HoHoHoliday Box by Mrs. P's Potions & Soak It!

Hey everyone!

Just a quick post to share with you another holiday type advent box I literally received in the mail this afternoon (I know.. mail delivered on a Sunday?! Win!)

I was so excited to get my mitts on one of these boxes during the sale.. I believe there were 20 or 24 created.. so.. again, the excitement is real!!

The opening started today, the 13th, and will continue until Christmas.

I am super stoked about this because I already love all the products from Tara, who runs Soak It! and I was pumped to try items from Bree, who runs Mrs. P's Products (have always heard rad things, just never gave it a go!)

Shall we get on to the overview of the package and day 1?!

Now.. the package it arrived in was beautifully wrapped - but I was a complete savage and tore in to it immediately.
Ok.. so.. can I just say that I am loving that each day is individually wrapped - and so nicely, at that. Like.. I feel so magical just looking at these. The time and effort is clearly there, and I appreciate it soo much!! Also, my name is spelled correctly on the card. I know, people can say 'well, it is there for them when you order' - tell that to the numerous times I had to send official cards in for the correct spelling of my name - it does mean a lot to me. Just. Saying!


And here is day 1.. er.. 13! I added in the sweet card that was included.. because.. a reindeer in sunglasses? He is my new favourite person.

AND day 1.. 13.. whatever - totally knocks it out of the park. This is a polish that I have heard rad things about previously, and now I have a bottle of my own. This is Mrs. P's Potions in What The Falir?! It is a holographic topcoat.. and I am just.. ahh! Cannot wait to use it. Also, this day includes a little note/poem/ It reads:

It's the first day of Christmas, you want to look good while you shop
When you get to the mall, you want their jaws to drop!
You want to be festive, want your nails to stop traffic
Enjoy this What The Flair?! topcoat, HELLOOOOOO HOLOGRAPHIC!!!

I am seriously hoping that every day will have a little note.

Again, this is some serious effort and just.. it makes my heart smile. I am so excited for the rest of the days!

I think I will dedicate a post daily to this one.. as it is just from now until the 25th. I think I can manage that. Right?!

Wish me luck! And see you tomorrow!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
