Dotting Tool Adventure

Hello all!

So.. I had an idea in my head of the nails I wanted to sport to my best friend's birthday shindig this weekend.. But it just wasn't happening (I'm not saying what I was TRYING to do, as I still have going to do them.. I just have to try practicing a bit!) though in my trial and error period, I was ruining the white base I had already done..

I happened to have one of my trusty dotting tools close at hand.. I dotted on some of each colour, flipped the tool to the more pointed side, and dragged through the dots.. But I didn't do it nice and marble-like, I wanted to see the scrape marks.. So this almost-fail-yet-last-minute-save mani was born..


I used Orly White Out & Au Champagne as my base.. Then we have some swirled action of Sinful Colors Unicorn (yellow), Spoiled Cotton Mouth, and Essie A Crewed Interest. Simple and effective.. Right?

I hope everyone is having a great Monday - mine was pretty rough, I'll be happy to put myself to bed and end this day - though I will say..

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GORDO!! I love youuu!!

See you all again soon (:

Ooh, yeah. My manicurist told me to do this but I'll need a dotting tool first. Thank you for sharing.

@jaljen: I get good vibes from your manicurist! You could even use a thumbtack - just something with a point and you'd be good to go!

PassionForPolish: Thannnnk you very much!

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.
