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!!

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!

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

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.
