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!!

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).

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..
