Iron Fist Zombie

The Iron Fist Zombie (flats!) are basically what finally inspired me to do this mani. I have to say, I love Iron Fist flats.. I think I own 3 pairs and I believe my sister has 4 or 5.. Anyways! At Christmastime, I got her the Zombie flats and now she wears them all the time.. (side note: she also has the wallet and it is amazing..) ANYWAYS! Many, many months ago, via tumblr, I came across THIS image, and of course I saved it to my inspiration folder. Fast forward to Saturday night and me scoping through my folder looking for the one major 'mani' I was going to do for the week (aka a couple of days as they will get wrecked once I am in the dishpit at work..)



I will apologize for my shiny nails. I was actually already in bed, following my night routine that I had mentioned in my last post.. So I had already slicked on some Nubar cuticle oil.. Then I remembered I would be at work in the morning.. And, as far as my experiences go, work is a 50/50 killing zone for nail art/polish. (side note: I would have been ok, I was spared working with the dishes.. Every bit of paint is still intact!)

I know there is some smearing of the black paint around the eyes, but, I really do like this. I think it is something fun and it threw a lot of people off.. My favourite part to paint were the teeth.. I have no idea as to why - they just were!!

For this, I used: OPI Green-Wich Village, CG White Out, CG Liquid Leather, OPI Shorts Story and of course my trusty brush, which is why the silly yellow nail art bottle is splayed out in front of the other guys.

Now for some just day in the life chit-chat. I decided last week that I was going to eliminate online shopping for awhile. I am not really trying to save money or anything, but I figure it would be smarter to start holding on to more money.. Cause you never know what large purchase items are going to turn up, or, if you get really sick and have to miss work, etc.. So, that plan died a horrible death on Friday night.. And has continued up to today. Ugh. Two of the places I have placed orders with can be blogged about, so that will be fun! One of them isn't going to be here til sometime mid-June, so that will be a long wait.. Another should hopefully be here this week - and it is 100% nail related! Yay! The other orders placed was for clothing.. Yeah.

Another thing I quickly wanted to mention.. The other day, the dad asked me if I still was filming YouTube video tutorials. I don't even remember the last time I filmed one. That is pretty bad. I think my problem is that I didn't have it set up to my main account - which is connected to my main e-mail, etc, and I always forget to check with that other account. I am not sure if any of you watched them (don't worry - you don't have to!) but I think I am going to start filming again and have them on my main account so I can keep updated on the comments and such. Way easier! I was hoping to film tomorrow during the day, but I have a hair appointment tomorrow (I was really good and actually waited for almost 2 months! My roots are killing me slowly on the inside.. I never wait that long!) - so I am not sure yet about tomorrow.. But! Expect a new video sometime by the end of the week. Anyways.. I should probably silence myself now.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and is having an awesome start to the new week! Take care until next time!


  • Tierney - Totally strange, but I actually thought about you with the Mermaid's Tears polish - I am not sure why it reminded me of you, but it did! I actually think if you try it out, you'll love it! I was a tad skeptical myself, but tried it and loved it! I did put Silver Shatter over the others, just to see, and none of them blew me away like it did over Mermaid's Tear!! I am glad you got the same shades though - they are all gorgeous!!
  • Minty - Well, thank you for the tag!! I was reading through yours and was like 'hell yes, I completely agree with that! I am stealing it!!' 
  • shortwidenails - I am glad you like it (: I look forward to your email!!

Canada Day - Saran Wrap Style

I had said the other day that I would be using the Saran Wrap method again soon.. And I really did mean soon. I figure it was the perfect way to celebrate Canada Day (nail-wise) without over-doing it.. I mean, I'm fairly patriotic as a rule, but sometimes sporting a Maple Leaf on my fingers isn't exactly my style.. ANYways.. See? The love is there with the red and white.. I know I said the next time I did the saran wrap method, I was going to try with three colours.. But, I think I will maybe leave that experiment for tomorrow - today is only about these two colours! So.. How I get to this? Well, allow me to show you. Start off with the colours of your choice - one as the base, and one as your.. distress-er? And some saran/cling wrap. I take two pieces and ball them up.. You could use more or less.. But I figure two hands, two, er, balls. Yikes. After your base has COMPLETELY DRIED (you can do these a couple of hours in advance, the night before, or even use some

Day 27: The Hungry Asian Cookies (and) Cream

Hey everyone! I decided that for today and tomorrow (my last day - eeek!) that I would choose two polish that mean something to me. Today I am going to be sharing Cookies & Cream made by the awesome Kae aka The Hungry Asian. When I first started blogging, I immediately started following her. She is the reason behind many of my polish purchases.. heh. She started "frakening" polish awhile back.. and I had a HUGE lemming for Cookies & Cream - but, at the time, she wasn't shipping to Canada. Then, when she started to ship to Canada, I would always miss the restock times.. Then I just sort of.. forgot about it. Then, a little while back, while stumbling through all the amazing gems on etsy.. I saw a photo.. I didn't need to see the seller or the name.. I knew. It was ordered almost immediately. And it has sat.. until now. It still makes me heart smile. And now that it is mine? Constant smiling heart! I decided to not use undies on this. It is

Terrazzo Inspired Nails

 Hey everyone! Will speed-race past a whole 'sorry I have been away' write-up and just go straight to the goods. I apologize in advance for my VERY dry cuticles (I cleaned up as much as I could in edit mode.. but, still bad) - I have been applying oil and lotions multiple times per day for.. weeks.. and.. no beneficial results, sadly. I went with terrazzo print inspired nails for this go-round. I started with a base coat, then OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI, then, using the brush for the each nail polish, I went in with: OPI Suzi Shops & Island Hops, OPI Sailing & Nail-ing, OPI Amazon...Amazoff, China Glaze Liquid Leather, China Glaze Sweet Hook, Essie Chinchilly, Color Club Je Ne Sasi Quoi, and Sally Hansen White On - then finally topped with Seche Vite. I am hoping to slowly creep back into regularly posting new content here - so, stay tuned!
