Rainbow Polka Dots Nails Inspired By Kayla

A while back, the genius Kayla, blogged about her amazing rainbow polka dots manicure. I knew, as soon as I saw it, that I HAD to copy it.. It was stunning! Then, last week, she posted up a tutorial. I already knew how I was going to go about doing it.. But having a tutorial always helps (:

And, I'm not going to lie.. I absolutely love how it turned out! - And side note: It took a smidge less than 25 minutes from start to finish. Love that!


I used: CG White Out, CG Rich & Famous, Orly Sol Cabana, Orly Spark, Color Club Twiggie, OPI No Room For The Blues & CG Spontaneous.

I also used a dotting tool, which was sent to me from Born Pretty.

I figured I would finally blog for a few.. Especially since I want to be around the computer right now. My sister and I ordered some feather hair extensions that are less than impressive.. I am currently in contact with the seller trying to remedy the situation. It has kept me from looking through my F21 order that came in today. Le sigh.

OH! I also bought a polish (the other day..) that I have kind of wanted for awhile now.. And once my friend told me that Essie polish was on sale at Shopper's.. Well, I jumped at the chance to own Essie Turquoise & Caicos.

The evening I bought it, I knew I had to wear it immediately. BUT.. I don't do so well with just polish.. And it was late and I had to work in the morning.. Ohh right. White Cap. LOVE this combo!



I actually loved this enough to use this combo for my toes. I think it looks fantastic together.

Now I think I am going to go try the newspaper mani that my best pal was talking about AND sporting last night! My rainbow dots are too chipped to get another day of wear :(

I hope everyone is having a great night!!




  • Claire - Thankies!! (:
  • Irishenchantment - Thanks doll! They worked well together!
  • ABOP - I agree!!

The rainbow dots remind me of these candies I ate when I was little --the ones where its a sheet of candy dots and had to peel off the candy

I love the 2nd mani, I totally want White Cap !!

It looks great!
I'm glad to see that you can use colours besides the ones I used and still achieve an amazing result. I'm happy to have inspired you. :)

GREAT job on your dots...I have not gotten around to trying it since Kayla posted it...and me thinking I can do this one myself - real nail art - imagine that! And as for adding White Cap...well it's on my wish list STILL - seeing it overlayed here has me rushing to get it moved off the wish list to the on the way list now!!!

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…

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).

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!
