Galaxy, Dots, Studs, and Floral - oh my!

Hello everyone!

I am really excited to share my nails with you all today.. Exceptionally excited!

My sister (who is awesome) sent me an inspiration photo via text. It is black based nails, some gold bullion beads, and a studded gold cross.. I really liked it, and she said they should be my party nails. I agreed.

Then, I was looking at it again last night, and liked the whole concept, but I wanted more.. I decided that a mix was needed, but that the cross would for sure stay (I was going to say 'as an accent nail', but technically, they are all accent nails.. you'll see)




Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
China Glaze Liquid Leather
China Glaze White on White
China Glaze Sugar High
Sinful Colors Unicorn
China Glaze First Mate
China Glaze Fairy Dust
Orly Glitz
Essie Bikini So Teeny
China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le
China Glaze Gaga For Green
Lime Crime Pastelchio
Sponge
Dotting Tools
Gold Studs
Poshe Topcoat


Phew! That is a lot of stuff to use.. but while doing them, it didn't feel like that. I will do a breakdown of each nail.. Here goes..

Thumb & Pinky - Galaxy - Base of black (Liquid Leather), sponged on some white (White on White), pink (Sugar High), yellow (Unicorn), and navy blue (First Mate).. Did some "detail" work with white (White on White), and then globbed on some sparkles (Fairy Dust).

Index - Dots - Base of black (Liquid Leather) and used my largest dotting tool to add some gold (Glitz).

Middle - Floral - Base of black (Liquid Leather), made the "roses" using a mix of blue shades (Bikini So Teeny and Secret Peri-Wink-Le), did detail work with navy blue (First Mate).. petal work using two greens (Gaga For Green and Pastelchio).. Then they didn't feel complete, so I added gold dots (Glitz) and some sparkle (Fairy Dust) on top of the "roses".

Ring - Cross - Base of black (Liquid Leather) and gold studs.

I really enjoy "mixed" manis, and I think this particular mix is at the top of my list - for now!!

Have an awesome day everyone, and I will see you again soon!!

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!
