31 Day Challenge: Day 26 Inspired by a pattern

I knew what pattern I would be choosing before I even knew I had to be inspired by one: snakeskin. I have no idea why, but I am obsessed with it! I don't think I would ever own a snakeskin top or pants, but maybe booties or a clutch.. maybe.. Tough to say! But I love it on my nails.

I didn't do sponging this time like I did the last two times I have done it.. I think I like it better with the sponging - it adds more depth.




Before I say anything more.. I have to mention that the polish I wanted to show up for this day totally did! Color Club Snakeskin.. REALLY?! Why did I not own this polish already!? DY-ING! I love it and it was perfect for this particular day. I highly doubt I will ever do a snakeskin mani without using Snakeskin - just sayin'!

I started with a base of OPI Skull and Glossbones, then I stamped Essie Mink Muffs first followed by Color Club Snakeskin using BM plate 215.

I also wanted to show off my new children: Essie Cocktail Bling, Color Club Snakeskin, Orly Oui and Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air.

Little upset about Glitter in the Air.. I tried to apply it quickly yesterday (quickly meaning I had an hour to allow my polish to sit..) and after that hour, I was doing my hair and my nails were not dried! WTF?! With my trusty seche vite and all. Grrr!!

Welp, see you all tomorrow!!

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
