Cleopatra In New York

Hey everyone!

Well, first off, Happy New Years eve! Any awesome plans for the night?

I am still not feeling 100% after this almost week-long battle with this nightmare cold, so I don't think I will be going out to celebrate this evening.. whomp-whomp! BUT! I figured my nails still had to be some what fun, even if they were just to wear to work.. I didn't want to put in too much effort though, but, I wanted them to be a base in case I do decide to venture out and can bling them up some more..

Cue one of my new polish babies.. Deborah Lippmann Cleopatra In New York. (LOVE the name!) I own quite a few black with silver polish, but none with gold and black come to mind.. I had wanted to get this one when the DL polish was on sale at nailpolishcanada, but of course - it was sold out! When my siblings and I ventured out to Edmonton, I made it a point to stop in to Murale just so I could snap this colour up. Mission: accomplished!


Black jelly-esque base, two different sizes of gold glitter.. what isn't to enjoy? This was two coats without a base. I feel it worked out quite well. Plus, it will be easy to add more activity to this should I decide I'm well enough to venture out (probably won't happen, but you never know!)

Anyways, thank you all for sticking with me through 2012.. shall we see what 2013 has in store? Happy New Year!!

Very pretty! I love gold glitter on a black base!

@ Sarah - Me too! It is really sad to know that I really never do it and didn't own anything like this before. Must make up for lost time!

@ Brittney - Thank you, same to you (if you happen to ever see this!) I am currently winning the battle versus this cold!!

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!

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.

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.
