Clowning Around

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you a post that I wouldn't normally want to share.. but what has happened has been very strange to me.. and I'm also kind of wondering if it has happened to any one else before.


Notice the bubbles? They didn't show up until day two of wear. Seriously. And, there wasn't too many.. this photo was taken on day four of wear. Lots of bubbling - and, if you look at some of the glitters (like the neon yellow on my pinky) the polish underneath is being eaten away.. Weird?


Again, just all the bubbling. I am not sure what happened.. Or if it was just a bad mix all around? I found this very strange because usually I'm a "speedster" when it comes to nail polish/nail art. I don't ever wait for things to dry. This time, I waited in between coats of the base white, waited for it to dry completely, then added some Clowning Around, then waited for that to dry, and then used my top coat. I don't know if I should try my normal method next time.. So strange. Though from far away, it is adorable and super summer-y.

I used two coats of China Glaze White on White, a coat of Lush Lacquer Clowning Around, and topped it all off with Seche Vite.

Oh, and it looks awesome when glow bowling.


Has this ever happened to any of you? Bubbling a day or two after application? And the polish being eaten away?

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.

I used:

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

This Is Halloween: Zombies

Hey everyone!

I am really, really, REALLY excited to share my gross zombie nails with you for this day of the Challenge. I viewed the awesome nails (and subsequent tutorial) from The Daily Nail - I knew immediately that I had to try that out at some point in time.. and zombie nails seemed like the perfect time to do so. I didn't get mine as squishy as hers.. so there wasn't as much wrinkling.. THEN I had a great idea.. I would legitimately press on my nails at lift polish and peel it and make it look gross. Totally worked to what I wanted.. Here goes..




I had to wrestle around with some dirt before snapping photos.. I feel like it added to the zombie effect.. I mean.. if I'm a zombie, washing my mitts is not something that I really care about anymore.

I love these gross gems! Actually, my sister has requested that I do these for her nails on Halloween. The only thing I don't really like.. Is my pinky. I added too much of the puke-y green.. maybe that nail is just overly…
