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!

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…

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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
