Electric Pineapple Attempts Camo

And sort of fails. Although, I don't hate this.. It just isn't quite how I wanted it to turn out.

First, I shall start off with a photo of Electric Pineapple on its own..


I feel it is the younger and more diluted brother of Who The Shrek Are You.. And I kind of like that! I feel this is going to be constantly on my toes during summer.. And I haven't been a toe painter in a long time, so that is saying A LOT!

Now, a bit of an intro to what I did to my nails after.. I was perusing nail art images, specifically for camo print nails.. And came across the forums at makeupgeek.com, specifically the thread of nail art.. The nail art photos are amazing, but one continuous poster caught my eye and it just so happens that she has a blog!! I am a little upset that I never came across her before, but I have to say.. I am in love with her work!! I feel that I will be using a lot of her images for upcoming looks!!

Her name is Kayla and she runs this BLOG and she is fantastic at nail art…

Guest Nails Vol. 2

Technically this should be 'Guest Nails Vol. 3', but I mislabeled my other guest nails.. Whoops!

I mentioned in my last post that I got to do my sister's nails and my mother's nails the other night.. And I said I would try to get photos..

I mean, obviously I got them.. Or this post wouldn't exist.. Right?!

On to the nails!!


First up are my sister's pokeball nails.. I cropped out her chipped nails.. So you don't get to see the whole hand.. I did it as a favor to her! They are actually really cute and fairly simple to do!! I used Essie Lollipop, CGs: White Out & Liquid Leather.


These are the nails I did for the mother. She told me to do whatever. So I did. The flash on the camera really changed the blue.. It is hard to believe that is Ogre-the-Top Blue. I used: CC High Society, OPI Ogre-the-Top Blue & CG Liquid Leather.

I think I will close this post with a Bennie photo, as it has been awhile since that rascal last made an appearance.


I think that abo…

Candy Swirls

Hello everyone! Today I am trying this whole 'scheduled post' business.. Fingers crossed that it actually works!!

Today I bring you my interpretation of these rad nails I found via tumblr last week..


Once again I apologize for my extremely worn out cuticles/surrounding areas.. I have been diligently applying every lotion/oil/gel in my possession, and these bad boys are the results. Le sigh.

To create these, I used: CG White Out, OPIs: Mod About You & Shorts Story and of course my nails' bff.

I actually started out trying to do something else involving Mod About You, but when those nails did not pan out.. I still really wanted to use that colour.. So, to zee inspiration folder I went.. And of course I wanted to do something super girly! Success!

Actually, last night was a lot of fun for me on the painting of nails front. I did my sister's nails first.. They are pokeballs!! Then I did my own.. Once the mother caught wind that I was doing nails, she of course wanted her…

St. Patrick's Day Nails

This post is going mostly be about my St. Patrick's Day nails.. But I had to mix in some other random photos/stories as well.. Which I usually do.. Anyways, onwards to the post!


Since I am doing St. Patrick's Day themed nails, I obviously have to do something with my favourite colour: green. I personally love every shade you can throw at me.. Even the crazy 'puke' greens. I can never get enough green! For the look I did, I used: CC Twiggie and OPI Jade Is The New Black. I also used a dotting tool that was sent to me for review from Born Pretty.


And here they are. Hopefully you can tell that I TRIED to do clovers.. I don't hate these, but I don't really love them either.. And some look half decent.. Others.. Erm, not so much! But whatever, I tried!!

Oh, and, Happy Birthday to YD if you ever stumble across this post! Your date of birth is totally and completely fitting of a 'holiday' for you!!

The next thing I am going to talk about is the perfume I bought…

One Less Lonely Glitter Shattered + Nautical Nails

I know I should really hold on to one of these 'posts' so I can spread them out a bit.. But if I do that, I will forget to post them and they will be lost in a sea of other photos. So, you all get two different looks in one post.

I am going to start with One Less Lonely Glitter, which is in the Nicole by OPI Bieber collection. My sister, her bff and I were out shopping last weekend.. And we stumbled over the Bieber collection.. I wasn't overly excited by any of the polishes (don't get me wrong, they are lovely.. but.. I feel like I have a lot of the shades in my collection already..) Then I stumbled upon OLLG and fell in love. But I didn't pick it up that day.. I just kept thinking about it. I ended up back there a couple of days later and snagged a bottle of it!





Now, you all know by now that I am not just a swatch kind of person.. Nor am I one to really just wear a polish and be happy. There has to be something else to it.. Although I did love this all on its own.…

My Cuticles Are Terrifying

I am currently sporting OPI Alpine Snow with some OPI Black Shatter over top.. Which makes up my favourite combo (black and white!!) - BUT - I was just looking at the photos I took.. And.. My cuticles are extremely scary.

I mentioned I have been really sick.. When I get sick (I assume this happens with a lot of people), my skin gets really dry.. Despite my best efforts (high H2O intake, lotions, etc) my skin is extremely dry. Especially my cuticles and surrounding nail area. I should just leave that alone.. Right? Wrong. I am a picker. I usually pick and peel my skin until I bleed. I don't even notice sometimes until I use the washroom or something and have to wash my hands.. Then, voila! Blood. Bad Dee!!

I will give you a photo of something I wore last week. My mother and I were meeting up with a friend of hers (and her friend's daughter) to see a movie. I really do not like going out and not having my nails painted.. So I quickly applied this to my nails. I know I have an im…

Absence

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to get in a quick post explaining why I have not been posting too much lately.

It isn't because I don't want to be. Honestly, I would much rather be doing my nails everyday than not. No, the reasons I haven't been updating a couple times a week are: work and being extremely sick.

Now, work happens. Extra shifts happens, etc. Usually no big deal. BUT. With those added shifts, I just decide to skip doing my nails as they get wrecked right away anyways. I think the month of March returns to normal for me though.. Well, near the end of the month it will get crazy, but that is quite a bit away.

I was actually sick not too long ago.. Now I am sick once again. I figured this was just a sinus infection, but now I am thinking it might be something a bit stronger. Ugh. I really do not like going to see a doctor when I am sick as I always feel I would be taking up someone else's time who might be worse off than me. I know it is stupid, especially since…
