Innocent Mani

I would have to say that this is probably the most innocent looking mani I have ever seen.

I always loved the konad stamp that I used for this look. I was so excited when I realized it was on one of the plates that I won.. I feel with that using that image over this green looks.. Well, innocent. I cannot think of anything else to say about it.

I feel like a young girl about to have a tea party with her stuffed animals or something.

You might also notice that I clipped off my longer nails. I went back to work this past weekend, and while none of my nails were broken, there were a few chips and I just think it will be easier to have my nails a wee bit shorter. Right now they are a bit shorter than I would like them to be, but I must admit that typing is MUCH EASIER!

Now to the photos..


I used 2 coats of CG Re-Fresh Mint, then stamped with Konad special polish in white and sealed with Seche Vite. I am really pleased with Re-Fresh Mint, it is everything I thought it would be and more! I quite like this shade of green.

Now it is just time to rest. I went on some weird cleaning rampage today.. I think it was because I am feeling guilty. I was back to work on Sunday and Monday.. Today? I slept until really late in the afternoon. Whoops! Back to work again tomorrow, then some time off until Sunday again. I am tired just thinking about it!

Hope everyone is having a great day - and had an enjoyable long weekend!!

  • shortwidenails - Thank you! I actually do seem to be going through a lucky streak lately!! I actually really like the double ended stamper.. It gives you two options size-wise. I use the larger red stamper for full sized images (except for on my pinky nail as it is quite a bit smaller), and the little green stamper for smaller images as it gives you more placement freedom. All in all, I would say it is a good investment. If you're really thinking about getting one, let me know! I have a spare kicking around that will probably only collect dust!!

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.

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…
