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).

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!
