Day 28: Lacquistry Lake Placid On Acid

Hey everyone!!

THE LAST DAY!

What an absolutely crazy (and wonderful!) adventure this has been.. and a little tiring - but in a really great way!

I said the last two days were going to be polish that I was really excited to share with you - now, I get to use this on a complete technicality.. which I am going to explain.

I had the "original" bottle of Lake Placid On Acid.. and I thought it was great. I did read about Jenna having to remake some polish because of bleeding, etc, but I honestly didn't think anything of it. Then, a couple of weeks ago, there was nail mail waiting for me.. and I thought "strange, I haven't ordered anything lately.." - it was from Jenna and it was a replacement bottle of LPOA.. I honestly didn't think I could like the polish anymore than the original. I was wrong.




So. Beautiful!

I put two layers of LPOA over a base of Butter London British Racing Green.. and I absolutely love this. I did happen to have a photo of the original LPOA on my nails. Not a great photo.. but, I can definitely say that I love this reformulation a lot more than the original. This was a polish that I bought specifically for its name - and I will be forever glad I did so.



Also.. my last day of the challenge.. did anyone notice anything?

I cut my nails right at the very beginning.. a quick refresher..


And I just let them grow to what they are now.. that is 28 days and now they are beastly long (at least as far as I am concerned). As badly as I want to chop them off - I will just leave them until there is a seriously crack/break/I cannot live my life with them.

Thank you all for checking in with me everyday, or every once in awhile.. We are about to head in to October aka my Christmas.. Expect at least one Halloweenicure every week (:

How about a quick overview of my 28 Challenge of Untried Polish..



 See you all again very soon!

OH - and - Silver is finishing up the challenge over at her blog - make sure you go check it out!!

Take care!

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!
