31DC2014 - Day 6 - Violet

Hey everyone!

Day 6 of the #31DC2014 calls for some Violet nails. Ok. No problem!

I was excited to try out the tie dye technique, and figure this was the perfect day to try it! This was one of the situations where you're so in the moment of doing your nails, like I honestly got lost in this process, that once it was all said and done, and I took I step back.. it was kind of a hot mess. But I had spent a good chunk of time on these, and decided to just roll with it. Here goes.


I started this creation off with a base of China Glaze Sweet Hook.  After that, I would glob some new purple polish down and go to town. The other polish used are: China Glaze X-Ta-Sea, China Glaze Dune Our Thing, China Glaze Spontaneous, a England Lady of the Lake, and a England Guinevere. Phew!


The is all for today -- 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.
