Laid Back 31 DC - Day 7 - Ombre or Skittles

Hello everyone!

Confession: before I painted these nails.. I had bare nails for TWO DAYS.. in a row. I don't even remember making a full day with bare nails in the last.. well, couple of years. I honestly had zero ideas. Once my sister got wind of me not knowing what to do with my nails, she said 'do those roses on one nail, and cheetah print on another..' and then I thought 'hey, skittles are the next thing on the challenge list.. I can totally skittle with those ideas.' Because. To me, the whole "skittles" nails means they are all different, but related. She suggested hot pink polish. Done.





Products Used:
Nail Life Gripper (base coat)
China Glaze Sugar High
OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips
Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink
Ninja Polish Girly Floam
Rainbow Honey Pinkie Promise
China Glaze Liquid Leather
Brucci Lime Green
Brucci Roberta's Green Garden
Orly White Out
Gold Studs
Dotting Tool
Little Brush
Poshe Top Coat


Wow. Typing out the list of products used was a beeeast. Stick with me here, and I will go through what was used on each finger, and, if I bought them via a specific website, I'll link it up.

Thumb: China Glaze Sugar High & gold studs.. and some super glue and Poshe top coat.

Index: China Glaze Sugar High, Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink (from my amazing pal Silver!!), China Glaze Liquid Leather & dotting tools.

Middle: China Glaze Sugar High & 3-5 coats of Ninja Polish Girly Floam

Ring: China Glaze Sugar High, Orly White Out, Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink, OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips, Brucci Lime Green (no label..), Brucci Roberta's Green Garden, & dotting tools.

Pinkie: China Glaze Sugar High & 2 coats of Rainbow Honey Pinkie Promise.

These seem like they would be highly labour intensive, but I think I spent maybe 40 minutes max on them. And. I absolutely love it. They all work together, but are still completely different. Did I ever mention that I adore my sister??

Take care until next time!!

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..

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
