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!!

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
