Jaffa Clowning Around

Hello everyone!

Just a quick post with a quick note: my next couple of posts most likely won't be nail art-y.. I am in the last couple of weeks of my classes.. so.. papers.. exams.. and finals.. all in a lovely row. Come on May 3! Anyways.. I will make some posts, but they will be a polish with some glitter on top.. Super original stuff here..

BUT! With that being said - I still think it is all kind of exciting..

I have a post waiting - it should have gone up today, but I want to share my nails as of right now instead - so you'll see the other gems on Monday. On to my fun-time nails as of this very moment..



Products Used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
butter London Jaffa
Lush Lacquer Clowning Around
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top coat


Admittedly, the awesome neon goodness of Clowning Around would be much more prevalent over a lighter coloured base, but I really wanted orange nails.. and I wanted to sport Jaffa.. I think it gives off a nice "subtle" effect. I did do white on my toes with Clowning Around on top. It looks rad. I'm not in to feet or taking photos of mine.. so.. none of that here (:

Hope everyone is having a great day! I go to write an exam tomorrow - send me good vibes si vous plait!

Good luck on your exam! I love Clownin Around over the orange.

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.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

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…

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.

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.
