31DC2013 - 15 - Delicate Print

Hey everyone!

Another sort of internal debate day for me.. I figured I would just stamp something on my nails.. but, I really hate nail stamping. The only successful stamp I usually get is my sweet baby snakeskin, and I did that already.. and I didn't like any of the hundreds of possibilities I have via plates. What to do?

I looked in the drawer where I keep all my plates, stamping gear, and nail "stuff" aka rhinestones, studs, etc. My ex-co-worker's daughter-in-law bought a wealth of supplies that she really didn't have any use for - she got them for a really good deal and then asked her mother-in-law to ask me if I would be interested in the stuff.. I figured why not.. I have people that ask me to do their nails from time to time that like having extra activity on their nails - it is good to have kicking around.

Anyways, back on track.. I looked at the items, and saw these adorable little butterfly appliques.. When would I ever use them? Hey. Why not use them for 'delicate print' day? Butterflies are delicate.. these are gold and rose gold.. why not paint my nail black, toss on some of these bad boys, and toss some gold dots around them? Now that is delicate.. right?!


I can't even lie.. I am kind of pleased with myself on these nails. I think they are adorable and delicate.. I mean, as delicate as I can be, really. I also didn't add a top coat - I liked the whimsical feel of the butterflies not being sucked right against my nails.

Based my nails with Orly Liquid Vinyl, tossed on the butterflies using some Color Club clear coat, and dotted the rest of the open space using Orly Glitz.

That is all for today - see you back 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!
