Countdown To Halloween: 5 Days

Hey everyone!

I meant to have this post up muchos earlier today.. but then I was looking it over.. I just wasn't overly thrilled with the nails. So, I decided to watch a random horror flick via netflix. Near the end of this sad horror flick, I was looking beyond the characters at the wallpaper behind them. And it hit me: the bloody wallpaper look needed cheery wallpaper with blood splatters, duh!


Here is what I used:
  • FxFS Infatuated
  • FxFS Brazen
  • FxFS Unmistakable 
  • FxFS White Matter
  • m73
  • FxFS Flashy
  • Straw

I have to say, I did love my other Bloody Wallpaper look (see it HERE), but this.. this is more disturbing in my eyes.. because it seems like it should be so cheery, and then oh hey, blood!

I think my tip for anyone wanting to do Halloween nails, but doesn't really know what to do, or doesn't have a wealth of time on their hands.. grab a straw, grab some red polish or paint, and go to town - even over your existing mani.. Blood splatter makes anything seem a tad creepy.. and I want to keep Halloween creepy!

Enjoy -- see you all 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.
