TTDIHALC - Day 28 - Match OOTD

Hey everyone!

Well.. here it is.. the prompt that actually gives me anxiety! Why? Well.. I am an advocate of making sure I do not do my nails to match my outfits.. which is never really hard, so to make it match, on purpose.. merrr! BUT! I kept my outfit suuuuper simple (which is why I didn't photograph my full outfit (seriously, black leggings, black cardigan, black tank top.. boring!) and made my nails match my scarf.. that I am obsessed with.


Ugh. This scarf is my life! I got it fairly recently at Aldo.. I had this one in my mitts, then I spotted another one, and asked my BFF which one.. and she was about to hide them behind her back, I got nervous, and told her to give this one back immediately, haha. It is GINORMOUS and suuuuper warm. I love it. Anyways. I figured.. why not do my nails to match that and toss on some red lips too? Yup, done.

Also, can we please see how pale I actually am via my hand? I can add some colour to zee face with contouring/blush.. but my hands.. dead giveaways. Jerks!

Anyways.. I used:
  • China Glaze With Love
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Little brush

I did little lines very sloppily, but I liked that.. and, when I was out running errands.. I did get my nails matching my scarf comments. Hated it.. because I would get that look like 'really...?' and I was like 'yup.. gotta go...' so that is that!

Next post is the last one for this months worth of challenges.. Silver.. ooooh!!!

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!
