31 Day Challenge: Day 23 Inspired by a movie

Ugh. So many movies to choose from.. THEN once I decided on a movie.. I failed my way through a few nail ideas.. Then I was like 'oh, derp!' and did something simple.. Or so I thought it would be. Except that I screwed up the placement of two items.. BUT.. I think that is ok. PLUS I was running out of time and needed to get these bad boys done so I could go study.



Yeah. I went with Home Alone. I have a very special place in my heart for the movie (ok, and the second film!!) Plus I kind of love Macaulay Culkin.. And the character Buzz McCallister. I first went with a bunch of little elements that make up the movie.. But I kept messing something up and restarting.. That was getting to be a large mess. I finally decided to go with the house that is on the cover. I placed the chimney on the wrong side and technically the blue should be darker.. But ahh well, I tried! I do believe The Daily Nail did Home Alone nails at one point in time?

I used Essie Mesmerize as the base, the some Essie Silken Cord and Orly Spark to finish it up. Again, could have been better.. I spose I should try a bit harder. If I didn't have exams and assignments looming over my head, maybe things would be better.. AND I know I shouldn't use excuses as everyone has something going on in their lives at any given time. Merp! I'll do better.. I'll try!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
