Green x Green

Most of the residents at my workplace also try to check out my nails (as well as my sister's nails) to see what we happen to be sporting on them.. There is one group in particular that ALWAYS makes sure to check.. And I happen to know that they HATE when I sport green nail polish.. Which is awful (for them) as green is my favourite colour and I happen to love sporting green nail polish.

So.. What did I do? I went green on green.


This is two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Grass Slipper, followed by two coats of NYX Enchanted Forest. Oh, and please ignore my middle finger nail.. I had (have) a vicious slash on the side of my finger.. The bandage that I was wearing decided to leave residue behind - that only went away with nail polish remover. Le sigh.

These two polish were actually sent to me by two gals involved in my birthday group. I have been meaning to publish a post about it all - but I had been waiting for one other package.. I seriously doubt it will ever turn up.. So I think I will do a bit more work on that post, then I will be able to share all its awesomeness with all of you!

I loved this - the group I mentioned earlier: hated it! A win for me (:

Have a great day everyone!!

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…

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!

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.
