Mod Cloth Bubbly Beverage Dress

Hey everyone!

The other day, I was contacted by a ModStylist over at ModCloth and asked if I wanted to participate in a nail art challenge; the challenge? To do a design based off of one of the zillion dresses currently offered on the website. Uhh, yeah, I would love to do that!

Unfortunately, I had a very busy weekend and the post is due up by Monday, but I was able to sit down earlier and really go through the dresses that I had selected as inspiration. Then I figured I would choose a dress that I would absolutely, 100% wear. Then it was easy. Something black.. with white.. and dots! There were a few options, but I went with the Bubbly Beverage Dress.

At first, I did most of the nails just featuring one of the dot designs.. which was large dots with mini black dots running throughout, medium dots, and small dots. I was fairly happy with it.. then I decided that each nail should feature all dot designs (except for my pinky) and in the same triangular fashion. Awesome. I liked where I was going.. thhhhen.. I was like 'duh, I would definitely add in a pop of red', quickly change my ring finger to an accent nail of red. Perfect. This is how I would paint my nails if I owned this dress. Actually, I would sport these nails at any point in time.


I used:

  • Duri Rejuvacote (base coat)
  • Formula X for Sephora Dark Matter
  • Formula X for Sephora White Matter
  • piCture pOlish O'Hara
  • HK Girl Glisten & Glow
  • Various dotting tools
  • Tiny Brush

Now my question for all of you: what would be your choice of dress from the website, and how would you paint your nails? Leave me a comment and let me know.

Take care until next time!!

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).

Countdown To Halloween 2016 - 7 Days

Hey everyone!

I am not going to pretend I am not amped for this time of year. It really is the most wonderful time!

I am again doing a countdown to my favourite day with fun nail art that you could recreate from my recreations and sport on Halloween. Yup!

I obviously need to kick this off with a bang, and when I saw these, I literally 'yasssssssssssssssssssss'ed at my computer. True story.

I saw THIS PHOTO on pinterest, and then tracked them down on Armstrongnail's IG. Obsessed!

And my take..


My sole mission was to make the wounds look as gnarly and gooey as possible (when I sent my sister some behind the scenes photos, she liked the original look.. but I literally told her I opted to make them 'gooier' - legit scientific term)

Anytime I can destroy my polished nails to make wounds is a great day to me!
