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!

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!
