Framed Cheetah

I was really jazzed to try out the whole 'outlined' nails trend that I have been seeing in photos.. Now, I do really like it, but I think next time I would paint the nails in the outline colour first THEN do the middle colour.. Maybe it will be easier? Probably not, but I can pretend.

ANYWAYS! I have this bin in my room that houses all my books to read.. It is white with rainbow cheetah print and lime green edges (a photo of it would be smart..)

I knew that is exactly how I would do my outlined nails. My best friend said it like my nails have "frames", and I loved that.. Which is how the name 'Framed Cheetah' was born. Yup, trivia in the making right there!

For this, I used: Orly White Out, China Glaze Entourage, OPI No Room For The Blues, China Glaze Rich & Famous, Orly Spark, OPI Sparrow Me The Drama, and Orly Liquid Vinyl.

I am hoping to be able to post up something again by the end of the week.. I have a final exam on Friday and then leaving for a quick overnight trip to Edmonton on the Saturday.. I am already boarding the excuse-train.. I am seriously hoping to have a post made up for you all though! Ooh and this is my first actual nail art of the new year.. Yay?!

I hope everyone had an excellent weekend (I sure did!) and that you will all have a phenomenal week. It is about to get seriously cold here. I'm not impressed.

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
