Quirius Swatches (Pic Heavy)

I am really not one for swatching polishes, but it was asked for, so I will do it! I am super sorry to have to show some really sloppy polish applying.. Please look past that fact - PLEASE! Anyways, on to the photos..

All of the pictures are clickable to be enlarged..

3 coats; a bit streaky and dried rubbery - a white base might be beneficial here!

3 coats; rubbery and you could see all the brush strokes..

2 coats; 1 more coat would have gotten rid of the brush strokes.

3 coats; could use more as at 3 coats it felt like only 1 - super quick drying time!

Now I am actually going to have to find some time either tonight or tomorrow to actually paint my nails. Plus I had mentioned Christmas came early.. Well, it really has! My favourite uncle is arriving here for at least a week tomorrow! WOO!

All very pretty! Maybe a drop or 2 of thinner would make them less 'rubbery'? Enjoy your time with your Uncle :)

Kae - I agree with them all being gorgeous.. and glitter is always a plus!!

Mary - I never thought of that.. I might have to try that.. But I notice that CG Shocking Pink (neon) goes on rubbery unless there is a white base first.. Not sure if that will change anything, but I will give thinner a shot!! And thanks, I am super excited to see him!!

gildedangel - Anytime!! Although maybe next time I will do a better job!!

Love all those polishes. Very pretty on you. My favorite is Arabian Nights. Love all that glitter. Have a wonderful time with your Uncle. My Uncle used to come visit twice a year and stayed with different familes. I really miss him, he died about 5 years ago. I think of him often.

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!

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.

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.
