Bad Things

By Jace Everett. I had always considered watching 'True Blood', but never actually started. Then my best friend told me to absolutely watch it. So I started the other night. Almost through the first season. I am in love/obsessed/UGH with this show! AND! I absolutely love the opening credits song.. I hate country music, but there are the few gems like this song and some off of the 'From Dusk Til Dawn' soundtrack that creep me out and make me LOVE them. Woo.. well.. on to the postage..

I used this tutorial by QueenofBlendingMUA for these nails.. Although I changed it up a smidge because I am not a *big* fan of rhinestones.. Scope the vid out HERE.

I had been thinking about using Breakin' for awhile.. But couldn't really think of anything to do with orange until October.. Glad I found this. I had wanted to use ORLY Calypso Breeze as the blue, but I use it quite often.. So figured I would give Sexy in the City another try. I actually really love this.

And as always, sorry for my lack of cleaning up.. Always when I finish a look I am super eager to post it up after it dries.

Ok, back to 'True Blood'.. Sigh. Does anyone else watch this show? If so, what do you think about it??

Hi, I like the nail art. It reminds me of modern art. I watched the first season of True Blood on HBO demand. And while I was intrigued. I just couldn't get into the whole vampire thing. I'm a bit of a scaredy cat...lol! When my husband and I were engaged,(this was eons ago...lol) we went with friends and saw Anne Rice's Interview With A Vampire on the big screen. And that just totaly spooked me forever with vampires. I'll never forget trying to go to sleep that night. Which was almost impossible...lol!

Cute design! I love the color combination you used. Sadly, I never watch TV because I just don't have the time, but it sounds interesting. Ive read a lot Vampire themed books and always enjoyed them.

I love this manicure. You really have the most fantastic looks. I love the diagonal colors and the dots. Amazing look! Your nails look beautiful. I watch TrueBlood. I love the show and watched the second season end on Sunday. I wish it would be on sooner. I read the books and they were terrific. I hate having such a bad memory. I can't remember most of the things that went on in the book. I know that some of the stuff has been written by a screen writer and wasn't in the book. I love any books or good movies that deal with vampires. If you haven't read the books you should. Let me know if you have?

Ahhh.. see.. I asked some people if it was based on books and some said yes, others no.. Now I know! And I have to READ THEM!!

I am almost done the first season. I absolutely am addicted!!

Hey dee, loving that colour, 'breaking', it's off the chain! And your nails are gorge!
Also, I am in love with 'True Blood' as well, I'm catching up with the 2nd season now, and trying to refresh my memory by also watching some of the 1st season shows. HBO is a godsend, no commercials and a full 1 hour show!

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…

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).
