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 image with this look somewhere in my inspiration folder. Anyways..


I useddddd OPI A Grape Fit and CG Liquid Leather. And see? My cuticles and that weren't too bad.. You know what.. Because I like to run this here blog on honesty.. And want all of you to see when I make mistakes as well.. I will show you how scary my nails are. Both. Hands.

Remember, you were warned.

You can still close the page..

No? Well, ok.. Here are my scary hands as of right now.. (I seriously snapped the photos 10mins ago..)







Yikes! I really do apologize.. And I hope I don't lose a ton of followers for posting these ugly photos! Le sigh.

In other news.. I returned home today.. And there is a little package waiting for moi. I believe it is nail gems.. So I will play with those some time.. AND! My best friend has given me 3 awesome nail art ideas lately. She BBMs me them.. And I quite like them! I am hoping that by next week I will actually have the energy to start doing some fun designs again. Seriously, this cold will be the death of me.

I should probably sneak off to bed asap here. I have work.. I have no idea how I am going to pull that off.. A bit of shopping AND a movie to attend tomorrow. I am going to med up and pass out! Have a fantastic night everyone - and a terrific weekend (:



  • shortwidenails - They actually look like they took a lot of time and patience, when really, they didn't! I had all the colours on a piece of paper and just went around, dabbed some polish on to my sponge and immediately on to my nails. If I thought a colour was too heavy or there wasn't enough of another, I just got more of the polish and dabbed it on! I think I am going to do these again some time soon - maybe with some different colours (:
  • Halifax - I know hey? Maybe one day we'll get some equality with the polish companies OR some amazing online shop will open that is Canadian and won't charge double for the polish alone. Ahh dreams - so nice, aren't they?
  • Chantal - It is one of the worst feelings.. I agree with you there!!

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.
