Neon Skulls Turned Unhappy Faces

Hey everyone!

Wow. I have been away from the blogging life for awhile now. I have not enjoyed my "break". Work, work, and living out of the hospital for a week in there has not helped anything. (side note: living at the hospital was not for me.. my boyfriend broke his elbow.. he needed surgery.. we lived in hospital.. well, he did.. I did part time, the other time was spent at work or not sleeping. Good times!)

Anyways.

I have some backlogged posts to get through. During my awful hospital-filled week, I did not paint my nails. I just picked that up again yesterday.. but I believe I have 4 posts to do before we get to the current activity. Should be caught up by the end of next week.. aka.. my birthday! Awe yeah!

I always get so off track.

Many weeks back, as I normally do, I sent a text to my sister asking her what I should paint on my nails. Her response this particular time was for me to do rainbow skulls. The idea = rad, but I have not painted skulls on my own nails in a long time. A nightmare ensued. Then, when all was done, at first - hated them.. but then.. ehhh they weren't too bad and it was 1 am, and work in the morning, etc etc. I left them.

One of the gals at work said they looked like unhappy faces.. and I liked that so much more! My subpar skull nails turned into awesome unhappy face nails. Life miraculously went on.


A wealth of polish was used.. and, much to my happiness and dismay, I have not put any of them away yet. Here goes:

  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • China Glaze White On White
  • Essie Lights
  • L'Oreal Tangerine Crush
  • China Glaze Sunday Funday
  • China Glaze Lemon Fizz
  • Formula X For Sephora Wham!
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

So bad. So fun.

That is all for today! See you again reeeeal soon!!

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
