Poster Sale

I know.. Not a song title.. Actually, it could be, but if it is, I have never met this tune!!

I used the title 'poster sale' because I went to a poster sale this morning with my sister. The university here holds an annual poster sale.. I have never gone and neither has my sister.. And she REALLY wanted to scope it out. So I agreed to go with her.. And it was AH-MAH-ZING! I quickly snapped some photos of my purchases.. But first I will show you my nails..



I wanted to use OPI Mad As A Hatter, but wasn't entirely sure how.. So I went accent nail. This was boring to me, so I added a diagonal stripe of MAAH.. And silver tape.. The tape came off before I went to sleep last night.. I didn't even snap a photo because I was so angry. I was even angry enough to painstakingly take off the polish without using the foil method. Anyways, a new look I will put on later this afternoon. I am thinking red.. with dots.. and bows.. I have seen some new YT vids (:

Ok.. Poster pictures! I am really excited about these. My mom was like 'why would you buy a bunch of posters?' I told her they were an investment in artwork for my future home/apt/condo/etc.. Plus I told her we'd be framing them soon.. That seemed to get her to leave me alone about them!! I only bought 4.. well, it should have been 5.. But when I got up there to get my posters, they were sold out of one of the images that caught my eye the most! Grr.. Oh well.. I could probably recreate it myself whenever I feel like picking up my paintbrushes for something besides my nails. My sister bought a whooooole bunch, but I will just show mine!


This was the first poster I chose.. Now, I am not one for blatant advertising.. Nor am I the type of person to have my home littered with images supporting companies that I hardly own any of.. BUT! The lady walking in that amazing plaid skirt and jacket? LOVE! Plus it is a black and white print.


Here is the second gem I chose. I have actually seen images similar to this one.. But I needed to own it. Again, black and white with a pop of colour.. Totally my thing!


Third choice.. Umm.. The green in the background matches my walls perfectly! I was like 'eeehhhh.. I don't really need it..' and my sister was like 'it matches your walls, plus I know you want it, write it down'.. So I did. And am super happy that I did!


Anyone else notice a trend in what I like? Pops of colours! I looked at so many NYC skyline prints and posters.. And was like 'I don't really need them'.. I probably saw this one in 5 different sizes.. Then when we were waiting in line to hand in our tickets, it was displayed once again.. It was like a sign. I had to have it!

The whole morning was amazing! I am kind of disappointed in myself that I have missed out on this sale the past few years.. I have never seen so many great images on display in one place.. Unless it was a gallery. I cannot wait for next year!!

I hope everyone has a FIERCE Friday.. OH! I should be getting my polishes today.. I requested 2 colours from the new OPI collection.. And CG polish.. I am not going to announce colour names - I don't want to jinx myself!!

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!
