31DC2014 - Day 19 - Galaxies

Hey everyone!

Galaxies as the prompt for the #31DC2014.. no freakin' problem! Honestly.. I think galaxy nails might be my favourite nails to do. I have probably said it 8.5 million times, but there is no way to do these incorrectly, which is what makes them so magical - at least in my eyes!

For this go-round, I used pretty much every nails polish that happened to be littering my desk.. and every nail has a different element of activity going on. Oh, and an extra treat: my right hand. I really liked my thumbs (both hands) and figured why not share all 10 digits and their fun galaxy-ness.


 Side note: you can definitely tell I do not photograph my right hand ever.. I could barely get a decent photo.. the bottom two are the photos I deemed 'ok'.

The polish used:

FxFS Dark Matter
China Glaze White On White
FxFS Eureka
FxFS Indelible
FxFS Radioactive
FxFS Omni
Zoya Arizona
China Glaze Lemon Fizz
China Glaze Fairy Dust

Yup.. that is all that was used. I just would toss a colour on top of all other colours on my sponge piece and keep going to town. Love these!

That is all for today.. see you tomorrow.. for.. watermarble day. Ohhh joy!

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!
