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!

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
