Hearts

So, I stumbled upon a new (to me!) blog the other day.. And fell in love with pretty much all over her designs. Many photos have been stuffed in to my inspirational folder..

It is http://rebeccalikesnails.blogspot.com/ and she is amazing. I kind of feel weird talking about someone like this whom I have never met/spoken with/anything.. But still! I need to put down her blog url for some more recognition.. And maybe some of you haven't come across her as well. AND if you have and never mentioned her to me.. Well, you're mean (:

Anyways!

I came across this adorable heart design she did. Of course I had to give it a whirl. Now, I have to apologize in advance. I have been slathering my hands in lotion every few hours, applying cuticle creams, etc, and I still picked at my skin really badly the other day. So.. Uh, they look gross. Sorry x 10!!


I used: OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Shorts Story, CG Lemon Fizz, CG Peachy Keen, CG Electric Pineapple & CC Take Me To Your Chateau. I also used a dotting tool which I received from Born Pretty

I also forgot to post up these shots the other day.. Two of my favourite friends gifted me with some nail polish for my birthday.. And I love them dearly for that!!



The Fun Dip polish actually does smell awesome.. Well, at least the yellow gem does. I have this weird obsession/affinity for yellow polish.. Yet I don't really own too many yellows.. ANYways.. Then we have Finger Paints polishes in Art Dearler Teal-er & Model Colour. Both are awesome!!

Whelp, that is all for now kiddos.. I am off to Edmonton in the a.m and I am extremely excited about it! It gives me a break from S'toon.. And just everyday stresses.. Which is really, really nice!

I have a large lump sum of cash to spend. I plan on a new summer-ish wardrobe (I am looking at you F21), some new makeup (*cough*illamasqua polishes*cough*) and I really new a new purse. I need all of these things.. Plus maybe a bit more!? Who knows!!

Take care til next week everyone!!

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).

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
