Countdown To Halloween: 5 Days

Hey everyone!

I meant to have this post up muchos earlier today.. but then I was looking it over.. I just wasn't overly thrilled with the nails. So, I decided to watch a random horror flick via netflix. Near the end of this sad horror flick, I was looking beyond the characters at the wallpaper behind them. And it hit me: the bloody wallpaper look needed cheery wallpaper with blood splatters, duh!


Here is what I used:
  • FxFS Infatuated
  • FxFS Brazen
  • FxFS Unmistakable 
  • FxFS White Matter
  • m73
  • FxFS Flashy
  • Straw

I have to say, I did love my other Bloody Wallpaper look (see it HERE), but this.. this is more disturbing in my eyes.. because it seems like it should be so cheery, and then oh hey, blood!

I think my tip for anyone wanting to do Halloween nails, but doesn't really know what to do, or doesn't have a wealth of time on their hands.. grab a straw, grab some red polish or paint, and go to town - even over your existing mani.. Blood splatter makes anything seem a tad creepy.. and I want to keep Halloween creepy!

Enjoy -- 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.

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.
