31 Day Challenge: Day 1 Red

I am sure many of you have seen this done or are watching it being done on other blogs, etc, and now it is my turn to hop aboard the bandwagon and also partake in the challenge.


Of course I am picking a month which will be extremely busy, but ohhh well, if not now, then never - or something along those lines.

I am going to try to get a bit ahead of the game and do a bunch of nail painting tonight so I can start posting them on a set schedule everyday.. Especially since I am gone for a few days next week.. That isn't cheating.. right?!

There are some others also starting the challenge today.. So you'll have a wealth of challenge-doers to check out - I will always list those that I know about at the end of my posts so you can also check them out (if you're not doing so already!)

So, day one.. Red.. Done!



I snagged a red from my untried drawer.. It happens to be Butter London Knees Up... annnnnd.. I kind of.. uhhh.. don't like it? It has a metallic-y type of finish.. And I am just not the biggest of fans. BUT, I also didn't DO anything with it.. So maybe if I were to nail art it up I would like it a lot better? Who knows! I will find out sometime though.

The following blogs are also doing the 31 day challenge right meow - you should check them out!! Zara, Life and Polish, Manicure Addict, Polish Pauper, Bright Lights, Big Color & ManiCured!

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…

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).

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!
