Happy (Belated) Birthday..

..to me!!

I have to say, this has probably been one of my personal favourite birthdays.. I finally feel like I am getting to a better place in my life. I am not sure why (ok, there are a few factors as to why I think I feel this way).. But this isn't really a personal blog.. So I won't bore you all with details!

For my birthday nails.. I went super simple.. Which was incredibly hard for me to do.

Now I am in a bit of a bind. I need to do my nails this evening, but absolutely nothing is inspiring me. It is a really terrifying feeling. I have looked through every image in my possession, every magazine clipping I have clipped.. I even looked at wallpaper pattern swatches online. Nothing. Ugh.

Anyways, here is what I was sporting.. And still currently am..





It is WnW Party of Five Glitters over top of CG Liquid Leather.

I am actually shocked how many compliments one can receive from just applying a glitter polish over black. It is insanity! And also extremely easy.. Maybe I should just do it more often.. I say it, and know I am lying!

I was going to photograph all of my amazing gifts, but I wasn't sure if that would be appropriate.. Plus I didn't want to brag.. I will just say that my friends and family are extremely generous and I seriously feel like the luckiest person on the planet. So, any of you reading this, I love you and thank you dearly! I love everything!

Now to figure out how to do my nails.. Le sigh!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic week!! My week is on some freakishly high high.. I am hoping it won't be followed by a crash!!


  • ABOP - Thankies.. I really appreciate that!!
  • Minty - Thank you lovely!!
  • Kayla - Well, I think I really wanted a fantastic copy.. And ended up with that! I had high hopes.. And I am happy to give the shout out - your work is amazing!!

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).
