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!!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!!
Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you!

I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit.

Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this!

I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed.

Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time!


The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia

Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are!

This is actually …

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…

Blonde Tortoise

Hello everyone!

I am not going to do a full write-up on my absence and such, just wanted to share these gem nails. I have been painting my nails/nail art'ing it up this entire time, but a lot of stuff I have done hasn't made me inspired enough to post it.. until now!

I came across THESE NAILS on instagram by Nailthoughts and wanted to do something like that.. and I liked the results a lot. I feel like mine are a little more 'grungey', which is usually where I like to take my nail art.


I used:
Essie First Base Base Coat
OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!
Elevation Polish (label sticker is off, but the dark brown from the tortoise shell collection)
Orly Liquid Vinyl
Gold Flake
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for now - have an excellent day!
