Boredom Overcome By Party Hearty

Hello everyone!

I have a day off today.. And quickly became very bored. I started working on making a light box.. And then I sliced myself and didn't want to do a perfect job anymore (heh).

Then, as I was tending to my newly self inflicted wound, I noticed my nails were bare.. So I then picked out nine random bottles.. Well, not really random.. But it'll look that way!

In this lineup we have: CG OMG, Liquid Leather, Jolly Holly & Midnight Kiss; Essie Mesmerize & Lolipop (side note: I just noticed that Essie 'Lollipop' is just 1 l.. Geez louise! I always was using deux l's..); OPI Alpine Snow & Sapphire In The Snow; BYS Yellow Sunshine.

Now, you're probably thinking that is the strangest polishes together.. And you're right. I do some weird combos, but I don't think I would be able to do something with all of these gems.. Oh right, the post title. You caught me. They are all going to be meeting up with..

This guy, CG Party Hearty.

I am going to use this time to apologize for some of the photos. The light box is not perfected.. I like some of the photos and others are really yellowed out! I promise to work on this so that my photos can look more visually appealing! I also didn't do any cleanup on my nails - sorry x 2!!




I have also misplaced my 1 coat'er photos.. Grr! Once I find them I will edit this post.. ANYWAYS! The photos containing Party Hearty are with two coats. Most of the colours didn't surprise me with how awesome they looked with PH.. The one that really made me happy?

Essie Mesmerize with 2 coats of PH. I really didn't think the blue would look that great with red and green sparkles.. But, I proved myself wrong.

This post is actually a bit of a bust.. And for that I do apologize! Maybe I will post something up tomorrow with better photos..

BUT! What I can say is that I absolutely love PH! It is going to be perfect for holiday manis.. And I would especially recommend it if you're a person that just enjoys wearing polish without adding nail art.. As this adds that little extra without being too over the top! LOVE!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday! I am going to go do some more work on the light box.. And paint my nails (:

  • shortwidenails - Oh, she has been painting/doing nail art for about as long as I have.. So technically, she is already one of us (: Seriously, I think you should get it - it is gorrrgeous!! My dress was just a dark plum colour.. So I figured since it was plain, I could dress it up with shoes (cheetah print flats) and of course my nails.. And surprisingly enough, it all worked out well together! Also something strange.. My sister and I were both 'dressed up' and yet we didn't take a single photo. I was in a dress and she in a skirt.. I thought the world might end, but, luckily, it didn't!

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).

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
