Blue Marble Nails

Hey everyone!

My obsession with marble-esque nails continues to this year. I do not see it stopping any time soon.

I went a different route with this one - I kept topping the layers with a thin sheer polish to soften/blur everything. I like it. This is LOOSELY based off of the work from NailThoughts.

Rad Pizza-esque Nails

Hey everyone!

Welcome to 2018.. and to kick it all off.. these sort of.. pizza.. inspired nails? That wasn't my intent, I literally had this thought whilst driving, and wanted to do it.. but looking at the photos, I thought: pizza. Maybe because I am doing this whole low carb thing and desperately want pizza? Who knows.. anyways!

Orly Vintage Snowflakes

Hey everyone!

I was going for a sort of.. snowflake in the night-sky look that I have sort of done before.. but I just really wanted to use two of my new nail polish - specifically Orly Vintage (which I have wanted for awhile!)

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!

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?

Ok. The Marc Jacobs polish.. I am glad it was only $5, not its actual pr…

Countdown to Halloween 2017: Cute Ghosts

Hey everyone!

Something a little less 'scary' for today.. unless you count how dry my cuticles are.. I will show myself out.

Back in 2015, I did a recreation of some nails that TinyTangereines had done.. and I went with that again.. but just full out cute ghosts. And some glam dots.. because, me.
