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!!

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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
