Atlantis Splatter Nails

Hey everyone!

The other day, whilst perusing pinterest, I stumbled upon a photo of splatter nails done by Chalkboard Nails. While I was starring at the little photo, I was like 'a sparkly based splatter nail! Great idea!' then I went to the post, and here I was thinking it was sparkly China Glaze Atlantis as the base.. nah, it was not.. BUT! It definitely put the idea in my head to use Atlantis as a base for a splatter nail.. and so it was.


Honestly, at first, I hated them.. I felt that the colours didn't pop enough, or maybe I should have used a lighter coloured sparkly base.. just blah feels. Then.. after 2 days of wearing them and allowing the sun to catch them, yeah, I like them!

I used:

  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • China Glaze Atlantis
  • China Glaze Spontaneous
  • China Glaze Liquid Leather
  • China Glaze Midnight Kiss
  • A Straw
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I also inadvertently used all China Glaze polish.. rad! I love China Glaze, and it shows!!

That is all for meow - see you all again real soon!

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!

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.

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.
