31DC2014 - Day 22 - Inspired By A Song

Hey everyone!

Right when the #31DC2014 was about to begin, my bff was in Toronto with her sister.. so I sent her a text about a handful of days within the challenge that were, well, basically my kryptonite, and asked for her help. Not only did she give me ideas, but her sister put in some ideas as well.. so now I should be all set to get through the challenge. Did I mention that I love them? And if they happen to peruse this -- love you guys! Thank you!

The idea for this day was to do nails inspired by Nicki Minaj's Anaconda.. perfect! Snake skin nails, I can do that! I actually sat down to watch the video to get ideas for colours. Um, yeow! What a video! Anyways, I decided my palette would be hot pink, black, and gold.

Love.


I started off with a base of FxFS White Matter to help make Orly Neon Heat pop! Then I stamped with FxFS Dark Matter and the BM-215 plate, and followed up with a stamp of Orly Glitz.

These photos do not do these gems justice. I am obsessed with how they turned out! I will definitely sport these again when the challenge is all over!!

See you 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.
