Line Time

Hey everyone!

Just a quick post, as I am fairly sure these nails will be gone-zo after tomorrow, which makes me a sadface, but such is life. I apologize for the chips already. Work.. Ruins everything.. But I also like money.. Such a rude cycle!



I got the idea for these gems HERE and came up with.. well, that which you see above! I like that her lines are more.. free? Despite my best efforts to not follow a pattern, I still see a slight pattern. I can never just let go! Some day.. or week.. or month.. year maybe?

Also.. Watermarking.. The little corner watermark that I used in these or the old diagonal action I used in some of my old posts.. Lemme know!! 

I used: Orly Mirror Mirror, CGs Peachy Keen, Re-Fresh Mint and Lemon Fizz as well as OPI Shorts Story.

The reason I tossed in my base polish and top polish is to show I have swapped for now. I usually use China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat - and I still absolutely love it - but I am seriously falling for this Nail Life Gripper polish. Lesigh. So nice! I will be going back to my Seche Vite top coat asap though.. This Barielle speed dry is just not cutting it! Also, with Seche, I can do my designs/art and instantly apply. With this bad boy, I allow my work to sit for a few moments before applying (to give it a fair shot) and it still DRAGS the polish. Lame!

Also.. I am such a genius (note: sarcasm) I LOST the battery charger for my new camera. I have seriously searched every conceivable place for it.. So disappointed in myself. For now I have to use my old camera (which I had graciously handed over to my brother, then not so graciously took it back.. for now!) I went to Best Buy to try and buy another charger, but they are ridiculously expensive (plus, at the time, I was extremely sick and had a gross coughing fit in the store.. I keep it classy).. Thank God for ebay is all I have to say. I am hoping to get the set I ordered some time next week.. Fingers crossed!!

I hope everyone is having an amazing weekend!!





  • jaljen - Thank you.. I think I agree with you.. I am glad to have been unsafe for once (:
  • Zara - Thanks.. I agree, the design that was made was amazing.. I am happy to be able to do a slight replication!! And with colours that I really like!!
  • Danielle - Thank you, thank you!!
  • DesertNails8 - Haha! Yes! That is exactly what it is! Coughing up a lung with the ever so classy 'lung butter'.. The cough isn't as frequent now, but it is still just as terrible. I am almost thinking I am dealing with pneumonia.. Fun fun!
  • Lacey - Thank you, glad you do (:
  • shortwidenails - Ask and you shall receive.. I do warn you though.. It is pretty scary! I tried to organize it a time or three.. Serious business! I don't have done out in deco.. I was going to use A Grape Fit (as it is what I have) - Did I mention a polish that I love that I need more of? There are many!!
  • ABOP - Yay! Thank you so much.. I am happy that my recreation didn't disappoint!!

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!
