Countdown To Halloween 2015: Day 4

Hey eveyone!

Today you are getting day 4 and 3.. I forgot to get this prepared yesterday.. and then I got caught up doing my nails and really needing sleep. Blah. So! woke up early today so I could just get these posted (plus, despite having like 10 hours to sleep, I probably only slept for 4 - and not 4 hours together, an hour here, 45 mins here, etc, great night!)

Anyways!

I promised something cheeky for day 4.. I figured I would share the costume that I most want to see on Halloween.. ready for it?! Left shark.

Remember him?

I know some of you might be like 'what?' but Left Shark has his hot minute of fame following the halftime show at the Superbowl.. I thought he was fantastic.

I don't even mind if I don't see two people dressed as sharks together, as long as I can see a shark costume and they announce themselves to be 'Left Shark', I will be floored!

Chalkboard Nails posted this immediately after Left Shark became a thing, so I just went with that.

Enjoy!


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Zoya Pippa
  • Nails Inc Baker Street
  • Formula X for Sephora White Matter
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Polished for Days Shark Bait
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

And in case any of you forgot about Left Shark or have no idea what I am talking about, scope THIS VIDEO.

Ok, now to work on post two for today.. awe yeah!

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!
