Konad Plate m84

I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by Michelle at Nail Polish Canada - and she asked if I would be interested in reviewing a konad plate.. When I saw the photos of them, I knew immediately which plate I wanted.. m84 - the middle image was all I really saw: STARS! I love them.. And have a tremendously hard time actually paining them (oh, you'll see..)

It showed up to me late last week, and I have been thinking a lot about it ever since. I had a bunch of non dish washing shifts this week, so I knew it would be the time to bust out that beautiful plate and test it out.



Now, after my adventure with Half n Half nails, I wasn't quite ready to give them up.. So I went with half China Glaze Lemon Fizz and half China Glaze Sweet Hook. I liked them already.. Then I had to go in with my sub-par stamping 'skillz', but, believe it or not, this has netted me the most comments by people so far this year.. I also was impatient and have some dragged areas - but, the image itself is amazing. As you can see.. via my thumb.. I had an area of blank space, and instead of trying to just stamp on some stars, I freehanded.. With a dotting tool. Not so pretty, but no one really seemed to notice.

I love the idea of the stars.. I can see me adding this in to my next go with galaxy nails!

Also, when I was first glancing at the plate when it arrived, my mom pops around my shoulder and says 'can I get you to put those bows on my fingers?' - I was like 'what bows?!' - yeah! Adorable bow on the plate as well. Geez! See? I was so enthralled with the stars that I didn't even notice the other images. The bow, some really gorgeous flowers and some hot lips. Not going to lie, I lucked out!

I think it would be a really great plate to own, especially with spring right around the corner - the flower images scream spring manis with pastel colours - just saying!

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…

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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
