Striped Nails

Hello everyone!

I bring you my striped nails that I did the other day.. The idea is actually from an image that I made a few years back as a background for a webpage.. I was clicking on my picture folder and just before I could head over to my nail art inspiration video, I saw that image and thought it was perfect for some nail art!


For this look I used: OPI Alpine Snow, CG Liquid Leather, OPI Who The Shrek Are You?, Quirius Lucy Diamond & CG Heli-Yum.

ALSO.. If any of you are interested.. I made a VIDEO to go along with this post. Yeah, I finally made a video! I had my awesome brother edit it.. I think I am going to need his help for a bit longer. He uses vegas as an editor.. He made it look so easy and I know it really isn't that easy!

Anyways, please, check out the video and lemme know what you think!!

Also, since I can do videos now.. Is there a look I have posted up before that you want to see done as a tutorial? Let me know and I will comply!!

I hope everyone has an awesome Friday night and a great weekend!!

  • KarenD - Yay! Glad someone agrees with me! Yeah.. Hopefully the next time I do swatching, I will have some better photos to share (:
  • shortwidenails - I am surprised that you haven't found a supplier for CG in Vancouver.. That just blows my mind!! BUT! I am glad to make you want to get Party Hearty!! I even checked at Chatters today for ya - but of course they are all sold out! Grr! I hope you can still buy off of ebay - it will be well worth it!! I have a mini bottle of MAAH.. I might just have to consider it for a New Years mani! I also might have to convince her.. We'll see! Haha, and my brother as well (: - I agree about it on the yellow.. I thought it would be a fun idea, but it is really, well, blah!

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
