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 (:

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).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
