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!!

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).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
