Oranganade Franken

So, I took advantage of a contest to create a franken polish! Yay!

I told myself as soon as she posts up the photos for the contest, I will post up my entry on my blog and what I did with it.. Without further ado.. I present..

Oranganade...


It photographed somewhat 'blah', but there was actually quite a bit of shimmer to this gem..



Here is how it all started.. I used 1/2 bottle of Ulta Sun-Sational, 3/4 mini bottle of some random red OPI mini, 1/6 bottle of Color Club Turn The Other Chic, couple drops of China Glaze White Cap and ditto for China Glaze White Out...

The bottle shot sort of shows more of the sparkly goodness.. But, you all know I cannot just wear a polish..


I had to jazz it up some.. I give you.. SPARKLING Oranganade.. Yeah.. I actually think I would have gotten the results out of the franken that I wanted if I would have put Hidden Treasure in to the mix. Ahh well, live and learn!!

To make it 'Sparkling Oranganade', I used: Oranganade Franken, SH Hidden Treasure & CG White Out, as well as a dotting tool (which was provided to me by Born Pretty) and my newly acquired fimo canes (the lemons, to be exact).

I figured it would be a cartoony effect of soda pop.. With some lemons tossed in.. Yay? Nay?

Remember to head over to More Nail Polish and vote! Even if it isn't for me - there are some really amazing entries that you should all scope out!!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I better scuttle off to bed before work.. Bleh! Goodnight!!

AH! I'm obsessed with this manicure! Not only is the franken gorgeous, but the nail art you did to go with it makes it even better!

Really pretty shade of orange! I just did an orange franken too today (inspired by the contest you took part in), with some holo.

I was much lazier than you and just added one color + holo. Yours looks so much more fresh I like it! Mine is more like a-late-summer-orange whereas yours bring the lemon slices alive :D

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…

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).
