Notice of hiatus...


Hey everyone.

Today I have a quick post with a notice of hiatus.. I have been toying with this idea for the last month, maybe even two months. My heart just isn't in to "nail art" lately. I know, I could just be snapping photos of the single polish manis I have been sporting, or even the layering with glitter, but I haven't even been bothering to take pictures.

I may be back in full swing in a week, it could be more like a month (gasp.. could it be longer?).. I don't really know what is going on with me lately, but I'm just not "present" right now.

I think it is mostly because I'm miserable at my job - but I'm working on rectifying that situation, so maybe once I have fixed that part of my life, things will fall back in to place.

I hope to see you all when I come back!!

Take care until then.

From time to time I think most of us go on a break. I look at my blog as a nail journal for myself when I have the time I blog when I don't I don't :)
Hope you can find inspirations to come back soon. I see blogging as a happy detour from an uninspired day job :)

@Rainbowify Me: Thank you. I was lost for a moment. I knew it wasn't anything to do with my love for nail polish/nail art though.. Win!

@Tempera: That is a really great way to look at it - I must remember this!!

@Halifax: Yes, I do agree with that. A lovely distraction from my seriously mundane life.

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.

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
