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!!

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).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
