Analogous Nails

Polish Hoarder Disorder (PHD) posted up the Analogous Color Challenge, so of course I had to accept it! (It was extremely difficult to not add a 'u' to colour)

And of course I chose the Yellow, Green-Yellow and Green spectrum.


I am not sure whether I have mentioned it before or not, but I work at a retirement home (as well as my sister) and the residents always enjoy seeing what we have done with our nails. There is one table of ladies in particular that always give input and I think once they started making a big fuss about our nails, everyone else has to grab our hands to see them. Sometimes it makes serving take longer, but I don't mind. Sometimes they even give me ideas.

Now, why am I giving you this background information you ask? Well, yesterday while I was serving, the ladies at aforementioned table of course all had to get a closer look. Then one of the ladies, really loudly, said: 'those green nails are hideous!'. Now, usually she isn't so blunt.. So I was like 'Awwwe -insert name here-, you don't like them?' then she said 'oh no, I like them, I just hate green!' - It just goes to show that while some people favour a colour, others really hate it.. Anyways.. Random story.

I hope everyone is having an excellent week thus far! I need to kill a few hours before I hang out with a friend.. We're going to go look at cell phones then have ice cream. Sounds like a solid evening! I may just return home with an iphone.. Depending on monthly costs and such. We shall see! Oh! Plus it is in the mall.. Maybe I can sneak in to Claire's and find me some of those mood polishes.. Oh the possibilities!!

Your Comments Answered
  • AggiePigeon - I did a little reading on the Orly creme you speak of.. I kind of like the sounds of it.. Plus I kind of heart the brand! Thank you for tossing out that suggestion, I think I might just have to order it!! And I agree, it is a lovely colour!!
  • nailsss - Haha! I totally agree! It really does! I actually did get a ton of compliments on this one. And lots of random people grabbing my hands to look/touch my nails.
  • Lily nail - Thank you very much (:
  • shortnails - It is just a little yellowy-orange sponge I picked up from Michaels in a sponge variety pack (ha!) I will try to remember to snap a photo of it next time.. You could totally cut the cotton balls in half - I did! I just put on enough remover to cover my nail.. I know it does seem like a waste, but, I would imagine that you wouldn't be wearing glitter nails ALL the time.. Right? So that way if it is only once in awhile it isn't so bad.. I figure it usually takes me 10+ cotton balls to finish the job using elbow grease, I might as well toss in some tin foil for good measure (:

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!
