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!

So much cuteness! Love how colourful the mani is, the cupcakes look delicious (I love red velvet and WHOO True Blood!) and your pets are so cute!

Those cupcakes look so good! In case it's not super secret, it'd be great if you could post the recipe so we can try them out too! :)

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. 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).

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!
