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 hers done as well. She is sporting some seriously bad ass looking cheetah/leopard/polka dotted nails. At her doctor's appointments, she was asked x 3 if they were nail stickers. I take that as a huge compliment!!

Hopefully I can snag some photos of their nails before they get chipped/wrecked! If all goes according to plan, I will share a snapshot of both on my next post.

Well, I better scuttle off to bed! Work in the am, then a super rad gym and movie date with a friend (:

OH! Wait.. Before I go..


I picked up these little fellow today.. CG Electric Pineapple. He did not photograph well, but he is a hybrid of lime green and yellow.. At least in my eyes. A very strange shade, which is why it caught my eye and landed itself at the till and then came home with moi!

Okay, now that is all!

Oh, no, I lied. The dad was asking if I had filmed anymore nail tutorials lately.. Which reminded me that I have not!! Anything I have posted lately that someone wants to see a tutorial of? I have a charger and backup battery for the camera now, so I am good to go!

Okay.. Done!




  • Zara - Thankies!! And lies.. I bet you would AND could make amazing shamrocks!!

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!

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

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.
