Day 3: OPI Lincoln Park After Dark & Wet n Wild Back Alley Deals

Hello everyone!

Day 3.. Silver and I actually did a touch of collaborating today.. Because we're that awesome!!

She said 'purple' and I said 'yup' - well, it sort of went like that.. Which means I had to slightly cheat and actually dig through the bag, but I'm sure that can be forgiven!!

I grabbed LPAD immediately - I knew I wanted to use that gem. I used to own a mini of it - but I never did get to use it.. When I finally had a chance to grab a bottle of it, I did. I hear about it so often that I figured I should just own it. (Side note: fantastic purchase!!)

As I was putting the other polish back that had to be moved out for me to have some digging room, I realized I was holding on to WnW Back Alley Deals.. It is a purple and fuchsia glitter. My immediate thought: accent nail. Secondary thought: the cool kid taped accent nail that Silver did on her day 1. Yes and yes!


Ok, me and tape mani activity don't get along very well, so I'm extremely pleased with how this turned out! I might even get crazy with a design next time.. Woah - head rush.. better settle down here!!

Pictures and a gif cannot do this glittery bad boy justice!


The super inky purple of LPAD with the super fun-ness of BAD is just.. fantastic together. As I type this I keep clawing my hand to just catch the glitter in different light. I am enjoying this a bit too much.

I should also mention that BAD was a gift from Collette who is a member of my birthday group.. It is just exceptional and I'm forever grateful to her for adding it to my collection!!

I hope you'll have a great day - see you for day 4!!

P.S - Remember to scope Silver's blog to see what she has going on for day 3!!

P.P.S - I got to do nails for S on Monday. She chose the whale nails that I did that I originally found from MAD Manis.. Hers ended up looking less psychotic than mine - a very good thing! S, if you're reading this - I hope your first day of school went well and that your nails are holding up nicely!! Thank you for the goodies - I LOVE THE EARRINGS!!

The whale nails are SO CUTE!

I've had Back Alley Deals for like, a year now and I don't think I've ever got around to using it. Better change that!

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!

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).

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
