Day 8: Sally Girl Grape & Nails Inc Special Effects Sloane

Hello everyone!!

Another two for one day.. I think I might have to keep doing this to just get through all of my untrieds.. I feel like this should make me feel bad, but it doesn't at all!!



The Sally Girl polish is actually scented - which is probably why they went with the name "grape" as I feel the colour is not grape-like at all - but that doesn't make it any less lovely! It is more grey-purple-taupe in my eyes. I honestly didn't know it was scented, as it doesn't say anywhere on the bottle.. yet as I was painting my nails I said: I smell grapes.. whaaa? Then it all made sense.

The Nails Inc is from their Special Effects line and it is "3D glitter".. It is really in your face sparkle-y in certain lights - I obviously quite like that! And the base colour is opaque within two coats.. I cannot complain about that!! It is just really gritty. I even topped it with two coats of top coat.. I bet it will be a complete beast to remove. Oh well!

I included the out of focus photo as I feel the glitter give you a taste of how exciting the polish can be when the light hits it.

Hope everyone is prepared for Monday - and that you'll all have a great day! See you tomorrow!!

P.S - remember to head over to Silver's blog to see what she posts up today!!

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.
