Rainbow Snakeskin aka Rainbow Tire Prints

I know, the title is a little strange.. But stick with me, and I will explain.

I really wanted to do something rainbow-esque the other day.. Yet my BM plate 215 was calling my name (aka the snakeskin pattern).. Then it suddenly hit me: sponge on a wealth of colours and use the pattern on top. YEX! (and I legitimately mean 'yex' - just say it in place of 'yes', believe me, it is fun!)

What I had wanted to do was have my colours all sponged on top of a yellow base, then use grey and black layered stamping action.. Though when I tried the grey on my pinky, I hated it and just went with black. Now, it is sort of distressed in some places.. And at some points in time, it still looked like a snakeskin print to me.. Then, I was like 'no, this is something else.. but what?' THEN I thought of the obscure movie 'Rubber' and my nails resembled tire impressions.. Everything made sense to me for the rest of the day after that.

I know, I'm strange. Moving on..







I used Orly Spark as the base, followed by some sponging of OPIs Ogre-the-Top Blue and Who The Shrek Are You?, then some Orly Sol Cabana, and finally China Glaze Heli-Yum. Then I used BM plate 215 with some Wet n Wild Black Creme.

 My only remaining question: what do you see? Snakeskin? Tire print? Something entirely different - sorry, could not resist.

Have a stellar Sunday pals - it is now time for me to start up my work week.. ugh.

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!
