31DC2013 - 09 - Rainbow

Hey everyone!

I was wracking my brain trying to decide how I wanted to go about rainbow nail day.. make legit rainbows, skittles, splatter, gradient, lines - I just couldn't decide. THEN I remembered I had received a package from Incoco the other day.. and they had sent me a pack of really neat rainbow chevron nail polish strips. Sold!


Just look at these! Sososososo pretty!

I have to admit.. These are hands down the easiest nail polish strips I have used. I had zero issues - other than the one I normally have, where all of the strips are too big.. but these strips were easy to manipulate without ruining them - I didn't have to pre-cut, I just applied them, then worked away the excess width. Worked very easily!

The strips I used here are 'Zig' and you can find them along with many, many other rad designs over on the website - incoco.com

I was sent some other really fabulous strips - and I think I can even use another set at some point in this challenge.. and they are amazing! I cannot wait to share them with you all. If you're someone who likes nail polish strips or you know someone that does, and they haven't tried Incoco yet - MAKE THEM TRY these strips! I can honestly say this was the easiest set I have applied to date.. and I kind of, reallyreally, like that!

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!
