Turn That Frankenstein...

...Into A Frankenfine.. I'm sorry. I'm slightly sleep deprived and have random quotes swimming in my mind. I am pretty sure that is from Dodgeball..

I just got back from my travels to my 3 month post-op appointment (I have to travel to another city (Regina), which is about 2.5 hours away..) - AND - All appears to be going quite well for me.

On the way home, the father and I made detours and I got four massive pumpkins! 2 for moi and 2 for the sister. 4 pumpkins weighing in at a grand total of 108 lbs! Insanity! Now I have to figure out what I want to carve.. Or possibly make stencils (my genius favourite friend explained pumpkin stencil making to me the other day.. I would have never guessed!)

Anyways! Enough about my day.. Well, the beginning of my day. I am going to show you all what I am currently sporting. The video tutorial (not by me!) can be found HERE.


I have been getting compliments by everyone. And, they are super easy to do! And.. well, they are quite cute! My sister and I were actually watching 'Hocus Pocus' the other night (when I painted these bad boys) and they actually remind me of Billy from the movie. Moving on..


For this I used: Seche Clear Base Coat, OPI Who The Shrek Are You, CG Liquid Leather, SH Salon All The White Stuff and, of course, Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

THEN! When I arrived home, I was getting ready to race to my computer and formulate a letter to TD about my order.. I placed it on September 22.. And it is October 12.. It has NEVER taken them longer than a week to arrive to me.. Luckily enough, a mini package was waiting for me! Yay!

Here we have CG: Zombie Zest, Ick-A-Bod-Y & Mummy May I, Orly Halleys Comet, OPI Ski Teal We Drop, and CND: Colour Urban Oasis and Effects Teal Sparkle.

 I am obviously extremely excited about all of them.. But I am particularly excited to try the CND. PLUS! They have colour with the amazing Canadian 'u'. I am really not one for layering, but after the fun I had testing out the Dr. Pepper mani, this seems like a good plan!

I am a bit sad though.. I wish these would have arrived a few days earlier.. I would have swapped out Who The Shrek Are You and used Zombie Zest instead. Ahh well.. Now to use these three Halloween inspired polishes to finish off my Halloween Month themed nails!!

Have a great day everyone!

  • Zara - Yay! Thank you! That took me awhile to get them just *so*
  • shortwidenails - I thought it would take forever to dry, but it actually wasn't too bad. I also thought I would catch them on everything and have to change the mani soon after.. It lasted me a full week!!

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
