Guest Nails Vol. 1

Hey everyone!

I feel like I haven't posted in FOREVER! For that, I do apologize. Work has been kicking my ace lately.. And now that I have a few days off, I am totally slacking. Ugh.

Yesterday, my friend (and awesome co-worker) Amy stopped by. She had asked if I could do her nails for Halloween. I was pretty excited to be asked because I have only done one other persons nails.. aka my mom. Ok, and I have helped my sister.. Once.

ANYWAYS! I do believe her and some of her friends are dressing up as The Pussycat Dolls (awesome) and she wanted her nails to match this smokin' cheetah print bra she has.




The nails photographed a bit brighter than they really are! And I left her a bit of a mess due to the sponging! We started off with OPI Dim Sum Plum, then we sponged some combo of Quirius Purple Passion, CC Warhol, Island Girl Hawaii Purple and CC Mrs. Robinson and this is what the outcome was.

She said she likes them and I do as well! It was fun to do someone elses' nails for once - plus, it doesn't hurt that she has GORGEOUS nails to begin with (:

I will probably back later with my final Halloween nail post.. Unless someone goes wrong tomorrow and they chip horribly.. And I will have to do ANOTHER Halloween themed mani.. Not that I would complain!

I will also answer past comments on the next entry - Take care til then!!

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…
