Flaming V Dots

I am going to be honest with you all.. I had no idea what to call my post.. It could possibly make sense as you read through this, actually, it most likely will not. I am working with very little sleep after an amazing weekend!!

This was my first FULL weekend off in quite awhile.. The odd time I take a Saturday or Sunday off, but I RARELY get both days off.. I have been working as the admin assistant lately, so not only do I get a cake walk through the day (compared to, say, serving or doing dishes) but I also get weekends to myself. Bliss. I really need to get going with school so everyday of my future career will feel like a holiday.. Anyways.. Totally off track!

I honestly have not been very creative lately.. And all I do is copy other designs. Maybe I am just lazy. I have no idea..

The other night I grabbed Joe Butter to use.. It is a pale creamy yellow and I love it. I just had no idea what to do with it. I came back to my polish collection to grab something to add and spotted my sponge. Oh, of course.

I used: Joe Butter, Finger Paints Model Colour & CG Breakin'. They reminded me of fire.. And.. I am once again (forever?) on the fence about what I have done here. I didn't hate them, didn't love them. Meh?

Now I am sporting these bad boys..







They are based off of this IMAGE and.. I really, really, REALLY.. dislike them. BUT! Everyone freakin' loves them!! I am tempted to try and chip them just so I can do something different.. I might just have to. Bleh.

I used: OPI Need Sunglasses?, OPI Who The Shrek Are You?, CG Liquid Leather, CG White Out. I also used a dotting tool (provided by Born Pretty) and my trusty paint brush (in the yellow bottle).

I really want to wear Essie Little Brown Dress. Time to look for inspiration.

I need to get some sleep tonight. The next few days are going to be crazy. My mother is going in for total knee replacement surgery tomorrow.. Days will be filled with work and then hospital visits. I am going to be one tired magoo! Weird that for once in my life I am actually praying for it to be the weekend already!!

Hope everyone is off to a great start to their week (:



  • shortwidenails - Maybe I will on my next post.. I just have to remember to snap some photos! I also really like seeing items that people receive/buy, but I also don't want to come off as a jerkface! Usually I hate everything that my birthday represents - I was pretty pleased with it all!! Oh, and I use the foil method.. Yeah, it uses 10 cotton balls, but I use that regardless when removing glitter polish.. It works like a charm!!
  • Swaafie - Thank you so much - I had an amazing day!!

It's funny how the mani you hate the most seems to get the most love. It's nuts, but I like it :-P

Oh yeah I love that 2nd mani. I'm one of those guys. :P Hey if you want to change them then go ahead! I sometimes change mine daily even when I liked the last one cause I've got a craving for some colour or and idea for something else. Glad you had a good weekend!

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…

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).

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!
