Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

By Sir Elton John. I love him!! I don't like all his songs, but the tunes I do like I end up playing a ton. Like this one. It is just so good! For some reason it calms me down. I think I have listened to it over 100 times in the last few days.. Since my beautiful little baby DJ passed away (sadface x 1 million.)

Hello lovelies!! I have a post with a slight tutorial with it. When doing this tutorial business I noticed something: my camera is terribad!! We have been together for.. 3 years now I think.. And he is just so outdated. My sister bought herself a camera around Christmastime that has 12.whatever mega pixels and the picture she takes are STUNNING! My little bad boy here has 7.2, which isn't terrible, but I am wondering if someone has done something to my camera and hasn't told me :(

Plus I think I should look into building a lightbox for my photos as well. Maybe I will get on with that today.

PLUS! I am going to making another post hopefully later today with an idea I thought up yesterday! Ok, now to the photoy-goodness..
The Inspiration

What I Used


The Finished Look

The Steps

I am not sure if the guide will be helpful, but I figured if someone saw this wacky look and wanted to know how to go about executing it, I would lend a hand! I used a bobby pin for the dots and just went for it. I came across this photo (it was just an image littered amongst many others from a Japanese nail art magazine) and I knew I had to try it.

For the most part I do really like it.. I think the black 'strap' is strange though.. Not to say I don't like it.. It is just really different!!

Oh, and a quick snap of what I picked up at CosmoProf the other day..
Alrighty.. Time for me to go do some cleanup.. And not on my nails (heh) - and I tried clean up around the edges with acetone.. Black polish + acetone = angry stained skin!!



  •  gildedangel - Thank you doll! I will let my sister see that comment - she will be pleased!
  • Danielle - Thank you for assuring me I am not totally out to lunch!! And good eye - there is some tiny pink 'particles' within the polish!

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!
