Floral Nail Tutorial

I have to preface this post with a few apologies.. Apology 1: I did film this as a video originally, but when I reviewed it, I didn't quite get in close enough so that it could be seen what I was doing - but I was still going to post it up. Apology 2: My computer has been acting strange lately. I used to be able to leave it on for days on end, now it likes to shut off at random. Random being when I was trying to upload to youtube last night. I honestly didn't want to try and do it again - it said it would take 500 minutes.. Ugh. Apology 3: I decided to take photos as I went along working on these nails.. And while I was taking the photos, they looked AWESOME on the camera.. When I uploaded and edited them.. Ehh.. not so much..

Apology 4: I am sorry about the quality of this tutorial, but hopefully you'll be able to understand what I'm trying to show.. My next tutorial (whenever that is..) will be filmed, in focus, and should upload properly. Fingers crossed?

Anyways, the nails that I am giving you a tutorial on are the floral gems I posted up a little while back.



The polish I used are: Butter London Lady Muck, OPI Shorts Story, Joe Butter, NYC Lexington Yellow, OPI Jade Is The New Black, OPI Who The Shrek Are You?, and Orly White Out.

I hope this might be useful to someone.. AND! If you decide to do something similar, I would love to see what you have done! Feel free to link me a photo, or e-mail me one! Thanks for taking a glance - and have an awesome day!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
