Laid Back 31 DC - Day 13 - Cheer Yourself Up Mani

Hello everyone!

I knew exactly what mani I'd turn to for this day of the challenge.. It is something I have done BEFORE and whenever I stumble across the photo on pinterest or where ever, it makes me smile. Basically it was a no brainer..



Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
China Glaze Liquid Leather
butter London Cheeky Chops
OPI Metallic 4 Life
China Glaze White On White
Dotting Tool
Gold Studs
Little Brush
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat



I think I love this mani so much because it has pretty much every element that I like. Studs. Glitter. Dots. Black and white, and yellow.. I mean, honestly, how can this not be enjoyed? That, and my OPI Metallic 4 Life was a gift polish from my sister - so it means more than most of my nail polish.. Just the fact that she remembered me saying I wanted that particular polish our of hundreds - it makes my heart smile!!

What mani cheers you up when you're having an off day??

See you all again very soon!!

Side note: this will be my last day of the challenge.. I could keep going, but I don't like the idea of not getting to post up the other people participating in it.. and it goes against contract stuff. Anyways. It will be back to my own doings from now on. Yay?

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

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

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).

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
