The Baker Street Mix

Hey everyone!

It is no secret that I love blue nail polish - I am positive I have shared that fun fact many a-times.. (you know.. how green (any shade, ever) is my favourite colour, but in the nail polish world, I cannot turn down a blue!) that is still how it goes - BUT - I think Nails Inc. Baker Street is my favourite blue polish: 1. It is blue and 2. It is called Baker Street - hello?! Sherlock Holmes reference.. genius! I rest my case.

I came across this gem PHOTO via pinterest awhile back.. and thought that it would be a perfect recreation so I could bust out Baker Street.. and then I was like.. why not use some of my other top fave polishes?! Swell!


And these beauties were born. I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • China Glaze White on White
  • OPI My Favorite Ornament (phew - I wrote it without using 'u'.. that was unbelievably difficult, lemme tell ya..)
  • Nails Inc. Baker Street
  • Dotting Tool
  • Poshe Top Coat

I switched up my top coat this time - I was having trouble with same-day chipping while using my beloved Seche Vite - I am hoping it is just a bad bottle or something.. I have never had a problem with it before. This combo of base and top coat gave me zero chipping - I wore these for five days before I even started to have tip wear. Good times!

I will see you all again real soon with another fun recreation - I already have it picked out.. but I am having an internal debate. I have work in a few hours, and I have naked nails.. but there is a wealth of cleaning I want to do after work.. so it doesn't make sense to polish my nails now.. but I hate having naked nails. Sigh. The dilemmas we must face..

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.

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.
