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!

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!

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.

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.
