31 Day Challenge: Day 24 Inspired by a book

Any guesses?



Ok, maybe these will mean nothing to all of you.. BUT.. The book I decided to go with is 'The Hunger Games' by Suzanne Collins.

I actually found an image online of someone that had done them online! The photo I have is a thumbnail, it is excruciatingly tiny - and it is watermarked, but I cannot read it for the life of me - if anyone knows who I am talking about, lemme know!!

I didn't take a photo of what I used as it is a whole wealth of polish, but, I will tell you: Orly Sol Cabana (orange), Orly Spark (yellow), Orly Mirror Mirror (grey), Orly Glam Rock (gold), Orly Glitz (gold), Orly Liquid Vinyl (black), China Glaze Midnight Kiss (gold) and Essie Silken Cord (red). Zoiks!

My favourite nail was the bird, then it looked le suckage and I kind of fell for my fire nail.. Such a great series of books! If you haven't read them, DO SO! They are amazing! And the movie comes out late March - you have plenty of time to read all three.. I think it took a week from book one to book three.. And that was not getting to read them as often as I would have liked aka all I wanted to do was read them!!

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!
