The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge 2014

Hey everyone!

I know I have been a smidge absent lately, but I am gearing up for some intense postage, yes, that is correct - I am going to give another go at The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I have tried a few times over the past year, and if my memory serves me correctly.. I don't think I have ever successfully completed it. 2014 is my year! At least that is the mind set I am going with. I am quite looking forward to it this time.. also.. I am trying to be super organized as September is going to be a very busy month -- increase in work hours, a couple weddings (a few? there is 3.. 2 on the same day) and I am sure some party activities in there as well. Phew. It will all be worth it! And, like I said, I am trying to be organized - I have been doing some drawings to give me ideas for the actual days. Yay!

If you're interested in doing it as well, or just want to scope the layout, check out the photo. I know for sure Chalkboard Nails is doing it, and probably a wealth of others! Make sure to check around using the hashtag #31DC2014. I am even going to try and keep my postings on instagram as well. I was having a convo with my parents about my blog the other day - I told them I really lack in my social media-ing, and I plan to amp that up. Wish me luck?


Start checking back on September 1st! There is one post I would like to get up before the madness starts.. but I still have to create the nail look.. it is something kind of rad! Ok.. we shall see if I can squeeze it in in the next couple of days.

See you all 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!
