Bridget Jones's Diary Inspired Nails

Actually, it was the second film, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason. I was watching this movie the other night and passed out with about 40ish minutes left. Of course I could not leave it unfinished.. So I watched from about that point onwards the next afternoon.

In one of the scenes (where Bridget finds out she will be working with Daniel on his TV show...) she is wearing a light blue blouse with either black or brown dots and some peachy-pink dots. I instantly knew I wanted to paint that on my nails.



I was rather annoyed that during the painting process - well, just before I was getting ready to apply top coat.. That there was some cotton fluff attached to a dot on my index finger. Of course I grabbed it and of course it would drag across the brown and ruin my night. Ohhh well!!

I still really loved how this turned out! I also really liked all the colours together!!

I used: OPI What's With The Cattitude?, Essie Little Brown Dress, Color Club Pardon My French (I think) and a dotting tool which was provided by Born Pretty.

I should really make little labels for my Color Club polishes.. They came in a set and are not labeled on the bottle. Kind of annoying as I also have to look back to see what they are called!!

Well, I am off to go paint my nails with the franken polish I made for the contest over at More Nail Polish - if you haven't seen it, go check it out! You have until June 2nd to enter.. Plus, as this is technically my third (I basically made the same colour on my first and second tries.. Anyways..) - it was nice to have a reason to do some frankening!

I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday.. I have been cleaning. all. day!


  • Enigma - Yay! I am glad I am not the only one (:

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…

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

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).
