The Totally Doable I have A Life: February Nail Art Challenge 01: Glitter

Hey everyone!

The other day, while perusing through instagram, I saw that Rie of Nails And Noms had posted a photo about this February nail art challenge created by Californails (side note: I was not familiar with her before.. and now I might be kind of obsessed! Amazing blog! Scope it out!!).. I kind of glanced through it.. and then glanced at my nails. After doing some fairly intricate nail activity, only to have it ruined 2 hours later at work, I happened to be sporting a simple mani with glitter accent nails.. what is day 1? Glitter! It was overly fitting.

I obviously meant to have this posted up yesterday, but in the past 48 hours, I have worked more than I had time to sleep or just 'relax', so getting photos and a post up wasn't in my cards until today - I do apologize.


My friend Porter was over the other night.. and whipped off her sock to show me her pedi colour - and she asked if I knew what it was. She said the name was 'Suzy' something - OPI product - and of course it very well could be - but to me it looked super similar to OPI Lincoln Park After Dark. She said she had tried to find the polish for herself, but couldn't, but I showed her LPAD and she said it was quite similar and I know she can readily find this gem polish for herself.

The next day, I did my nails quite rad-ly, but ruined them at work within 2 hours.. fun times. When I got home I was like 'ehhh polish and glitter and done.. but what combo?' I immediately thought of LPAD and then butter London The Black Knight. And this was born.

Subtle, but gorgeous. And these photos were taken literally 10 minutes ago.. these gems made it through my crazy work schedule!

See you all again for day 4!!

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.
