Halloween Round-Up of 2011

This post is just going to be a smorg of nails photos and Halloween yard decor..

The love Halloween. In fact, it is my favourite day of the whole entire year. I think it is more so that I love the fact that all things "scary" are celebrated. LOVE. It! I usually do not actually go out and celebrate bar style; my thing is decorating.. We didn't get everything working this year, but I plan to start working on decorations as soon as the weather is nice (aka July) and make sure I get everything that I want to work, well, to work!

I will toss up the nails pics first.. These are from the last few weeks. I apologize for my awful photos and sometimes my nails are badly chipped - I will get better soon - I promise!







Now the decorations..










Also - I had to select two new winners for my giveaway.. I received e-mails back within 12 hours.. Needless to say, I was ecstatic!

The winners are: Alex & Anh. I am shipping those packages out tomorrow!! Then I cannot wait to receive word that their goodies arrived safely.

And that is it.. for now. I really want to start that 31 day challenge. I would like to start tomorrow.. but we shall see! My weeks have been filled with a wealth of activities, work and school. I still need to find some time for more exams. Bleh. BUT, do look forward to that 31 day challenge.. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

I hope everyone had an amazing October and a fantastic Halloween.. Bring on the other 364 days, I'm content now (:

@lucyclark - Thankies love!

@beauxs mom - YES! Yayyy! I am glad someone (other than my family) knows who IT is. He scares me.. I wanted a different image of him for the pumpkin, but I had to go with what was available. I might have to sketch out my own next year (: He is terrifying though..

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).
