Fun Rainbow Nails Instead of Tape Mani Nails

Fair compromise, right?

Hey everyone!

Today I am supposed to post up my tape mani part of the challenge.. Well.. I just went to edit photos.. and.. they are beyond photo editing. It is seriously awful. I don't remember them being so terrible at the time of taking photos, but just trust me, bad!

BUT! I based the mani I am currently sporting off of a photo on pinterest, and they are much more exciting. I figure I will share those with you all instead, and it will make up for the mess that would have been my tape mani. Fair trade!



Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
China Glaze White On White
Essie Lollipop
OPI A Roll In The Hague
China Glaze Golden Opportunity
Essie Mojito Madness
OPI No Room For The Blues
OPI Ogre The Top Blue
Dotting Tool
Little Brush
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


I got this amazingly rad idea HERE - I particularly like the small and uniformity of her dots.. actually, I just like the whole thing, hence why I had to recreate it.

I obviously started with a white base on all of my nails, then, when I did a freehand stripe of colour, I'd go around to all of my nails and add dots in that colour - I really put my polish blobs to work!

They almost remind me of a clown.. and that terrifies me and delights me all at the same time. I never said I was very sane.

Well, that is all for today. Sorry it isn't a tape mani (officially my second nemesis in the nail art world!) - see you all 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.

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.
