Pink and Pink

Just a somewhat quickie post.

I am starting to make myself get up at better times (I can go to bed before midnight and not wake up til 2:30pm the next day.. And that is giving you the earliest time I could wake up at). I am starting to actually be more beneficial to my body after surgery. Finally I am starting to get through my head all the changes that have already happened and will happen. Craziness. I am starting to snap out of my funk! Woo! Plus it has just been over a month now.. Time flies when you're not having fun as well!!

Side note.. The other night, my bro had some of his pals over.. They were drinking and wanted to snap some photos of, well, anyways.. They borrowed my camera. Now, my camera isn't high quality, but I didn't want to get a new camera til around Christmas time as that would be my gift to myself.. I may have to invest earlier than I thought. It doesn't focus like it used to.. You have to take the photo and cross your fingers that it isn't too blurry. Plus it makes weird noises when you try to get it to focus. My brother says I am just trying to blame that on him.. But he does have a history of wrecking cameras.. Who knows what happened.. I just know that ever since he 'borrowed' it, it hasn't been the same. Prepare for sucky photos!!


Ok, so, what you're looking at is CC Warhol with Island Girl Hawaii: Pink sponged on top. Actually, Warhol reminds me of the Claire's mood polish I have.. I might have to do a comparison between the two. The two pinks don't look very different in either photo, but the top one is supposed to sort of show how they differ. IRL you can tell, honest!

And now to toss in a photo of Bennie because.. I went to check on him the other day.. And he had wrapped himself in his blanket.. Plus he is smiling.. Makes me chuckle!

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!
