Multicoloured Leopard Print

Hey everyone.. long time, no post - I know. Fail.

I honestly think the 31 Day Challenge wore me right out. That, and life. How about a mix of both? Yeah, let's go with that!

I am bringing you some nail art today that I did.. two sleeps ago! I got muchos compliments on them, and was even told that jamberry has nail wraps just like this. I was looking around my room the other night, and saw my little bins that I keep brassieres and scarves in (not mixed.. separate, of course) and I had done a look based off of those bins many moons ago (you can scope HERE) and figured I would do it again.. because.. it would look fun! I was correct.


I used:
China Glaze White On White
China Glaze Lemon Fizz
FxFS Radioactive
OPI Can't Find My Czechbook
FxFS Eureka
FxFS Brazen
FxFS Dark Matter
Dotting Tool

This honestly took 5 minutes to do, but it looks rad, and makes me happy!

That is all for today.. I will be back with some posts starting on up on Saturday and leading all the way up to Halloween - they will be fun Halloween nail looks that you could do for Halloween.. or anytime, really. I absolutely love Halloween, so why not do a wealth of nail art to celebrate this glorious time? Then, on Halloween, I will post up the nails I will be sporting.. should be amazing - mostly because I have no idea what I will post nail art-wise yet. Yay!

31DC2014 - Day 31 - Honour Nails You Love

Hey everyone!

I MADE IT!

-Deep, collective, amazing sigh-

So happy. So fun. Sort of stressful?

Anyways! I am going to save a reflective post for tomorrow.. not today! One more post.. honour nails you love. Easy. These nails have gorgeous colours, and polka dots. And.. they are matte.. weird, for me, but these are sososososo lovely!

Scope them HERE.


I used:
Color Club High Society
OPI My Vampire Is Buff
China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer
China Glaze Bottoms Up
Essie Matte About You

I do apologize for the tip wear.. one day of work just destroys mattified nails, apparently. Who knew?! I wish I had used a slightly light shade for the base, but hey - you win some, you lose some, and this is mostly a win. So pretty!

Well, see you all tomorrow (hopefully) for a nice reflective post. Huge round of applause to all those that gave the 31 Day Challenge a go for 2014. You're all amazing!

31DC2014 - Day 30 - Inspired By A Tutorial

Hey there!

Yesss! All caught up!

I kind of love me some mrcandiipants nail posts.. and I quite like her vids as well. I used one of her vides to create this very simple, yet amazing mani.


 I used:

OPI My Vampire Is Buff
Sally Hansen Pacific Blue
Color Club High Society

Love. So simple, but the colours are gorgeous and I did have many gals comment on these gems. I always find that compliments = effective nail art. Win!


31DC2014 - Day 29 - Inspired By The Supernatural

Siiigh.

This prompt of the #31DC2014 kills me. My amazing bff gave me some rad ideas, but I honestly could just do any of them to save my life. I was finally like 'what is a cheapy, easy bit of nail art that I could label as 'supernatural'..'

The Nightmare Before Christmas.


Ehh... Just let this slide, ok?

I used:
FxFS White Matter &
FxFS Dark Matter.

31DC2014 - Day 28 - Inspired By A Flag

Hello again!

For this one.. I went to my "roots".. and.. a place that I would love to visit! My bff, her sister, and their mother (who happens to come from this flag place) went there this past summer.. and just looking at the photos is magical! I can live vicariously through their trek, until I can maybe get myself there some time.


It is supposed to look German-flag-esque.. though I feel a little bad that I didn't have a more golden yellow. I had the perfect one in mind, but I might have given that one to my ma. Oops! Thought that counts?

I used FxFS Flashy
FxFS Dark Matter
Sinful Colors Unicorn

31DC2014 - Day 27 - Inspired By Artwork

Hey again..

I, as I almost always do, took to pinterest for this prompt of the #31DC2014.. and came across THIS gem. Did it translate to nail art very well.. not for me.. but.. it is kind of neat? And please do not be too harsh on me for the horrendous "birds", they really are not my forte.



I used:

FxFS White Matter
FxFS Dark Matter
China Glaze X-Ta-Sea
China Glaze Dune Our Thing

yeeah.. again.. not the best translation into nail art (for my skillz), but I am not completely upset about them.

31DC2014 - Day 26 - Inspired By A Pattern

Hey everyone!

Sorry I got behind on posts here.. believe it or not, I did have my nails painted everyday for these prompts.. I honestly lost track of days, and of what I had to edit photo-wise.. today while I was at work I was like 'wait.. it is September 30th.. uhhh.. waaat?' So yeah. A small handful of posts coming your way right meow!!

For my #31DC2014 inspired by a pattern nails, I took to one of my fave sites: pinterest.. and found THIS.. simple.. green.. effective.


I used:

China Glaze White On White
Essie Mojito Madness
Lime Crime Pastelchio
FxFS Radioactive

Again, simple, fun.. effective!
