Renegade

By Styx. This is probably one of my favourite tunes of all time. I am not entirely sure why.. But it is!

Yesterday I had painted my nails purple ala OPI A Grape Fit! And then added black stars on each nail.. Then went off to a hockey game with my lovely mitts on.. When I took them off? The stars were taking bites (seriously) out of the lining in my mitts. I was not impressed. Although I loved how it looked.. I think it would be more suitable for summer as the little stars won't try to nom on everything!!

After I removed the look (sorry, I didn't even snap a photo :\) I decided that I should paint my nails with one of my new polishes.. Sooo.. Grey seemed like a good colour choice to me. Kind of fits my mood as of late. ORLY Mirror, Mirror was selected.. But me being me.. I couldn't just leave my nails as polish without some sort of embellishment..

I went through my nail art folder.. It is huuuuge!! And found this image:




I loved the little floral details.. Reminded me of Old Wallpaper.. So.. Old Wallpaper was born. I also decided to try using acrylic paint and a paintbrush for this.. And I have to say, I absolutely loved this method! I think I will have to buy a set of mini acrylic paints just for my nail art purposes!!

Here are the photos.. I even included a shot of my right hand.. I have to say that using a paintbrush was really weird! I don't have a problem with a polish brush on nails or a paintbrush on canvas, but this one threw me off.. Some practice is needed..


 
 


Luckily I keep looking at my left hand, haha! Not entirely sure why, but I absolutely LOVE this look.

Well, thankies for stopping by - have a wonderful Wednesday!!




  • gildedangel - Thank you! I thought it would be kind of fun.
  • Velvet - Thank you.. I am slowly starting to feel not so terribad! And I think it looks pretty nice as well (:

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
