Neon Skulls Turned Unhappy Faces

Hey everyone!

Wow. I have been away from the blogging life for awhile now. I have not enjoyed my "break". Work, work, and living out of the hospital for a week in there has not helped anything. (side note: living at the hospital was not for me.. my boyfriend broke his elbow.. he needed surgery.. we lived in hospital.. well, he did.. I did part time, the other time was spent at work or not sleeping. Good times!)

Anyways.

I have some backlogged posts to get through. During my awful hospital-filled week, I did not paint my nails. I just picked that up again yesterday.. but I believe I have 4 posts to do before we get to the current activity. Should be caught up by the end of next week.. aka.. my birthday! Awe yeah!

I always get so off track.

Many weeks back, as I normally do, I sent a text to my sister asking her what I should paint on my nails. Her response this particular time was for me to do rainbow skulls. The idea = rad, but I have not painted skulls on my own nails in a long time. A nightmare ensued. Then, when all was done, at first - hated them.. but then.. ehhh they weren't too bad and it was 1 am, and work in the morning, etc etc. I left them.

One of the gals at work said they looked like unhappy faces.. and I liked that so much more! My subpar skull nails turned into awesome unhappy face nails. Life miraculously went on.


A wealth of polish was used.. and, much to my happiness and dismay, I have not put any of them away yet. Here goes:

  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • China Glaze White On White
  • Essie Lights
  • L'Oreal Tangerine Crush
  • China Glaze Sunday Funday
  • China Glaze Lemon Fizz
  • Formula X For Sephora Wham!
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

So bad. So fun.

That is all for today! See you again reeeeal soon!!

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!
