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!!

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.

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

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
