Day 9: Essie Fiji, NYX Dynamic Glitter, and Wet n Wild Stars & Stripes

Yes, you have read that correctly: a 3 for 1 deal.. and I am not going to lie, this is extremely cutesy and girly and lovely.

I pinned a photo of this POST from Neverland Nail Blog - and I think she got it from somewhere else.. and.. well, where ever this did originate from - you're a genius!

I loved the purple.. and I happen to have a lovely lilac purple to use from my untrieds.. but I didn't have any purple glitter (that I felt was good enough to use)..

As I was perusing what I could use.. I spotted Essie Fiji.. Yup, I wanted to use that adorable pink. Sitting close by was NYX Dynamic Glitter.. Hey, awesome! I will do another glitter accent mani - nbD - two birds, one stone. I was jazzed about life. Then I was scrolling through pinterest.. saw the mani again and I thought.. why not do it with the pinks?! AND GET STAR GLITTER FROM WnW STARS & STRIPES! kjhbkxjdgfhkdjg.. I have momentary spells of genius-dome.



Adorable, right?!

I did 3 thin coats of Fiji, then I used one of my trusty little brushes to do some "swipes" of Dynamic Glitter, then I used a dotting tool to pick up just the stars from Stars & Stripes. Perfection.

I abso-freaking-lutely love these! It is going to be a sad day for baseball when I have to change things up tomorrow. Le sigh. Thems the breaks, right?

Remember to scope out Silver's BLOG to see what she has posted up for today!!

P.S - This is my 300th post. 300th!! Yay!!

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!
