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??

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.

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
