A Whale Of A Good Time

I am a HUGE fan of the nail art over at Mad Manis and have a wealth of their work saved in my inspiration folder. The other night as I was perusing through, I saw my saved photo of the Whale mani, and knew that is exactly what I had to copy!



Ok, now, I really love them.. BUT.. I kind of feel like they are more like psychotic killing whales.. They have that crazy look in their eyes! I'm also really glad that people seemed to know what they were.. They actually sort of remind me of 'Boo' from the Mario games.. Sort of.

I used China Glaze First Mate, OPI No Room For The Blues, Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink, Orly White Out, Orly Liquid Vinyl, and a dotting tool that I received from Born Pretty.

Oh, and as I write this, Ben is ringing his 'attention' bell (we call it something else, but that is kind of inappropriate, so I will save you all from having to hear what it is really called). It must mean he wants me to share a new photo of him with all of you.


Bennie, well, degus in general, have an affinity for shiny items. Apparently nail polish with some shimmer is no different. He tried to steal this and put it in his man cave. Don't worry though, I saved the polish!

Have an awesome Wednesday everyone! See you again soon..

They do look rather psychotic. In a very good way, of course!

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…

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).

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!
