Day 4: OPI Color So Hot It Berns

Hey everyone!

Sorry my post today is a little bit later than usual! It has been a whirl wind, slightly suck fest-y, kind of a day.. Up until now, that is!

I stayed up too late last night to make up my blog post for the morning (we are working our way through the first season of American Horror Story.. Does anyone that reads this blog watch that show?! SO GOOD!!!) - so I decided to snag all the sleep I could, wake up, take photos, and write a blog post all before work. Absolutely no problem there! I woke up feeling well rested for having less than 5 hours of sleep. Was ready within 10 minutes - leaving myself 20 minutes to take the photos and write the post!

15 mins and change left to write up the post.. My computer had restarted itself in the night. Lately, when my sweet baby computer restarts, it goes to a boot screen and my nightmare. I kept trying to restart in to safe mode to run a file check so that maybe by the time I was home from work, my love would be up and running again. What did I see instead: the blue screen of death. Whomp whomp!

Thankfully one of my mom's awesome friends gave us the name of her "computer guy" - my mom contacted him while I was at work - when I got home, we took the computer to him - he ran diagnostics - found out my hard drive is dying.. get a new hard drive - and he will get back to me once everything is up and running again. He says I shouldn't lose anything. FINGERS. CROSSED!

Sorry for the novel beginning.. My day was a nightmare that is now starting to not be SO bad! But my post is 12 hours later than I wanted it to be. Oh well, such is life!!



Ohh boy  - a treat (sort of!) usually you just get photos of my left hand as it usually turns out looking better.. heavy on the usually - this time I really felt that my right hand looked better! Top is my left hand, bottom is the right. Now, this isn't very good ikat activity, but I tried!

The red base, which is my new favourite red, is OPI Color So Hot It Berns, the white is China Glaze White on White, grey is Orly Mirror Mirror, and the black is Orly Liquid Vinyl.

Of course, on MY COMPUTER which is currently knocking at death's door (though it isn't going to be answered), I had all the links I wanted to share about the mani inspiration - I did some looking.. Ok, the youtube video link is THIS, and the photo link is THIS. Look at all the work I go through for all of you amazing people (:

I had many comments on this - mostly compliments, though one person told me they remind her of Dead Pool and that they are scary. I take that as a compliment as well, so, all compliments!!

That is all for today. I hope I will have my sweet baby back tomorrow and that I will get my schedule back on track.. Or close to it! Hope you enjoyed day 4 - see you back for day 5!!

P.S - remember to scope out Silver's blog to see what she used for day 4!!

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…

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).
