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.

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

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!!

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.
