This evening, after I returned home from a friends house, I came to the computer desk and looked over at the goodies that had been sent to me. Then, an idea formed. Sure, I don't want to take off my current mani, so why not bust out the fake nails and go to town?

Perfect.



First, the C/Krackle polish. Love. It. I am actually going to take off my 5 point flower mani tomorrow (after running a bunch of errands) and slap this on. I might even use the same colours. I didn't add the thumb in as it just didn't work. I am not sure if it is because I used a glitter polish or what - but I will work on that! After they were done crackling, I topped it with Seche Vite. I am really excited to do this to my own nails!

Then we have an attempt at Cheetah print.. I think I am starting to maybe get the hang of it? Although, despite what I am saying, I actually kind of love this. I used CG II as the base, then used my new love, dotting tool, along with OPI OPI & Apple Pie. Then I added the orange coloured rhinestones for some.. dimension!

Ok, so, this look was probably the most disappointing to me. I just couldn't get the pearls to go where I wanted and my bows are a bit wonky.. And adding the glitter was.. Well, anyways! I used OPI A Shorts Story followed by Street Wear Glitter. Then I used some of the pearls for the middle of the bow. Cute idea, I just need to execute it better!!

Now something that I wasn't enjoying while painting it, but then loved it afterward.. Started off with OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue (which I am disappointed that I have never used before!!!) followed with some sections of Orly Halleys Comet. Then I went rhinestone crazy..

So, that is it for now.. I just bought Essie Little Brown Dress and am kind of dying to test it out! I think I just might have to do that!

I hope everyone has an amazing Friday night and a great weekend (:

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!
