Skeleton Leaf

Hello everyone! Hope you're all having a great Thursday!

I am going to show you a look I did last night, but, I didn't know how it would turn out, so I had only painted one hand, then removed it. BUT! I actually really do like this look.

I used CG Midnight Mission (dark blue) and Diamond Cosmetics Blue Diamonds as well as OPI Alpine Snow. I was originally going to just use one blue, but I couldn't decide between these two gems, so why not use both?!

The inspiration behind this mani was this photo..


I was trying to film a tutorial on a different look today.. The filming wasn't going too badly, but I messed up a bunch of times.. SO! I will give it another whirl either later today or maybe tomorrow - I really do want to start filming tutorials.. Plus I have a genius film editing brother that I want to put to good use.

Anyways, that is all for now. Enjoy the rest of your day (:

I think I have helped her with a design twice? And I do believe I have asked for her assistance once.. I am trying to convince her to let me post her manis on here as well! I think I almost have her to her breaking point.. Ugh! I totally didn't know about Movember! I love that! Please do these then, I look forward to seeing them!! I am working up my nerves to photo posting - haha! And don't feel silly about the dish pit thing.. I could have been calling anything that - right!!

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).
