Splatter Nails

AKA a very thin line separating good and terribad.

I swear this type of nail art is almost as elusive to me as water marbling. They don't seem like they would be that difficult, then I give them a whirl and basically fail. Yet I really do like the look of both.. Some year I will get the hang of it all!!



As you can see, I messed up quite badly, especially on my middle and ring fingers. The other three, I liked. I also liked what was going on on my right hand, but I forgot to take the photos before heading out to bowling last night.. My thumb nail is ripped and torn up.. Cannot show! BUT I can tell you that there is really only one fail nail on that hand..

I based the colours I used off this photo - and the colours I used were: Orly Liquid Vinyl as the base, followed with some Zoya Pippa, OPI Ogre-the-Top Blue, and Orly White Out. Sorry, I forgot to snap a bottle shot!

I guess I am going to have to go remove this polish and head back to the drawing board for something different - awe yeah! Have a great weekend everyone (:

I think it looks great. The color combination is amazing! And I don't even think of your ring finger nail as a fail. :) Can't wait to see your next attempt!

I haven't tried this technique yet. I love your thumb and pinky!

I think they look great, I like the colours you chose! Stuff like this can take a while to get the composition just right - the first few times I tried galaxy nails I haaated them because I couldn't balance the colours correctly! Just takes practice! :)

@Kayono - Awe, thanks! I cannot wait to give it another go myself.. The messiness of it was kind of fun!!

@JQ - I would love to see you try this out - I know you would do an amazing job!! And thanks, those 2 are my faves as well.

@Kayleigh - This is true.. I have to remember to give myself some credit for a first try. And now you have mentioned Galaxy nails - I love those sosososo much!!

@April - Thankies - you're much too kind - but I will take it (:

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).
