Did I do that? The answer is I don't know.

It's kind of funny because I have a bunch of photos just sitting here on my laptop and I have no clue if I posted them before or not. Mainly because I have just been picking and choosing whichever one piqued my interest, and not going in any order. So my apologies if I repeat!

You know what I have been liking a lot recently. Chocolate. I have honestly never been a chocolate person, but ever since I got my hands on the Lindt Chocolate Bunnies I can not stop. Apparently chocolate has a similar effect on the brain as opium, and according to my research a lot more tasty and fun.

Anyway here are some cookie nails I did with the help of Robin Moses's Cookie Monster tutorial. I don't remember for sure what the red polish is right now, but I think it's OPI's Got The Blues for Red, and everything else is acrylic paint.

China Glaze: We've Got The Beet

I'll be honest, for over the past year or so I haven't been into buying new polish. It's rare I find anything that stands out. I find most new polishes I see unoriginal, so I was really please to see this polish. For the first time in a long time I was excited. It's a shame that feeling didn't last long.

I'm honestly not sure how I feel about this polish. We've Got The Beet is a beautiful magenta shade from China's Glaze's 2016 Summer Lite Brites collection(*I KNOW* I'm reviewing something that's current!). It leans purple (but photographs more purple then it actually is irl) with mostly gold/copper-ish flecks. The formula is like wet lime plaster, and it takes 3 careful coats for total opacity, and the dry time is tedious. On the plus side like lime plaster it does seem to last eons on the nail. In the photos the manicure is 5 days old.

I'm glad I got the teeny tiny bottle for now. Pretty colour, tragic formula. Maybe I will get the full size bottle one day when it inevitably goes on sale somewhere.

Better late than never!

So I have my Easter nails for you today. Generally for Easter I like doing something crazy, but this year I didn't have it in me. So Instead I just went with pretty(which is just as good). These nails were inspired by the Lindt gold Easter bunny. The week leading up to Easter I ate so many of the tiny ones. SO. MANY. It was to the point where I thought I had thrown out all my years of being retentively healthy out the door. But it was so hard to stop when they were free. Also it's a fact that everything tastes 100% better when it's free.

For this manicure I used China Glaze's Ruby Pumps for the base and Mingle With Kringle for the gold. And I used striping tape to get those sexy crisp lines. The bow was a sticker I got from Born Pretty Store.

Nails with the bunnies! (Sorry for the crappy photo with a strange filter that I thought looked good at the time)
