Scribbled Paint

That is what I think about when I see this image plate used..

I was feeling a bit lazy the other day.. That and I had about 30 minutes until it was errand running time.. BUT! I had naked nails. I do not like that.

I had Little Drummer Boy still sitting at the desk.. So I slapped on some of that.. Then sprinted to the collection area and nabbed Adore and an image plate.



Sorry for the messy photo. I took another photo two days later, but there is some chipping on my index nail. What I am excited about is that I have been working a bit more on the light box. The polish bottle photo is using the improved box. I haven't perfect my camera settings to it yet.. And I am not sure if I like the lamp/light YET, but I don't want to correct things too much to this camera as my Christmas gift to myself will be a new camera. This bad boy is just over 3 years old. He has served his purpose!

Oh, the colours used are: CG Little Drummer Boy & CG Adore stamped with konad image plate m70.

I was procrastinating cleaning up my room and or computer desk.. Get started.. Then decide to do this post instead. Now I start back at work tomorrow.. Gee.. I guess this cleaning will have to wait until next week (;

Have an excellent weekend everyone! Yay for staff Christmas party tomorrow!! I might have to do my nails up.. But we are going bowling.. hmm.. tough call!!

  • Zara - They were pretty great! Sadly I didn't get any photos of them.. I waited til the next day AFTER work, and they were chipped everywhere. It was still fun for a day!!
  • KarenD - Haha glad I am not the only one that thought they could be similar! Now I am just glad that I second guessed my second guess (a third guess?) and bought it anyways.
  • Lois - I am really glad I have both!! And I know, I am seriously the worst for that!!
  • shortwidenails - Haha, I so should have! Then maybe it would have gone differently :( I don't think I have anything that can dupe anything else I have.. I am just starting to work on getting photos of all my polish.. So I guess we'll see in a bit. I'm nervous about having dupes.. Then I will just be angry with myself! Even angrier if I have been using both and not noticing as well (;

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
