Pastel, Dots + Flowers

Hey everyone!

I went seeking advice via my FB page the other day aka a week or two ago (yikes!) and asked for suggestions. A local pal suggested spring nails, as in pastels and flowers as we started to see spring-ish weather at the time.. then it snowed for a few more days.. anyways, that is besides the point.

I took her suggestion and did pastel nails, dots, and then flowers - I used a different technique this time.. not sure if I am totally jazzed about the results - I think I will want to tweak that method a touch or three.


I used:

  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI What's With The Cattitude?
  • Daisy Nail Lacquer Sachet Pink
  • China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint
  • China Glaze Lemon Fizz
  • China Glaze Sweet Hook
  • China Glaze Sunday Funday
  • OPI Ogre-The-Top Blue
  • China Glaze White on White
  • OPI Jade Is The New Black
  • China Glaze Gaga For Green
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

PHEW! Oh, right, I also used a dotting tool annnnd a tiny brush. I did really love this idea.. but my flowers and leaves aren't desirable in my eyes. I will get it right next time.. right?!

Take care until next time!!

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.
