Sea Spray

I could not handle even 24 hours of just a polish.. I had to add SOMETHING to it..

I couldn't figure out what.. Then, after going to the gym with a pal and watching RED, I decided to play 'The Biggest Loser' on kinect.. I kept watching the water in the background, which led to what I painted on to my nails..



I admit, I apparently had the shakes last night.. I couldn't do any type of lines to save my life! All I did was take a white polish (I believe I used CG White Out), I placed a dot in a different position on every nail, then followed the dot out with lines.. I do like this.. It is tres simple, but effective. Maybe next time I attempt it, I won't be so shaky!

Have an awesome Thursday everyone! I have some errands to run, followed by painting and putting a room back together.. Should be fun!!

I am on the hunt for OPI Black Shatter - Thanks for the tip Alyssa!! - I plan on having it in my possession by the end of the day!!

I think this is a very nice mani, even though it's simple! I think I'm going to do this at some point..

this is really cute. what brush did you use to do the design? a normal paint brush? how long is the bristles? I saw some brushes that had bristles that were 2 inchs long..that's a really long paint brush..not sure if I could control the design with such a long end.

im having the problem where I keep changing my polish. i mean my polish does'nt even last long enough for some kind of design
I love what you did here. Its fun and quirky.

Yes! Name-checked!!! Haha, hope you got the Black Shatter alright :)

PS- I was running some errands earlier today, and lo and behold- the confectionary across the street from your house had one sad, dusty bottle of SH Hidden Treasures tucked at the back of a display. I died from happiness.

This is really neat. I like the organic quality of it. Reminds me of elevation lines on topographical maps. <3

Gorgeous! I love it! And I can't believe you freehanded those lines so neatly!

I just found your blog, so decided to look at your previous posts. I really like this one, somehow it reminds of fingerprints - maybe I've watched to many episodes of CSI!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
