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!!

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).
