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 about wraps it up for now. I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready to start an equally great week!! Til next time..

OH! I wanted to say that I received the GREATEST bbm AND photo from my favourite friend this evening.. She cheetah-upped her own nails! Using a toothpick! I LOVE them! Maybe I will get the photo on here (with her permission, of course) as I am extremely pleased with what she did! Gordo, you did me proud!! (: x 8000!!




  • Swaafie - Thank you! I honestly think that I will play with that colour on Tuesday evening! I am glad someone else shares my love for lime and yellow colours.. Specifically a hybrid of the two, heh.
  • Li Lian - Thank you so much! I always think they look like, well, crap, when compared to other people's nails. This is a HUGE compliment. I just use the brush, but to preserve it, I always put it back into the yellow polish.. I find it keeps the bristles together. I would be lost without my skinny brush!!
  • Zuzu - Thankies!!
  • rmcandlelight - Thank you so much!!
  • Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes - Again, a HUGE compliment! I am glad that you were able to tell what they were just by looking at them - my mission is complete!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
