Late Post For The Totally Doable I Have A Life Challenge! Feb 14: Match OOTD

Zoiks.

Hey everyone!

I fell very, very, very behind on blogging. I am extremely sorry for that. This is awkward.

I do plan to finish up posting all of my looks for February. Because I did so bad on February, I am going to skip out on the March challenge - but if there is one for April - I will be ready for it!

How sad is it that all of my photos are edited and ready to be posted up.. I just haven't set aside the time to get a post all typed up. So rough. Usually I procrastinate on the photo readying part. I know, bad me!

So. When I did these nails, I had painted them to match the dress I had planned to wear for Feb. 14. I decided to change my ensemble last minute, and then quickly changed my nails - but at the time - this was the plan.



My dress is from Target - it is that gorgeous blue with floral/bird print on it. So. These were the nails I did to match. I was quite displeased with my floral activity.. but from a distance, they weren't awful.

I used:

  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze Sunday Funday
  • China Glaze With Love
  • China Glaze Lemon Fizz
  • China Glaze Liquid Leather
  • OPI Jade Is The New Black
  • Elevation Polish Tettegouche
  • Dotting Tool
  • Heart Glitter

Yup. I will try to get the rest posted up this week, and then move on to current manis and such. So behind.. !!

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!
