Countdown To Halloween: 6 Days

Hey everyone!

Welcome to my own little mini-series.. Countdown To Halloween! I am going to be posting a Halloween-esque nail look everyday right up to Halloween.. mostly because I want to honour my favourite time of year, but also to give any of you some inspiration for nail art that you could potentially rock for Halloween!

To allow this countdown to commence, I decided to do something with the image plate that Nail Polish Canada sent to me. For the past year, one of the reps there has been sending me rad seasonal/holiday BM plates, and I never really use them. I love the whole deal with stamping, but I am horrid at it, so I avoid it as much as possible. But, when I was forming this series idea, I figured why not put that gem plate to use?! So, here goes.


The plate has 6 images, and sadly, I only have 5 fingers on my "photographing hand", so you get 5/6.

I started my nails off with a really amaaaazing ombre using FxFS Flashy and China Glaze Lubu Heels. I then used FxFS White Matter along with BM-H07 and went to town. Again, my stamping skillz leave much to be desired, but I think you get the idea. My absolute favourite is my pinky with the stamp with all the wording. It makes my heart smile!

You can snap up that plate, along with a cacophony of other goodies, HERE.

That is all for Day 7! See you 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…

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

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