My Christmas Nails

I finally did some. Took me long enough!!

Here are the nails that I have been sporting for Christmas.

I got the idea from WAH Nails. I am pretty sure the first way I saw them was with green, but they have a bunch of photos with the candy canes on a gold background.






Now, I cannot hear you gasping, but in my mind I can hear it. Why? Well, because of the extreme whiteness of this photo. My dad gave us a bunch of cash for Christmas (he also bought us a blu-ray player AND an xbox, plus the kinect.. it has been an amazing holiday season for us!!) - so, with some of the $$ he gave to moi, I bought myself a new camera.

I haven't mastered the settings on it. Which could explain how white my hands are. BUT. I kid you not, that is seriously how pale I am. All. The. Time.

NOW! Besides that.. I like the photos I am seeing from this camera. The images are very sharp/crisp and I love that!

Oh. Polish used.. CG Jolly Holly, OPI Alpine Snow, Essie Lolipop, CG Liquid Leather and CG Party Hearty.

Downfall? I filmed a tutorial the other day on my roses mani.. And uploaded it.. Or so I thought. Then I deleted without checking the folder, because, well, my other camera ALWAYS put EVERYTHING into said file. The new kid needs to be trained. Needless to say, tutorial video is gone.

BUT! I will re-film. Maybe even tomorrow. We shall see!!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I am kind of considering a nap. I worked this morning, came home, played kinect sports and now am tired. Heh.

Talk to you all again soon. I think I am going to change my nails this evening (:



  • shortwidenails - I used dotting tools (: I tried to film a tutorial.. Yet failed to upload it properly.. Grr!! But I will re-film and have a tutorial up early in the week (:

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.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

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…

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).

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!
