Galaxy Nails

Yes, that is correct! The ever so popular 'Galaxy Nails'.. I finally decided to take a stab at doing them.. I watched some videos on youtube, viewed a wealth of photos, and finally went with the nails that were shown on this video.

Mine aren't the greatest.. I have room for a vast improvement.. BUT.. Anyone that was looking at them were like 'hey, are those space nails' and some even said 'galaxy' - so I figure that means mission accomplished!



I kept that blurry photo in there as I thought it looked neat..

What I did that bothered me the most was the 'stars' or the white dots.. I feel like I went a bit heavy on them. Ahh well, like I said, room for improvement.. I know what I want them to look like more-so for next time.

I forgot to photo what I used and have since put them all back.. But I will see what I can remember here..

The black is Orly Liquid Vinyl (sidenote: I might love that even more than CG Liquid Leather.. I got away with one coat!!!!!), then I sponged on some white (CG White Out), some yellow (Orly Spark), some pink (Essie In Stitches), then I went with a smidge of Orly Haley's Comet.. I also topped the nails with an unlabeled Color Club glitter. Huh, I think I got it all - yay!

Anyways, I am going to go back to studying and trying to decide if it is worth it to go out tonight and celebrate a friends' birthday, or wallow in my whiny-self-pitying sickness.. Tough call!

Have a great Friday night everyone!!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
