Epic Nail Fail, and a Quick e.l.f. Haul



Do you have days where no matter what you do, you just can’t pull your stuff together?  I tried so very hard to get a nail look up for today.  I attempted water marbling for the first time last night.  I don’t know what I did wrong, but EPIC FAIL.  Seriously, I tried for two hours with half my nail polish collection and just couldn’t get it to work.   I couldn’t get the drops to spread, I couldn’t make designs without pulling the whole thing loose… I couldn’t do anything.  Finally, I had no choice but to admit defeat.  I didn’t even bother painting my nails at all, I was so disappointed.  They sit there, mocking me with their nakedness.  Stupid nails.  Stupid polish.  Stupid water marbling.  *sigh*

Since my nail post didn’t pan out, instead I have a quick post to show off my most recent e.l.f. haul.  I actually got this stuff a couple weeks ago, but am just getting around to posting.  Items to take note of are the e.l.f. studio blush in Candid Coral, the eyebrow treat & tame, the new zit-zapping concealer, and finally, finally, I got the Beauty on-the-go palettes.  I’ve been wanting these palettes for months and months, but never got around to purchasing.  These will definitely be popping up in a review, as well as the other items that I mentioned.

I have several reviews planned, but life keeps getting in the way.  You know how it is.  It seems that I have got a lot on my plate right now.  Watch this space, though, for my review on the Balm Nude ‘tude that I’ve been promising, as well as more NYX, Wet n Wild, Eco Tools, and the stuff I’ve shown in my latest hauls coming at you soon.  I’ll also be featuring my very first guest post!  So stay tuned for a lot more to come.


About beautyinbudgetblog

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.

  1. I am sad that your nails are mocking you. I hate when they do that. LOL Love the idea of a beauty on the go, but for some reason I always feel the need to carry almost all the make up I own. I Don’t even wear that much makeup and 90% of the time I reach for the same liner and lipstick. Subconsciously I must be wanting to do some drop in clubbing on the way to the grocery store. haha yeah that’s it.

  2. When the polish doesn’t spread easily, I’ve noticed it’s usually because the water is too cold 🙂 Maybe that’s what was happening?? Either way, water marbling can be a big pain, I know. lol
