Green Floral Nails Inspired By The Nailasaurus

Hey everyone!

I was really jazzed the other day by THIS POST over at The Nailasaurus - and I saved it for a future copy.. like, a ways away.. but.. I broke my thumb nail the other day.. clipped my nails down, and was like 'I must do that floral mani meow'. So do I did.





Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
China Glaze Gaga For Green
China Glaze White On White
OPI My Vampire Is Buff
OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips
Lush Lacquer Snow Globe
OPI Jade Is The New Black
Dotting Tool
Brush
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat


The only slight downside is my wavy stripes.. I always freehand my stripes because tape and I are mortal enemies.. I guess they aren't the worst, but they aren't super bad ass either. AND! I have this NEED to put little dots all over my floral nails these days.. ever since I did it for my birthday party nails.. I have to do it. I love these.

I cannot wait to show one of the resident's tomorrow.. she hates when my nails are green, which as you all know, is my favourite colour.. so basically she hates my nails a lot!

Have a great Friday everyone! I know I will be.. See you 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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
