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!!

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.

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

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.
