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!!

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!
