The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge 2014

Hey everyone!

I know I have been a smidge absent lately, but I am gearing up for some intense postage, yes, that is correct - I am going to give another go at The 31 Day Nail Art Challenge. I have tried a few times over the past year, and if my memory serves me correctly.. I don't think I have ever successfully completed it. 2014 is my year! At least that is the mind set I am going with. I am quite looking forward to it this time.. also.. I am trying to be super organized as September is going to be a very busy month -- increase in work hours, a couple weddings (a few? there is 3.. 2 on the same day) and I am sure some party activities in there as well. Phew. It will all be worth it! And, like I said, I am trying to be organized - I have been doing some drawings to give me ideas for the actual days. Yay!

If you're interested in doing it as well, or just want to scope the layout, check out the photo. I know for sure Chalkboard Nails is doing it, and probably a wealth of others! Make sure to check around using the hashtag #31DC2014. I am even going to try and keep my postings on instagram as well. I was having a convo with my parents about my blog the other day - I told them I really lack in my social media-ing, and I plan to amp that up. Wish me luck?


Start checking back on September 1st! There is one post I would like to get up before the madness starts.. but I still have to create the nail look.. it is something kind of rad! Ok.. we shall see if I can squeeze it in in the next couple of days.

See you all soon!!

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!
