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!!

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!
