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).

L'Oreal Vert Absynthe & Gris Decadent

Hey everyone!

Yesterday, I bought 5 of the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche nail polish.. and.. I needed to test them out.

I used '666 Vert Absynthe' as my base. Guys. Gals? Whatever. It is amazing! The formula is exquisite.. and I could almost get away with one coat - but I, of course, did two.

Then I decided on a 'grunge' look. I REALLY wanted to use gold, but because I wanted to use gold so badly, I went with silver. I think it was a good choice.
