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!

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!
