Sort Of Valentine's Day Nails

I say 'sort of' as I feel these could just be worn whenever.. OR, if I wanted them to be really V-Day-ready, I could add some red, or some hearts, and then it would be fitting. I do apologize in advance.. I went off to work and forgot to take a photo in the morning.. So my hands and that are peel-y, and my nails don't look as nice..



What these started as were splatter nails.. I thought splatter V-Day-esque nails would be rad.. But I could not get the splatter action to work. I had some blobs of polish on my nails.. So instead of start over again, I quickly grabbed my nail are brush and went to work making random strokes with the brush here and there. And my verdict? Kind of awesome.. In fact, I really do like these bad boys. I know, the photo might not do them justice as they were beaten up at work, but trust me: they did look great at one point in time.

I used OPIs: Mod About You, Kiss Me On My Tulips (still hilarious), Sparrow Me The Drama, as well as some Orly White Out.

Well, that is as close to Valentine's Day nails as I am going to do.. Though there has been some amazing stuff out there! I hope you all have a great day and I will see you again soon!!

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.

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
