Pink Cheetah Fail

One of these days I swear I am going to master cheetah-print-esque nails on myself. Sadly today is not that day.


Sooo, this will be my last entry for a little while.. I go in for surgery on Monday and will be in the hospital until Thursday.. Once I am released I get to travel back home (about 2 and a half hours) and prepare for my 6 week recovery. Bleh.

That is why I haven't been posting anything this week. I have just been relaxing, making sure I get everything in order for at least next week as I am not sure how everything will turn out.. I had to travel today and go for my pre-assessment appointment.. Went over things to expect AND I got to meet the man that will be making me go to sleep for a bit.. Pretty intense. Then had to have MORE blood work done.. So my hand will be nice and zombie like tomorrow.. And on top of all that.. I have been on my liquid surgery prep diet for 13 days now.. So I am excruciatingly tired.

Anyways, enough of my whining! I should go and rest. Last day of work tomorrow. Then traveling on Sunday.. Surgery at 8am on Monday.. phew!!

Oh.. And like I have been telling everyone that isn't immediate family or a very close friend: do not worry about the surgery I am having. Just know that it is happening.. I don't really wish to discuss a bunch o' details about it.. That is all!

I hope everyone has an amazing week!!

P.S - Since I was in Regina today.. I made a quick stop in at the Dollar Giant as Deez Nailz mentions these polishes by the brand Billie that she always gets there.. I was all pumped because her photos show these lovely displays of the polish.. Yeah.. The Dollar Giant in Regina looks like a bomb went off in that area. There was ONE single bottle of this milky coloured Billie polish.. But I didn't even bother with it as it was half empty. Sigh.

Your Comments Answered
  • KarenD - Thank you.. I figure that it lasts long enough for me to take photos and I don't have to mess around with glues.. Simplicity is usually my friend! And thank you.. They are not as good as the webs I did at Halloween, but I tried!!
  • Meeka - It was such a tough book to get through! I really did think it would be a quick and easy read as the book is quite small, but no. I write down all the books I read, as well as start and finish dates. I started it sometime in April and just finished it up now.. I mean.. I read other books in the mean time, I just lost serious interest in the book. She isn't a great writer to begin with, but that was basically garbage!! And YES! You got it! Haha, I love that you changed the lyrics in your mind as well (:
  • shortnails - You totally should.. It is beneficial when you just don't want to paint your own nails/you already have something done. And yes! HT IN CANADA! I had been told it wasn't coming here either, so I had a swap sort of set up.. But running across it in the store was like a dream! You'll have to keep your eyes open for that gem!! Well, the liquid diet is for my surgery prep.. It is just this protein drink.. It isn't horrible.. But what I wouldn't do for real food at this point in time I tell ya!!

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…

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).
