Countdown To Halloween: HALLOWEEN!

Heeeeey everyone!

It is finally herrrrre! YAY! Halloween - Happy Halloween to anyone reading this!

Today I share with you the nails I will be sporting for this tremendous day.. they are a take on nails I did in 2012.. and my most popular re-pin via pinterest.. You can scope those HERE.

I actually ended up redoing 4 nails on my 'photo hand' because they just were not.. grotesque enough for my liking. I was cool with my pinky.. but the others needed.. more. I also decided to skip top coat on the go over.. except for on the bloody wounds.. they needed that glossy, or in this case, oozy look.

These nails make my twisted heart smile.

Enjoy?



I used:
  • FxFS Flashy
  • FxFS Dark Matter
  • Color Club Nomadic In Nude
  • Color Club Red-ical Gypsy
  • China Glaze Trendsetter
  • China Glaze Mahogany Magic
  • ...and my finger.

Ugh. So good! So pleased!

Oh, and this is my "look" for Halloween.


I based it off of THIS youtube video. This was my trail run. I know the things I want to tweak to my likings, but I am fairly pleased!

I hope everyone has a safe and amazing, and most importantly: fun, Halloween!

Annnd.. tell me in the comments - what kind of nails are you rocking for this glorious day??

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!
