Dotticure Featuring Baker Street

Hey there!

This mani was based completely on a drool-worthy photo from www.polishedprescription.com - and I couldn't be happier to recreate it using one of my hands down tops polish: Nails Inc Baker Street.

I received so many comments (compliments?) on this gem look. I also had two ladies at the clinic I work at, ask me if they were jamberry.. I had no idea what that meant.. must-look-up.. ahh, nail wraps. Awe, well, that was nice of them. That is what I assumed. Then, I had a bunch ask if they were acrylic, where I got them done, etc. When the various ladies found out they were my own nails, and that I did them myself, and no, they weren't stickers - they were astonished. I love those looks. How can something so simple evoke so many feels? Oh, right, because the colours are gorgeous together. Duh.


I used:

  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat (side note: I'm sorry baby, I will never stray from your exquisite base coat'ing skills again!!)
  • Nails Inc Baker Street
  • China Glaze Bottoms Up
  • China Glaze Rich & Famous
  • Dotting Tool
  • G&G HK Girl Top Coat 
After my nightmare-ish chipping issues, I have swapped back to my holy grail base coat. Just a real treat! This colour combo is just.. everything. That is all.

Have a swell day -- see you all again real 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).

Party In The Hills

Hey everyone!

Phewwww!

After all the danger, excellence, and excitement from the 31 Day Challenge, I am not going to lie, I am a little burnt out. Top that off with just.. a rough life-patch, well, it just leaves this nail art enthusiast less-than enthused.

I did do a couple of swatch photos for some polish that I had been admiring from afar, so I will share those. And I do have a couple more coming my way. But.

Despite having naked nails at work today, I did paint a full set.. but.. you won't see those for awhile. I am.. working. On something. I mean, I am sure it is guessable, but hey. Act surprised.

A few weeks back, I spotted some swatches of Orly Party In The Hills, and not only is it gorgeous, but it reminds me of this polish that a patient wears - and I always mention it.. and it also reminds me of The Weeknd. I am obsessed. It is a thing. His little sassy neck thing in the video for Starboy - I die.

Anyways.

This.. polish.. is.. amazing!

I slapped on a coat of my favourite…
