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!!

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.

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.
