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!!

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).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
