China Glaze The Hunger Game Capitol Colours Collection

This. Post. Could. Not. Wait!

I had originally planned to post up some other new stuff I got the other day and the nails that I did with one of the newly acquired colours.. BUT! When I picked up this package today and saw it was my order from Nail Polish Canada, I knew that post was going to be put on a back burner.

Okay, first, I have to make a confession. When I did see the swatches for these gems online.. I wasn't overly thrilled. I just knew I'd be ordering them all anyways because I loved the book series so much.. I know, a sad reason to have a bunch of polish that you aren't overly excited about. In this case, however, I am really glad for my inexplicable reason to own them all. They. Are. All. BEAUTIFUL!

I did some swatching on a nail wheel to post up.. I mean, they do not do these bad boys justice, and for that I truly am sorry.

THEN! I had a moment of sheer genius. There are 12 colours.. And just over 12 days before the movie comes out.. PAPOW.. I can do a '12 Days of The Hunger Games' series. (I hope no one else out there has this going on either.. I mean, if they do, let me know! I will link you!) I was so jazzed about my idea, I bbm'ed my sister and told her. She probably thinks I am now crazy. It was either her or my bff I would have to message about this epiphany. I went the sister route as SHE READ the books (love you Gord!) - moving on!






So we have: Fast Track, Dress Me Up, Hook & Line, Mahogany Magic, Foie Gras, Agro, Harvest Moon, Riveting, Stone Cold, Smoke & Ashes, Electrify, and Luxe & Lush.

Again, I know these swatches do not do these any justice.. You'll just have to stay tuned for my '12 Days of The Hunger Games'. My plan is to post everyday using a different polish out of the 12 in some sort of nail design or as a base, you know how it works. I will sort of go from my least favourite to my favourite - though that isn't really a fair statement as I kind of have a new place in my polish loving heart for them all.. I guess it should be the from the polish I feel I will personally use the least to the one I feel I will use the most. Yah, that sounds better.. Right?

I will have that starting on Monday.. I am extremely excited. I scare myself sometimes.

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…

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).

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!
