Fail Nails

Good day everyone! Today I am bringing you a couple of fail nails. I decided to post these up regardless of how terrible they are.. Just to be honest and show that not everything I attempt works out.


Here is the first set. Ugh. I think the moons are what I hate the most. These just didn't work.


These I actually liked.. Except for the fact that my middle finger chipped after 1 day!! That NEVER happens to me anymore. Sure, I was at work.. But still, usually does not happen after a single day. And I actually should have reversed Ick-A-Bod-Y and Breakin', but oh well!!

I really shouldn't even bother painting my nails today as I have a bunch of work in the next week.. But oh well! I probably will anyways. I really want to try that infected stitches look that Dollface posted up the other day!!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! I am going to be enjoying some delicious Thanksgiving supper this evening.. We pushed it back a week to enjoy with the uncle that is visiting.. Turns out that he had to go home early for work, so now one of my friends is going to take his place.

OH! And a photo to save this post from being all about fails..

Mr. Bennie and Fonze. Fonze (the rabbit), just hops into Bennie's cage. They are pretty adorable together. And despite Bennie's rat-like appearance, he is actually closely linked to rabbits. I think Fonze helps to fill the void of Jet being gone.

Have a super day all!!

  • shortwidenails - I also love Halloween nails - cute ones just add in a fun little mix! OMG! I actually kind of agree with finding the cat (Zachary Binks or Binx?) hot.. It does have a lot to do with the accent! I will definitely post up pumpkin pics. They are usually my pride and joy of Halloween! I just hope I can figure out what I want to carve soon, it is making me nervous!! I am the official candy hander-outter. Plus, I like when I get to hear all the compliments about my pumpkins and decorations. AND hear the mini shrieks when the welcome mat screams at people (: Halloween nails are all I will be posting for the month, so yes, more to come!!

I need to start posting my fails. I'm so terrible at getting pictures taken of the good ones let alone taking time out to do the icky ones too. :P

I got the last Color Club box set there was at our winners. :( I'm hopeful that they get more in stock! I am going to be haunting their beauty section regularly now! :) I almost missed the set at all. Walked by it twice looking for it.

i actually like your fail nails. the pumpkins looks really real...3d almost. i was gonna do halloween nails but i've been pumpkin carving too much that my nails are quite ugly now. chips here and there.

are there still a lot of kids in your neighbor hood? maybe 15 years ago there were a lot in my neighbor hood but as the kids got older they stopped trick or treating and they never moved from where they lived so no new kids came to the neighbor hood so now there aren't many kids anymore since my neighborhood is all adults/ people over 19. so u watching hocus pocus this year ? you have to!!!

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone! Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink Sally Hansen  Babe Blue Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Water Dotting Tool Bowl Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling. See you all again soon!

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Splatter Floral Nails

Hey everyone! Last night, after I did these nails and when I went to bed - I was quite pleased with my nails. When I woke up this morning, though, I wasn't overly crazy about them. I thought of a few things I could change so that I would really like them.. I am very tempted to take how I want them to look and recreate them before work.. I might just have to do it. Anyways! Really, there is nothing wrong with them.. I just sort of find them.. boring? Ah well! I used: Lime Crime Milky Ways China Glaze White On White OPI My Favourite Ornament China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer China Glaze Sweet Hook OPI Mod About You Formula X For Sephora Infatuated Orly Liquid Vinyl China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I made the roses with a "main" colour and white, then I did the details with the "main" colour and black mixed together. Again, I don't dislike these bad boys.. I am just not amazed by them! Also.. did you
