The Dotted Ribbon

Sorry, just have time for a quick post. Feels like forever since I used a song title for my post. AND answered comments. I promise (for real this time!) that I will catch up on all the stuff next time.

I was super pumped to show off this look, but upon closer inspection of the pictures (and after getting a couple hours of sleep instead of being up for 40 some hours..) I am disappointed by all the black dot 'dragging'. I really need a new black nail art pen, BUT, the brand that I like hasn't been restocked in a loooong time at CosmoProf, makes me extremely worried. Plus I cannot find them online. Scary!!

Anyways, another mani that looks better in real life (and from a bit of a distance) I still like it. Every time I glance down, I am reminded of something but can never bring to words what it is that I am reminded of. Grr!

The base colour is OPI Dim Sum Plum, which, of course, didn't photograph as it should. It is truly an amazing shade. I cannot believe I waited so long to test it out.


Gah! Silly black!! Ruined it.. Ahh well, I still like it.. OH! And, I have come across so many nail art magazine downloads.. It is scary. I am going to try and post one at least once a week (maybe twice once I get going) See, I want to change my polish everyday, but I already get strange glances from the two times I do it a week. Oh well, that is just something I will have to deal with!

I will shuddup now! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Wednesday.. And I will talk to you all soon with a proper post!!

P.S - I snipped my nails down a smidgen.. I decided to snip them before one of them got caught on something ridiculous and ripped off down to the quick. I know, genius!

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!
