Christmas Galaxy Nails

Oh yeah.. I have gone there.

Hey everyone!

I am actually quite excited to share these with you all!! I had this idea pop in to my head at work a couple weeks back. During break, I grabbed my phone and wrote myself a little note of what I wanted the nails to look like. Yeah. Some might find that really sad, but those of you that are in to nail polish and nail art will be more understanding.. right?!

I feel the photos don't totally do them justice, but then again, when do they? They still make my heart happy.




I started off with a single coat of China Glaze Liquid Leather, then a coat of China Glaze Cosmic (LOVE), then I sponged on some Essie Leading Lady and then some green Golden Rose polish. After that I tossed on some snowflakes and "stars" with China Glaze White On White.

I am madly in love with the whole "galaxy nail" theme and I figured I could mash Christmas with them and add in some snowflakes.. which is how these nails came to be. I feel like I can do some more fun activity with this idea. I might have to revisit again in a week or two.

What do you think about my Christmas Galaxy nails??

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!
