Festive Floral Nail Art ala The Nailasaurus

Hey everyone!

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of Sammy aka The Nailasaurus' nail art - I mean, honestly, who isn't, right?! I was pretty enthralled when I saw her Festive Floral Nail Art post.. and I immediately pinned them because I knew it would honestly only be a moment in time before I would replicate them.

Sadly, I (as I normally do) didn't take a photo right away.. so.. they are a little bit 'worn'. I even tried to use my watermark to cover a weird chip - I know, I am beyond clever.


Love these. The lady at the MAC counter said they remind her of pin-up nails - I couldn't agree more.

Thumb & middle finger: 2 coats of China Glaze White on White and Formula X for Sephora Flashy for the dots.
Index: 1 coat of FxFS Flashy then 3 coats of OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It
Ring: 2 coats of CG WoW, roses made with FxFS Flashy and butter London Knees Up, petals made using OPI Jade Is The New Black, and dots made with China Glaze OMG
Pinky: 1 coat of FxFS Flashy and dots with CG WoW

That is all for now - see you all again real 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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
