Day 12: Cult Nails My Kind of Cool Aid, NYC Big Money Frost, Pure Ice Celestial, Sinful Colors Unicorn, Spoiled Pet My Peacock

Ohh yeah, this is happening. 5 untrieds in 1 post.

As I write this, I keep looking at these nails - because to me, in real life, they look amazing! Yet when I was looking through the photos, it looked kind of.. not amazing.



It all started the night before. I could have been a day ahead with posts.. But.. I had just painted my nails with Celestial, and topped it with Pet My Peacock. It was just sort of.. blah.

Then I was like 'why not peacock feather nails?!'.. then I hit the internet for inspiration photos. I stumbled across this POST - and I knew I had colours to match.. and they all happened to be untried. YESSSSSS!!

Started with My Kind of Cool Aid.. Then I did some "feathering" with Big Money Frost (thankies Danielle!), then I used Unicorn (thankies Des!!)((edit: whoops, apparently I have used this gem once before.. well then..)), then some Celestial activity (thankies Collette!).. Then I just felt it wasn't finished.. It needed some pizazz.. So Pet My Peacock came in to play.. (thankies again to Des!!)..

Again, I feel the photos don't do this any justice.. But I think it looks rad.. Eh, you win some and you lose some. I won this round.. my camera makes it almost feel like a loss. Merp!

Take care everyone - see you for day 13! And remember to go see what Silver posted up for today!!

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!
