My Three Favourite Polishes

Huh.. To narrow it down is pretty much illegal.. I will go with polishes that I own that have very little left.. Here goes..





First off I will go with OPI Alpine Snow. I am currently working on my second bottle of it. I love doing my nails half one colour half white with polka dots.. Or.. Well, I even have nail art pens in white, but I usually just use a skinny brush with Alpine Snow anyways.. I absolutely adore it.. And if you're just looking for an attention getting white for manicures, this would be it!














Next would be China Glaze Rich & Famous. I absolutely adore this pink! I originally bought the set of pinks because it was to raise funds for Breast Cancer that is something that I am absolutely terrified of. I basically started collecting polish at the time I ordered that set and was soooo happy to receive this gem! I think I have a smidge less than a half left.. And I will probably replace.. Because although I have a ton of pink polishes, none of them get the same attention from me as this one!










Last would be OPI Curry Up Don't Be Late.. I pretty much bought this shade because of the name.. Then once I wore it I was hooked! I have honestly used this shade a base so many times! I have exactly half a bottle left. I own a few others from the India collection and this one is definitely my favourite!







Well I am doing this random entry, I think I will post this 20 question deal that I snagged off of another blog. I just sort of showed up and didn't say too much about myself.. So here goes, read on if you'd like!
Q: Things you cannot leave the house without?
A: I am going to go with cell phone. I am paranoid of getting stuck somewhere.. Even though it seems that cell phones do not have service when you most need them :\

Q: Favorite brand of make-up?
A: I LOVE MAC! But I only splurge for very few items, which means I have studied them extensively! Otherwise I am a drugstore make-up queen. I swear that between my sister and I – we have tried everything the local drugstores can offer. I LOVE Maybelline eyeshadows.

Q: Favorite flower?
A: Calla Lilies.

Q: Favorite clothing store?
A: I don’t really have a favourite.. I guess where ever I can find stuff I like!

Q: Favorite perfume?
A: Allergic to 99.457% of them.

Q: Heels or Flats?
A: Flats! Or sneakers.. I love me some skateboarding shoes – they are insanely comfortable! Plus I have them in fun colours like green, purple and polka-dots!

Q: Do you make good grades?
A: Yes. Even when I would totally forget about a project and spend an hour or two whipping up a report I would still get 80s – 90s whereas some people spent weeks and would get 60s – 70s..

Q: Favorite Colors?
A: GREEN! Followed by hot pink then black and white.

Q: Do you drink energy drinks?
A: Only Monster, and only when doing a jag-bomb.. Which isn’t tooo often!

Q: Do you drink juice?
A: Sure. I love Orange, Apple, Cranberry/White Cranberry annnd Iced Tea. Oh! And Banana Coconut Fuze.

Q: Do you like swimming?
A: Sure, it is a lot of fun!

Q: Do you eat fries with a fork?
A: If it is poutine I do.

Q: Favourite moisturizer?
A: Dove.. Just a really simple one.

Q: Do you want to get married later on in life?
A: I always said absolutely not.. but now if it happens, cool, if not, awesome – I am not going to base my life on whether I got married or not. Ugh, these questions always get me all amped up and I feel like I have to give an essay!

Q: Do you get mad easily?
A: I am quicker to just smile or shrug things off, but if I do get mad, it can be dangerous!

Q: Are you into ghost hunting?
A: Naaah.

Q: Any phobias?
A: Spiders terrify me. And breast cancer.

Q: Do you bite your nails?
A: I don’t bite.. I pick.. Which is basically the same thing.. I just like my teeth too much to subject them to nail biting!

Q: Have you ever had a near death experience?
A: Not really..

Q: Do you drink coffee?
A: BARF. Absolutely not.

China Glaze Rich & Famous seems like a color that I would love to wear, so I think I'll add this one to my list :-)

I could never narrow it down to 3! I love Alpine Snow though, that is one of my favorites.

I have Curry Up Don't Be Late but haven't tried it. The other two I've never seen swatched. Thanks for answering the questions. Nice to know you a little bit more. I love coffee! I didn't start drinking it till about 5 years ago. I always liked the smell but not the taste.

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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

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 thing too. Take care…
