Hazel

By Junior Boys.. I have seriously listened to this song 28 times within the last week, I cannot get enough of it! I bought it off of iTunes quite awhile back, but never really listened to it. Then, about a week ago, I finally gave it a fair listen to and absolutely love it!! I don't even know what it is about the tune.. Usually though, once he says 'hazel', I restart the song.. And it isn't said until the end.. Weird how the title actually is the most disappointed part of the song.. heh.

Ok, so, before I show you the mani I am currently sporting, I must say this.. This actually looks approximately 8 million times better in real life. The photos showcase my mistakes more than my own eyes do.. I mean, yes, I notice the lines that my silly black silkline polish left.. But some of the other mistakes that I notice in the photo are harder to notice with the human eye. I just had to get that off my chest.. Now.. Onwards!

A couple of things.. First, Kae should really be getting the $$ I paid for Mesmerize.. After she posted her look done with the polish, it is pretty much the only polish I could think of. It was on my next to order list from TD.. BUT! I was London Drugs last Friday, and it was totally in a polish bin.. I did a walk by.. Double take.. Said 'no way..' checked the label, and way! The polish I had badly wanted. What a super day!! Second, I had inspiration for this bad boy in the form of a pair of heels. Now, I changed it from zebra (I'm sorry, you're still my favourite!) to more Tigery stripes.. Just for a simplicity sake.
 
Now to add some gem like photos of my two mini rascals.. We had them upstairs with us (playing on the kitchen floor.. don't worry, cleaned and disinfected afterward!)

Please excuse my mother's leg and my sister's leg.. And the bottom photo is of Jet being ever so adorable. Alrighty, that is all for now!

Have a terrific Thursday everyone!!

So much in this post! Wow! I love the Junior Boys too. In fact I brought them to play a show in Tulsa a few years ago! A couple of my friends and I figured out that no one was playing here simply because no one was asking! We had some success and lots of stress and fun. Hopefully we'll be able to start promoting shows again next year when my friend is done with grad school!
I LOVE your nails! So freaking cool! Fun to see the inspiration as well.

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…

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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
