Stepping Stone

By Duffy. Sigh.. The way she sings this song is just so pretty! I know some people say her voice is too annoying to listen to repeatedly, but I really like it..

Gah.. Who blogs at 4:10am? Stupid insomnia.

Sooo.. A girlie that I work with asked me when I was painting my nails again.. And I said within my few days off.. And I asked her what colours I should use.. She picked blue - wanted something with two shades of blue. Done.

I actually found a youtube video for this look.. But I changed it up a bit because I wanted it to be different. BUT! I did - you know what.. Scope the photo of what I used first:

P.S - Sorry I always snap photos before cleanup.. So yucky!!


The dots were made with a bobby pin! How neato is that? I kind of like youtube and all the little tips and tricks I find! I was going to order some of those dotting/marbelizing tools.. But for now this works. I am trying to be good and pay off some stuff before going back to school.. When all I want to do is spend money on nail polish and makeup.. and books! UGH! /endrant

Well.. I spose I should get some shut eye before shopping tomorrow.. err.. today!

Oh.. And just a quick snap of my make up from the evening.. I liked it.. I mean, considering I haven't been doing my make up too often anymore.. But anyways!

Love the manicure! Very cute and I love the blue. I love Duffy's voice. It's nice to hear a more unusual voice. I can't stand the Brittany type voices. Makes me want to scream! I don't like that genre of music anyway. I'm sure there are plenty of people up with you at 4AM. I'm up any time day or night. I'm glad I have a computer to fill my time.

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.
