Blue Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

I know I have the inspiration photo of this saved on my phone (somewhere) - I will get the username/IG account and put it here when I have my phone with me. Ugh.

Anyways! Super easy to do, I had to add a smidge of pizazz to my take - of course.

Essie Going Guru Marble

Hey everyone!

I am pretty sure earlier in the year, I said that marble nails would be my "thing" for the next while.. I feel like that was completely accurate. I always want to marble every colour.

Now, no, not water marbling - my arch-nemesis - just diluting white across the nail, and then a stronger, thinner, white stripe  through it. Easy and effective!

I was looking at the nail polish still strewn about my desk from the last Shoppers Gala I worked and was like 'oh hello beautiful green polish.. shall we?' And we did.

Grunge Marble Nails

Hey everyone!

Long time, no see. I know. To be honest, I have just been very uninspired lately. I literally slap on a single colour, and just move on with my life. Let them chip badly. I have just been feeling 'so blah'.

Until I saw THESE NAILS by NAILTHOUGHTS and I was like 'those are pretty, allow me to make them.. grunge-y!'

I made sure to really drag my brush into the polish once I was done, even with the top coat - I really wanted it to look mooshed together and just.. streaky, and.. grunge-y, and I am very pleased with my results!


I know these won't be for everyone, but I LOVE them!

Brush Stroke/Square Dots

Hey everyone!

Tonight I have some.. square dot nails? Brush stroke nails? I have no idea what to call them - but hey! I did a thing and wanted to share.

I took inspiration from Shannon Rae aka Coffeeandnailpolish via IG (THIS PHOTO) and just.. went with it. Plus I had to add some pizazz to it.. because, me.


After I did 2 coats of my base colour.. I waited until it was dry sort of tacky, and used a brush to just.. place a small swipe of colour. Super technical here.

Rose Quartz Nails

Hey everyone!

Ok, so, I have seen, via IG, that the new nail "trend" is rose quartz nails.. so I took a stab at it. Not sure if I totally did it correctly.. but.. I am pretty jazzed about the results!


Yay? Nay? It is something you will test out?

I went with 2 layers of my main polish, then sponged on some white polish (very lightly), then another layer of main, then some acetoned white, another main layer, then a stronger (but still acetoned) white lines.. I am pretty obsessed.

Floral Nails

Hey everyone!

These were the nails I sported last weekend - particularly for my best friend's birthday. We did a high tea service, and I specifically went with Funkified Nails post HERE because they reminded me of her.

I just finished putting away every stray bottle of nail polish back on to my shelf.. so I cannot remember what all was used here. It was a lot. I am sorry!


Love these! They just scream my best friend's name.

Also, kind of a side note - I am kind of thinking of starting to post more make-up related activity to my blog as well. It is another major interest of mine.. and I figure I might as well blog about it as well. My goal is to start doing youtube vids, but one step at a time. Hopefully that will be ok.

Have a rad day -- see you all again soon!

80s St. Patrick's Day Nails

Hey everyone!

So.. I inadvertently created 80s-esque St. Patrick's Day nails. Now, I was going to remove them and try to make something more.. pretty.. but let's be real here: I love the 80s vibe. They get to stay!


 I started by doing triangle chunks of colour - based off of a photo from IG. Then.. I was going to add a third colour of chunks, but went with glitter mini-stripes, and dots to top it all off. I just.. yup.
