31DC2013 - 06 - Violet

Hey everyone!!

I know, I know.. I'm a day late! I seriously thought I had this all set up and ready to post for yesterday, but apparently I only dreamed that.. I don't think I'm the only one that wishes that dreams were our realities.. right?!

Anyways!

I did something really simple for violet day.. and I don't even know if I would consider this 'violet', so it is more so just 'purple' nails. I found THIS (side note: the image only took me to makeupalley.com, it didn't take me to a person, so if anyone happens to know who this image belongs to/can give me a direct link, that would be awesome!) image via pinterest, and I had 2/3 polish mentioned and was like 'this is stunning, I want to see this in person', so that is exactly what I did.


This is one coat of OPI Casino Royale (which I forgot what an amazing polish it was.. that is one thing that is rad about the challenge, busting out colours that you haven't used in awhile/might have forgotten about!), then I put a coat of Wet n Wild Back Alley Deals on top of that and one coat of Max Factor Fantasy Fire on top of that.

If I didn't do this at night, you would have got some sunlight photos.. this trio of polish makes for a really stunning layered experience.

That is all for toda- oh, wait, you're getting two posts today.. see you again REAL soon with another post!!

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).

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!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
