Gem Nails + Two New Kids

Last week, my friend asked me if I could do her nails (we will call her by my favourite nickname for her: Yaz). She really liked the nails that Samantha was sporting in SATC2. Yaz loaned me the other, which I watched on the computer so I could screen cap the nails as I could not find them via the internet ANYWHERE!

Then we did our take on them. Yaz has gel nails, and when she went to get them filled, they didn't have a nice dark blue (like Sam has) - so she decided on a lovely purple-magenta-y colour. We then used some nail gems and a couple polishes, along with a dotting tool, to achieve this:



I got to see them again last night.. We did these on either Wednesday or Thursday (I for the life of my cannot remember.. The days all blend together lately..) and she hasn't lost a single gem!

I have also acquired two new polish brands (to me!).. Meet my two newest children:

We have Zoya Valarie and Sparitual Drop Dead Gorgeous. When I ordered these, I was obviously loving purple. I ordered them from a new (to me) company that was recommended by a friend. I actually ordered three polishes.. And yet there are only two pictured. I am still waiting for OPI Black Shatter to show up. This company has terrible costumer service.. I will never be doing business with them again.

Which brings me to a question for all of you: What (if any) websites do you order polish from?


I used to order from TD, but now shipping is $20 regardless. I am looking for a place that either ships to Canada or is located in Canada, is up to date with collections AND won't cost me a small fortune to ship polishes.

I also had Valarie on for a few days.. I forgot to photograph before work yesterday.. The application and colour is amazing! I cannot wait to add more Zoya to my collection! And I am currently awaiting the arrival of my CG Crackle polishes! Woo!

That is all for now!

I'm looking for the same thing. It's probably impossible :( If any company is located in Canada, we have to pay almost double the price for the polish. No win win situation

Ditto, looking for the same thing! I hate feeling ripped off.

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.
