I'm Not Cool

By Sohodolls. I don't have a mani to show off today, so I decided I would use a song title! It has been quite some time.. (sidenote: the website that I update my blogs' music player is acting lame.. hopefully I can add the song later!)

My bestie bought me an iTunes gift card as part of my 'Get Well' package.. So of course I did a little music shopping and it recommended this song for me.. and I actually really like it!

That isn't the only shopping I have been doing.. I am not back at work til probably September.. And I did sock away a pretty good sum of $$, but really.. I shouldn't be 'shopping'.. Cannot help it! I bought the two seasons of True Blood off of ebay for $40 altogether.. AND! I put in an order at TD.. oops.

So, since I don't have anything MANI-wise to post, I figured I could post what I ordered. I will doing my nails in a bit for the PHD Challenge, so I will post that either tomorrow or Friday.. Anyways!


There are all the goodies that should be in my possession in the very near future! Yay! Oh, the little polish 'blobs' are Color Club polishes. I have never owned any, so why not now?

Anyways, that is all for now. My gross protein drink and the sims2 (I totally went back to the sims 2 after abandoning it for the sims 3.. nerd) are calling my name - talk to you all later! (:

  • susies1955 - Thank you! So far so good.. I haven't even been taking my pain meds.. I figure that is a good sign! And I will scope out the giveaway (:
  • Deez Nailz - Thank you! I hope for a quick recovery as well. I was tidying up the house earlier, and had to take a break every few moments. Very annoying! It is funny you say that.. I was telling my dad (after we left the store) that there is this blogger (you!) and she posts these amazing photos of the displays/how nice everything looks.. Maybe I will give it another go when I am in Regina again!
  • Tierney - Thankies doll! Me too!!

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!
