Make Some Noise + Shine of the Times

Hello everyone!

So, the title isn't anything creative, it is spelling out exactly what you're going to get within this post. I'm sorry. It has been a rough week. Yesterday I wasn't feeling so death-like, I actually felt well enough after writing my exam that it was time to paint my nails. I knew exactly what colour I wanted to paint them in.. But I didn't have any idea what to do nail-art-wise. Once I checked in with my sister for ideas (she also didn't have any for this particular colour, but gave me a rad idea for next week - awe yeah!), I decided to just bust out some luxeffects and call it a day.



So, we have got China Glaze Make Some Noise which is a stunning blood-orangey colour (at least to me..) topped off with two coats of Essie luxeffects in Shine of the Times, which is basically like SH Hidden Treasure.. Still absolutely gorgeous!

I really like these two gems together.. I am actually happy about them because they make me feel less like death and make me feel almost warm. Kind of a nice feeling for right now.

I HAVE to be feeling better by Wednesday.. I have the City & Colour concert to go to, and I refuse to be hacking up a lung in the vicinity of Dallas Green as we plan to be as close to the stage as we can be. REFUSE!

I hope everyone had a great week and that you're all in better health situations than I. This "cold" is a dozy, thankfully my whole family has been down and out with it.. I think I sort of made mine turn in to laryngitis, just a real great treat! Bleh. See you all again soon!!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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).

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!
