Dots & Skulls

If any of you have seen the movie 'Step Brothers', please say 'Dots & Skulls' like 'Boats & Hoes' and you'll appreciate the title of this post at least 15% more. I promise.

Hello everyone!!

My BFF bought me a couple of gem nail polish for my birthday.. and ever since opening the gift, I have not been able to get L'oreal Tangerine Crush out of my head. I was thinking about doing this skull print from a fabric swatch I have come across a time of three, but for some reason I thought Tangerine Crush was a shimmer polish and not a creme. I'm thankful I swatched it first.. it is a creme polish and would be a perfect base for what I had planned.. I am not even going to lie, I am extremely jazzed about how these nails turned out!

 


Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
L'oreal Tangerine Crush
China Glaze White On White
Dotting Tool
Nail Art Brush
Poshe Top Coat
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


I went with 3 coats of Tangerine Crush (side note: I am seriously in love with this polish!), then I added "large" dots of white on my nails.. then I added some smaller dots (side note for myself: when you do this again in the future, do the little dots at the end.. so you don't have a panic attack about spacing!), then I used a little brush and added a "box" at the bottom of the large dots for a "jaw".

Ok. I know.. Looking at the photos you might be like 'um, these look awful', but, BUT, from a normal human contact distance, they look bad ass. I received many compliments on them thus far AND people are like 'wow, skulls? those are great!'

That is all for now.. Thanks for the amay-za-zing polish Gord! I love it!!

Take care until ne- oh, wait a moment.. I got some nail mail today.. If I wasn't so pleased with these nails, which I'm currently sporting, I'd toss one of these on right meow - but - when I am done with this (aka when it chips) - what would be your first choice in polish?

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).

Party In The Hills

Hey everyone!

Phewwww!

After all the danger, excellence, and excitement from the 31 Day Challenge, I am not going to lie, I am a little burnt out. Top that off with just.. a rough life-patch, well, it just leaves this nail art enthusiast less-than enthused.

I did do a couple of swatch photos for some polish that I had been admiring from afar, so I will share those. And I do have a couple more coming my way. But.

Despite having naked nails at work today, I did paint a full set.. but.. you won't see those for awhile. I am.. working. On something. I mean, I am sure it is guessable, but hey. Act surprised.

A few weeks back, I spotted some swatches of Orly Party In The Hills, and not only is it gorgeous, but it reminds me of this polish that a patient wears - and I always mention it.. and it also reminds me of The Weeknd. I am obsessed. It is a thing. His little sassy neck thing in the video for Starboy - I die.

Anyways.

This.. polish.. is.. amazing!

I slapped on a coat of my favourite…
