Periwinkle Squares

Yes, I'm back. Two days in a row!

I think I am just super pumped because last night I actually got to put in an hour of reading.. with minor discomfort! Yes!

Oh, plus I have some photos of my little Bennie at the end - enjoy!


Here is what I used.. CG Secret Peri-Wink-Le & CG Liquid Leather. I was going to use a purple like the image does, buuuut.. I have a few untried and I really don't want them to become too many.. So CGSP it is! Also, I have been using two 'base' coats. I added OPI Matte Nail Envy into the mix because my nails are quite long right now.. And the crazy part is that they are all basically the same length.. I am just trying to avoid a nail break.. Once that happens I will clip down all my nails and start over again. Sigh. It is just nice to have these nice long nails again.

Inspiration picture..

My take...

These were actually kind of easy to do.. For the most part. A few of the 'squares' were filled in (like my pinky and ring fingers), but I just dabbed some black and tried to fix it up. Now, in the inspiration image, I do like the little gems and such they use.. But, I don't really like wearing little gems.. I find them to be impractical.

Ok, now the promised photo of Bennie. I think awhile back I said I wanted to get photos of him in his dust bath because it is amazing.. Well..
I had to toss in the last image.. He was so into his dust bath, he didn't notice his favourite non-toy: my camera. Then, mid swivel in the dust, he stopped and stared straight at me.. Then he tried to grab the camera cord. I adore him!

Whelp, that is all I have got to say for now.. I hope everyone will have a fantastic Friday and a wonderful weekend! See you all next week (:

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!
