28 Day Challenge

Is what I will be starting tomorrow.

I have been on a bit of a no-buy lately.. For those of you that don't know what that means, it basically means I am not buying nail polish for a certain amount of time. Though I should say I haven't been buying nail polish for myself.. I still have birthday group people to buy for!! Surprisingly enough, I have done really well. I think I will be getting close to a whole month soon! I am planning to hold out until late September.. Fingers crossed!

ANYWAYS! I didn't go on this no-buy by myself. In fact, I didn't even plan to do this. My amazing pal Silver said she wanted to go on a no-buy before her trip to Las Vegas.. Then she mentioned about all the untried polish she has.. And how she would like to do a bit of a challenge to use these untrieds up once she gets home.. Which she will be home tomorrow - aka our start date!

Her set up is going to be a bit different.. I believe she is going to be featuring a specific brand of nail polish each week. Unfortunately (or fortunately?) I don't have any brands where I have 7 to use.. I actually thought I really didn't even have that many untried to use.. ahem..


See.. I figured I would keep them all in this bag and be able to dip my hand in and do a random draw.. As you can see.. Um, there is no space to just dip my mitt in there.. whoops! I have WAY more untried polish than I thought. This is awkward..

SO! For the next 28 days, expect to see a "new" polish used everyday! Most of the time there will be no nail art activity.. Just a lot of swatch activity.. I still have a full time job and school to keep me exceptionally busy, but that isn't going to stop me!

Enjoy this.. journey with Silver and I! AND! As I said, we are starting tomorrow.. If you feel like joining in - leave me a comment so I can link to your blog/posts as well! That would be a lot of fun! Otherwise, you'll be seeing a lot from me friends (:

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!
