31DC2013 - 03 - Yellow + One Gross Nail Break

Hey everyone..

So, I do my challenge day nails a few days in advance - especially at the start.. because the start fell on a long weekend when I had plans made, it is always nice to have a little lee-way, nice to be a bit ahead in case real life comes to haunt you a bit.. etc.

Well. This post will contain a slightly graphic photo of a severe nail break. I mention this because my "long for me" nails will be gone after this post. I was going back and forth about clipping my nails or not because of this nail break.. In the end, I decided to clip them all off. They can grow back. Right?! Anyways, on to the post.

I decided to bust out a rad new glitter polish that was sitting in my untried bag. I knew I'd base my nails in my favourite yellow polish, top it with the glitter, and life would be good. I don't know what is with me and glitter polish lately, but no matter what I do, how long I wait, etc, I keep getting little bubbles show up. UGH. Oh well, such is life.


This is Candy Lacquer Citrus Smoothie over China Glaze Lemon Fizz.. and bubbles. Life ruiners.

And.. the nail break..


Thankfully it isn't on my "photo hand", and now it doesn't hurt.. but for the first 3 days? OUCH!!

How did I do this, you ask.. well.. I went to open a window.. I did not notice that the stick was in the ledge.. I went to slide it open, and I heard this perfect little 'cracking' sound. You all know that the little 'cracking' sound is never a good thing.. I didn't even want to look. But I did. A nice crack basically through the middle of my nail. The worse part? It wouldn't come off. I had to wiggle my nail off. Sigh. That was a traumatic night. My poor ring finger had the shakes for the next day.. Good times.

Well, see you all again tomorrow!!

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!

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.

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.
