The Totally Doable I have A Life: February Nail Art Challenge 01: Glitter

Hey everyone!

The other day, while perusing through instagram, I saw that Rie of Nails And Noms had posted a photo about this February nail art challenge created by Californails (side note: I was not familiar with her before.. and now I might be kind of obsessed! Amazing blog! Scope it out!!).. I kind of glanced through it.. and then glanced at my nails. After doing some fairly intricate nail activity, only to have it ruined 2 hours later at work, I happened to be sporting a simple mani with glitter accent nails.. what is day 1? Glitter! It was overly fitting.

I obviously meant to have this posted up yesterday, but in the past 48 hours, I have worked more than I had time to sleep or just 'relax', so getting photos and a post up wasn't in my cards until today - I do apologize.


My friend Porter was over the other night.. and whipped off her sock to show me her pedi colour - and she asked if I knew what it was. She said the name was 'Suzy' something - OPI product - and of course it very well could be - but to me it looked super similar to OPI Lincoln Park After Dark. She said she had tried to find the polish for herself, but couldn't, but I showed her LPAD and she said it was quite similar and I know she can readily find this gem polish for herself.

The next day, I did my nails quite rad-ly, but ruined them at work within 2 hours.. fun times. When I got home I was like 'ehhh polish and glitter and done.. but what combo?' I immediately thought of LPAD and then butter London The Black Knight. And this was born.

Subtle, but gorgeous. And these photos were taken literally 10 minutes ago.. these gems made it through my crazy work schedule!

See you all again for day 4!!

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).

This Is Halloween: Zombies

Hey everyone!

I am really, really, REALLY excited to share my gross zombie nails with you for this day of the Challenge. I viewed the awesome nails (and subsequent tutorial) from The Daily Nail - I knew immediately that I had to try that out at some point in time.. and zombie nails seemed like the perfect time to do so. I didn't get mine as squishy as hers.. so there wasn't as much wrinkling.. THEN I had a great idea.. I would legitimately press on my nails at lift polish and peel it and make it look gross. Totally worked to what I wanted.. Here goes..




I had to wrestle around with some dirt before snapping photos.. I feel like it added to the zombie effect.. I mean.. if I'm a zombie, washing my mitts is not something that I really care about anymore.

I love these gross gems! Actually, my sister has requested that I do these for her nails on Halloween. The only thing I don't really like.. Is my pinky. I added too much of the puke-y green.. maybe that nail is just overly…
