Countdown To Christmas: CHRISTMAS DAY Nails.. 1 day late.

Hey everyone.

Well. I did it. I failed. I apologize. I allowed my sickness to overcome my will to do my nails. I rocked naked nails for Christmas.. though, I did sleep for basically 18+ hours of the day, sooo not too many people had to see my naked nails. I plan to be better by Saturday aka tomorrow, as that is when I am spending time with my family. Le sigh. I was sick last Christmas, and just did a repeat this year. Lame. Next year I would like zero illness, thanks.

Anyways. On Christmas eve I stopped by a store that my friend manages because.. I felt I needed to give myself another Christmas gift and get some more boots. Found a pair, and then as I was leaving, she mentioned me doing reindeer nails. Now, there are those really fancy Far Isle stag-print reindeer, or cheeky cartoony reindeer. At the time, I didn't ask her to clarify, but, I went with cheeky for today. Plus, my nose would not give me enough time to do anything too lengthy work wise as it needs to be blown every 2.358 minutes. Dumb.

I used THIS PHOTO as my inspiration, and just added a holiday classic nail polish.. which I believe my sister actually bought this one.. I stole it. Sorry Lee-Lee!


I used:
  • China Glaze Party Hearty
  • Essie Little Brown Dress
  • Essie Mink Muffs
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • OPI Coca-Cola Red
  • China Glaze White on White
  • Little brush
  • Dotting tools

Some of my reindeer look a little crazy, but I am quite ok with that. They make me smile.

Thanks for popping in to check out my Countdown to Christmas nail art series, it means a lot. Hope you enjoyed them, and maybe even tried a few yourself.

See you again real soon with another post! I sincerely hope everyone had a great Christmas, no matter how/where/when you celebrate it. Or not. I just hope you had a good festive time. There we go. And, done.

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!
