Super Bright Leopard

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you a simple, yet super effective, leopard mani. I absolutely loved this - minus 1 little, baby thing: I had a chip on my index nail.. after 1 day of wear.. and it just sort of flaked off. I am currently testing out a new base and top coat.. and.. this was not the start I was expecting. Hopefully the next go will be better!

Also, these nails, though I was super jazzed about them - so many people thought that my nails were fake, that they were stickers, or that there was no way possible that I did them myself. Sigh. You cannot win them all. Yes, these are my real nails, no stickers, or stamping, I did them with a dotting tool and a pencil! Whatever. Still a huge fan of them!

Actually, I suppose I should take all of that as compliments, but when you hear it so often, it kind of drags on your soul a wee bit. Rambling. Sorry!


I used:

  • HK Girl Stuck On Blu base coat
  • China Glaze Grass Is Lime Greener
  • China Glaze Strike A Rose
  • OPI A Roll In The Hague
  • Orly Liquid Vinyl
  • Dotting Tool
  • Mechanical Pencil
  • HK Girl Fast Drying & Super Shiny Top Coat

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

Ohhh! Wait.. I did snap a photo of my current untried polish.. with this mani, I knocked two out of the running..

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).

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..
