Olive Mod

Hey everyone! Sorry it has been a little while since my last post. I have been busy and then extremely sick. I am still the latter part.. Fun times!!

I never did get a photo of my last manicure.. Super annoying. I really didn't like it, but I did get a ton of comments/compliments on it. I will have to do it again. I used a polish that I quite like and need to order more of.. ANYWAYS! Onwards to today..
***Not My Photo***
I kept looking at this photo in my inspiration photo.. And wanted to do it.. And I knew which purple I would use, etc. Then I remembered my 'untried' polish drawer calling out to me..

So I yoinked Essie Sew Psyched out of the drawer.. Grabbed a white (OPI Alpine Snow) and a green (CG Jolly Holly) and got to work.


And this was born. I really like Sew Psyched, I am not so psyched on the overall look though. I really wanted to use black and white, but that is so safe! Oh well! It has been fun to wear regardless. I will probably have to do something new tomorrow anyways. I have a bunch of cage cleaning, tidying up, cooking and baking to do today.. Plus more death coughing. I feel that entitles me to painting my nails tomorrow.

I hope everyone is having a great week!!

  • wahab - Yes.. Glowsticks are great. Yay marketing!

this is so cute! I think one day you will have to share your inspiration folder with me!

I wonder what purple that is...opi done out in deco maybe?

and what polish is the polish that you need to get more of that you absolutely love?
I love this, both the inspiration and your version of it! Great job.

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!

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.

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.
