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!!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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!

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.
