That Bloody Thing

Yay October! Like many of you out there, October is my favourite time of year. My favourite season (fall), my favourite month and my favourite 'holiday'.. Actually, technically I have to be careful when saying that as I am Canadian and we do have a legit holiday this month.. Which is Thanksgiving! Woo! But I am talking about that pseudo holiday, Halloween.

I decided month and months ago that I would dedicate the month of October to strictly Halloween-esque nails. And I am staying true to my word.

The problem? The other day on Polish or Perish, one of the members posted THIS and I fell in love! I can no longer drink soda.. Which isn't so bad, but someday I want a glass so bad.. No idea why. Sort of weird. My favourite soda was/is Dr. Pepper, so when this Dr. Pepper mani was posted up I knew I had to do it. In my mind it would stomp that craving for some smooth DP.

So. I did it. LOVED it. Then, 3 hours later, I was bored. And I realized we're in October. Duh Dee, you promised yourself Halloween nails ALL MONTH LONG.

Easy fix? Bloody nails.

Sorry, you're getting pre-clean up shots. I was just about to go to bed.. But realized that I was working the next day and these bad boys would probably be destroyed.. They actually survived, but there is some dents that I don't appreciate, so you have to make do with this - I'm sorry!

Notice anything? Yeah! My trap door nail is GONE!!! It is really, really short.. And it hurts a bit when you touch it (with added pressure) but it is paintable! Soooo happy! Now random people don't have to ask why one of my nails is never painted. Rejoice!


I used two coats of Quirius Ruby Pumps over two coats of CG Liquid Leather followed by two thick coats of dripping blood courtesy of Essie Lollipop.

Whelp, that is all for now! I am not sure if I'll be back with a post again this week or not. We'll see how well these gems wear through the week. Plus I am STILL waiting for some polishes to arrive. This is the longest they have ever taken to get into my mitts. I am not impressed! Ahh well.

Have a terrific Tuesday everyone!

OH! AND! Side note: Are there any Halloween-esque nails 'y'all' want me to take a... stab at? Let me know via comment, twitter or e-mail and I will be happy to try!

  • Zara - Thankies! I just couldn't decide.. And since they are both sparkly and wonderful, I figured they would compliment each other. And luckily the effect is nice!!
  • shortwidenails - Ooh silver! I didn't even think of that! That would be a nice way to top it all off as well. And I know exactly how you feel on the ideas:nails ratio!
  • maRyya - Glad you enjoyed your visit. I will going to scope out your blog right after I hit 'publish post'.

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
