Here I Go Again

On my own!! Going down the only road I've ever known.. Like a drifter I was born to walk alone.. But I've made up my mind.. I ain't wasting no more time!! Umm.. Sorry.. This song is by Whitesnake and I seriously have had this song on repeat in my brain. I have been singing it like crazy too.. Last night while gaming I was singing it as well.. My brother had his mic on.. So the 'boys' laughed at me.. Good times!!

Sorry if I go off track a smidge in this post.. I had blood taken about an hour ago.. And I'm jittery from it! Sadly I have problematic veins in my arms aka they do not want people to take blood from them.. So they have to take from my hand.. And then I get the shakes and my hand becomes weak for the day.. And bruises.. Yay!

Yesterday I rushed through doing my nails because I was going to go out for supper and then shop for supplies with my friend before our weekend escape (T - 5 hours! Woo!) BUT! Thinking back, it was waaay better to do them yesterday because my hand will be too shakey today. What a thinker I am.. Either that or I can work my way out of any situation.. Anyways!!


First two photos are mine.. w/o and with flash. Third photo is the inspiration picture. I realize that it should be more of a teal colour and a darker purple in there.. But I switched it up a bit!!

I used: OPI What's With The Cattitude?, OPI Jade Is The New Black, Essie Mesmerize, OPI No Room For The Blues, OPI A Grape Fit! & CG Liquid Leather.

This was actually a lot of fun to do! I thought I would be getting all angry and do a shotty job, but I don't think it is too bad!!

I have so many "inspiration" photos from these nail art magazines, yet none of them just make me want to do my nails.. Hopefully this weekend away will recharge my copying skills and I'll be ready to start power-housing through these magazines!!

Also, I need a name for these gems! I usually name my photos before I slap them into MY nail folder.. Yet I have no witty/lame/fun name for these bad boys - any suggestions?

Anyways, I hope everyone has a RAD weekend! I will try to be doing the same (:

Are they a bit Art Deco? But I can't think of an amusing name.

I La-Lique them. (If Lalique is anything to do with Deco. I could google it, I suppose...)

I hate it when they say, "Collapsing veins." It sounds as if you are on the verge of death! It frightened me so much the first time I heard it.

Feel strong soon.

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.
