Countdown To Halloween: 6 Days

Hey everyone!

Welcome to my own little mini-series.. Countdown To Halloween! I am going to be posting a Halloween-esque nail look everyday right up to Halloween.. mostly because I want to honour my favourite time of year, but also to give any of you some inspiration for nail art that you could potentially rock for Halloween!

To allow this countdown to commence, I decided to do something with the image plate that Nail Polish Canada sent to me. For the past year, one of the reps there has been sending me rad seasonal/holiday BM plates, and I never really use them. I love the whole deal with stamping, but I am horrid at it, so I avoid it as much as possible. But, when I was forming this series idea, I figured why not put that gem plate to use?! So, here goes.


The plate has 6 images, and sadly, I only have 5 fingers on my "photographing hand", so you get 5/6.

I started my nails off with a really amaaaazing ombre using FxFS Flashy and China Glaze Lubu Heels. I then used FxFS White Matter along with BM-H07 and went to town. Again, my stamping skillz leave much to be desired, but I think you get the idea. My absolute favourite is my pinky with the stamp with all the wording. It makes my heart smile!

You can snap up that plate, along with a cacophony of other goodies, HERE.

That is all for Day 7! See you tomorrow!!

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…

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.

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.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).
