Rose Comforter

Hey everyone!

My nails right now totally make me think of a B&B and what I hope they would either have as their comforter/bedspread or wallpaper. Strangely enough, I love it.

I feel this photo doesn't quite do it justice, but all of my other snapshots sucked, so this will have to do!


I also have to apologize for my cuticles. I have been doing a bunch of baking, cleaning and dishes lately. Despite slathering in cuticle oil and lotion every night, they still look like that! Grr! I figure the cold weather doesn't help things much either.

I know my roses are not the greatest, but for my first attempt, I am quite pleased.

I chuckled quite a bit over them this afternoon. There I was, clutching an xbox controller, playing UFC, career mode with my awesome figher, with super girly nails. Sigh.


Here is what was used: CGs Re-Fresh Mint & Lemon Fizz, Konad Special Nail Polish in White, OPI Shorts Story, CG White Out & Brucci Roberta's Green Garden. Also, I used Konad image plate m79 and a dotting tool.

Dotting tool sent to me from Born Pretty Store for review.

I really wanted to either do a full crackle nail mani OR use my new Essie Little Brown dress.. But for some reason I just had to do this.

I did want to use December as a month to just showcase Christmas themed manis, but I really couldn't be bothered. Which is strange. I think I will have Christmas-y nails on Christmas and that is all..

I hope everyone is having an terrific Thursday! See you soon (:






  • Jennifer Leigh - Thankies! It is so fun to use (:
  • shortwidenails - I haven't tried it on my own nails yet.. But I don't think it should be too hard to remove. I will let you know though - I mean, it cannot be as bad as glitter, right? These rhinestones are larger than the set I bought years ago, but I kind of like them.. If I am going to sport rhinestones, I don't want them to be subtle! ;p
  • KarenD - Oh yes, it is kind of a hard choice now.. Just do something with polish or add some goodies? I am not complaining though!!

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!
