KL Polish Caramello

Hey everyone!

Just a quick post today.. well.. it should be a quick post. Though, I am going to talk about the KL Polish for a moment or 3.

So, I ordered them on pre-order, then there was a whole to-do there - whatever.. they arrived last week - one was sadly broken. The packaging was atrocious. They were in a bubble mailer.. ok, fine, but there was wrapped in tissue paper.. that is it. Like, you couldn't toss some bubble wrap on each bottle as well? Guh. Whatever. I e-mailed them, then are sending a replacement.. it still reeks of polish in this zone.

Now, I have used.. 3 of the polish this far - just haven't posted. The first one I used was Gumption! which is an amazing blue shade - the smell! Oh my god! It smells like.. the nail polish I used to buy in the 90s - the ones filled with all the bad stuff. I have not smelled anything like that in YEARS! I finished painting my nails, doing some nail art.. and the smell didn't go away. I had to take it off. The next polish I used, Snickerdoodle was much less smelly. It was fine. And this one, Caramello doesn't really have a smell. So apparently it is just Gumption! Ugh.

Also.. the brushes.. oh god. The brushes. I know in Kathleen's video she said this was a great brush design, etc.. they are awful. They are weirdly tapered.. but there are random long strands where they are shorter.. and the polish literally just goes everything! Basically, I have to slap polish on EVERYWHERE then do loads of cleaning. Sigh.

The reason I am posting this one, though, is because I really quite like this shade! I figured I might as well share.


I went a little heavy-handed on my faux marble effect - but.. I still like it.

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • KL Polish Caramello
  • Formula X White Matter
  • Essie Licorice
  • Gems
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).
