Purple on Purple

Hey everyone!

I have to apologize for stopping my Halloween posts - I had two severe nail breaks, and since then.. my nails have been an absolute nightmare. FUN! I don't mind doing nail art on short nails, but my nails are also doing this new thing where they either keep breaking or chip/peel within a few hours.

BUT! What I have been doing is going through my collection and just painting my nails. I discovered a shade the other day that I have literally had for 6 years.. never used it.. am obsessed with it.. so, I might as well share those with you for now.

Today, though, I did run by Winners and found some real steals. Two of which I am sporting on my nails.

I found a Marc Jacobs polish for $5. Five bucks.. seriously?! Zoiks! And this other gem for like.. $2.99 to use on top. Shall we?


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Marc Jacobs Ultraviolet 
  • Mineral Fusion Meteor Shower
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Ok. The Marc Jacobs polish.. I am glad it was only $5, not its actual price tag.. because.. it was nice and buildable, but I wasn't wow'ed by the formula. But hey, glad to have it! And this topper.. fun.. but even with a thick coat of Seche Vite, they are still.. catching. Good combo though. They pair well together.

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

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…

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!
