Summery Gradient with Leopard Activity

....I should never be left to my own post naming devices. Sigh

Hello everyone!

I was going through my nail inspiration pins.. as I do.. pretty much daily.. and THIS photo kept coming to mind.. I knew a few polish sitting in my untried bag that I could work some magic with.. I think it turned out rather fun.


I used China Glaze Highlight of My Summer, China Glaze Bottom's Up, Essie In the Cab-Ana, butter London Cheeky Chops, and China Glaze Liquid Leather.

I really, really like Highlight of My Summer and Bottom's Up.. but they kind of went on a bit streaky and dried very chalky.. but once a top coat was applied - all was well. I realize my gradient doesn't look too on point in this photo.. but I kind of like that the pink still shows at the top.. I just think they are fun nails!

I was also sporting them during this strange heat wave we were going through. It seems like we're going to  be cooling down a bit this week. I don't think I wanted any more 30+ weather anyways. Well, ok, if it wants to show up near the end of September, I'd like that. Push back "winter", please.

That is all for today! See you again soon..

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.
