My Top 13 Manis of 2012

Hey everyone!

Last year I posted my top 12 manis of 2011, so, I figured this year I get to pick my top 13 of 2012. Now, these are what I consider my own personal top looks. If you disagree, you should post up one of my posts from the last year in the comments section. Without further ado & in no particular order..

Yes, it is basically just a special top coat, but it is seriously magical! I absolutely love it.. Read all about it HERE

I love this.. and the title I gave the post.. Oh The Weather Outside Is Weather..

Again, it may just be a top coat kind of polish, but it is a-may-za-zing! Check out the post HERE

If I had to actually choose one mani that was my absolute favourite of the year.. This would be it. Check out the full post HERE

Pinterest is one of my favourite places to find nail art (inspiration and straight up copies) - which is where the idea for this gem came from. Check out the post HERE

This was an adorable mani inspired from another blogger.. Check out the post HERE

My first, and so far only go, with an ikat print. Love it! See the full post HERE

I just love this whole combo. Must remember to do it again. Maybe they will be my birthday nails for this year.. Scope the full post HERE

I feel like I could have done this a whole lot better.. Might be something to revisit in the future. I still love the whole idea though.. Check the post HERE

I feel like it was year of the super fun top coats.. Sticks 'n Stones had to make the cut somewhere! Check out the full post HERE

I love these nails.. they are girly and yet not.. Check out the full post HERE

Another pinterest gem.. Check them out HERE

Domo.. um, I obviously love these. Peep the full post HERE

And there you have it.. my top choices for manis for 2012! Agree? Disagree? Let me know!

I hope you are all having a great start to 2013. Let's make it an awesome one!!

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).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
