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!!

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).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
