31Dc2014 - Day 18 - Half Moons + 500th Post!!

Hey everyone!

Phew. I am now alllll caught up on posts. Having the internet back is.. well, it is basically magical. As much as I would like to think I am not a slave to the internet, I am. Everything that I like to do for 'me time' is pretty much directly linked. I know, sad, but honest.

I honestly had zero plan for half moon nails. I figured I would do some leopard-esque print just on the half moon part.. then it looked lame to me.. so I leopard-i-fied everything.. added some gold dots.. it was tolerable.


I should have done the light colour first.. but I didn't.. which is why you can see the dark colour still peeking out around the bottom edge.. just pretend it is not there. I do.

I used OPI Miami Beet, then I did some half moon-age with OPI You're So Vain-illa. I did the leopard detail with FxFS Dark Matter and then added some gold dots with OPI My Favo(u)rite Ornament.

That is all for now.. oh.. guess what is on the horizon. My arch nemesis.. water marble. At least there is galaxy nails first. Should help me remain calm!!

See you all again tomorrow!! -- oh, right, and this is my 500th post! Zoiks! Nice! and Rad! All at the same 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.
