New Years Eve Nails

First and foremost, Happy New Year to everyone!!

I was really excited because my best friend was coming back home from Toronto and we were spending New Years Eve together. It was also exciting because, for the first time in many, many years, I had the next day off, which meant I could actually go out and have a fun time!

And it was fun. Cute bartender.. Cat-calling in the parking lot, I wore heels! And survived..

Oh, and I did my nails.

I feel this is the classic 'NYE' type of mani aka glitter.


I used Orly Liquid Vinyl, then I sponged on some OPI Crown Me Already and then a smidge more sponging with China Glaze Snow Globe. I then decided to get a bit friskier and completely rhinestone up my ring fingers.. AND.. I'm not going to lie: I love it! Surprisingly enough, I have only lost two gems since doing them.. One off of each finger and I think (for the most part) I'm the only person that can tell. Yay!

I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve, whether it was spent in or by going out - I expect great things out of 2012!

I also want to say a little thank you to 2011. It got me to reach 350 of you! 350?! WHAT?! That is crazy! I have said before, I was so excited when I had 1 follower.. It meant someone out there was actually 'following' my blog.. Whether they were actually looking at my posts or not was a different story, but one person either felt my blog was awesome or sorry enough for me to follow. I loved it! Then when that hit 10, I was ecstatic! I get more and more excited with each new follower! I told my best friend last night that once I hit 400, I will .com this all up. It might take a whole year to get up to 400, but I'm determined. And I still love and adore each and every one of you, like you were my number 1!

That's fantastic, I love it too! I wouldn't have gone for the rhinestones, but it looks great on you!

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!
