31 Day Challenge: Day 31 Re-create your favourite challenge

Ohhhh no, no, no, NO! Did you think I would give myself the satisfaction of re-creating MY favourite challenge? Nope, not at all. I went back and looked at all my failboat attempts and decided to try to DO better. Did I do better this time? Sort of. I had more fun.. There was a smidge of deception here and there, but mostly fun.




Just tossing this out there.. I liked it better with the tape on.. I thought the tape looked the best. So, this compared to my other attempt - better, right? Please? It is far from perfect.. Butttt.. I kind of like it.. Ok, seriously, the idea is amazing, I just cannot for the life of me execute it correctly. And my index nail was out for murder.. The first time I went to dip it in to the polish/water, nothing stuck to it.. The second time it did, but for some reason the bottom right corner looks like it was eaten away by acid.. No idea what went on there.

Anyways.. friends, the 31 day challenge comes to an end now.. It was exhausting, but I loved it.

Now we can get back to normal. I want to start filming tutorials again soon.. I want to start posting AT LEAST once a week.. I need to start backlogging posts or something. Thanks for sticking with me through these 31 days. I look forward to the rest of this year with all of you (:

EDIT: What a jerk.. almost forgot this two days in a row!!

This looks pretty! way better than the first try! I love the bright colors!

I tried it once and it took forever to dry after taking my fingers out of the water.. does this usually happen? I mean.. do I have to wait for an hour or so for it to dry to apply the topcoat?

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.
