Post 100 (Pic Heavy-ish)

My 100th post.. I spose it isn't the most impressive milestone, but I am still pretty happy about it!!

All I really have to post about is all the goodies I have acquired lately. And by goodies, I mean polishes!!


I bought these gems before I went away for surgery.. Actually a week or two before.. I just had them hidden away in a bag.. Until now! The photo (from l to r) is OPI Suzi Skis In The Pyrenees Suede, OPI Manicure/Pedicure Papaya Pineapple Scrub (this smells amazing! I used this before I went away for surgery - cannot wait to use it again..) & a backup of CG Strong Adhesion Base Coat (seriously, I love this bade coat!!!)


I snagged these two bad boys from London Drugs last week.. Notice something with the bottle of OPI Alpine Snow? Right at the 'O', the serial number has been filed away. I *almost* put this back, but I was in desperate need for another (yes, another, this is bottle 4..) bottle.. BUT! The main reason for going to LD was to get Seche Vite  as it is the only store in my city that seems to carry that beautiful stuff. Yeah, that is my third bottle. Technically I am working on bottle 1 and 2, but it will never hurt to have another backup.. Right?


Last, but not least, is my TD order. It showed up on Friday - YAY! 2/4 deliveries of my recent online shopping spree are here - glad this was one of them!! From l to r we have: Orly Viridian Vinyl, Orly Purple Pleather, CG Ingrid, CG First Class Ticket, CG Midnight Mission, CC High Society, CC Warhol, CC Mrs. Robinson & CC Twiggie (not pictured is the large bottle of lotion I also ordered)


And this is what my nails currently look like. I had about 30 mins to do my nails before running out and doing errands.. So of course I had to attempt to do something to my nails. I couldn't resist Twiggie's calls!! I am none to pleased with my mani-action, but that is ok! It was just something to cover my nails for a day or three.

I will also post up what WOULD have been my PHD challenge entry had I remembered to actually try to somehow photograph them. I am sad that I couldn't figure out a way - I kind of adore them. PLUS they made me make a FRANKEN POLISH!! I will probably get that post ready for Monday or something.

For now, I have to finish off this 1/2c of Peanut Butter Chocolate Explosion protein drink (even with this bad boy, my protein intake for the day will be too low.. GRR!! I don't want my hair to fall out!!) and then most likely pass out with my book. I am eh so sleepy lately!! I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!

  • jaljen - Thankies! I am glad you agree (:
  • Tierney - He is my adorable little fellow! He is so ridiculous now.. We discovered he LOVES sunflower seeds, so.. I would give him one to shell and while he was working on that one, I would shell another for him.. I bought a HUGE unsalted shelled bag last night.. He basically runs to his bars anytime someone comes down and begs for a sunflower seed!!
  • Niki* - Thankies! I love him!! And the nails aren't too shabby either (:
  • Pretty - Thank yoooou (:

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).

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…
