Summery Dry Brush

Hey everyone!

I know I have not quite nailed down the whole dry brush technique, but I am definitely having a wealth of fun trying to master it. I decided to go with a very summery palette the other day and was not really sure what I was going to do.. then this happened.. then some glitter top coats got involved.. basically it was a fuster cluck (see what I did there?) though I do quite like it.


I am the worst person alive.. I put away all the polish I used already. Siiigh. I do know that China Glaze White on White was my base.. and I know China Glaze Lemon Fizz and butter London Jaffa was used. I also know the two glitter top coats: Essie Set In Stones & Hard Candy Mom & Pop.

Actually, looking at this.. I would say China Glaze Heli-Yum was also involved. I think that might be all the polish. Thank you, brain, go rest now.

I actually suffered a nail break yesterday.. I was going to keep my longer nails for a bit.. but I had not worn polish in about 5 days.. so.. my nail was like 'here is your punishment, jerk!' and I had to accept that. Back to short nubs again - yay!

See you all again 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).

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.
