For Ben

Hey everyone!

So, a couple of weeks back, whilst I was extremely sick (ok, laryngitis, so I didn't feel the worse, I just had no voice, a super sore throat, and painful coughing fits), I was working my way through the complete set of Sex & The City during my time off from work. One of the afternoons, when I was feeling particularly sorry for myself, I decided that I would go get Ben from his cage and make him watch copious amounts of episodes with me.

The only problem was.. Ben had passed away :(

The pain was so real. I think that when you have any type of pet that has been around you for years, and years, and years, it hurts so bad. Even if the pet isn't a conventional one. And even though Ben is like.. the size of a dog paw, the pain was immense.

The next day, I was starting to feel a smidge better health-wise and had returned to work.. so that evening I decided to do some nail art. The nails were just.. perfect.. but I felt like something was missing - so I added a shiny-glittery 'B' that I knew Ben would approve of.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Essie Off Tropic
  • Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet
  • Saran Wrap
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament
  • Small Brush
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


And just in case any one forgot about how handsome Ben was, here is your reminder.

That is all for today! Hope you all have a rad day, and be sure to give your pets an extra snuggle today!!

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.
