Casino Royale + My Own Gold Leaf Top Coat

Hey everyone!

I am bringing you my first official "new" post of 2013! It still seems very strange to actually write 2013.. I kind of like it though.. anyways!

Just a really quick post with no nail art activity.. Just sharing two cool polish. One of which I maaaaade!


I started off with OPI Casino Royale, which, I am not sure if my top coat of the gold kind of altered the shade a bit.. it seems more red-toned in these photos, but it is a beautiful polish no matter what! I think this is what I wanted Essie Bahama Mama to be..

Then I decided to add my own gold leaf top coat. I just tweeze-d (super scientific method) a part pieces of gold leaf and added them to a suspension base.. but still! I made this! And I think it is lovely! And it wasn't very fun to make!

I am really excited about the nail that I am planning to do tonight. I've had this photo saved for awhile now and I feel like today is the day to do them. I just have to clean my make-up brushes first.. then it is "me" time!

Have a great night everyone, see you again soon!!

Love your DIY top coat! Great idea- it looks just like the salon brands that are way over my budget! :)

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.
