Squiggly Colourful Ombre Nails

Yeah, I said "squiggly".. I know.. Weird!

I stumbled across some amazing nails on tumblr, I do believe.. I hit my print screen button, as I usually do, so I can save the image later on (I have a program for all my screen shots to be saved for my perusal later on).. Yeah.. Silly Dee! This isn't YOUR computer. Le sigh.

Thankfully my brain had some sort of photographic memory moment and I was able recall the general idea behind the nails.. I apologize to the original poster, if I stumble across your photo again (which I should), I will give credit where credit is due!

These are the nails.. And I received many compliments on them! I used Brucci polish for the green and yellow: the green doesn't have a label, but the yellow is Emmi & Olli Go Bananas, then it is OPI What's With The Cattitude, OPI Ogre The Top Blue (index finger), and OPI Elephantastic Pink, as well as OPI A Grape Fit (middle and ring), then the white is China Glaze White on White.

Now I just want to share two other photos with you all..

I am sure many of you are fans of True Blood - I am as well! We have a group of friends that come over on Sundays so we can all watch it together.. And of course there has to be snacks involved. I found these cupcakes sometime last year, and I think I have made them at least four times now (3 for the True Blood crew and once for a co-workers birthday).. BUT this time I decided to go with the recent fad of adding oreos into the cupcakes..


No word of a lie.. These were the best red velvet True Blood cupcakes I have made to date.. JUST SAYING!

And I thought I would toss in some Ben and Fonze for you all to glance at. It was cage cleaning night the other evening.. I figured these two clowns would behave on the chair.. I was correct, of course, and they looked too cute - enjoy!

My Top 10 of 2016

Hey everyone!

I know the whole 'Top 9' of instagram is a thing (I did partake...) but, I also wanted to do my personal top choices of the year. I think one of them matches the IG choices.. kind of neat!

In previous years, I think I selected top 'whatever number is higher than the current year' - but that would be 17, and I could barely make it to 10.. so.. 10 it is!

Let's take a look at all of them together..

We shall start at the top, and work out way through with links..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
