One Less Lonely Glitter Shattered + Nautical Nails

I know I should really hold on to one of these 'posts' so I can spread them out a bit.. But if I do that, I will forget to post them and they will be lost in a sea of other photos. So, you all get two different looks in one post.

I am going to start with One Less Lonely Glitter, which is in the Nicole by OPI Bieber collection. My sister, her bff and I were out shopping last weekend.. And we stumbled over the Bieber collection.. I wasn't overly excited by any of the polishes (don't get me wrong, they are lovely.. but.. I feel like I have a lot of the shades in my collection already..) Then I stumbled upon OLLG and fell in love. But I didn't pick it up that day.. I just kept thinking about it. I ended up back there a couple of days later and snagged a bottle of it!





Now, you all know by now that I am not just a swatch kind of person.. Nor am I one to really just wear a polish and be happy. There has to be something else to it.. Although I did love this all on its own. What to do.. Oh right. OPI Black Shatter.
I wore this for 4 days.. And had some minor chipping going on (see the thumb..) but I really did enjoy this combo.

Then, I decided to listen to the ideas of my favourite friend and try nautical nails. Now, when I think of nautical nails, I think of this POST and how amazing her nails look.

I tried my best..
Of course it doesn't look as amazing as hers.. But.. I still kind of like them! The only thing I would change is the gems that I used. I think if I used smaller gems, I wouldn't have picked them off so quickly and ruined everything. I did get quite a few compliments on them though. Maybe I will try again some day.


I used: CG White Out, Essie Lollipop and Revlon Royal. Also used is my trusty little brush and some gems I received from Born Pretty.

Well, that is all for now! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend and has a good start to their week!!

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..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
