Dove & Fully Turqued

Hello everyone!!

Today I bring you two polish that I am insanely excited to share! Plus x 2: I think this pairing is brilliant and the names of these polish are genius!

I will start off with sharing why the polish names are genius. Zoya Dove.. I use 'dove' as a term of endearment for pretty much everyone. I call people 'my dove' or 'my sweet, baby dove', and it seems to make people smile. I adore it. And I (heart) NP Fully Turqued. Okay, I know it is a play on the added turquoise activity in the polish, but it is also a play on being fully torqued aka a line from one of my favourite shows: Workaholics. (I actually discussed it with the creator of I (heart) NP - and that is exactly where she got it from! Yes!)

Enough explanation.. photo time!




Again, I apologize for the dry shape of my mitts. Stupid *insert whatever I am lacking in my life*.

Anyways, this was three coats of Zoya Dove (which was sent in my Private Pumpkin exchange from the wonderful Silver) and a single coat of I (heart) NP Fully Turqued. Love this combo. Though I feel an orange or a pink will be my next base with Fully Turqued. Yeah, it will be magical!

See you all later.. and.. Let's Get Weird!!!

Cute mani, and yes, that would look amazing with an orange base!

Fully Turqued is amazeballs. I'll never be done lemming. ;p Also can't wait to see it with orange. --0a burnt orange would be really rad. Thanks for showing!

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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
