Let's Get Mani-wise: Mani Bombs

Hey everyone!

I recently took to my FB page to ask people to help me come up with a name for a little series that I want to start posting time to time, and my rad friend Kimber came up with this name, and I like it, so I will use it! Thanks again Kimber!

Anyways, what I want to talk about in this 'series' are things that I do/use to make my manis even... MORE. Does that make sense? Well, hopefully it sort of does. I am bad at explaining things at times.

Today I want to talk about mani bombs. You have probably seen them around the netz, and that is great! Maybe you have not purchased any yet as they seem confusing? Or maybe you don't 'get them' - understandable!

At first, I figured I didn't need these - I didn't see the point (besides the really rad fizzy activity!), but then I did some research. Did you know that these little bad boys are filled with oils that actually do amazing things for your mitts? Plus, you get to soak your hands in warm water for 5-15 mins.. not really doing anything, and taking in the amazing smells? Then afterwards, you just rub in all the oils and just veg for an additional 30 mins. Umm.. sign me up!

You can take to etsy and search them up - you will probably find a wealth. You really cannot go wrong. I will list two Canadian sellers that I have personally purchased from, and will continue doing so! Cuter Cuticles & Soak It!  (side note: these gals have many rad products listed that I would highly recommend and will chat about at other times - but you cannot make a bad purchase, I promise!)

Or maybe you want to try these gems out, but would rather have more control? You can make your own - want to learn how? Click HERE.

For the photos in this post, I am using a Treasure Mani Bomb from Cuter Cuticles.. umm.. what?! YEAH! Besides getting all the goodness out of using this bomb, you also get a little treasure. Be still my heart!


Love this! I am trying to do a mani bomb every time I do polish removal, but that almost seems too luxurious, so I am doing at least once a week, if not twice. And that ring? Adorbs!

I will be posting about that many a bit later - but for now, enjoy the teaser pic!

Thanks for scoping out this post, see you 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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

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.
