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 I'm on probably the most outdated computer I have personally ever used.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!

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!
