Skittles Leopard/Cheetah

I found a photo via pinterest of a look that Chalkboardnails had posted up.. I had to do something really similar to it because 1: I am never let down by what she posts and 2: it was too awesome not to do!

I am not sure how this will look on some computers.. I'm on probably the most outdated computer I have personally ever used. I mean, headphones are not even being recognized yet - NO SOUND :( but at least I still had Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8 on here.. Heh.


My sister and I had to do a minor bit of traveling this week for work, so I took some polish with me and did these  on our first night at the hotel. I am surprised how well nail polish held up.. Mind you, I wasn't doing any housework or dishes.. I guess that really helped!

I used: China Glaze Lemon Fizz (thumb), OPI A Roll In The Hague (index), Essie Lolipop (middle), China Glaze Gaga For Green (ring), Essie Mesmerize (pinky), Orly White Out, Orly Liquid Vinyl, and a couple of dotting tools from Born Pretty.

I received something really exciting in the mail the day we left.. I will have to get some photos and use it soon.. It has been a lemming of mine for awhile and I'm SOSOSOSOSO ecstatic to finally have it in my collection! Look for that hopefully some time this week. Now I'm off to wallow in my 'I don't have my normal computer, everything sucks on this one!' moment. 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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
