Dim the Lights.. It's Floral Time!

Hey everyone!

Haha.. uhhh.. my post title is killing me right now. My pals and I (my sister in particular) use the 'dim the lights...' line a lot, but originated from 'Road Trip', and it definitely does not end with 'it's floral time', but it is cheeky and I am going with it.

We have been having some very strange weather lately - yes, even for the prairies in Canada. We had a dream January (we had days that were above 0.. we had melting in January), which led to some extreme temperature lows in February, but compared to some winters, I almost feel like this was a cakewalk for a winter. And, it is intense how quick the turn around in temperatures have been. -30c on Saturday overnight.. and then up to -2c on Monday.. oh.. ok weather. Let's do this!

Because of these 'balmy' temps, I think of spring, and spring makes me think floral.. so.. here are my first set of floral nails for 2015.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • butter London Trout Pout
  • China Glaze White on White
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament
  • OPI Chillin' Like A Villain
  • OPI Cajun Shrimp
  • Nails Inc Queen Victoria Street
  • Color Club Twiggie
  • Little Brush
  • Dotting Tools
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I just really wanted to use Trout Pout again.. haven't used that gem in awhile. Then I decided to stay in the colour family for the flowers (roses?) and Chillin' Like A Villain and Cajun Shrimp fit the bill. Love these. Oh, and I needed gold in there just because.

Got a wealth of compliments on these.. and many thought they were jamberry (that is my fave kind of compliment) and a wealth of people lately have been telling me to start doing gel/acrylics.. who knows.. maybe some year I will learn?

That is all for today! See you all again soon!!

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.
