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!

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.
