Psycho Killer *Pic Heavyish*

By The Talking Heads. This is a band that my dad loves, and I didn't mind it when he listened to their albums, but this song is hands down my fave! There are just songs that I enjoy for certain elements. The element that I like in this song? They sing a bit in FRENCH! Maybe that is why I love 'Bad Romance' so much.. I digress.

Before I show you what I am currently sporting on my fingernails, I must show you all a gift I (ok, my sister and I) received. Two of our co-workers just got back from Hawaii, and they picked up this set for us..




Pretty eh? They are called 'Island Girl: Hawaii' and they are lovely! Sadly the green polish appears to be the only one with a label (it is called 'Aloha Girl') - I might have to check out the website listed on the side to see if I can find some more colour names! I love the names listed on polish - sometimes that is half the fun!! I will try to maybe get some swatching done on the fake nails I still have lying around the place.

SO! Here was my quick design.. My sis and I were watching movies last night, and I decided that having my nails naked for 2+ days was long enough. I saw this photo before I logged off:



I didn't do mine exactly the same.. Hence the inspiration.. Anyways..









My sister says it looks like creepy trees.. Which I like. Because creepy = good to me! I think I will be changing my nails either tomorrow (err.. later today..) or Saturday afternoon at the latest. I need something new for NEW MOON! That is correct.. I am a Twi-Hard, I'll admit it. My favourite friend and I are going on Saturday night to see it.. Supper first, then some sweet vampire/wolf movie time. I am pro-Team Edward by the by.

Anyways! Hope everyone had a terrific Thursday and are prepared to have a fabulous Friday!

OH! And I just wanted to send out a mondo-huge THANKIES to Tuli for sending me an email and letting me know that my comments weren't working. You're a doll!!

Love those polishes, so bright and pretty! I think your design is lovely, it reminds my of a Japanese Cherry Tree. Enjoy the weekend :)

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).
