Suede Flowers

Just a quick post as I have to run out with the bro (Happy Birthday!!!) and exchange his new jeans.. AGAIN! I thought birthday gifts were supposed to be easy..

The other night I took to my twitter to ask for an idea on how to polish up thee old nails. Gingerkittyd said I should konad with matte polish over glossy polish.. Sounded amazing! But sadly a combination of things kept this look from happening. 1. My stamping skillz are not up to par 2. I just couldn't get anything to go well. Once I did have all my nails stamped, I hated it!! Not the idea, I just thought it looked sloppy (it was all my fault though!!)

So. Removed everything and started again. I didn't know what to do and I was too lazy to go grab a brush, so I used a pencil with my suede polish and made these flowery.. things?


I apologize for the chips. We went to my friends cabin for the weekend.. Of course I forgot to take the picture beforehand. Still, without a top coat, this actually held out fairly well.

My favourite part is that when we were driving home on Sunday, we decided to stop for a sit-down-meal at Boston Pizza before finishing our trip. Just before we left, I ran to use the washroom and this little girl was outside the door.. I went to push the door open and she said 'your nails are beautiful'... I was elated! I said 'thank you so much sweetie' and went on my way. That comment made me feel better for the rest of the trip home. (Right now road trips take a ton of energy away from me.. It makes me sad!) So at least I was happy when I fell asleep for a bit.. Hah!

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is having a great week! Gotta run!!

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!
