12 Days of The Hunger Games: Day 2

Pop quiz time my doves..


You have to be me, and if you've been following me for awhile, you should get this.. I see this colour on my nails and I need to DO something with it.. What do I do?

I think I can hear some of you shouting the correct answer..


Oh yeah, I snakeskin it.. Of course!

I used China Glaze Agro as the base, followed with some stamping (BM plate 215) of WnW Black Creme and Orly Glitz.. I'm not going to lie.. I love this.. And I think it will be something I sport.. A lot!

Day 1 tomorrow.. And the official opening day of the movie.. For those keeping track.. What polish will it be tomorrow??

EDIT: I just wanted to mark this day as a bit of a downer. I'm out of town at the moment.. And received a phone call around noon today from the mother.. My sweet little baby rabbit (Lakai), was put down this afternoon. I still call her a baby, yet she, along with her remaining siblings, just turned 8 years old. In a way I'm glad I wasn't home at this time.. I'd be a mess just taking her in. Though at the same time I'm happy.. She was suffering. I just wanted to thank all of you again that left kind comments the other day.. Losing a pet at any point in time is awful.. This one especially stings as she was born in our house and we have been around her since day 1. Ugh. Must. Stop. Writing. Tears. Forming.

I am so so sorry about Lakai. I had to put my bunny Harvey to sleep last year, on Easter Monday. I know exactly how you are feeling.

@Inka - A solid choice!! I want to see them!!

@Michelle - Ugh, on Easter Monday?! That is rough!! Glad to know that you understand the gutted out kind of feeling. Not fun!

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).

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…
