Borsch & Borsch With Sour Cream

Hey everyone!

No.. I'm not going to share my ma's expert Borsch recipe with you all (I say expert according to everyone else.. I'm not a borsch fan.. oops) - but I am going to share two Pirate Polish with you that have those names - that has to count for something!

When I had contacted the owner/creator behind Pirate Polish (Tara), I told her that I was told about this nail polish called 'Borsch' and that I had to get my mitts on it. She said she had some bottles available, they just weren't listed on her shop at the time - awesome! I was going to get one. She then informed me that she had a polish called 'Borsch With Sour Cream' that was to be a new release, etc, etc - would I be interested in that too? Uh. Yeah.

I have had these two gems sitting in my untried drawer some time now.. The other night I was like 'swatch them.. together..' so, I did.



I'm going to snag her description for Borsch: This lacquer has a beet-red base colour (broth), small burgundy glitter and red hexagonal glitter (chunks of beets), and metallic green bar glitter (dill, of course). Please note that the green bar glitter pulls slightly blue-green in the red base, but the intended effect is still achieved. 

And for Borsch With Sour Cream - all of that.. just a lightened base.. you know.. because of the sour cream - I know, I'm quite possibly a genius.

These two gems are a lot of fun - and exactly what I would expect from polish created in the likelihood of borsch!!

I don't see any bottles listed on her shop right meow - but I'm sure more will become available at some point in time.. until then, you can go stalk all the awesome goodies HERE - you've been warned, there are some pretty rad polish available!

Take care until next time!

Ohhh right - and remember to entry my GIVEAWAY going on right now - you still have 8 days to enter!

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.

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

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.

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…
