Nice Set of Hooters...

...I meant the owls!

My sister said this about my nails when we were out last night.. and I died. One, because it is a hilarious quote and two, because I love Dumb & Dumber..

A few days ago, while cruising around pinterest, these adorable owl nails were pinned.. I knew I had to do them as I have friends who love owls and they are still quite 'trendy' - but I figured I could recreate them and have people still know what they are! All bonuses.

Chalkboard Nails was the blog that they were linked to. While reading the post, I found out that she found them at Cingy Blogs Nails also via pinterest..

I really wanted to use reinforcements to make the 'horns' look more even.. But I think I might have tossed them out the other day with a wealth of papers I sent to the recycling bin.. Ugh. So, freehand it was!



**Must apologize about my horribly dry hands. Nothing is working for me this winter, and this is actually a fairly nice winter thus far. My hands are destroyed and I lather on lotion 5+ times a day, plus my medication for eczema and I'm still left with gross hands. LE SIGH!**

I apologize about the thumb.. I actually sort of gouged my index fingernail on my other hand, and I was able to salvage him on that finger, but the remnants had to stay on the thumb.. Only part I don't like about this mani!

I used Orly Spark and Orly Liquid Vinyl for the eyes, Orly Sol Cabana for the beaks, OPI Over The Taupe on the thumb, Color Club Rad Nomad on the index finger, OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue on middle, OPI Mermaid's Tears on ring, and OPI Sparrow Me The Drama on the pinky. I also mixed OPI Alpine Snow with all the colours used to make their belly area and then just dots with the base colour.

I think I have 3 people that want me to re-create this on them so far, and I am actually happy about it! These nails are adorable and I'd be more than happy to share that adorable-ness with others!

I hope everyone is having a great day - and will have a fantastic weekend!!

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.
