Lightning Nails

I had repinned this photo of lightning nails a little while back, and I went to the watermarked source on tumblr and just found a wealth of nail art ideas - so yay!

I just took the idea and sort of went my own way.. I really like them as I look at them right here, right now, in front of me - but for some reason the photo does not give me the same 'oooh, must ogle!' effect. Oh well!


I am also sorry about the bit of wear on the thumb - it has been a crazy weekend and I didn't take photos until this morning. Whoops!

I used: a base of Orly Liquid Vinyl, then I sponged on a mix of Orly White Out, OPI A Grape Fit!, and OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips (still hilarious) - then I used Orly White Out again for the bolts.

I hope everyone has had a tremendous weekend! I know that I did - and now I'm extremely tired out - bring on the work week! (Not really though.. can we just fast forward to next weekend please?)

Wow, what a striking look! (no pun intended, haha) Love the gradient look and you did a great job at making the lightning look realistic!

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.

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.
