Casey's Song

By City & Colour. I like to think that my iTunes shuffler really seems to know me. I have been listening to tunes for the past hour and it has played more slow tempo-saddish songs for me. Because it knows how blah I feel. Dallas Green is a super talented artist.. City & Colour is his solo work, and it is really great. Have a listen!!

So this demon illness that I have has changed its course. I figured it was a sinus infection due to the fact that my head felt like it was going to explode. Now it isn't so much about my nasal area but my throat. Which worries me the most. If I get a head cold and stop it before it gets to my throat area, I'm in the clear. Fingers crossed for laryngitis or brochitis.. I am not interested in pneumonia right now.

I know I should be resting, but I was asleep for 12+ hours already. I spose I could go read.. Have a new book, yay!

Oh riiiight.. Nail polish!! Just a quick photo of a quick look that I put together so that my nails wouldn't be nekkid during work yesterday.




Yes, that is the 'broken' thumb nail.. It is lame because no matter how much SH Hard As Nails I put on, that little part is.. squishy? Mainly because it isn't really nail. Urgh! Ahh well.. This look is just CG Liquid Leather and CG Doll House. I am kind of in love with this glitter polish!! Later today I will try that aluminium foil way to take off glitter polishes.

I hope everyone is having a marvelous Monday!




  • gildedangel - It doesn't really hurt, it just sucks! I guess I will have to wait for my nail to grow out a bit then cut it so that it is all nail. The waiting game is no fun!!

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).
