Late Christmas Nails Post

Hey everyone!

I meant to have this post up quiiiite awhile back.. but.. I got busy.. I got sick.. I got excuses. It happens. Lame, I know.

Anyways.

As you all know, I am a HUGE diehard fan of pinterest - specifically for nail polish inspiration.. and I found a real gem!

I love THIS and then it led me to just1nail.. and like.. honestly - amazing. I cannot wait to creepily copy some more of her nail art activity. She does some awesome work!


Though I had to change one thing.. the reindeer had to have a red nose. It was practically begging me to do so.

I love these. A lot.

We will go thumb through pinky on what I used..

Thumb: 2 coats of OPI My Favorite Ornament
Index: 2 coats of China Glaze White on White and black details using Orly Liquid Vinyl
Middle: 2 coats of Formula X for Sephora Thrilling and white details using China Glaze White on White
Ring: 1 coat of Orly Liquid Vinyl, white details using China Glaze White on White, and a dot of Formula X for Sephora Flashy
Pinky: 2 coats of Color Club High Society and black details using Orly Liquid Vinyl

All topped with Seche Vite.

Taking them off was kind of painful.. but.. many polishes to use, many looks to try.. you know the drill!

I hope everyone had a very great holiday season, and is getting all amped up to bring in the new year! I will have another post up later tonight.. then I should probably work on my NYE nails and get those posted tomorrow.. annnd work on my favourite posts of the year post.. I got a bit of work to do!

See you all again.. in a few hours.

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…

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!
