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.. Check it out!!


Her nails are obviously better than mine, but I tried. It didn't really turn out camo-esque, but, I don't hate them. She also used yellow as her base, but I really wanted to use Electric Pineapple. Badly.

I ended up using: CG Electric Pineapple & OPIs: No Room For The Blues, Elephantastic Pink and A Grape Fit!

I also used a dotting tool, which was provided to me by Born Pretty 

There is nothing currently wrong with these nails, but I think my nail painting habit has mutated. I fight myself to not paint my nails something different everyday! It.. Is actually beginning to feel like a sickness. I may or may not be worried.


  • shortwidenails - They are rather amazing.. Now I kind of want to sport them! My mom just has to put up with it. She asks me to paint her nails, and it seems to me, the crazier, the better! She was pumped when I just put dots on her nails and then ecstatic when I added some cheetah/leopard-esque action. Have you ever asked your mom? Maybe she would surprise you!! And funny you should ask about my brother's nails. I don't think he would ever allow me to do some nail art test runs, but he does have to help me make some polish colour decisions every now and again. I ask for his input (:
  • Jeanelle - Yay! Glad you like them! And, they are very lucky, heh! My sister actually does her own nails 99.987% of the time, that evening I just felt like doing other peoples' nails. I told her she should let me start taking photos of the designs she does.. One of these days maybe..
  • Niki* - You so should!! You would do an awesome job of them!! And I shall go check that out once I hit 'publish post'.

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).

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..
