Countdown To Halloween: 4 Days

Hey everyone!!

Soooo.. the post for today is another one that I was going to redo, but then I decided that it isn't that I don't like the outcome, I just don't like that at the time I was sick and had to blow my nose.. and my nails were not quite dry.. BUT.. I also don't mind showing you when mistakes happen - this is my real life.

As I have mentioned many, many times in previous posts - I have an awesome sister and friends who constantly send me rad photos of manis they want me to try - my sister sent me a wealth of photos with manis that I should try to recreate for Halloween. This is one of them. Bloody fingerprints.

Looking back on the whole thing meow, there are a few things.. ok, one thing for sure I would want to try differently.. and that is a. either using a different colour of red, or b. using acrylic paint instead of nail polish. Things to take note of for next year (for myself), or for you right now, if you want to give this a go.

Also. Maybe make sure you do not have a death cold whilst painting your nails.. you will want a solid block of time where you do not have to blow your nose. Seriously. I actually had my nose plugged with tissue, but it really did not help. Dummmb!


I used:
FxFS White Matter
FxFS Flashy

I did a solid coat (or two) on my nails of White Matter, painted some Flashy on my finger, stamped it once on paper, then pressed onto my nails.. I wasn't thrilled with the first go over, so majority of my nails are "double finger stamped".. because I am awesome.

Again, love this whole method, it usually looked amazing - and this is still rad - minus the smudged activity because my nose would not leave me alone. Sigh.

That is all for today -- see you again tomorrow!!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).
