MerMAN, dad, merMAN

Hey everyone!

When I received a wealth of nail mail a few weeks back, these two screamed a mermaid scale mani with the little nail charms I had also received.. the only itty-bitty-teeny-baby issue?

Not enough contrast.

Whoops!

Thought that counts, right.. right?!

I still think these look exquisite.. but hey, I am slightly biased (and also my own worst critic, but I digress)

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Girly Bits Dreaming Tree (can be purchased HERE)
  • KBShimmer I've Seen Sweater Days (can be purchased HERE)
  • My Nails Did Mermaid Scale Vinyls (can be purchased HERE
  • Starfish Nail Charm (sent to me from LadyQueen - link on sidebar w/ 15% off code!!)
  • Random Nail Pearls
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I honestly love everything about this - minus the fact that you cannot really make out the scale-age (needed more contrast..) BUT! Still rad - and, I managed to keep it on for 3-5 days (cannot quite remember) and I took them off  BEFORE I picked off any of the goodies.. yeah.. so, go me!

Have a great day - 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.

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.
