Pop Art Camo

I have to give a quick "shout-out" to my 'BFF' Court on this one.. I think she has named a few of my posts throughout my blog-life, and I like when she gets to see my nails before I post them up - she comes up with great names. Thanks sport!

I stumbled across this photo and traced it back to this tumblr and loved the idea of it. Of course I had to give it a whirl. Now, I feel like I apologize far too often for the quality of my photos, and today will be no different. When I got home Saturday night, I knew I should take a quick photo of them before I forgot and I had to work the next morning, which means they will be ruined.. All the photos I took were blurry, but I did not notice until now.. I may have been a little discombobulated on Saturday evening. Well worth it though. Moving on..



I used Color (it took me a few times to write that without a 'u') Club Nomadic Nude, OPI Who The Shrek Are You?, Orly Liquid Vinyl, and China Glaze Rich & Famous. I also used a dotting tool that was sent to me from Born Pretty to create the 'design'.

That is all for today.. I think I have a wealth of goodies that should be showing up in the next couple of days - I look forward to being able to share them all with you!! Take care til then!

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).
