Lauren Conrad Cheetah/Leopard Mani

Hello everyone!

I saved this photo to my inspiration folder a long, long time ago. As far as I remember, it was posted on a nail board somewhere and supposedly it was a twitpic via Lauren Conrad.. I'm not sure, but you can see it here.






For it, I used: SH Choco-Latte, CG: White Out & Liquid Leather. I also used a dotting tool that was provided to me from Born Pretty.

I was actually going to do something different as I painted my nails Saturday night and was working the Mother's Day brunch the next day.. I was thinking pastels and flowers.. And thinking of polishes that I use all the time.. Then I snapped out of it, grabbed a polish from my untried stash and went with that image. And.. I like it.

Although, now that I am slowly running out of time before I am going out.. I really want to paint my nails.. I wonder if I can pull something off.. We shall see!

Also, I was asked to post swatches from the Too Faced Naked Palette.. I have never done this before.. So, I hope I did it correctly. Here goes..



All of the shades I just wiped my fingertip in and did a quick smear across my arm.. I think this photo showed off some of the sheen the best, but, of course, they are much more gorgeous in person!

I hope everyone is off a great start in their week!! I should hopefully have another post before the end of the week..

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!

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.

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.
