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!

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!
