Countdown To Halloween: 3 Days

Hey everyone!

Yesterday was a go at a photo my sister sent me, and today, and tomorrow, will also be an ode to the photos she sent me.

The mani for today is featuring mummies! Awe yeah! I have seen many, many looks for mummy nails throughout the years, but I am fairly positive I have never tried them out.. which is why it was about time to do so!

I have seen some pretty neat concepts, even water marbling the base, etc, but I went with a simple nude base, some white connected lines.. and fun eyes. This is one of those manis where once you have the base down, just have fun - do whatever you like - you honestly will not mess it up.


I coped some of the eye-age of the photo my sister sent me, and then did a few on my own - I liked the eyes from the photo she sent me because they reminded me of glasses, and as someone that is a glasses wearer, well, I had to!

I used:
  • OPI You're So Vain-illa
  • CG White On White
  • FxFS Dark Matter
  • FxFS Flashy

I honestly quite like how cheeky and fun these nails are. I hope you enjoyed this post, and I shall see you tomorrow with another one!

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!

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.

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.
