Zombie Zest Shattered

Hello everyone!

Sorrrrrry x a whole bunch! I have not been a very good blogger lately. I actually just have not been good at doing my nails lately. Everything I seem to even attempt is a pretty serious fail - so much so that I don't even want to scale down the images and post them. (They are really THAT bad!)

I had worn CG Zombie Zest with OPI Black Shatter for the Skrillex show on Tuesday evening.. And it actually held out until today.. Then, once I returned home from work I realized I had pulled a 'derp' move and never took a photo.

You get to see some tip wear and some chipped polish due to me doing dishes at work and my forever hate relationship with wearing gloves while doing the dishes. (seriously, it makes my hands much, much worse!)


The only reason I am sharing this is because I actually think it is a great combo! Halloween-ish, while not going over the top. A "safe bet", if you will.

AND! One more day to enter my little giveaway.. I cannot believe the response to it - you're all awesome for entering AND for actually reading what I wrote and telling me what you like (or don't like) about my personal favourite month: October. I cannot wait to find out who the winner is!!

Annnd I should also be painting my nails tomorrow as well. I'm hoping that I will actually do a good job.. Unlike the fail job I did with my Freddy Kruger nails - yikes!

Have a great evening everyone!

EDIT: I ended up buying an extra set of Revlon polishes as a bonus due to the volume of people entering the giveaway. I got the 2 winners via random.org on Friday (ok, Saturday at 12:05am) and e-mailed them. No response from either winner.. SO.. I have used random.org again to select two people - I am e-mailing them right now.. Hopefully I will hear back from these two so I can send off these gems!

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).
