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.

I hope everything goes as smoothly as possible for you!

Great mani. I love every aspect of it, I'm going to have to try out my own version of this soon. (I'll link back to 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!

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.

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.
