Earrache My EYE!

Technically it IS a song title, but it is also hinting towards the eye.. And that is the basis for my opening of this post. I woke up this morning with an extremely swollen eye. At first, I was like 'sweet lord, pink eye!!' but after closer inspection by myself and my mother, we have decided that I most likely socked myself right in the eye last night. The swelling has gone down some, thankfully! Before, because of the swelling, when I blinked, my eyelashes were hitting my eyeball since the lid was so large it pushed them downwards - good times!!

I finally did something that I am fairly pleased with! Take a look...

Above is with flash, below is without..
I used OPI You Don't Know Jacques! Suede & ORLY Glitz. I did two thin coats of YDKJS, although I could have gotten away with one.. Then I took one of my art sponges and applied Glitz to the top half of my nails. After that I took my nail art brush and added the black stripes. Simple, but effective!!

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!

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

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.
