My Hello Kitty Mani For Stephie

A few months back, while on the P.A.A facebook page, a gal named Stephie had posted something about a birthday group. It sounded rad. I posted something about it sounding like fun, and she offered me to pick a month - just like that I was a part of something, no questions asked.

Stephie got a group of 12 people together in no time, and immediately got us all connected and interacting with each other. Now, when I go on to FB on my computer, my 'Dirty Dozen' group is the first thing I go check on. It is weird had quickly you can become attached to a group of people..

Well. Something awful happened yesterday. We were told that Stephie had passed away. I should have known something was off. I had not seen an update from her in a few days - but I knew she was visiting with her sisters, so I figured she was just really busy.

It is unbelievable how quickly a life can be taken away. I didn't actually (ok, in real life?) know Stephie, but I felt an instant friendship form with her. She was very loving and kind - and things in her life were starting to go in a good direction for her. So sad.

Silver (another awesome gal from the group) had mentioned doing a Hello Kitty themed mani in her honour to post up for today. I knew I had to do something for her. So Stephie, my nail polish loving darling, this one is for you!


I knew Stephie wasn't a huge fan of red, so I went with some pink activity instead. I also tossed on some glitter polish that she had sent me during my birthday month. Her presence will definitely be missed by all of us within The Dirty Dozen and the nail polish community.

Take care today everyone, and remember to tell your loved ones how much you love them - at any and all times that you have a chance.

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!
