31 Day Challenge: Day 18 Half Moons

What I planned to do for today, in theory (aka in my mind), seemed amazing; I still think it would look amazing if I spent more time doing it and, well, if I used a different method.

I bring to you the Half Moon challenge nails.. I would have to say that so far, I am most disappointed with these nails..



Yeah, gross. Ugggh.

I used some China Glaze Liquid Leather and my newly acquired OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It.

To make up for my lackluster skillz here, enjoy a photo of my new children..


Chatters must have been having some sort of deal when I bought these.. I brought the bag excitedly to my sister and was like 'guess what I bought?!' and she immediately guessed the Muppet collection polish.. But, the first thing I pull out of the bag was a top coat. My face dropped. Second bottle, base coat.. WTF?! I don't buy OPI top/base coat.. Then I checked and it really was my bag.. Oh right, I am saying they must have been having some sort of deal where you get the top and base coats.. Moving on..

We have: Divine Swine, Gresh Frog of Bel-Air, Gettin' Miss Piggy With It, & Rainbow Connection.

Cannot wait for tomorrow.. GALAXY nails!! Eee!

Now to waste a few more hours until it is movie time. Yes, I'm a Twi-Hard! Have a great Friday everyone!!

I'm not crazy about half moons as a rule, but this is a pretty good attempt imo. :)

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!

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

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.
