31DC2014 - Day 2 - Orange

Hello everyone!

Day 2 of #31DC2014 prompts me to do orange nails.. now, in my original map out of ideas, my first five days were fruit/veggie inspired nails.. then.. I stumbled across some of the photos of those beautiful turquoise stone nails.. which quickly made me look at the day 4 prompt of green and say 'sold!'.

Then it occurred to me that the process of making the turquoise stone nails could potentially look rad over other colours.. such as the colour orange. Why not, right?!

Best. Decision. Ever.

I am obsessed with these nails

I started off with a base of my favourite orange, OPI A Roll In The Hague, on all of my nails.


Then I took some China Glaze Midnight Kiss on a bit of cling-wrap and dabbed that on to my nails.


I followed that step with adding a drop of FxFS Dark Matter into some room temperature water, then spritzing some hand sanitizer onto the polish and dipping my finger in.

LOVE! I really like how all the nails turned out.. though the ring finger upset me at first.. but once it was all said and done, I enjoyed its presence with the others. I was actually really displeased to have to remove this. I would have sported this for at least a week!

I can grasp this concept, yet water marble nails are still a myth to me. I am dreading day 20!

See you all again tomorrow!!

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.
