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!!

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!

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).

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.

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…
