31DC2013 - 14 - Flowers

Hey everyone!

Ok, I hope I am not putting myself out there on the 'crazy limb', but how many of you are internal debaters? (hah.. I really wanted to put master instead of internal, but I didn't allow myself to, you're all welcome!) Probably a good number of us are.. but.. I literally argue with myself in my head.. normally it is all legitimate kinds of things.. but, ok, a lot of times it is about nail polish and/or nail art. This was one of those moments. I was like 'ooh, day 14, flowers - roses, done!' 'no, wait, you do roses A. LOT. why not do something different?' 'uhh, it will be different - I will use different colours.. dummmmb' 'no, using different colours isn't good enough.. something not roses' -silence- -mouth breathing?-

After listening to that jerk voice in my head, I took to pinterest to look up flower nails.. roses, all over the place! I could feel my eyes trying not to cry. Then.. I stumbled across a photo.. and I quite liked the idea. The photo lead me to THIS POST and that post lead to these nails that I am about to share.


I still haven't decided if I like them or not. I'm mad about my black nail polish being so thick. Sigh. Time for a new bottle of Orly Liquid Vinyl. Anyways.

I used OPI My Vampire is Buff as my base, then I went in with China Glaze Burnt Buns, China Glaze Sugar High, China Glaze Riveting, China Glaze Creative Fantasy, China Glaze Sexy in the City, China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise, and Orly Liquid Vinyl.

I just.. don't know. I like the idea of them.. maybe I will have to attempt this again once the challenge is over and really wear it and see how I feel about it.

After taking the photographs, I was like 'should have gone with the roses' - but, I am glad that I stepped outside of my comfort zone, even if I am unsure of how I feel about the whole thing.

See you all again tomorrow!!

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).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
