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!!

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!
