Rainbow Leopard Nails

I am a fan of Kelly-Anne of Tiny Tangerines.. And when she posted these up, I bookmarked it for safe keeping. Last night I was scouring through all of my saved links and images.. I was so indecisive, until I saw these again - then I knew exactly what I had to do!



I used just a wealth of nail polish.. So, let's get started on the list: China Glaze Sugar High, China Glaze Heli-Yum, China Glaze Breakin', Essie Orange, It's Obvious!, China Glaze Lemon Fizz, BYS Yellow Sunshine, China Glaze Gaga For Green, Butter London British Racing Green, OPI What's With The Cattitude?, OPI No Room For The Blues, China Glaze Sweet Hook, China Glaze Spontaneous, Essie Shine Of The Times, and Orly Liquid Vinyl.

Lots of colours, lots of activity, lots of love!

Though I did wreck them while making supper this evening. LAME! But I guess that gives me an excuse to try out something that arrived today (ommmminous!!!)

Also.. I'M AT 400 FOLLOWERS! What?! I am so excited! I have to collect a few more goodies, then I can post up a little giveaway, awwwwe yeah!

Thank you to each and every one of you that has taken a glance or three at what I have ever posted - and then decided to click 'follow', you're all amazing, and I appreciate you all!

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
