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!!

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!
