I was tagged by two awesome ladies for this award. EDIT: HUGE thankies to KattVeronicaColorfulbottle

7 Things About Me:
  1. I am currently awaiting my acceptance letter for school. I think I finally found something I really want to do! I will share more later as I really do not want to jinx that acceptance letter!
  2. I read. A. Lot. I actually keep track of the books I read.. I am hoping to actually get to 50+ books this year.. I only made it to 42 last year! I blame surgery getting in the way.. I enjoy excuses!
  3. I have a fondness for exclamation marks.
  4. I despise onions. I will actually sit and pick them out of my meal.. Even if they are tiny. Yet, I will eat an onion ring or two.. And that is all onion basically. I am strange.
  5. I have lost a lot of weight within the last 5 months. I don't notice it a lot.. Then you try on something that is sizes and sizes smaller and I have to choke back a sob. It isn't so much the amount, it is just the changes in everything. I am strongly in like with myself.
  6. I might have one of the strangest travel ipod mixes around.. It goes from The Talking Heads to The Roots.. Extremely slow/sad tunes to uptempo techno'y songs.. And I enjoy every minute of it!!
  7. I personally believe I have one of the most functionally 'dysfunctional' families ever.. I would never trade a moment I have shared with them.. Even the terrible times, as they helped to shape our closeness. Also, the friends that I have kept for many years.. They are my family as well.

I am awarding the following blogs:

Here is where I am bad with awards.. I never know exactly who I should tag.. I mean, what if I tag 15 people and someone else is like 'she is such a magoon.. why wouldn't she toss me the award?' - I would feel horrible! And I really do not enjoy that feeling. SO! Here is my proposal.. If you haven't been awarded this award and you want it.. Take it from me as an award.. Because honestly, anyone that follows me (I follow back!) - then you're obviously rad and I enjoy your blog!!

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).

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.

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…
