Color Accent

Here are is my Color (I seriously want a 'u' in there!!) Accent entry for the PHD Challenge

I actually liked what I did. I can honestly say they looked better irl, but oh well! I wanted to wear the look for a few days, but for some reason my one and only grey polish seems to be missing!! Grr!! We (being my sister and I) know that she used it last.. And we literally looked everywhere. I am not impressed. 1 - it is a perfect grey to me and 2 - it is Orly.. that brand is not readily available to me.. I have to order it in. Guh. So not impressed.

For this look, I used OPI Alpine Snow (will need a third/fourth backup asap), CG Liquid Leather & CG In The Lime Light. I also mixed Alpine Snow and Liquid Leather for the grey. I was going to keep mixing so I could paint up my other hand.. But I didn't want to use a bottle to mix, so it dries super quickly!!


Like I have been saying in my past few posts, I had surgery.. And I'm sort of starting to bounce back.. But I feel so different.. In a good way! Anyways, this part is going to be about friends. I seriously think I might have the greatest friends ever. They have been texting me like crazy to keep me company and dropping in for visits.. But, they also have brought me gifts. My parents are like 'they don't have to do this! tell them!' - my family has always been like that. Of course I tell them that gifts are not necessary, but you know the thing with gifts.. They are kind of nice to receive (:

(not pictured: a book called 'Little Bee', some amazing peach scented body wash and the iTunes gift card)

Ok, the little key chain and lip gloss are actually from my besties trip to France (for the Cannes film fest). The lip gloss is called 'Mood Swing', and apparently the different shades are activated by your emotions (aka your body heat).. So, according to the side, I always in the zones of 'Dirty Thoughts', 'Hot & Bothered' and 'Bask In The Afterglow'. Gosh dang body temp! Makes me seem sort of pervy.. (;

The key chain is also adorable, the container she came in reads 'Kimmi Junior' and she is Daisy.. My friend bought her because she has red hair and I enjoy dabbling in the redhead family hair pool!

She is the one that also bought me that little Zhu Zhu pet hamster. His name is Tex and Bennie (the lovely pet degu) is not too fond of him as he squawks back! She loved the little hamster so much she went out and bought one for her cat to play with. Adorable!

Then, one of my other close friends stopped in last night. First off, the bag she put my gifts in was white with black polka dots - I obviously loved it already!! She bought me an intriguing book called 'Little Bee' - seriously, there is basically no description (she even looked online, same thing) so that amazes me! I cannot wait to start reading it!! She also bought me this amazing peach body wash.. It smells like fuzzy peach candies.. And a really gorgeous candle (pictured above) the casing is so cute and it smells like fresh laundry.. I was burning it for a bit last night.. I plan on doing my nails pretty soon here.. So I will be smelling fresh laundry instead of nail polish!

I am in no way bragging about these gems, I am just really happy about them all! Plus, if my friends ever stumble over this blog, they will know (even more so) how much I appreciate them! They are the best!!

I hope everyone is having a great Thursday! I have to do my nails and go see my doctor.. I have a fairly busy day.. For me.. As of late!

Later (:

Your nails look awesome!! I love them.
And yay for amazing friends! :D I've never had surgery, but once I was sick last year for a little bit and my friends brought a bag of my favorite candies and a balloon and left them on our front porch. They did the whole ding-dong-ditch thing. It was great.

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…

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).

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!
