December 1-5 GLADvent Calendar

Hey everyone!

As promised, here is a run down of my advent gifts for December 1-5.. If you have no idea what I am talking about, please visit this post HERE.

 Day 1: A lovely bracelet with an orange-y red butterfly printed bead.. It was mentioned that there was going to be a bracelet with some charms tossed in along the way.. Very cute! It looked so tiny, I didn't think it would first around my wrist.. but it does.. with a wealth of slack. Thank you dainty wrists!

 Day 2: The cutest-miniest-sweetest little baby roller ball of Cranberry Sugar.. cuticle oil.. At least I am assuming it is cuticle oil. That is what I used it as.. if it is a roller ball of perfume.. well.. at least my mitts will smell amazing! The scent is really sweet, which I love. It reminds me of making Kool-Aid as a child. Good times!

Day 3: a bead to join the bracelet - it is an intense abstract design with a multitude of colours. I like it. On to the bracelet is goes!

Day 4: Cat.. tattoos? I believe.. and a bad ass ring! I really, really, reaaaaalllllly like the ring!!

 Day 5: Um.. wait, what!? If Sammy starts doing nail polish as well, I might have to pick up a third job. Or move in to a cardboard box and just use all my savings on living costs to support her store. This is a gorgeous red holo polish. Lord have mercy!


And here we have all the goodies together - week one.. not too shabby! The ring! The polish! That cuticle oil.. love it all! Cannot wait to see what next week brings - yay!

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.
