Swatch // Fiendish Fancies F.13-04: We’re An Endangered Species

Fiendish Fancies F.13-04: We’re An Endangered Species

You would never guess how many indie polishes I own if you just looked at how many actually got posted on this blog... I am so behind in my swatching! In the interest of cutting my to-swatch list down (and also in the interest in posting my 'Blue' fill for The 30 Days of Colour) today I have one of my indie beauties from Fiendish Fancies!

Nail Art // Nested Heart Tips for a Belated Valentines (oops)

So I am terrible at remembering to do seasonal looks at the right time. Case in point: this was the look I put together for Valentine's Day, but as I'm sure you realize today is NOT Valentine's Day. Haha. Oops? Better late than never! (I feel like I say that a lot.)

When I decided to put this look together I was sitting at my computer desk looking at the pile of polishes scattered around. I do my nails in my living room area but I always lug all the polishes I used into the bedroom so as I type up the post I can remember what everything is called. This results in a huge pile of polish just chillin on my desk that I clear out maybe once a month.

SO for this look I only used polish already on my desk and nothing else. I also started with no real plan so I'm glad what I ended up with was actually pretty good! Go me!

Swatch // Delush Polish Cheers Comes the Sun

One of my favourite parts of getting into indie polishes is getting to experience all the amazingly creative colour combos that various brands have been turning out. This polish for example? You would NEVER see something like this from a mainstream brand, and I LOVE it!

Check out more swatches and info about this gorgeous indie lovely below the cut!

Swatch + First Impressions // Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel

I feel like Avon is one of those companies that I remember hearing about when I was a kid in the way that you would hear about Tupperwear - things that moms would buy and sell to each other and that came in fun little magazines that you could look through to do 'imaginary shopping'. Or was I the only one who did that? Haha.

Anyway, picture my surprise when I started seeing other bloggers sharing beauty products from Avon over the past year or so! I didn't even know Avon was still a thing! So when my mom got me three of their polish shades at Christmas I was like "Hells yes, I'm excited to give these a try!" And what do you know - I was SUPER impressed with them!

Want to hear more? Check below the cut! :)

Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Black: Black Kitty Cat Nails

Meow! Are you a cat person or a dog person? I love a good puppy but I am 100% a cat person! I have two lovable assholes that I live with named Essa and Bean, so when I sat down to do my fifth and final Digit-al Dozen manicure I knew I wanted to go with a black cat theme. (Neither of them are black cats, but that's beside the point haha.)

Take a look at my finished mani below!

Nail Art // The Digit-al Dozen Does Black: The One Where I Glued Pom Poms to My Nails

I mean, the title says it all for this one. Haha. My inspiration dried up a bit and I said to myself: "Why the hell not! Let's glue some pom poms on!"

And you know what? I LOVE it! I remember when this was kind of a thing people were doing for kicks and I thought it was so dumb, but I actually would really love this look if it wasn't so damn impractical! Who would have guessed. :)
