31 Day Challenge: Day 30 Inspired by a tutorial

Day 30... YESSSSS! 1 more day! 1 more day! Seriously, I did not think this would be, um, as challenging as it actually has been. It is kind of a bittersweet point in time: it has been really great posting every day, but, I kind of hate that overwhelming, deadline-y feeling EVERY DAY! I only like that for assignments and exams.. Anyways.

One discretionary note.. This tutorial is incredibly adorable.. My take on it? I could not draw a star to save my soul tonight. I apologize. Blah!



I think one thing this whole challenge has taught me is: I need to work on my skillz. I feel like a good 25% of what I posted was not very good work. I better get my butt in gear and come up with some quality posts.. I want to end the year off on a high note!

So, for tomorrow.. Recreate your favourite challenge.. Is it what I have done? Someone else.. I have no idea! What would you all like to see me do again? I have an idea of what I would like to do again.. but please, let me know what you'd like to see! Then tomorrow, when I get home from work, that is what I will spend a solid chunk of time doing!

Til tomorrow my dear readers..

Oh wait.. I was able to snap a cute photo of Ben this evening.. He was actually not squawking at me.. He might look a little disheveled here.. I woke him up for a seed and I love when I do that and he curls up in my hand.

I think this looks great :) What kind of animal is Ben? He looks like a cute little rascal. And you got yourself a new follower :)

@Sirena - Thank you!!

@Helga - Ben is a degu.. So, he looks rat-like, but he is actually more closely related to a rabbit. He is quite smart and, yes, he is a rascal! And thanks for following, happy to have you!!

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!

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

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.
