December 6-12 GLADvent Calendar Goodies

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you some more of my GLADvent calendar goodies. Shall we look at the goods all together, then break them down? Yes, splendid idea!


Ahh just looking at this spread of awesomeness is making my heart smile! Let's have a little chit-chat about the beauts before your eyes.

 Day 6 - YASSSS! Finally a mani bomb! Each day last week I was did a mini-chant of 'manibombmanibombmanibomb' in my head.. and I mean, I am not complaining about the items from last week.. but this was a great kick off to the week ahead!

 Day 7 - a dangly snowflake charm for the bracelet. At first, I was all amped thinking it was a star.. then I saw that it was a snowflake, and I was suddenly even more excited. I just like snowflakes, ok. Not snow, but the individual flakes I am cool with.

 Day 8 - a crystal nail file - my favourite type of file.. going straight to my purse!

 Day 9 - YASSSSSSSSSSSSS!! MORE CUTICLE OIL! Gingerbread Latte.. be still my sweet baby heart! I am OBSESSED with this scent. I am really glad that I ordered a large barrier butter in this scent. Nomnomnom.

 Day 10 - Wait.. is she.. going to.. start.. carrying lotion as well?! This literally might be my new favourite smell of all time. It has always been the smell of almond extract.. but this.. basically blew my shorts off. Magical! Side note: I do tend to have some sensitivity to lotions - and if it is going to be a bad reaction, it happens instantly. My mitts and I are safe. This is the greatest news.

Day 11 - YASSSSS yet again. An appearance of My Nails Did Vinyls. For serious?! This is freaking awesome! This is a rad variety stencil sheet.. I am dying. I am so excited to use them! I know you cannot tell from the photos, but there is a Christmas Tree, Candy Cane, Snowflake, Snowman, and star shapes.. then these like.. diamond patterns.. and.. light strands. YAY!


Day 12 - OOOOOO YASSSSS! Another mani bomb to close out the week!? HELL YEAH! This has been an exquisite week. Now I just want to rip open the remaining satchels.. must. refrain.

Thanks for tuning again.. I cannot wait to share with you the remaining 12 bags! Yay! 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.
