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).

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.
