Pineapple Mani + Summer Nail Art Challenge Entry

Hey everyone!

I came across a tutorial for some seriously adorable nails.. and I knew I had to copy them immediately because the nails featured pineapples, and to me, pineapples scream summer.. and.. well, it is summer right now, so, it was basically the perfect time. Makes sense, right?!

I followed THIS TUTORIAL for the most part.. kind of took my own spin, but that is usually how that works, for me anyways..

Then, once they were done, I thought to myself: 'there is too much blank space', and I quickly added in some pink dots. Perfection!


I used:

  • Duri Rejuvacote (base coat)
  • China Glaze Sweet Hook
  • Sally Hanse Pacific Blue
  • Lime Crime Once In A Blue Mousse
  • China Glaze Fairy Dust
  • Fan Brush
  • HK Girl Glisten & Glow
Also, the day I was first sporting these nails, I got a message from Nail Polish Canada about a Summer Nail Art Challenge - ahh fitting, these are a perfect entry for that! Two birds, meet one stone.

I did receive sooo many compliments on these nails! I even received a few comments asking if they were jamberry nails, and then when they found out I did them myself, they were sad because they wanted to order them. Ahh.. good times!

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

P.S -- if you have looked at these and thought 'hey, these are actually quite cute!' then maybe you could spare another moment, head on over HERE, and give me a little vote-ski? That would be rad!

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).

Formula X The Match CLIX! Swatch Post

Hey everyone!

Last weekend, as I bopped in to Sephora to nab some retexurizing pads I was out of, I took a quick peruse of the store, as one does - but my pal that I was with had strict instructions to keep me fairly focused (that, and we had a movie starting in like.. 30 mins)

Anyways! In the back of my mind, I was also wanting a 'nude' polish because of an image I had saved from IG. Took a look at these Formula X The Match CLIX! in 'Fair/Light' and quickly made my way to the till.

My plan was to immediately swatch all of them and just post them.. but I used the blue first, was obsessed and wanted to wear it as a full mani with an accent nail - so I did the rest of my swatches with an accent nail as well - two birds, meet one stone.. all of these accent nail polishes that I used we in my untried rack. Seriously, winning.


The four colours in the set were designed to complement the skin tones specified - and I think they did an exceptional job with the fair/light shades…

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!
