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!!

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!
