A Comparison To Ease My Mind

The other day I ventured in to the Chatters supply store.. Now, in my defense, I was actually trying to find a bottle of Party Hearty for someone else (: BUT! Of course I was snooping around.. Me snooping around nail polish is never a good idea.

I picked up a bottle of Little Drummer Boy.. And LOVED it. Then more wandering.. Then I looked at it again and put it back.. Because my mind was telling me I had something really close to it at home. After setting it back down, I found the Burlesque collection.. And nabbed a bottle of Glow Up Already (green glitter.. of course I had to have it!).. I was about to pay, but instead I turned around and grabbed Little Drummer Boy again.


When I got home.. I looked at Little Drummer Boy with delight, but that nagging feeling came back. I searched through the polish collection and spotted Midnight Mission. My brain yelled 'see! see! SEE!!!!'


Little Drummer Boy is on the left, Midnight Mission to the right. To my absolute delight.. They are quite different! I now feel I am justified to own both! Though.. I have to say.. Midnight Mission looks like Russian Navy Suede when I add a top coat.. Oh well!! I am just happen to have both of these gems within my collection.

Now to quickly remove this and green up my nails. The Saskatchewan Roughriders are in the Grey Cup (Canadian version of the Super Bowl) final today.. Against Montreal.. Who beat us last year because of a devastating call.. Anyways! Redemption time! I am thinking green and sparkley.. (:

They definitely don't lookalike, you did a good thing buying that polish, haha! I'm exactly the same, even though I only need one thing, I always come back with more!

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.

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.
