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!!

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!
