Squares

I stumbled across an image on this tumblr (it was on page 2 during my search) and I instantly saved the image and could not get it out of my mind.. Then I remembered I had some new Butter London (seriously, I feel like they should just create the polish line at my place.. so I can test them all out first.. That is how much I love them!) polish that I had my eyes on to use!!



I used Butter London Cheeky Chops (yellow) and Slapper.. I have said this before, and I will say it again right now.. I freaking love Butter London nail polish. I know it is a bit on the pricey side, but seriously.. So worth it! The only one that I have that I am not in love with is 'No More Waity, Katie'. If you're thinking about getting one or five - please do yourself a favour and get it/them, you will love this brand. Ok, I will stop my fangirling there!

You might have noticed that I clipped down my nails. They were all doing fine, no breaks or chips on EITHER hand, but I had a moment of, well, whatever, grabbed the clippers and nipped them down. There is just something about short nails that I love!

I also got to do something fun on Friday evening before date night with my 'bff' - I got to do 3 sets of nails at a little get-together/going away party. So, 'S', if you're reading this - I hope you and your friends enjoyed your nails and that they survived through the weekend! I had fun doing the nails - and it was kind of crazy. I'm used to doing one set of nails.. But three? Insanity, but a good time none the less.

Ooh, and I had mentioned some untried Butter London polish.. Well, two of them are now tried, but anyways..


This is Lady Muck, Cheeky Chops, The Black Knight (I always want to write 'The Dark Knight' - curse you Batman!) and Slapper. I also recently "acquired" Branwen's Feather, but that will be coming up in a different post at a different time - how ominous!

I hope everyone is having a terrific Tuesday - it is time for me to go and hit the books some more. Exam tomorrow. Yikes!

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).

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.

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…
