31DC2014 - Day 1 - Red

Hello everyone! The #31DC2014 starts NOW! It was kind of funny this morning, I was going through instagram and was seeing posts about it.. and I am like 'pffht.. it starts tomorrow!' Then I did some quick calculations and realized today aka right now - it is September 1st. Wat?! (Side note: I did mean to type 'wat' and not 'what'.)

Once that realization set in, I hustled out of bed and sprinted to my computer to get my post up. Here goes. Day 1 is the prompt of red. Perfect. Cherry Nails it is!


I first went through and painted a base colour on each nail; thumb, index and pinky all got a solid 1 coat (!!!!) of OPI Coca Cola Red, while middle and ring received 2 coats of Formula X for Sephora White Matter.

Then I started doing the fun stuff. My index finger got a 2 coat treatment of Essie Leading Lady; thumb and pinky got dottified using FxFS White Matter; middle and ring got some cherry activity using OPI Coca Cola Red, Essie Leading Lady, Essie Mojito Madness, and FxFS White Matter. Once I was finished that.. I knew they weren't quite what I wanted. I grabbed my tiny brush and added some Formula X for Sephora Dark Matter dots and felt instantly pleased. Now they were finished!


These are my nails for day 1.. yay! Day 1 down.. 30 more to go! Let's do this!

Take care, and I shall see you all tomorrow!!

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).

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..
