura!! 

I will put in a sidenote - the giveaway is open to everyone around the globe - but I want my overseas followers to know that I only have a 50% success rate with packages I have sent across the world.. So, I cannot guarantee that it will make it.. but here is to hoping, right?!

The giveaway runs from RIGHT MEOW (July 6) until Friday, July 19 at 11:59 PM EST.

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!
