Bowed Blues

Tuesday nights are usually my 'it's time to get down to business and paint your nails!' night, but, I do have to work the next day (aka today).

I worked on filming a tutorial last night. Then, once I was done that and had nothing on my nails again, I felt.. sad? So. I did my nails anyways.

And now I'm still upset because they will be ruined today. It is extremely simple, but, in my mind, effective.

I apologize in advance because these pictures are probably going to be HUGE! (edit: nevermind, they aren't overly large!) I have to play with my camera size settings so I can get it to where I want. (I know how to do this - I just haven't.. yet.. yeah!)




I used two coats of Revlon Royal. I caved. I have seen these polish swatched in so many places! I had to have it! And, I'm happy I do. I love it!! Then, of course, I was bored. I grabbed Adoree Seaport Blue and sponged that on the tips. I should have left it, but I wanted to add something to it. I grabbed konad image plate m77 along with the white polish and added bows. I couldn't stop there though. I added in some silver rhinestones to the middle of the bows. Perfect.

I really like this mani. Sadly, it will be ruined today. Oh well, at least its memory is now captured in photos. Enjoy!!

Have a great day everyone! I better go pack some polish with me.. I am going on an overnight adventure.. My sister is housesitting, but has to go back to work tomorrow.. So we'll switch and I'll stay and watch the home (and adorable pets!) til the owners get back!! (Yaz you lucky magoo!) - Take care!!

Very nice in both the strong light and low light conditions. It looks like a bit of magic in the low light photo!

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).

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
