Talking In Your Sleep

By The Romantics.. My love of 80s music comes out again!

I have had some serious trouble with typing lately.. So if there are a ton of mistakes in this bad boy, I apologize in advance!!

So, my last "manicure" only made it through one day.. I traded to work in the dishpit and ruined two nails in the process. I actually meant to post this last night but was too tired and went to sleep instead!

Inspiration picture here: http://nailart4fun.ning.com/photo/2277784:Photo:86?context=latest

Theeeeen.. I was getting ready to watch a whole bunch of episodes of 'The Guild' and decided that it would be a great time to work on my nails.. And after I scoped that photo I was like 'I love polka dots'.. I own two pairs of shoes, 2 shirts, 1 camisole, 1 bag, my makeup kit and various other articles in black and white dots.. So why not do something like that on my nails? Plus I had a managing shift and it looks some what sophisticated (I am rational.. seeee?)

And this is my take:



Photobucket
Photobucket
Left Hand
Photobucket
Right Hand


I decided to take a photo of my left hand and my right hand to show that I do the same on both ;p Although trying to snap a photo of my right hand is pretty tough.. And that is with my awesome ambidextrous-ness!

OH! OHHHH! I would also like to point out that I actually made an effort of cleaning up around the nails before posting.. I know, please pick your jaws off of the ground!

I hope everyone had an awesome Monday and is ready for a super Tuesday!

*Side Note*: I forgot to snap a photo of my bobby pin, which is what I used to make the large dots. I am forever greatful to that youtube video for showing me the way in using a bobby pin as a perfect dotting tool! <33

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…

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).

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!
