Lights, Camera? Pirouette My Whistle!

Lights, yes, Camera? Nah.. Well, I took the photos with a camera.. Technically? And Pirouette My Whistle.. Yeah. I honestly am the most loser-y person I know most days.. Moving on..

I picked Essie Lights the other day and was EXTREMELY excited about it.. It just looked so jazzed up and amazing in the bottle.. And I'm on a strange kick/fascination with all things neon lately.. It lived up to my expectations.

During that same shopping trip, I grabbed a couple of polish from the OPI Ballet collection.. Even though I wasn't too thrilled by the whole collection, seeing these two gems in person made me really, really want them! One of the pair that I nabbed is Piroutte My Whistle.

I had been playing with some nail wheels.. And had PMW over Lights.. And immediately I took off what I was sporting and slapped these gems on. It was basically like having heaven on display on my nails for a few days. Yeah, these two together made me THAT happy.



Ahh yes.. and looking at these photos - this was also the day I clipped down my nails again. I just love me some short nails! I apologize for not including my index finger in the shot.. I clipped it out.. That finger was covered in green nail polish.. I was working on something (:

This was actually Essie Lights over Orly White Out (I prefer to put neons on over a base of white.. I feel it makes them look more awesome and opaque!), then a coat of OPI Pirouette My Whistle. I seriously love this and almost want to just do this again. Actually, maybe it will be my next pedicure!

That is all for today - see you all again real soon!

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!
