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!

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!

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

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.
