The Story of the Snowman Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I am going to share with you, what I think, are my most adorable winter nails to date. Yeah. Bold statement, I know.

I scoped THIS PHOTO and absolutely loved the snowmen on her nails.. so I figured.. why not have an accent nail with a cute snowman and the rest of my nails as melted snowmen.. oh, and one more accent nail with just dots.. because.. dots are rad.


I started with a base of Formula X for Sephora Infatuated, then I used some China Glaze White on White for my index nail (dots) and as the base for my snowman and for the dots on that ring finger as well; the other nails received a good dabbed helping of Ninja Polish Melted Snowman, and for the details on the snowman I used Quo by Orly Instant Artist Black (hate the brush, but the polish is good), and Lime Crime Peaches (heart) Cream.

Can we just note how freaking adorable this snowman is?!

That is all for today.. I am about to embark on a serious cleaning frenzy, so my nails will need to be done again tonight..

If anyone is still with me up to this point - red or neutrals? It will help me decide what to do next. I am sort of leaning towards the neutrals.. but red is just so.. red and wonderful. HELP ME!!!

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.
