Yellow and Gold Bracelet

What do these 3 random colours have in common?



Other than the fact that they don’t really go together?

They are what make up the next manicure I am going to show you all!!



I got the idea from a bracelet I saw in an InStyle magazine from 2008? Maybe 2009? It could have even been 2010.. I am not entirely sure. I know I have mentioned my ‘inspiration folder’ within my computer, but what I have also started is a ‘real life’ inspiration folder – it now is a complete page within the folder! Yay! Means more tutorials.

Wait.. Tutorials? Oh right! I filmed how I went about making this manicure. I hope you’ll watch and enjoy – and maybe test it out for yourself? I would love to see the results; maybe with some other colours? Anything!

While I am speaking of video tutorials, Li Lian of shortwidenails had asked about my roses manicure I did HERE.. I actually filmed a video quite awhile back, but I, of course, didn’t upload from the camera properly and deleted everything.. I got a chance to re-film about a week ago and just found the time to do a slight edit and get it done. You can check that out HERE.

3 videos now.. 2011 is already looking promising for video filming. Any looks that I have done in the past that you would want to see as a video tutorial? I would be happy to oblige in any type of request. You can leave me a comment here on the blog or toss me an e-mail!

I hope you all had an amazing day!!

**I haven't answered any comments in the last little while, so I will just address them all right now!!**
  • Trincess - You really should! I think you would do an amazing remake of that mani! Maybe next Christmastime?!
  • DesertNails8 - Thank you! I agree - I like it in any light conditions! I have already recreated that look on my mother.. The sister is asking me to do it for her as well! Seems to be a crowd pleaser!!
  • shortwidenails - Glad you're alive! It has been quiet without you!! I think that is actually my favourite as well.. Or Old Wallpaper.. I like both of them for different reasons. I imagine it would - I was looking at Dorothy Who? the other day.. But grabbed CG Atlantis instead!
  • Doo - I am glad you like that one - it is really fun and easy to do.. I think I will have to mess around with other colour combos! Awe, thanks. I can honestly say I enjoyed painting each and every one of them! 
  • shortwidenails - Haha! I love that! Glitter polish is a real life saver! I think I now remember why I have never used them again.. Give it another 6 or so months and I'll try them again.. Only to be disappointed! I am excited to test out Atlantis.. Just have to think of something to do with it.

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
