The Way I Are

By Timbaland featuring Keri Hilson & D.O.E. I used to listen to this song everyday repeat x 5.. Now I still enjoy it, but in very small doses. But D.O.E's part always makes me chuckle!!

SORRY FOR THE ABSENCE!!

I don't really have an excuse other than the fact that I have been feeling tres blah and every look I have done with my nails has just been terribad. Embarrassingly so. I finally did this look and feel a sconch better about myself, haha!

I used a tutorial that JulieG713 posted HERE. I was a smidge disappointed when it was based off of a Rihanna look, but it is still amazing and I just had to copy it! JulieG posts some pretty nice nail looks. I also find that she doesn't try to confuse people when explaining things. (I have seriously watched thousands of YT videos, and some of the nail tutorials could be explained so much easier.. I understand them, but I could see someone trying to learn and just giving up all hope.. When they shouldn't! /endrant).

I think it is time for a new layout here.. I will have to work on that..

ALSO! This is pretty much breaking news.. OCTOBER IS A DAY AWAY! WOO! My favourite!! I love that October is pretty much Halloween themed through the whole month. Time to decorate, pick out pumpkin patterns, decide on a candy theme.. And of course.. nail art! Yay!!

I hope everyone had a good September, sorry I wasn't around too much this month!!

That mani is so cute!!! I personally am not looking forward to October because that means that winter is coming. It already snowed here today! :(

Snow already?! AYE! I would probably cry into my pillow!! October usually means snow action for us as well.. But hopefully it will hold off til November 1!!

It's about time! Love your manicure. I get what you mean about the YT videos. Some are really confusing. October is a fantastic month. It's also the start of the Greek festival at a Greek church. I've been going to visit there for years. Love to buy the food there. Plus all the money goes to the church. Love the Fall and the crisp air.

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).
