America's Suitehearts

Well, it isn't just THAT song, it is the South Rakkas Remix. A random fact, I always promised my sister that if they (being Fall Out Boy) ever came even remotely close to Saskatoon, I would get us concert tickets. On August 1 we will see them in concert, and we don't even have to travel as they are coming HERE! Yay! Anyways, on with the nail stuff eh.

As I have mentioned in a few posts, I have been taking a lot of shifts within the dishpit at work (I kind of like doing dishes.. weirdo I know) but I do them with nail polish on most of the time. Sometimes it stays on, other times I can peel it off no big deal. I figured this had to do with the yellowing of my nails, but the same thing is happening to my sister. We were not impressed considering we use base coat and everything.. One of our coworkers figured it was because we take off our polish, we repaint with something else. That is moreso true about my sister, I usually wait a day or two if I have no work/nothing important to do.

SO! I see this package sitting on the table on Saturday night..

But I didn't ask her about it until last night.. So she saw I wasn't wearing any nail polish and grabbed my index finger on my left hand..

I was pretty stunned, and my dad happened to be in the room and was pretty impressed as well! I couldn't stop touching the nail or looking at it.. It almost felt like wearing a gel nail.. The pink circle shows the buffed nail.. I circled the yellow spots in green.. So then I sat there and worked on the rest of my nails..

I know I still have a bit of yellowing.. But this was amazing to me! I told her if we like this system for in between time, I will pay for the refill kit. I am not going to lie, I am MAJORLY impressed.
The kit also includes a cuticle cream, which is good for me. As anyone that has glanced at some of my photos, you will see that I am not too nice to them. I never had the nail biting habit, but I'm a nail picker.. I used to pick and pull at my nails, cuticles and side of the nails until I would draw blood. I don't do it as often anymore, but I notice that when I am stressed out or working a lot, I am really mean to my nails. Hopefully starting this whole repair deal will work!
I will have to keep updates on how this kit works!!
Well, time to get ready for work. Nice managing shift for the next week and bit - YAY!

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
