My Updated Collection *Pic Heavy*

People that I know have been asking me lately how many polishes I own, and I said I have no idea.. One person said it has to be at least 100, if not way more. I laughed at them. 100? YEAH! Right.

I happened to have decided to move my bookshelf and polish desk.. I didn't like where I had moved my polish stuff - Not enough light there.. And my bookshelf doesn't really need a bunch of light, I could mostly name everything on there.. Anyways!

 
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  
  

Then, after I had them all safely put away.. I found two more babies on my desk.. So CG II and OPI Curry Up Don't Be Late are not pictured.
THEN I tallied up the number.. including minis and the 2 I missed.. 95!! That guess of 100 was alarmingly close. One would think that this number could be startling, but from some of the numbers I have seen posted from other people, I am a polish n00b! This number excites me! I feel like an actual collector! Woo!

Oh, and this also happened..

 
In a way I wasn't too upset about this break, although extremely painful, and I have a high pain tolerance.. This was that nail I had mentioned before.. I couldn't get a photograph of what it actually looks like, but the right side of the nail has actually lifted away from the nail bed.. FREAKY! 
Anyways, that is my post for today so I didn't totally abandon everything this week! Expect another post either tonight or tomorrow.. Whenever I finish this nail design!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).

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!
