Somebody To Love

By Leighton Meester featuring Robin Thicke.. This is another song I got a hold of quite some time ago, but was never overly interested in.. Until I gave it a full listening to and realized she is speaking French in the song.. Playing this song and 'Psycho Killer' by The Talking Heads back to back? Win!

Here is the mani I worked on last night (at 1am.. an insomniac that suffers from boredom yay!) Annnd.. Because I was feeling extra generous (and I was pretty happy how it was going after painting on black lines) I started snapping photos.. Enjoy!



  1. Paint base colour. I used 2 coats of OPI Alpine Snow.
  2. I globbed some CG Liquid Leather on to my index card, and using a nail art brush, I painted on black lines.
  3. Using OPI No Room For The Blues, I painted in the sections that are to be blue.
  4. Using SH Insta-Dri Lightning, I painted in the yellow sections.
  5. Using OPI A Shorts Story, I painted in the pink sections.
  6. Using OPI A Grape Fit, I painted in the purple sections.
  7. (Not Shown) I used some more CG Liquid Leather and went over the black lines.
Yesterday I found a wealth of nail art magazine downloads, so I am just stocked with pics to test out - which I look forward to sharing. Now, I LOVE THIS!  I seriously cannot stop looking at my finger nails.. And seriously, it only took maybe 45 minutes from start to finish. I already had a lady this morning basically calling me a liar and asking where I get my nails done. I mean, it isn't the best work ever, but it is something that I have done that I am incredibly pleased with. Now I can rest in happiness for a few days until my insomnia boredom strikes again!

Have a fabulous Friday everyone!!

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).

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.
