Lush Lacquer Birthday Cake

Today I have a little "swatch" to share with you all.. That and at least it is something to post - right?

I have been on a bit of an 'indie polish' kick lately.. I haven't even been paying any attention to.. name brands? lately.. I have a wealth of new babies coming soon.. So I figure I should actually start sharing them!

I ordered from Lush Lacquer mostly because of my birthday group - July's lady said she doesn't own any indie polish, so I scoured Etsy, looking at so many pretty polish.. Then I stumbled on Lush Lacquer.. Awesome! I ordered a couple of me and a couple for her.. And now I am going to share one of the couple with all of you!


This polish actually does remind me of those "funfetti" kind of cakes.. I love it! This was also just two cots of the polish - I didn't even put a base. I figure though, if I did put some white underneath, it might make the polish pop more - but I feel like it does a great job all on its own..

You can check out more of the awesome polish at lushlacquer.etsy.com - and their shipping to Canada is very reasonable!


And remember you still have a little bit longer to enter my Sticks 'n Stones giveaway! I am off to the lake after work today - I hope everyone has awesome plans for the weekend as well.. Or at least enjoys themselves (:

Talk to you all again soon!!

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!

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.

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.
