Retro Nails

Honestly, all I can think of when I look at these nails is the era of my favourite music: the 80s. That makes me feel that calling these "retro nails" is fitting. Go with it, ok?

My lines are very shaky on these bad boys.. I blame it on the fact that I did these at 2 in the morning (Saturday) AND Big Brother after dark is suddenly on a channel available to me.. And I hadn't watched the premiere episode yet.. and I wanted to see the 4 returners.. And I was angry that Brittany was one of them.. Then I was okay because Janelle is back.. So you see.. I was distracted!!


I got the idea from this PHOTO I had seen via tumblr.. I wish my lines were more crisp, but when I'm not studying my picture of them, we're good - and I quite like them!

Also, I owe an apology! Apparently my blog has been giving malware warnings? I had no idea until it was brought to my attention the other evening. I checked with google security and did these verification things, but it claims that everything is fine. To be safe, I removed my blog roll.. I also read that sometimes it can pop up because of links as well.. Hopefully it won't pop up anymore? If it does - please let me know so I can look in to some more!

This week marks my "I'm going to start being extremely busy" time.. I think I have plans for the next five weekends in a row? I'm tired already (kidding - it is going to be awesome!) I'm going to try and at least still update once a week.. I mean, I'll be going out and doing things, so I will have my nails done - it is just to remember to snap photos within the anarchy.. I got this (:

ALSO! Watch for my post tomorrow.. I'm thinking in the am.. oooh ominous - have a great night!!

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.
