Terrazzo Inspired Nails

 Hey everyone! Will speed-race past a whole 'sorry I have been away' write-up and just go straight to the goods. I apologize in advance for my VERY dry cuticles (I cleaned up as much as I could in edit mode.. but, still bad) - I have been applying oil and lotions multiple times per day for.. weeks.. and.. no beneficial results, sadly. I went with terrazzo print inspired nails for this go-round. I started with a base coat, then OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI, then, using the brush for the each nail polish, I went in with: OPI Suzi Shops & Island Hops, OPI Sailing & Nail-ing, OPI Amazon...Amazoff, China Glaze Liquid Leather, China Glaze Sweet Hook, Essie Chinchilly, Color Club Je Ne Sasi Quoi, and Sally Hansen White On - then finally topped with Seche Vite. I am hoping to slowly creep back into regularly posting new content here - so, stay tuned!

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone! I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now! I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art. I used: Essie First Base Base Coat OPI Don't Touch My Tutu! Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection) Orly Liquid Vinyl Gold Flake Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat That is all for now - have an excellent day!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone! Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed! I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That. I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Butter London Ta-ta! Sally Hansen White On! Dotting Tool Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a

Pastel Nail Braids

Hey everyone! Sadly, when I was getting the photos ready for this post, I had little cat hairs on almost every photo.

These nails use 3 of the shades. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat OPI Meet A Boy Cute As Can Be OPI Pink Ladies Rule The School OPI Was It All Just A Dream?
