Mr. Brightside

By The Killers. Again, my iTunes is choosing a song that is actually quite fitting. The nails I am posting are fairly bright.. Haha.. Sorry, had to! I loved The Killers album Hot Fuss, but have been less than thrilled about their last two.. Which is upsetting, but I still have Hot Fuss to go off of, and there isn't one song that I skip through when I listen to the whole album - that is always a good sign!!

I am actually going to show all of you something else that I do when I am going to do my nails but not at my computer desk.. I saw the original image for this on another site and totally forgot to save it.. I just grabbed an index card and drew it out and then closed the window (silly Dee) - so if any of you happen to come across it, let me know! Or if I find it again, I will post it up.. It is way better than mine.. I had a serious case of shakey hands going on and could not make a straight line to save my life!! Oh, and I added another 'tutorial'.. I really need to figure out a better lighting situation.. Anyways! Photo time:










I seriously had random people grabbing at my hands all week.. Which isn't as strange as it sounds!

Also something strange.. I pretty much have another post to do right away.. I actually have things prepared early! I will either do it tonight or tomorrow as it isn't a V-Day look because I'll have to post that up either tomorrow or Sunday - phew!

I also received a challenge that I am super pumped about.. I will include my first 'draft' of that idea in the next post because I liked it but am not overjoyed about it.. Plus I used a fake nail because I had just done this look.. I want to do it on my own nails and all that jazz.

Whelp, I hope everyone is having a freakin' fabulous Friday!!

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
